Uranus
Uranus is the seventh planet from the Sun. It is so far, it takes over 84 years to go
once around the Sun. Uranus is a large planet, 4 times the size of the Earth.

Uranus is a gas planet like Jupiter and Saturn, but is smaller than Saturn. Like
Jupiter and Saturn, Uranus has rings. Uranus has at least 27 known moons.

Uranus' rotation is different from that of the other planets. Rather than spinning like
a top as it circles the Sun, Uranus rolls like a barrel.
