The Other Blue Planet
What’s the meaning of Neptune? The ancient Roman god of the sea,as known as the Greek god poseidon.That other blue planet was discovered on September 23,1846.
The reason for Neptunes blue color is absorption of red light while it reflects green light.
- Neptune has a great big dark spot on it's left side
That big dark spot was a huge storm in the southern atmosphere of Neptune which was about the size of the entire Earth.
It’s orbit around the sun takes one year in Neptune but on Earth it would take 165 years.
- It’s first orbit has been complete since it’s discovery in 1846 and now on it’s 2nd orbit it’s 3rd year has been completed.
Every once in a while Neptune and Pluto can sometimes be seen to change places because of Pluto’s unique orbit
