Neptune and Uranus

We’re going to compare and contrast Neptune and Uranus.

They are giant planets, but they are each much larger than Earth. They are similar to each other in their sizes.

It’s believed that the center core of these planets is rock and that above that is a layer of water. Above those oceans it is believed that there is a layer of liquid metal. These planets both have similar gases in their atmospheres as well.

 One main difference between these planets is how they rotate. Uranus spins on its side, while every other planet rotates counter clockwise.
