Infrared photographs of Uranus taken by HST in 1994-2003 and by Voyager2 1986

Infrared photographs of Uranus taken in 1994-2003 (Fig. a, b, c). During these nine years the Uranus has moved for about 38,5° on its orbit (the planet’s year equals 84.014 Earth’s year). We can see the same change of about 38,5° in direction of orientation (in relation to HST) of warmer zone of Uranus’ atmosphere axis and the orbit’s plane of its satellites and rings. The warmer zone of Uranus’ atmosphere clearly turns away from the Sun together with the planet’s rotation axis and the plane of satellites’ orbits. It is an unquestionable proof for that the Sun cannot be the reason of this irregular distribution of temperature in the upper layers of the Uranus’ atmosphere. If it was the Sun that warmed the planet so irregularly, then the warmer zone would always be turned towards the Sun. In the photographs taken by HST we can see a clear correlation of this warmer zone of atmosphere with the plane of equator and the orbit’s plane of Uranus’ satellites. The only logical explanation of such irregular distribution of temperature in the atmosphere of Uranus can only be the big asymmetry of its hot interior. That is why a conclusion appears that the ‘false colors’ picture of Uranus (Fig. e) sent to the Earth in 1986 by Voyager2 shows the position of hot inner core of this planet, not a layer of ‘smog’ warmed by the Sun as it was misinterpreted by the members of JPL-NASA Imaging-team in Pasadena.
