Neptune – the sea planet

Do you want to learn facts about Neptune? Well… here’s some interesting facts that you might not know. Neptune has a sea blue color due to the methane in its atmosphere which absorbs other colors except from blue. Aside from methane its atmosphere is also composed of hydrogen and helium. Neptune was discovered by a german astronomer in 1846. Its mantle is made of ammonia, water and methane ice. it has a rocky core.

Planet Neptune is called the storm world because the storms in its surface is hyperactive. Winds rage around Neptune at a speed of 1240 mph, which is the fastest wind in the solar system. Neptune has 8 moons but 7 moons are still unnamed. The only named moon is Triton. Which is the largest moon of all and the only moon that orbits Neptune opposite in which the planet spins.

here’s a video of  voyager 2 passing by neptune, showing its moons and features:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PdBOZWB3iAI

 in my opinion, Neptune is a dark, stormy planet, and, if you are living on Neptune,

you will be so old. If you look at Triton on Neptune, it will be zooming fast across the sky. 

Have you ever wondered if there is any life beyond earth? Comment to let me know.

    Hi Kevin, you gave alot of infomation about Nebtune. I found it interesting that the winds around the planet are at the speed of 1240 mph. I would like to know who your audience is becuase there are alot of difficult concepts and young readers will have a hard time understanding it. The two rotating planets are interesting but there is no lable so I am confused about what they represent. To answer your question yes I do wonder if there is life outside Earth, and sometimes it scares me to think about it. Maybe the life form is kind so we can be friends and that would be great!

    HI Kevin! You bombarded with me a lot of information about Neptune. It’s a good thing that you also included videos and .gif images (it looks very interesting). However, be mindful of your capitalization and punctuations. Good work!

    Hi Kevin, to be honest, you know much more than me on Neptune, and I learned a lot interesting information through your article. The picture and web link help to understand more about your topic. You are doing better than I was in your age, i mean you know how to search and collect information from internet and arrange them into an article. Next time I hope to read something from your analysis or judgement too, not only listed facts.

    Since the universe is so huge, I believe that there must be life existed outside of earth, maybe even more advanced species.
