Did you know that Uranus experiences a long 21 Earth year night during the Winter?
It is true according to NASA, as it provides us with many interesting facts (via the kid section) about the planet discovered in modern times. According to NASA, the planet is so far out it was discovered with a telescope 1781 by William Herschel.
Interestingly, Uranus is one of 2 (Venus is the other) planets that the Sun rises in the West and sets in the East as it rotates the opposite direction. The planet is the only planet that is on its side. Finally, the moons on Uranus are named after some of Shakespeare’s characters–you know I love to hear that since I am in love with Shakespeare–with names from classics such as “Romeo and Juliet” to “A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” If you are interested in more, click on the link below to discover some more fun facts.
