Uranus, like Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune, is a gas giant planet, made almost entirely of hydrogen and helium. Its diameter is four times the Earth’s. It probably has a small rocky core at the center of the planet, surrounded by a thick icy mantle of frozen water, methane and ammonia. Above this is an atmosphere of hydrogen and helium.

Uranus has a series of narrow rings only a few kilometers wide and not visible from Earth.
