Why are Neptune and Uranus sister planets?
The reason they are considered to be sister, or twin planets, is because they are almost identical in size, and because they both appear to be blue. Their chemical makeup is almost identical as well.

Uranus is the 7th planet from our Sun.\n. \nIt's orbit lies between the orbits of Saturn and Neptune..
Because almost nobody outside Great Britain liked Herschel'sproposed name, Georgium Sidus (George's Star). Since Saturn is the next planet out from Jupiter and in Romanmythology Saturn is the father of Jupiter, it seemed fitting toname the next planet out after Saturn's father, who was... um ...a…ctually, Caelus ; Ouranos is the Greek name for him, so Uranus is the only planet that takes its name fromGreek rather than Latin.

The planet after Uranus is Neptune so the order of the planets go... Mercury Venus Earth Mars Jupiter Saturn Uranus Neptune & Pluto
i want the anwser Comment: Unfortunately there isn't an exact answer. These planets orbit the Sun at different speeds and the distance between them is always changing.
Uranus is a little bit bigger if you measure it with Neptune, buteven though Uranus is bigger- Neptune is actually heavier if youmeasure their weight. Which means even if Uranus is bigger, Neptune is heavier.
Uranus was discovered by Sir William Herschel in 1781. Neptune was discovered by John Couch Adams in 1846. Pluto was discovered by astronomer Clyde Tombaugh in 1930.
To some extent the question is meaningless because you would have to define where in the orbits the planets are to work out the instantaneous distance between them (Saturn could be on one side of the Sun and Uranus on the other) It would be more meaningful to ask the distance between the orbits o…f the orbital paths of the planets not the planets themselves.

Jupiter and Saturn are visible to the naked eye and have thus been know since ancient times (thus nobody knows who first discovered them). Although Uranus is visible to the naked eye, it was never recognized as a planet by ancient observers because of its dimness and slow orbit. Sir William Hersch…el announced its discovery on March 13, 1781. Neptune was the first planet found by mathematical prediction rather than by observation. Unexpected changes in the orbit of Uranus led Alexis Bouvard to deduce that its orbit was subject to gravitational perturbation by an unknown planet. Neptune was subsequently observed on September 23, 1846 by Johann Galle within a degree of the position predicted by Urbain Le Verrier. ( Full Answer )
Uranus is the seventh planet from the Sun and is the third largest in the solar system. It was discovered by William Herschel in 1781. It has an equatorial diameter of 51,800 kilometers (32,190 miles) and orbits the Sun once every 84.01 Earth years. It has a mean distance from the Sun of 2.87 bill…ion kilometers (1.78 billion miles). It rotates about its axis once every 17 hours 14 minutes. Uranus has at least 22 moons. The two largest moons, TITANIA and OBERON , were discovered by William Herschel in 1787. ( Full Answer )
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.

Uranus was discovered by Sir William Herschel on March 13th 1781, while looking at the sky with his telescope, at first he though it was a comet, but later observations showed it was a planet. With precise measurements, it was discovered that Uranus had weak disturbances in its orbit, and so it w…as mathematically predicted that another planet is beyond it - and so Neptune was discovered where the calculations said so.

Because Uranus's internal heat is lower than Neptune's -- possibly because it doesn't have a moon as large as Triton providing friction from gravitational drag -- Uranus is actually colder than Neptune , despite being almost a billion miles closer to the sun.
the Casssini-Huygens was sent to Saturn, the Voyager 2 was sent to Uranus, and the Voyager 2 was also sent to Neptune. The Galileo was sent to Jupiter.

