What You Need to Know About Planet Uranus
One can acquire a lot of knowledge about the discovered facts about the universe. More and more information continue to be collected using space crafts, advanced telescopes among other sophisticated tools. So much information has been acquired about the space such that one can have so many details about a planet such as the Uranus. To begin with, Uranus is the seventh planet from the sun. One would also need to note that there is mercury and Venus before one reaches planet earth. Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn tend to come in between the earth and Uranus. Among the reasons that made it too long to discover the planet Uranus is due to the fact that it is not only dim but also tend to take to love before revolving around the sun. It is the first planet that was discovered using a telescope. The planet Uranus tends to be known as the planet rolling around the sun due to its 98? inclination to its axis.
Uranus has an equatorial diameter of 51,118 km, polar diameter of 49,946 km and a mass of 8.68 x 10^25 kg (15 Earths). It is also known to have moons such as Umbriel, Oberon, and Titania. It is also a fact that the temperatures in planet mars tend to go as low as -216 ?C. One would also need to note that the Uranus orbit period is 30,687 days (84.0 years) while the orbit distance is 2,870,658,186 km (19.19 AU). It is also a fact that the name Uranus comes from a Greece deity known as Ouranos.
One part of the planet Uranus tend to point on the sun for about 42 years while it tends to be exposed to darkness for another 42 years. Due to water on the upper atmosphere, Uranus tend to have a pale blue color. It is also a fact that Uranus also tend to poses hydrogen that is also mixed with helium and a mixture of ice and rock at the mantle.
Uranus also tend to hit the coldest temperatures when compared to any planet. It is known to hit temperatures as low as -224?C making it nearly the coldest planet in the entire solar system. However, one would need to note that Neptune tend to be colder on average although its temperatures do not sink as low as -224?C. The moons such as Oberon, Miranda, and Titania tend to be frozen all with dark surfaces some formed of a mixture of rocks and ice. It is also a fact that Uranus has had one spacecraft take close range images displaying details about its moons as well as its rings.
