Uranus is one planet that spins on its side, although there is another famous dwarf planet named Pluto that also spins on its side. Uranus was first discovered as a planet on March 12, 1781. Its axis of rotation is in fact tilted sideways and its north and south poles are located where most planets have their equators.
