uranus_unmarked uranus_1157555_Open_000Here’s an image of Uranus I took Friday, September 4, 2015 at 10:42 pm with the Prompt 1 telescope in Chile. Uranus was 19.2 Astronomical Units from us, at apparent magnitude of 6.02.

The first planet to be discovered in modern times, Uranus has five large moons and 22 known small moons, all named after literary characters from Shakespeare and Pope.
