I enjoyed this one. It was entertaining and educational.

Plus, I got to giggle over the name of the planet. ... and remember the joke that involves Klingons in orbit around the planet.

Real mature.

Other than 4 Sorry screens, I enjoyed it as well. I don't know what's going on with my typing.

I asked my dermogoligst how cold the stuff she was using to freeze things off my face. She said as cold as Uranus.
I knew she was lying. I knew 98.6 degrees wouldn't freeze much.

I have to admit, I never heard Uranus spoken of as anything but the planet until I heard them joke in the movie ET. We just didn't think that way in the old days - not where I was anyway.

I questioned one of the solutions and sent in a support ticket. No one has said anything here, so I guess it's not bothering anyone else??

I enjoyed it anyway! It's a fun WP.

Would it help you to know that the Greek word for the planet
is Ouranos, pronounced OOranoss?

I enjoyed the quiz a lot; again, though, non-scientists like me will find this hard (not eka-iodine hard though).

Thanks, Barry!

I'm gonna callt the planet "OOranoss" from now on. It'll be educational and fun.

Saw the theme and just had to tackle this astronomy based w.p.
Ate one last peppermint pattie before eye surgery Monday [can't eat or drink after midnight tonight] and played pretty well.
Astronomy is my favorite hobby. Sure can't wait until my vision clears up and I can go out and admire the wonders of the night sky again.
Be back soon!

Love this series. We will have to petition to get Pluto back on board so you can continue after Neptune. Or...start a bunch about planets from Star Trek?

Loved it. Thanks for telling us so much about Uranus.

Again, a great puzzle that one did not have to be an expert on Uranus to solve. Good job.

My support ticket said the phrase was corrected. I thought they always posted here when they changed something.

I guess not. Anyway - seems to not have bothered anyone else.

Good puzzle.

No pink screens, but I had trouble with the pronunciation.

Last night I happened to read the passage in the Harry Potter book where Ron tells Lavender he'd 'like to have a look at Uranus'...I'd missed that the first time through.

Enjoyed the WP this morning!
