I believe Hathor was the name given to a gigantic ring of debris that once orbited around earth’s equatorial regions only a few thousand years ago. Similar to Saturn’s rings only much thicker due to a solar system besieged with dust and debris. The very same dust and debris (along with ecliptic debris = Isis) hazed the sun Red (from earth's POV), exactly as portrayed by the Egyptians. The Hathor ‘haze’ housed many a god king planet (& Re) hence the name hat–hor, ‘house of the king.’ A title that should be taken at face value.
Hathor’s bovine attributes are completely consistence with a ring of debris insofar as Hathor was many times seen to ‘suckle’ celestial bodies. This phenomenon can be seen today with Saturn’s moon Prometheus which can be seen to ‘suck’ material (milk) from its rings – a truly bovine trait.
I have written a short essay explaining all this and more here.
