Why is Uranus on its Side? Facts about Uranus’ Peculiar Axial Tilt


Facts about what Makes Uranus’ axial tilt so unusual. This was a university project I completed that I thought I would share with you. Uranus has a very unusual axial tilt and I thought it would be a good topic for a short five minute documentary. Michael Brightmore from the Cleethorpes Astronomical Society helped explain why.

If you liked this video please let me know, I will be doing a proper Uranus video as part of the ‘Our Solar System’s Planets’ too in the not too distant future!
