Neptune
Neptune is the 8th planet from the Sun. It is a little smaller than Uranus, but almost
4 times larger than Earth.

It is about 4.5 billion kilometers, or 2.8 billion miles, from the Sun. It takes almost
165 years to go once around the Sun.

Neptune appears to have clouds, but is so far from Earth that little is known about
this palnet.
