Uranus a beautiful planet indeed--7th planet from the Sun. It has the third-largest planetary radius and fourth-largest planetary mass in the Solar System. Uranus is similar in composition to Neptune...both are different chemical composition than the larger gas giants Jupiter and Saturn. For this reason, astronomers sometimes place them in a separate category called "ice giants"...

Neptune is the eighth and farthest known planet from the Sun in the Solar System. In the Solar System, it is the fourth-largest planet by diameter, the third-most-massive planet, and the densest giant planet. Wikipedia Radius: 24,622 km Length of day: 0d 16h 6m Orbital period: 165 years Mass: 1.024 × 10^26 kg (17.15 M⊕) Moons: Triton, S/2004 N 1, Laomedeia, Thalassa, Halimede, Nereid, Psamathe, Proteus, Despina, Larissa, Naiad, Sao, Neso,

Microlensing study suggests most common outer planets likely Neptune-mass

A new statistical study of planets found by a technique called gravitational microlensing suggests that Neptune-mass worlds are likely the most common type of planet to form in the icy outer realms of planetary systems.
