Rolling Uranus
By Cindy Grigg
  

1     Photo credit: NASA. This picture shows the sizes of Earth and Uranus as if they were next to each other.
 
2     Uranus (say: YUR-uh-nuhs) is a dark, cold place. The sun is very far away. Not much of its heat and light can reach the seventh planet. How much of the sun's light does Uranus get? Picture this: Earth's sunlight is equal to four dollars. Uranus only gets one penny of light!
 
3     The other planets spin like tops. Uranus, though, rolls like a barrel. This causes strange seasons. On Earth when the North Pole is tipped towards the sun, that part of the world has summer. At the same time, the South Pole is getting little sunlight. It has winter.
