    Definitely, mine is much more pink and brown in the middle; but I try not to look at it.  Actually, Tom, I never want to see uranus.

    It seems so to me. The blue color is usually associated with a clear oxygen-rich atmoshpere, which Uranus does not possess, as far as I know. To me it looks like a view of Uranus from a far distance, a view possible due to the brightness of the sun reflection, and the far distance causes the color distortion.

    hmmm, how to answer this. lol. i'll be good though. i doubt it is the real color as colors in space are distorted due to solar radiation but like wesman tod said, i never want to see yours. i had to.

    First of all, Tom, I am not sure how you managed to even get this question posted!  I have had difficulties with two of my hubs the past two weeks regarding content, believe it or not, and here you are posting a question about Uranus and I'm not sure just what the question really is, but well, I'm not an astronomer, but I would just guess that the color of Uranus is probably more shades of pink than this photograph depicts.  And I always warn people that when it reaches the point that all you see in a photograph is Uranus, then you have some huge attitude adjustments to make, but again I am not an astronomer.  I know if you adjust the attitude, you will be able to see more than just Uranus.  I mean there is a lot out there in the universe to see other than Uranus.  So that is the best answer I could come up with.  Hope it helps, Tom,
