Uranus, the farthest planet from the sun that can be seen without the need of a telescope is tilted on its side. It is giant ball of liquid and gas. The diameter of the equator of Uranus is about 4 times bigger than that of Earth. Uranus revolves around the Earth in an elliptical orbit which can take about 84 years.

Uranus is tilted to such an extent that its axis lies at almost the same level with the trajectory around the sun. The tilt of the planet is measured relative to a line at 90 degrees to the orbital plane, which is an imaginary surface in contact with all the points of the orbit. If the tile of the Earth's axis is 231/2 degrees, the tilt of the axis of Uranus is at 98 degrees. The equator of Uranus is tilted generally at right angles to the sun, which gives unusual seasons to the planet.

Uranus does not, and never has revolved around the Earth. It revolved around the sun. The Earth's axis is tilted, not tiled.
