Uranus is one of the most interesting planets of the solar system. While there are other ice giants such as Neptune, what’s interesting about Uranus is the way it orbits the sun. Uranus has a tilted orbit just like Earth however, it is tilted so far that the planet orbits the sun on its side.
Just like the planet, its moon – Titania also has a lot of interesting aspects to study. The moon itself was named after William Shakespeare’s play “A midsummer night’s dream”.
While we do know a lot about the planet, we haven’t been able to examine it from a close distance. The only spacecraft to ever make a close flyby was the Voyager 2 where it took many photographs of the ice giant. No other modern spacecraft has ever been sent close towards Uranus yet.
This is also one of the best planets to see with a telescope and our picks for the best telescopes for viewing planets have some of the top telescopes that are available in the market.
