      An interesting thing about Triton's orbit is that it goes around Neptune in the opposite direction that Neptune's rotates. However, only Uranus and Neptune have such a tilted magnetosphere. It may have been captured by Neptune or moved into the eccentric orbit by Triton's gravity when Triton got captured. As a result, Neptune gives off almost three times as much heat as it receives from the Sun. Neptune is overseen by the Aquaman of the rd century, and is described as being covered in oceans. This is explained by the idea of retrogradation.

      Neptune is a very cold, windy world. There might be more we haven't seen yet. Neptune spins on its axis very rapidly. Just then, a person runs in and states that he has caught the dreaded plague that has been killing off his people. The Gobsmacking Galaxy, an entry in the children's non-fiction series The Knowledge written by Kjartan Poskitthumorously describes hypothetical alien life forms which might evolve on planets in the solar system; the extreme cold of Neptune precludes any actual physical body, so the Neptunian creature is a being of pure electromagnetic energy, gamma rays and photons, while the Triton creature would be the same, except wearing an anorak to cope with the slightly lower temperature.

      The pressure at the center is 7 Mbar or Gpa, twice as high as that at the center of Earth with temperatures of around 5. The polar regions complete a rotation in 12 hours being the most pronounced differential rotation of any planet in the Solar System, resulting in strong latitudinal wind shear. Deeper inside the layers of gas, however, the temperature rises slowly. Neptune is the smallest gas giant. Mass and composition[ change change source ] At

The planet Neptune book

It is the smallest of the gas giants and is the first planet to be discovered by mathematical predictions in Particles of icy methane and minor gases in the extremities of the atmosphere give Neptune its deep blue colour.

This will be the last time for about the next years that Neptune will be at its point of discovery. By studying the cloud formations on the gas giant, scientists were able to calculate that a day on Neptune lasts just under 16 hours.

The Planet Neptune

Very similar to Uranus, its vivid blue color is influenced by the presence of methane and some unknown factor causes the more intense color. On the edge of this ring is the Arago Ring, slightly brighter and less than km or 62 mi wide. It is the seventh largest moon in the solar system.

They are small potato-shaped moons far from Neptune. The striking blue and white features of Neptune also help to distinguish it from Uranus. On September 26,Galle and his assistant Heinrich L. A tiny amount of methane is also detected in the atmosphere.

As such, the planet's magnetic field, which is about 27 times more powerful than Earth's, undergoes wild swings during each rotation. Neptune's magnetic The planet Neptune book are tipped over by roughly 47 degrees compared with the poles along which it spins.

Around the core is rock, water, ammonia and methane. The three main rings are narrow and extend up to An international team of astronomers relying on ground telescopes announced the discovery of five new moons orbiting Neptune in It also has reddish patches like Pluto which is thought to be methane ice that reacted to UV light from the Sun, producing what is known as tholins, an organic compound.

It was called the Great Dark Spot. As a result, Neptune gives off almost three times as much heat as it receives from the Sun. If you weighed pounds on Earth you would weigh The background story of the computer game Supreme Commander makes note of a test of a quantum tunnelling system being used to transport humans to Triton.

It has an equatorial radius of Neptune is made of rock and metal in the core.This book is dedicated to my mom and dad for always pushing me to do my best.
