Cocke, W.J., 1967: Alternative cause of the solar oblateness. Phys. Rev. Lett., 19, 609-611, doi:10.1103/PhysRevLett.19.609.

We show that the turbulent viscosity forces acting on photospheric meridional currents could cause the solar photosphere to be oblate by more than ±70 km. Although the sign of the effect is undetermined, this might remove the alleged discrepancy in Einstein's prediction for the perihelion advance of Mercury.
