Planet Neptune

Parent Category: The Solar System
Neptune, the 8th planet from the Sun and nearly a twin of planet Uranus, is the fourth-largest planet by diameter and the furthest planet discovered so far in our solar system. Planet Neptune gets its name after the Roman god of the sea. It is a gas giant.
well it is a trick question because some people say it has 2-3 3-4 4-5 5-6 6-7 7-8 8-9 9-0 and so on or so fourth but the real answer since i have seen this through a telescope when i was looking has 5-6 ring people might say different but that is there opinion but also it changes every...
There is no starting point. We don't know where Pluto started  orbiting so we cannot determine the answer to this question.  However, we do know that it takes Pluto 248 years to orbit the sun.
Neptune's and Earth's orbits place them at different distances at different times. The approximate minimum distance between the two is about 4.3 billion kilometers, and the approximate maximum distance between the two is about 4.7 billion kilometers.
Triton, proteus, Nereid, Larissa, and Galatea, according to  diameter
Mankind has not yet gone to Neptune nor a satellite. There are only  satellites around the Earth, Moon, Venus, Mars, We have sent an  unmanned probe to Neptune (Voyager 2), but it did not go into  orbit. It just flew by and took some pictures.It would have taken  far too much energy to slow the...
the planet that is being commited is the 10th Planet "Vulcan"
It orbits the Sun all the time! You probably meant : "What time does Neptune take to complete one orbit around the Sun?"The answer to that is: about 165 Earth years.
Earth is small compared to Neptune
Neptune takes 164.79 years to make one traversal around the Sun.  The average distance from the Sun to Neptune is about 30.1 AU.
Neptune is actually in the constellation Aquaruis.
other dwarf planets, comets, kuiper belt objects
because they are so far away from the sun. because Jupiter is a gas planet and Neptune is the last planet in the solar system.
because the material in them is so tiny
Neptune was named after the Roman God of Sea.
The current Dark Spot on Neptune is located in the Northern Hemisphere of Neptune. The Great Dark Spot and the Small Dark Spot have disappeared. Dark Spots on Neptune are constantly disappearing and forming. Former Dark Spots can still exist as cyclones and look like a cloud but will have lost its...
About 64.4 lbs. Mar's gravity is about 12.2 ft/s^2 (or 3.71 m/s^2) and earth's gravity is about 32.2 ft / s^2 (or 9.83 m / s^2). Using this ratio you can calculate your weight. Weight on mars = (12.2 / 32.2) * Weight on Earth
No, they did not assist each other, rather, they each discovered it  separately around the same time.
Here are the rings and their names including the arcs: Ring Name: 1989 N3R Galle Distance*: 41,900 km Width: 15 km Ring Name: 1989 N2R Leverrier Distance*: 53,200 km Width: 15 km Ring Name: Lassell Distance*: 55,400 km Ring Name: Arago Distance*: 57,600 Ring Name: 1989 N1R Adams Distance*: 57,600...
  == the diameter from the sun is 45.8 ==
There is no land of Neptune
The mean atmospheric temperature on Neptune is as low as −218 °C (55.1 K) at the cloud tops and about -200 °C (72 K) at the pressure level equal to 1 Earth atmosphere.The lowest observed temperature within the atmosphere is about -221°C (51.8 K).    Probably something like -210 degrees...
They would freeze to death.
The Great Dark Spot, hurricanes, and swirling clouds.
No. Voyager 2 visited Neptune in 1989. Neptune was discovered in  1846 but its existence was inferred earlier based on how its  gravity slightly perturbed the orbit of Uranus.
No , voyager 2 was an unmanned probe.
No, no person has even been to Neptune
Neptune is not the furthest away from the sun it is Pluto [dwarf planet]Neptune is the 2nd furthest from the sun
how much brains do you have??Neptune has 8 moons by the way
That's because Pluto is usually further from the Sun than Neptune is. Incidentally, Pluto is defined as only a dwarf planet now.
well none of them take 165 years. but the closest would be Neptune that takes 164.79 Earth years to orbit the sun.
Neptune is the eighth planet from the Sun and the fourth largest (by diameter).Neptune's orbit: 4,504,000,000 km (30.06 AU) from Sun. That's the averagedistance from the Sun (not "diameter" from the Sun). Neptune's diameter: 49,532 km (equatorial) Neptune's mass: 1.0247 X 10 ^26 kg (larger in mass...
Neptune has a total of 13 known satelites, or moons. In astronomy the word satellite means a celestial body orbiting a planet. Earth has 1 satellite
no.its the only planet you cant see with your naked eye from earth.
Neptune is known for intense storms and the most erratic climate in  the Solar System. It is extremely dark and very cold, with average  temperatures of negative 353 degrees Fahrenheit and negative 214  degrees Celsius.
Your question is not as hypothetical as you may think. Sunlight DOES travel at the speed of 300,000 km per second. At that speed, once the light leaves the surface of the sun, it takes about 4 hours 20 minutes for it to reach Neptune.
