Named for the king of the fairies in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, Oberon is the masculine mirror to its fellow moon Titania, with all of its features being named for male characters from Shakespeare's works.
Consisting of roughly equal parts ice and rock, Oberon poses many of the same challenges as the other moons of Uranus: freezing temperatures, an over-abundance of ice, and low gravity making life difficult for the settlers. But no frontier is without its difficulties, and already people are signing up to follow you to Oberon.
Oberon is the second largest moon of Uranus and it's also the farthest of five largest Uranus' moons.
Oberon was discovered by William Herschel in 1787, Oberon is named after the mythical king of the fairies who appears as a character in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.
