The NASA Space Agency declares that Uranus has never looked this good since they began tracking it years ago.

The image of Uranus shows the planet’s unique axis. Unlike Earth, which spins on an axis of 23.4 degrees, Uranus rotates at an angle of almost 90 degrees, NASA says. This extreme tilt makes Uranus the only planet to rotate almost completely on its side. As a result, the planet’s poles are located on its sides, giving it the appearance of a ball rolling around the sun.
