  1. Like Saturn, Uranus has rings. Uranus's rings, which are comprised of space dust and large ice boulders, are barely visible to us and require special instruments to detect them. The spacecraft Voyager sent back images of Uranus's rings, allowing scientists to learn more about them. The Hubble Space Telescope offered interesting information about the layers of the planet's atmosphere, revealing several colors that delineate different layers and a red border that indicates a thin mist surrounds the planet.
