Neptune is the eighth planet from the Sun and the most distant solar system. It is part of the so-called outer planets or gas giants, and is the first that was discovered through mathematicalpredictions. His name was put on after the Roman god of the sea, Neptune, and is the fourth planet in diameter and the third largest by mass. Its mass is 17 times that of Earth and slightly more massive thanthe planet "twin" Uranus, which has 15 Earth masses and not as denso.12 On average, Neptune orbits the Sun at a distance of 30.1 AU. Its astronomical symbol is ♆, a stylized version of the trident ofNeptune.
After the discovery of Uranus, it was observed that the orbits of Uranus, Saturn and Jupiter did not behave as predicted by the laws of Kepler and Newton. Adams and Le Verrier independentlycalculated the location of a hypothetical planet, Neptune, which was finally found by Galle, on September 23, 1846, less than one degree of the position calculated by Le Verrier. He later said thatGalileo had observed Neptune in 1611, but he had mistaken for a star.
Neptune is a dynamic planet, with spots that resemble the storms of Jupiter. The largest, the Great Dark Spot, had a similar sizeto Earth, but disappeared in 1994 and has formed another. The strongest winds of any planet in the solar system are in Neptune.
