I was surfing astronomy sites recently, and had a thought about Uranus. With its unusual axial tilt, how would people phrase direction on a planet like that. (its axial rotation being almost 90% to the plane of its orbit in the solar system). I'm not sure if I've ever heard that people on earths southern hemisphere say that the south pole is "up" the way I hear people in the northern hemisphere say that south is "down". Have I been the victim of north hemispherian media bias? ;) I'll Forum ban myself ahead of time for this. LOL
