Uneven polyurethane shine

I put a couple new coats of the oil based satinminwax polyurethane for floors on my floor. One room much more shinier than the other and we did them both the same way with the same cans of polyurethane. It looks funny because the rooms are connected. I'm not sure how this happened or how to fix. Advice would be great. Thanks

Polyurethane can take up to 30 days to achieve its final gloss. I would not be too worried about it.

Is it the exact same flooring in the two rooms and does it run in the same direction? On an open pore wood, for example oak, the sheen can look quite different from different directions relative to the wood grain. There's a fancy word for it: chatoyance.

It probably has a lot to do with lighting and angle of site. I suspect both room have the same sheen on the floor but how you view it makes one appear shinier than the other. I assume all cans were stirred well getting all the solids off the bottom of the can.
