Uranus - The Other Blue Planet

You can barely see it here. Uranus is the blue dot about one inch from the top left corner of the image. From Cassini, via CICLOPS. Saturn is roughly ten times as far from the sun as the Earth, and Uranus is about twice as far as Saturn. The fact that we even know that it is there should tell you something about how big it is. Cassini took seven years to get to Saturn.