it it literally because of the colours of the planets the greeny gass in the atmosphere of the frozen planet uranus and the pure iceball that is neptune
they are planets, in the solar system, cold, far from the sun, unexplored by humans other than by telescope
Jupiter and Saturn are called Gas Giants, although Liquid giant is a better term, seeing as only the outer layer is gas, and Neptune and Uranus are called Ice-Giants, but do fit in the gas giant category.
Uranus and Neptune are in a class of planets known as ice giants.The outermost layer is a thick atmosphere of hydrogen, helium, andmethane. Below that is a mantle of water, ammonia, and methane iceskept solid under pressure despite high temperatures. Finally thereis a core made of silicate rock and …iron. ( Full Answer )
Uranus Lowest Temperature is -224 Cold HUH! The average surface temperature (degrees Celsius) : Uranus about -214 Neptune about -220
No. You see, there is no O2, H20, or an atmosphere that could sustain life. Not to mention that it is way too cold as well.
Uranus and Neptune are sometimes called the twin ice giants: they are of similar size, composition, and relative distance from the sun. By comparison, Earth and Venus are also often referred to as twins, for many of the same reasons. But like Earth and Venus, Uranus and Neptune do have substan…tial differences: early in its history, Uranus was struck by something large and tilted onto its side, while Neptune has the fasted winds ever recorded in the solar system and the giant captured moon Triton, which orbits the planet in retrograde (backwards). ( Full Answer )
Neptune. It depends on what is being compared: core of planets OR atmosphere of planets.
The reason they call it that is because they're bascially gigantic balls compared to our earth and the ther 3 rocky inner planets and they also have outer layer of gases making them all gaseous planets.
Well, Uranus doesn't "surround" Neptune - they are many, many millions of miles apart. The only things that surround Neptune are it's satellites. In the area beyond the planet Neptune are many "trans-Neptunian objects", ice planetoids, mostly. Among these is Pluto, considered a planet for so many ye…ars, but now classed as a "dwarf planet" or "trans-Neptunian object". ( Full Answer )
Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune are considered as outer planets because they lie between the asteroid belt and the throughout space.
Because they are cold, have lots of clouds, fog, and water which makes it look blue.
Well Uranus is -227F Neptune is -218F But Uranus is 387,238,899,235 kilometers away from the sun and Neptune is 412,172,645,428 kilometers from the sun
No. Sailor Neptune is only responsible for the guardianship of her own planet, along with the duties given to her by Queen Serenity. For Neptune and Uranus, their duty was to keep watch on the outer rim of the Solar System, to prevent incursions from outsiders. This is in contrast to the duties of… the Inner Senshi, whose duty it was to guard Princess Serenity. ( Full Answer )

Because since they are so far away from the sun, the gases on their surfaces are frozen solid. They are definitely gas giants, but are also made of ice. Some people may even call them ice giants
Venus. Each of the four gas giants; Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune has a ring system. Saturn's ring system is by far the most spectacular, and known as 'THE' ringed planet. None of the four inner or terrestrial planets has a ring system; Mercury, Venus, earth or Mars.
because pluto is a dwarf planet uranus is a lazy and neptune is too cool
This is a question that arose from another question I asked earlier today, but why is Neptune more dense than Uranus despite being close to the same size, but further from the sun? As I understand it, heavier elements should have been concentrated closer to the sun during the formation of the planet…s. The only theory I have heard is that Neptune somehow formed closer to the sun than Uranus, and drifted to a further orbit, but I received no explanation as to how that would happen. Another theory I heard is that it formed from a larger amount of less dense material, and that mass compressed it, but as I understand it, larger volumes of less dense materials make for larger, thus less dense planets. For example, Jupiter despite it's huge mass is still less dense than any of the inner four planets. . hop this is what you needed... :). ( Full Answer )
yes because they are nearly the same size and same colour so they are twin planets
Neptune is farther away from the Earth than Uranus Order of Planets: Mercury, Venus, earth, mars, jupiter, saturn, uranus, neptune
No. Uranus does not have planets; it is a planet. It does, however,have a number of moons.
Because they are the furthest planets away from the sun, so they receive less sunlight for warmth.
Uranus is a planet because it orbits the sun, not Neptune and thetwo planets are quite far apart even at their closest approach.Uranus is nearly the same mass as Neptune, so even if they wereclose enough to form a planet-moon system, the result would be abinary planet.
They are called ringed planets because they are ringed planets. They have rings round them. The ones round Saturn were first noticed by Galileo and can be seen in a small telescope, while the others' rings were only discovered from photos taken from close range by spacecraft.
Pluto is not called a planet now, but yes the others are the "outer planets". They are simply in the outer part of the solar system compared with the "inner planets". Also, the Main Asteroid Belt separates the outer planets from the inner planets.
No, Mercury, Venus, Earth and Mars are the closest to the Sun. The four gas giants are all farther from the sun than those four inner planets.
Earth (where we live) is the only place known to have life.Evidence that Mars once had liquid water leads some to think Marsmay have once supported life, but it is unlikely now. Of the remaining ones, Venus is far too hot and the others namedare gas giants, which could not support life. Pluto is sim…ply toocold. However Europa, a moon of Jupiter and Enceladus, a moon of Saturnare being looked at. Both are icy moons with evidence of liquidwater beneath the surface. There is some speculation that theseoceans could support some form of life. ( Full Answer )
Diameter of Uranus is 31,518 miles (50,724 km) while diameter ofNeptune is 30,599 miles (49,244 km). So i think Uranus is bigger.
It's because they are the furthest distance from the Sun. The otherfour are called the inner planets because they are the closest.
The Earth is not a Jovian planet. The 4 outer planets, also knownas gas giants, are called Jovian planets and they are Jupiter,Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. By the way, Jovian is the adjectiveform of the name Jupiter.
