Welcome to the world of factual information about space and universe. I hope you read my articles and if you have any questions and also want any other information related to my articles then comment down in comments section and if you like my work then please subscribe, share and do follow.


Planet Uranus is the seventh planet from the sun. This planet has the forth largest planetary mass in the solar system and it also has the third largest planetary radius. Planet Neptune and planet Uranus, both planet are similar to each other in composition, and both planet have bulk chemical composition which differ from that of the larger gas gaint Jupiter planet and Saturn planet. The distance between planet Uranus and sun is 2.871 billion km. The orbital period of Uranus planet is 84 year.the length of day in Uranus is 17 hours 14 minute. The surface area of this planet is 8.083 billion km square.

AGE OF URANUS : For about 4.6 billion ago when a large spinning disk of gas and dust was happens then all the planet were fix at there current position and planet Uranus is also formed at the same time as the rest of the planet was formed. So Uranus is also 4.503 billion year old.

SIZE OF URANUS : With a radius of 15,759.2 miles, planet Uranus is 25,362 kilometers. The planet Uranus is 4 times wider then earth. If we compare Uranus from earth then, earth will be in size of nickle and Uranus will be in size of softball. At an average distance of 1.8 billion miles ( 2.9 billion kilometers ), planet Uranus is 19.8 astronomical unit far from the sun.

COLOR OF PLANET URANUS : With the absorption of red light by methane gas in the planet Uranus's deep, cold, and remarkable atmosphere, planet Uranus is the blue-green color. It means that, Uranus's atmosphere is made up of hydrogen, helium and methane. Methane is in the upper of the atmosphere and methane absorb the red light from the sun but reflect the blue light from the sun back into the space. Hence, planet Uranus look like in the blue color.

WHAT IS URANUS MADE UP OF : Planet Uranus is made up of water, methane and ammonia fluids above a small rocky center. The atmosphere of planet Uranus is made up of hydrogen and helium just like Saturn and Jupiter are formed, but it also has methane. The methane gives the planet Uranus a blue color....And unlike any other planet,planet Uranus rotates on its sides.

IS LIFE EXIST IN URANUS : The ground floor. As an ice gaint, Uranus does not have a true surface. The planet is mostly rotating fluid. While a spacecraft would have nowhere to land on planet Uranus, it would not be able to fly through its atmosphere either.

IS THERE OXYGEN IN URANUS : The planet Uranus actually contains an excessive amount of flammable gases of both hydrogen and methane. However, oxygen is required compulsory for the burning of methane or hydrogen. There is no free oxygen on the planet Uranus, but oxygen is not always present 

TEMPERATURE OF URANUS : Planet Uranus has a speed of 90 to 360 mph and the average temperature of the planet is a friction -353 degrees Fahrenheit. By far coldest temperature in the lower atmosphere of Uranus is -371 degrees Fahrenheit, which collides with the frictional temperature of Neptune planet.

WEIGHT OF URANUS : The weight of planet Uranus is 8.681 x 10^25 kg.

DOES URANUS RAINS DIAMONDS : High pressure experiments show that large amount of methane are made from the methane on the gaint ice planet Uranus planet and neptune planet, while some planet in the other solar system may be almost pure diamond. The diamonds are also found in the stars and may be the first minerals.

DOES URANUS HAS RINGS : There are two sets of Uranus rings. The internal system of nine rings consists mostly of narrow, dark brown rings. There are two outer rings : the innermost one is red,just as there are dust rings elsewhere in the solar system, and the outer rings is blue just like planet Saturn's rings.

IS URANUS DANGEROUS : Planet Uranus is a harmful and dangerous place for its moon. In a few million year, things are going to get ugly. Planet Uranus is one of the farthest or distant world in the solar system, and one of the most dangerous for the moons orbiting it.


UMBRIEL MOON OF URANUS : Umbriel moon is Uranus's moon discovered in the year 1851 on October 24, by William lassell. It was discovered at the same time as Ariel and was named after a character in Alexander pope's poem the rape of the lock. 
The orbital period of Umbriel moon is 99 hours. the radius of this moon is 584.7 km. The gravity Umbriel's moon is 0.2 m/s2.

OBERON MOON OF URANUS : Oberon moon is also known as Uranus IV, this moon is the outermost major moon of the planet Uranus. Oberon moon is the second largest and second most massive of the planet Uranus moons, and the ninth most massive moon in the solar system. The radius is 761.4 km, orbital period is 13 days, the gravity is 0.346 m/s2 and is discovered in the year 1787 on January 11 by William Herschel.

TITANIA MOON OS URANUS : The moon Titania is also known as Uranus III, and it is the largest moon of the Uranus and eight largest moon the solar system at a diameters of 1,578 kilometers. It is discovered by William Herschel in the year 1787 on January 11. the radius is 788.4 km,  the orbital period is 209 hours, the gravity is 0.367 m/s2.

MIRANDA MOON OF URANUS : Miranda moon is also known as Uranus V, it is the smallest and innermost of planet Uranus's five round satellite. It was discovered by Gerard kuiper in the year 1948 on February 16, at McDonald observatory in taxes. The radius of this planet is 235.8 km, the gravity is 0.079 m/s2, and the orbital period is 34 hours.

ARIEL MOON OF URANUS : Ariel moon is the fourth largest moon of the 27 known moon of planet Uranus. Ariel moon orbits and rotates in the equatorial plane of the Uranus, which is perpendicular to orbits of the Uranus planet and so has an extreme seasonal cycle. The radius of this moon is 578.9 km, orbital period is 60 hours. gravity is 0.269 m/s2 . This moon is discovered by William lassel in the year 1851 on October 24.
