Uranus was discovered in 1781. Neptune was discovered in 1846. Is it easy to see and identify Uranus and Neptune as planets? Why or why not? How are they identified as planets?

Uranus and Neptune are made mostly of ice They have rocky cores Their atmospheres are

made of water, hydrogen, helium and methane Why are Uranus and Neptune blue?

Why are Uranus and Neptune blue? Methane absorbs red light, so all we see reflected is blue. Some of the moons of

e Uranus is tilted by ~90 degrees.

What are seasons like on Uranus? How did Uranus

end up like this?? How do you think these moons formed?

Here are the large moons of Uranus Do they look geologically dead or geologically active? Neptune has one large moon, Triton

A picture of Triton from the Voyager spacecraft Does it look geologically dead or geologically active?

Triton has a retrograde orbit (it goes around Neptune the wrong way) How do you think Triton became a moon?
