What is the distance between the planets Uranus and Neptune?
The distance between Uranus and Neptune varies based on their positions relative to each other. At their closest position, they are about 1,600 million kilometers apart. At their furthest position, they are about 7,400 million kilometers apart. These numbers are based on mean distances from the Sun of 2870 for Uranus and 4497 for Neptune.

Asked in Dwarf Planet Pluto
Which planet lies between Pluto and Uranus?
Neptune is the planet that typically lies between Pluto and Uranus. However, during some parts of it's orbit, Pluto will be closer to the sun than Neptune is (i.e. Neptune is no longer between Uranus and Pluto; instead, Pluto is between Uranus and Neptune). In fact, as of February 11th, 1999, Pluto passed Neptune, thereby making Neptune the furthest planet from the Sun. Neptune will continue to be the further than Pluto until April 5th, 2231.
