    Uranus orbits on its side. Earth's axis is tilted 23 degrees, causing our familiar seasons. But a 98-degree tilt means Uranus is on its side. Earth's poles get periods of continuous darkness or light around the solstices. On Uranus the they get 42 years of light alternating with 42 years of darkness, though around the equinoxes there are day and night cycles around the equator. ©Mona Evans, "10 Amazing Facts about the Solar System" http://www.bellaonline.com/articles/art33026.asp

This image, taken by the Hubble Space Telescope in infrared reveals cloud structures not normally visible. Methane gas in the upper atmosphere absorbs red light, giving the planet its blue-green color. Uranus is spinning on its side, probably because of a collision with a large object early in the Solar System's history.