Neptune takes about 165 Earth years to orbit the Sun. That's one Neptune "year" of course. Neptune's "day" is about 16 hours and 6 minutes ( 16.1 hours). That's the time it takes to spin on its axis once. From that you can work out how many Neptune days the orbit takes, if you want. I make it to...
Planet Neptune has a surface area of 2.941 billion sq miles (7.618 billion km²).
Neptune, like the other gas giants, has no definitive surface.  Instead it is comprised of gaseous ice and water layers. In fact,  the planets mantle is a water-ammonia ocean, which at deep levels,  the methane transforms into diamond crystals. The atmosphere is icy  and comprised mostly of...
The surface area of Neptune is 7.64 x 109 km2, but it is not solid.
No so far people can only live on earth right now.
Neptune's biggest moon Triton was discovered by William Lassell
yes because study says that neptune realeses 2.7 of the suns energy it absorbs
The planet Neptune has a surface area of 2.941 billion square  miles. For a comparison, the surface area of Earth is 196.9 million  square miles.
No it is to far away to the sun so it was to cold.
  == Answer ==   It is my understanding that dark red spotting at any point in any pregnancy should be taken seriously. Contact your physician immediately.
If I remember correctly, they shoot as high as 5 miles.
I don't know! Go ask somebody else!
It is relatively constant at 72K
The methane gas makes it blue.
Neptune has a lot more days than the Earth. The Earth has 365 days when Neptune has 60,225 days in a year. The days are 16 hours, 6 minutes and 36 seconds.
pue no se mi me importa
The methane gas makes it blue, but other gases that swarm the atmosphere make it purple.
thirty astronimical units
Yes, a pressurized and heated spacesuit or spacecraft would be required in the cold regions of the outer solar system. You could not actually walk on Neptune because the solid surface is deep under a superheated slush of water and ammonia. But you could walk on any of its icy moons.
165 Earth years.
Neptune's orbital velocity is 5.43 km/sec (nearly 20,000 kph or 12,000 mph).  Estimate by Computation  To estimate the distance Neptune travels in one orbit around the Sun : 2πr where the average radius is 4.5 x 109 km and the corresponding circumference 28.3 x 109 km. Given the computed...
Scientists think that Neptune (the 8th planet from the sun) is slowly shrinking, causing its interior to heat up. As this energy rises toward Neptune's surface, it produces clouds and storms in the planet's atmosphere.
A satellite is in orbit of a planet, going round and round indefinitely, We put objects into orbit around our planet, and the moon is our only natural satellite. We have never sent any object to another planet with the object of sending it round and round the planet. What NASA HAS done, is to send...
Nobody knows exactly. Normally, planetary rings are made up of rocks caused by impacts between planets, moons and asteroids. However, Neptune is not a solid planet, so there is nothing for other space objects to impact on. Also, Neptune's rings are very faint and incredibly difficult to see. ...
yes but not all comets stars and other stuffises
gas giants have so much gas that they came up with the name,gas giants
Triton probably initially formed as a dwarf planet much like Pluto  and was later captured by Neptune's gravity. It formed by accretion  as chunks of rock, attracted to each other by gravity, came  together to form a planetoid. The rocky components of this new  world sank to the center as they...
The distance that a planet is from the Sun differs depending on theplanet. However, for this question, I will use Earth. Earth isclosest to the Sun when the Northern Hemisphere is in it's wintermonths. This is about December 21st. During Summer, The month ofJune, Earth is Furthest from the Sun. The...
yup.., definitely.., but the type of Voyager 2 is a flyby only.., it didn't land on the Neptune because Neptune is a gas giant.... :) ~icy
The land on the planet Neptune is water.No. It isn't. There is no land on Neptune, all of hydrogen, helium, methane, and some hydrocarbons. No rock, no land. No surface, but gases. It is a gas giant.
no. the third largest plaet is uranus.=:-P
No. Neptune is a gas planet and so does not have a solid surface.
September 23, 1846. It was discovered by mathematical prediction by Johann Galle, meaning that's it's whereabouts was predicted through gravitational effects of other planets.
you cant do anything ,its a gas planet!     ONE OR MORE things can you do! 1. Be poisoned 2.Wait to the air tank being empty   3.Die!
September 23, 1846 by Johann Gottfried Galle. Neptune was discovered on September 23, 1846 , by by Johann Galle and Heinrich d'Arrest at the Berlin Observatory, using a predicted position by Urbain LeVerrier.
It's a roman god, and its the god of the sea. NEPTUNE! Hope I helped with your project/fact/whatever-you-are-doing!
i want the anwserComment: Unfortunately there isn't an exact answer. These planets orbit the Sun at different speeds and the distance between them is always changing.
    == Answer ==     yes     yes it has more than 1   but I really dont know the names
It varies, because both Jupiter and Neptune are orbiting the Sun at different rates. When they are closest together, the distance between them is about 3.7 billion km.When they are on opposite sides of the Sun, the distance is about 5.3 billion km.
Neptunes core is solid and is made of sillicates, iron and nickel.
