If a planet, similar to Earth in size, distance from the sun, land mass, etc. were to have a natural horizontal spin (rather than the near vertical enjoy) what would be the effect on the planet? Would it have seasons? Polar Caps? What would these caps be like? In short, what differences would exist in regard to seasons, weather, temperature, and climate/ecosystems?
Re: What would be the result of a horizontal spin for a planet's axis?
