Uranus: the planet shines faintly, is greatly tilted on its axis, and has icy rings. Scientists say that this planet is so consistent in its color that it doesn't look real.

Saturn - second largest planet; 62 moons; orbit = 29.5 Earth years; rotation = 10h, 32m, 35s; the rings are only 20 meters in thickness

Ganymede A satellite of Jupiter and the largest moon in the Solar System. It is the seventh moon and third Galilean satellite outward from Jupiter. Completing an orbit in roughly seven days, Ganymede participates in a 1:2:4 orbital resonance with the moons Europa and Io, respectively.

Ganymede. One of Jupiter's Moons. Largest satellite in the solar system with a diameter of 3270 mi. It is larger than Mercury & Pluto, & 3/4 the size of Mars. If Ganeymede orbited the Sun instead of Jupiter, it would be classified as a planet.

A nebula is an interstellar cloud of dust, hydrogen, helium and other ionized gases. Originally, nebula was a name for any diffuse astronomical object, including galaxies beyond the Milky Way. The Andromeda Galaxy, for instance, was referred to as the Andromeda Nebula before the true nature of galaxies was confirmed in the early 20th century by Vesto Slipher, Edwin Hubble, et al. Nebulae are often star-forming regions, such as in the Eagle Nebula.
