It's a Blue Hole.....due the Methane. Yes, it's a gassy planet. Nepture can see everything when the pants line up.uranus is not a planet its a black hole.
Hersh was a small guy. His sister was very smart as well.
After William's death in 1822, Caroline returned to Hanover and re-organised his catalogues into one extensive book, for which she was awarded a Gold Medal by the Royal Astronomical Society, who later elected her a member in 1828. An asteroid was named Lucretia in 1889 in honour of her second name. This was a fitting tribute to someone who had contributed so much yet disliked the praise directed towards her when it detracted from her brother.
Astronomer William Herschel discovered the planet Uranus.
Sir William Herschel found the seventh planet on March 13, 1781, while scouring the night sky for comets; he initially thought he'd discovered another icy body. When it came time to propose a moniker, he suggested naming it for his patron, King George III, which would have made it Georgium Sidus, or George's Star. But the name was not widely appreciated outside of England. "Herschel," after its discoverer, was also suggested, as was "Neptune."
Ultimately, German astronomer Johann Elert Bode (whose observations helped to establish the new object as a planet) named Uranus after an ancient Greek god of the sky. Bode argued that as Saturn was the father of Jupiter, the new planet should be named for the father of Saturn. (Uranus is also the only planet to be named after a Greek god rather than a Roman one.) Bode's colleague, Martin Klaproth, supported his choice and named his newly discovered element "uranium."
