Uranus a beautiful planet indeed--7th planet from the Sun. It has the third-largest planetary radius and fourth-largest planetary mass in the Solar System. Uranus is similar in composition to Neptune...both are different chemical composition than the larger gas giants Jupiter and Saturn. For this reason, astronomers sometimes place them in a separate category called "ice giants"...


Mass one-thousandth that of the Sun but is two and a half times the mass of all the other planets in our Solar System combined. #Jupiter is classified as a gas giant along with Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Together, these four planets are sometimes referred to as the Jovian or outer planets.


Neptune, the coldest planet in our solar system with the strongest winds and a gravity pull that is closest to Earth's, yet with 17 times the mass of Earth.
