Uranus is the 7th planet from the Sun behind Saturn. Uranus wasn’t discovered until the late 18th century since it isn’t visible to the naked eye. Uranus is the only planet in the Solar System that orbits on its side, just over 90°. It is one of the two planets along with Neptune known as the “Ice Giants” because of the fact that they are some of the coldest planets in the Solar System. It has rings just like the rest of the Outer planets. It is named after Neptune, the Roman god of freshwater and the sea.
