The Discovery of Uranus (Astronomy)

Six planets were known to the ancients: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, and Saturn. It wasn’t until 1781, during the Age of Enlightenment, that Uranus was discovered.

We highly recommend the Astronomy textbook “Universe” by Roger Freedman et al:
Universe 9th Edition
Universe 10th Edition
