URANUS
Discovery 
Uranus became the first planet discovered with a 
telescope. 
The discoverer was William Herschel, March 13th 
1781. 
At the beginning, Herschel thought it was a 
comet, but several years later it was confirmed as 
a planet.
Name 
Herschel wanted to 
name his discovery 
“Georgian Sidus” after 
the reign of King 
George III. 
The name “Uranus” was 
proposed by astronomer 
Johann Bode. The 
name comes from the 
ancient Greek deity 
Ouranos.
Location 
Uranus is the seventh planet in our solar system. 
It's the third biggest, but it isn't visible to the naked 
eye.
Orbit and rotation 
Uranus turns round the sun every 84 Earth years. 
The distance from the Sun is about 3,000 million 
km (about 20 AU). 
The interior rotational period of Uranus is 17 
hours and 14 minutes. 
However, like all giant planets, the upper 
atmosphere has very strong winds in the direction 
of rotation. In fact, in some latitudes, the features 
of the atmosphere move much faster, making a 
full rotation in a short time.
Orbit and rotation 
During some parts of its orbit one or the other of 
its poles point directly at the Sun and get about 42 
years of direct sunlight. The rest of the time they 
are in darkness.
Inclination of its axis 
This planet is very 
curious because it 
revolve around the sun, 
sideway. 
Uranus tipped over on its 
side with an axial tilt of 
98 degrees. 
We don't know why, but 
astronomers say that a 
meteorite hit its rings and 
it deflected the orbit of 
Uranus
Features 
●Mass: 86,810,300,000,000,000 billion kg. It's 
like 14.54 Earths. 
●Diameter: 51,118 km. 
●Gravity: 8.69 m/s² 
● Average surface 
Temperature:- 224ºC
Composition 
This planet is often called “ice giant” planet 
because it has: 
- Outer Atmosphere, it's the cloud layer. 
- Atmosphere with hydrogen, helium and methane 
- Mantle with water, ammonia and methane ice 
- Rocky and ice core 
The methane ice crystals give the planet its 
greenish-blue color.
Moons 
Uranus has 27 known moons and others notable 
moons like Titania, Oberon, Miranda, Ariel. The 
most interesting Uranus' moon is Miranda 
because it has strange-looking surface areas like 
ice canyons, terraces, and others. 
These moons are named after characters created 
by W. Shakespeare and A. Pope. All of them are 
frozen worlds with dark surfaces. Some are 
mixtures of rock and ice.
Rings 
Uranus has 13 known rings. They are divide in 
two sets of rings. The sets are very thin and dark 
colored.The ring's particles are small. 
There are nine inner rings and two outer rings. 
They probably formed when one or more of 
Uranus’ moons were broken up in an impact. The 
first set of rings was discovered in 1977 and the 
second set was discovered in 2003.
