Uranus By: Marissa Frye

This video tells about how Uranus was found. It also tells about the moons of Uranus. It tells of people the people that have explored Uranus.

Uranus is the only planet in the solar system that is "On it's side". By that I mean that the north and south poles are on the sides off the planet. The theory behind that one would be that a huge meteor hit the planet a long time ago and it made the planet on it's side. Uranus takes only 18 hours for it to spin on it's axis.

Although it doesn't take long to rotate, the planet Uranus takes 84 earth years to revalve around the sun. Apparently the farther you are from the sun, the longer it takes to go around the sun.

Uranus`s rings are going around the top from bottom to the top because of the axis being on the two sides of the planet. There are 13 small rings going around this gas giant.

Uranus is the 8th planet from the sun. It is 1.8 billion miles from the sun. In diameter the planet Uranus is 31,763 miles.
