Uranus

Uranus is a planet in the Solar System. It is the seventh-closest and second-farthest planet from the Sun. It was named after Uranus, a god in Greek mythology.

Uranus was discovered on March 13, 1781 by William Herschel. It had been seen before, but Herschel was the first person to realize that it wasn't a star.

Uranus has 27 known moons.
