Uranus from Puck orbit

This is how Uranus and its tiny satellite Puck might look from a position in orbit around Puck. Puck in turn orbits Uranus at a height of 37 thousand miles above Uranus' cloud tops, completing one orbit in about 18 hours. Due to the fact that Puck's orbit is on the same plane as Uranus' rings, they would appear as little more than a thin line from this vantage point.
