Neptune, the planet that is the farthest known of the solar system, if you discount Pluto, is located 30.047 times farther away from the Sun than Earth is, at 2,793,100,000 miles, while earth is 93,000,000 miles from the Sun. Only about one thousandth of the Sunlight received by Earth reaches Neptune. Yet, with that small amount of sunlight the atmosphere of Neptune is significantly affected. To sum this up, Neptune only gets about 1/900 the sunlight of earth.
