1) there is no Sumerian word for Uranus and they were unaware of its existence
2) Uranus is blue

Come now, lets play fair shall we, Uranus is Blue-Green.
And thats from a NASA site, a little more reliable than the link you sent.
Sitchin might be slightly hard to digest at times but you must understand that he published his book in 1976 and the images from Voyager only LAUNCHED in 1977 came to us in 1986.... the book was first, and only later did Voyager confirm what he had already thought.
www.ufodigest.com... - Accept its from Pravda originally but its not making any far out claims - its simply a review of the situation.
Please dont jump to the conclusion that I am in some way a Sitchin fan, this is simply about the sumerians and what they knew regarding the solar system.
This view of Uranus was recorded by Voyager 2 on January 25, l986, as the spacecraft left the planet behind and set forth on its cruise to Neptune. Voyager was 1 million kilometers (620,000 miles) from Uranus when it acquired this wide-angle view. The picture has a resolution of 140 kilometers (90 miles). The thin crescent of Uranus is seen at an angle of 153 degrees between the spacecraft, the planet and the Sun. Even at this extreme angle, Uranus retains the pale blue-green color seen by ground-based astronomers and recorded by Voyager during its historic encounter.
The Sumerians were among the first astronomers, mapping the stars into sets of constellations, many of which constellations survived in the zodiac and in the constellations known to the ancient Greeks. The five planets that are visible to the naked eye also have Sumerian names.
Mul.Apin is essentially a series of structured lists grouped into 18 sections. (12) data relating to the five planets (i.e., the planetary periods);A statement that the Sun, Moon, and five planets were considered to move on the same path also appears.
