Prograde rotation is the so called "normal" rotation of planets. There are five planets in prograde motion and here is the list: Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, and Neptune.
Prograde. In our solar system, prograde is counterclockwise rotation or revolution. Retrograde is clockwise rotation or revolution.Clockwise and counterclockwise are "as viewed from above the Earth's north pole".All solar system planets have a prograde rotation except Venus and Uranus which have retrograde rotation.All the planets have prograde orbital motion (revolution) around the Sun.So, Mercury has prograde motion in both cases.
Earth's rotation is a Prograde Rotation
Saturn has prograde rotation
No. Neptune rotates counter clockwise like most of the planets do.
the difference in prograde and retrograde rotation is prograde dis counter clockwise and retrograde is clockwise
prograde (about the same as the rest of the celestial bodies in the system)
It is "prograde", the same as Earth's.
Prograde rotation is the counterclockwise spin of a planet or moon as seen from above the planet's North Pole; rotation in the same direction as the sun's rotation.
Pluto's rotation is retrograde
Prograde rotation turns counter clockwise while retrograde rotation turns clockwise. ( As viewed from above the Earth's North Pole.)
Neptune like most of the other planets rotates in a prograde rotation - anti clockwise. The exceptions are Venus and Neptune which rotate in a retrograde motion.
It is prograde. That's counterclockwise, viewed from above the North Pole.
prograde rotation! The only retrograde rotations are Venus and Uranus. ^^
"Prograde" means "in the normal direction". Everything in THIS solar system rotates counter-clockwise, or CCW. Well, ALMOST everything; there are two planets whose rotation is "retrograde", which means "in the opposite direction". The planet Venus rotates - VERY SLOWLY! - in a "retrograde" or clockwise direction.
Uranus has a pro grade rotation and that's a fact
Valles Marineris was formed by tectonic processes on Mars. It was formed from east to west, in a direction prograde in respect to the planets rotation.
Saturn spins prograde like Earth and all the other planets in the solar system except for Uranus and Venus. Even a planet's satellite revolve around their planets in the prograde sense.
Venus spins the "wrong" way as compared to the other planets, but VERY slowly. (A "sidereal day" on Venus is longer than the "year"!) The spin of Uranus is more or less "sideways" as compared to the other planets. All the other planets, and the Sun itself, spin "counter-clockwise" as viewed from a location high above the north pole. That's called "prograde rotation". So, all the planets in our solar system have prograde rotation ,except for Venus and Mercury. We sort of expect that when we examine other solar systems, we'll find a more-or-less even split between solar systems with clockwise and counterclockwise rotations.
