Seventh planet has a blue ring

So does my toilet.

Astronomers have discovered that the planet Uranus has a blue ring - only the second found in the Solar System.

Uranus has a blue ring. There's something I never thought I'd say. Not only did I just bring you news, but I made fun of your ass at the same time. ZING!

Like the blue ring of Saturn, it probably owes its existence to an accompanying small moon.

That's no moon, that's a space station. Sorry.

Scientists suspect subtle forces acting on dust in the rings allow smaller particles to persist while larger ones are recaptured by the moon.

Is the blue ring around Uranus going to attack us? No? Okay...moving on.
