The planet Uranus
some of the many moons of Uranus
As sunlight reaches some areas for the first time in years, it heats up the atmosphere

This triggers gigantic springtime storms roughly the size of North America.

when Voyager 2 first imaged Uranus in 1986 at the height of summer in its south, it only saw a bland-looking sphere this led to it often getting dubbed "the most boring planet

decades later, when advanced telescopes such as Hubble came into play and the seasons changed, to see extreme weather on Uranus.
Average Distance from Sun:
19.2 AU
Perihelion(shortest distance):
18.4 AU
Aphelion (longest distance):
20.1 AU
Cool Fact
Uranus has only been visited once :D

Only one spacecraft in the history of spaceflight has ever made a close approach to Uranus. NASA’s Voyager 2 zipped pass Uranus in January, 1986, coming within 0.00054145155693632 AU (81,000 km) of the surface of Uranus. It took thousands of photographs of Uranus and its moons, and then sped off onto towards its next target
