Only one on this one, too! Voyager 2 from the USA again! It left Earth on August
20, 1977, doing a fly-by, taking images of Neptune, and everything
about it. It reached Neptune in 1989.
Neptune has VERY faint rings. People hardly know they're there!
Neptune also has 8 moons.
Funny fact: Most of Neptune's moons are
numbers! Here are the '#' moons: 1989N1, 1989N2, 1989N3, 1989N4,
1989N5 and 1989N6. STRANGE!
Neptune is a lot like Jupiter in ways. Like Jupiter, Neptune is
'striped' in colors. Also like Jupiter, Neptune has a "Great Dark Spot"
like Jupiter's "Great Red Spot", only the Dark Spot is thought
to be a giant hole in Neptune's atmosphere.
Neptune's clouds are made mainly of methane, just like Uranus.
