Uranus is the seventh planet of the Sol system. It has a featureless surface, but 27 moons.
What makes Uranus stand out is its enormous axial tilt of just over 90 degrees. It appears to rotate on its side as a result, and its ring system is nearly vertical.
Uranus mostly consists of hydrogen, helium and methane in the upper atmosphere as well as water, ammonia and methane ices in the lower levels. It has a solid core of silicate rock.
Uranus has 27 moons named after the works of Alexander Pope and Shakespeare. Its five main satellites are Miranda, Ariel, Umbriel, Titania and Oberon.
