Artist's Description

Uranus, Named after the Greek God of heaven and ruler of the under world, is a ringed planet made up of mostly gasses. In size it is halfway between the size of Earth and Jupiter, so, if Uranus were hollow, you could fit about 50 Earths inside.
Uranus has 5 large moons and 10 or more smaller ones.
The blue-green color comes from methane in the atmosphere, but methane only makes up about 2% of the atmosphere. The rest is about 84% hydrogen and 14% helium (much like Jupiter). There is water or ice on the surface, but it’s underneath a large hydrogen ocean. The average temperature on the cloud tops is around 370 degrees (F) below zero
Uranus mysteriously sits sideways in our solar system. Scientists believe a catastrophic event must have occurred during the formation of our solar system to have caused this.
At this moment, the south end of the axis around which the planet rotates is pointing at the sun. Therefore, the South Pole is in the midst of 42 years of constant sunlight; while the North Pole is having 42 years of night. Gradually the North Pole will point at the sun, and it will have 42 years of sunlight.
And I didn’t make any jokes about “Your Anus” :)
