How did willamHerchal discovered Uranus:

The planet Uranus was discovered by Willam

Herschel on march 13, 1781. He

discovered Uranus while Surreying stars in

The night sky using a telescope that

Built himself. Herschel noticed that one

of these “stars” seemed different, and

after observing it many more times,

Noticed that it orbited the sun. He

Calculated that Uranus had an orbit

That was about 18 times further from the

Sun than Earth. Herschel also discovered

Two of the moons of Uranus [Titania and Orberon].
