NEPTUNE

neptune_voy2 PA080004 PA080005

Neptune is almost the same size as Uranus but more blue in colour.

 

It is 30 times as far from the Sun as the Earth and receives little more than a thousandth of the amount of light and heat that the Earth does. However, heat flows up from the interior of the planet and churns up the atmosphere creating massive storms.
