Uranus has an unusual rotation and tilt.

uranus, collided, north, south, planet, universe, solar system, seasonal

Because Uranus rotates on its side, something large may have collided with it in the past. Its magnetic north and south are likewise opposed to its polar north and south. Overall, this has some strange seasonal consequences. Consider a planet in which the south pole is aimed at the sun and the north pole is wrapped in darkness. That was the situation faced by Voyager 2 on its 1986 visit.
