The seventh planet from the sun and the third largest in the solar system after Jupiter and Saturn, Uranus appears to be on its side, as its rings encircle the planet vertically, not horizontally. One of its five moons Miranda, also designated Uranus V, is the smallest and innermost of Uranus's round satellites. It was discovered by Gerard Kuiper on 16 February 1948 at McDonald Observatory in Texas, and named after Miranda from William Shakespeare's play The Tempest. Like the other large moons of Uranus, Miranda orbits close to its planet's equatorial plane. It boasts Verona Rupes, a 20-kilometer-high scarp, which is the tallest cliff in our solar system. Because Uranus orbits the Sun on its side, Miranda's orbit is perpendicular to the ecliptic and shares Uranus' extreme seasonal cycle.Celebrating the vintage art and designs of space travel from the early and mid-20th century, Anderson Design Group poster artists created this original illustration and vintage poster art of what we think a trip to this unique planet might be like.
