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.
