Abstract

Dicke and Goldenberg's oblateness measurement may be explained by an equatorial temperature excess of 30° K, smoothly distributed in optical depths ≤ 0 01 The resulting brightness variation with solar latitude is concentrated close to the limb, and it is not possible, with data presently available, to distinguish such variation from true oblateness.
