Description

You’ve reached Neptune, the last planet of our solar system! This blue planet is the furthest one from the Sun, and like Uranus it’s extremely cold, while Uranus will reach the coldest temperature, Neptune is colder on average!

Neptune is the smallest gas giant and one year on Neptune is 165 Earth years. The Voyager 2 became the first exploration spacecraft to observe Neptune in 1989. Voyager 2 has entered interstellar space and is still transmitting information.
