Uranus…I am King of the Heavens and one cool side kick!
My most unique feature is that I travel around the Solar System on my side, rolling like a ball (not spinning like a top)
I’m the seventh planet from the Sun, named for the Greek God of the Heavens. A thick cloud cover of methane gas, which absorbs red and reflects blue, gives me my teal tint. I have rings and over 27 moons. My most unique feature is that my axis is tilted 98 degrees, so, I rotate on my side rolling around the Sun like a ball, not spinning like a top like all the other planets. It is believed that in the early stages of my formation, an Earth-sized object crashed into me, knocking me over on my side.
