You'll be asking your self by now, "What the hell is that trident!!!" It's really quite simple, that trident
is the symbol of Neptune. There is a symbol for every planet in a solar system. They are shown below.
Neptune is rather like Uranus, there are only a few differences...
- Neptune looks a lot bluer.
- Neptune has a large dark spot, a bit like one on Jupiter but Jupiter's is red. Neptune also has a smaller
dark dot called The Scooter because it scoots round the planet.
- Neptune has some nuclear reactions going on in the centre.
- Neptune has some wicked winds blowing.
Apart from that nearly everything on Neptune is similar to Uranus, including...
- Neptune's magnetic field is nearly as wonky as Uranus's.
- Neptune has weedy black rings.
- Neptune has moons.
- Neptune would be very dodgy to land on.
If you managed to land on Neptune, don't get comfy, cause Neptune's a bad place for birthdays. Neptune
takes almost 165 Earth years to go round the sun once, which means it's a rotten place to be born on because you'll never
live long enough
to celebrate your first birthday. It takes 16 hours to spin around, which means even Neptune days are similar to Uranus.
People used to think that Neptune only had two moons, Triton and Nedrid, until Voyager 2 came by and
found six more moons. At this time scientist's imaginations were running a bit thin, so starting from the nearest to the planet,
this is what they're called:
N6, N5, N4, N3, N2, N1, Triton and Nedrid.
Pathetic, ain't it.
