Interesting History of UranusDefinition of Uranus: "Astronomy - the planet seventh in order from the sun, having an equatorial diameter of 32,600 miles (56,460 kilometers), a mean distance from the sun of 1,784 million miles (2,871 million kilometers), a period of revolution of 84.07 years, and 15 moons."https: //www.dictionary.com/browse/uranusWilliam Herschel; On Nebulous Stars, Properly So Called; Royal Society of London; 1791William Herschel writes: "But what a field of novelty is here opened to our conceptions A shining fluid, of a brightness sufficient to reach us from the remote regions of a star of the 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th magnitude, and of an extent so considerable as to take up 3, 4, 5, or 6, minutes in diameter Can we compare it to the coruscations of the electrical fluid in the aurora borealis? Or to the more magnificent cone of the zodiacal light as we see it in spring or autumn? The latter, notwithstanding I have observed it to reach at least 90 degrees from the sun, is yet of so little extent and brightness as probably not to be perceived even by the inhabitants of Saturn or the Georgian planet Uranus], and must be utterly invisible at the remoteness of the nearest fixed star."
