Our Solar System: In Order From the Sun

Uranus


Next on our journey is the seventh planet of the solar system, Uranus. This picture shows the planet's faint rings and a few of its moons. The bright spot on the lower right corner is the snowy white moon named Ariel. The rings of Uranus were first discovered in 1977, before then Saturn was thought to be the only planet in the solar system with rings. Since discovering Uranus' rings, astronomers have found rings around all of the gas giants: Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune.

Fun Fact: Uranus is much farther away from the Sun than Saturn. While Saturn takes 29 years to make a single orbit around the Sun, Uranus takes 84.
