Mass of Neptune
Neptune's mass of 1.0243 x 10kg is intermediate between Earth and the larger gas giant . It is 17 times that of Earth by just 1/19th that of Jupiter. Neptune's diameter is slightly less than four times that of the Earth's, it hass 17 times the mass . If you weigh 180 pounds on Earth, you would weigh 202 pounds at Neptune's cloud tops .
The eighth planet from the sun , Neptune was the first planet located through mathematical predictions rather than through regular observations of the sky. (Galileo had recorded it as fixed star during observations with his small telescope in 1912 and 1613.)
