I like you to have another look at this question: No I am not saying that, but if you look at it from the field of the sun "fixed" rather than from satellites moving moving with the planet. yes I am saying that for Saturn and Jupiter. To see why, please watch the animations in the videos below: http://www.animations.physics.unsw.edu.au/jw/rolling.htm Yes it is my contention, that seen from fixed points in line with the sun , watching a laser shining out from the equators of Saturn, Jupiter , the beam would linger in the noon position, but measure to move at ~ twice the orbital speed during the the midnight phase. To see the equivalent situation demonstrated in the NSW university videos, imagine the driving wheel carrying a laser shining on the floor and the ceiling during a rotation. The spot will come to a halt on the floor, but hurry along at twice the speed on the ceiling. Saturn, Jupiters equators move like that.
