Neptune's Size compared to earth

How long it takes Neptune to orbit the sun
Neptune revolves or orbits around the sun once every 164.79 Earth years, or every 60,190 Earth days. Neptune travles at an average speed of 12,253 miles per hour or 19,720 kilometers per hour in its orbit around the sun.
The atmosphere of neptune is similar to all the large plantes in the solar system ; it mostly consists of hydrogen and helium with trace amounts of methena water ammonia and other ices. But unlike the other gas planets in the solar system, Neptune's atmosphere has a larger proportion of the ices."
Neptune is one of the coldest planet in the solar system maintaining a fairly consistent average of -200 degrees celsius. Towards the planets equator, temperatures can get as cold as -218 degrees celsius, while temperature at the south pole is about 10 degrees celsiuse warmer.

The reason i did neptune is because i thought it would be interesting to do such a big planet that has 13 moons and has a pretty blue . And i wanted to do a planet i havent done yet.xz
How many spacecraft's that visited neptune!!!!
"The only spacecraft that has ever visited neptune was NASA's Voyager 2 spacecraft, which visited the planet during its Grand Tour of the Solar System. Voyager 2 made it's Neptune flyby on August 25, 1989,passing within 3,000 km of the planet's north pole,"
Neptune was discovered by jean joseph Le verrier.

Neptune is the roman god of the sea.
In greek, Neptune is called poseidon
Neptune has the second largest gravity of any planet
In the solar system
Second only to jupiter
Neptune spins very quickly on its axis.
The planets equatorial clouds take 18 hours to complete one rotation. The reason this happens is that Neptune does not have a soild body.
