NASA's Voyager 2 spacecraft gave humanity its first glimpse of Neptune and its moon Triton in the summer of 1989. The images were taken on Aug. 20, 1989, at a range of 4.4 million miles from the planet, 4 days and 20 hours before closest approach on Aug. 25. NASA

What Planet Are You?

All the planets in one picture.via themetapicture is AWESOME! <--- They included Pluto!

Neptun - 4.688 Million Kilometers away from earth

How far is Neptune from Earth? The distance from one planet to another is constantly shifting because both bodies are moving through space. When Neptune and Earth line up on the same side of the sun, at their closest, they are only billion miles

The color of Neptune is a bright azure blue. During its flyby in 1989, NASA’s Voyager 2 revealed the bright blue color, different from the pale blue color of Uranus. So why does Neptune have this color?  The answer to Neptune’s color comes from its cloud tops. The upper atmosphere of Neptune is made up of 80% hydrogen,19% helium with a trace 1% amount of methane and other ices, like ammonia and water. Methane absorbs light at 600 nm, which is the red end of the spectrum of visible light.

Uranus a beautiful planet indeed--7th planet from the Sun. It has the third-largest planetary radius and fourth-largest planetary mass in the Solar System. Uranus is similar in composition to Neptune...both are different chemical composition than the larger gas giants Jupiter and Saturn. For this reason, astronomers sometimes place them in a separate category called "ice giants"...

Pluto is the fourth dwarf planet from the sun, the tenth planetary body from the Sun, and the second largest dwarf planet orbiting the Sun. Also, one of the planets scorpio is ruled by ;

It's okay, Pluto's astronomical symbol doesn't look very good anyway. Also, Uranus's symbol in this picture is the astrological version. Other than that everything's good.
