The farthest planet from the Sun, I’m named for the Roman God of the Sea, but it’s not water that makes me so blue. It’s the methane in my atmosphere.
Because I am so far away, you can’t see me with the naked eye.I was the first planet found through mathematical prediction, rather than direct observation.
My most defining characteristic is the active storm system similar to Jupiter’s Red Spot. Surrounded by white cirrus clouds of frozen methane, I have winds stronger than any other planet’s – as high as 1,300 miles per hour!
