English

The strangest planet must be Uranus. It lies at an angle, so that the north and south pole is where most other planets have their equator.

Uranus was not discovered until 1781. It has a blue-green color due to the presence of methane gas.

Uranus has the coldest planetary atmosphere in the Solar System, with a minimum temperature of approximately −224 °C.

Uranus takes 84 years to orbit our Sun.

Den merkeligste planeten må være Uranus. Den ligger på skrå, med ringene i en uvant vinkel. Uranus ble ikke oppdaget før i 1781. Den har en blågrønn farge som skyldes metan. 

Metangassen sluker nemlig rødt og gult sollys, men sender tilbake blått sollys.

Uranus bruker hele 84 år på å gå i bane rundt Sola.

Hittil er det funnet 27 måner og 13 ringer rundt Uranus.
