Modern Planets [Astro*Index]

Uranus, Neptune, and Pluto. These are the slow moving outer planets, not visible to the naked eye, and so not known to the ancients. They were discovered in 1781, 1846, and 1930, respectively. Some astrologers have associated them with the type of world events prevalent at the time of their discovery.
