  Neptune Neptune: Astronomy: Neptune - Voyage-VOYAGING TO NEPTUNE

VOYAGING TO NEPTUNE

Because of the planet's distance from Earth, information about Neptune accumulated slowly. William Lassell saw Triton, the largest moon, within a month of the planet's discovery, but the second moon, Nereid, was discovered only in 1949, by Gerard Kuiper. In the 1970s and 1980s, astronomers received strong hints of a Neptune ring system, but could not make sense of the data.

  Neptune Neptune: Astronomy: Neptune - Discovery-DISCOVERY TRIUMPH

DISCOVERY TRIUMPH

The discovery of Neptune was a great triumph of mathematical astronomy. By the 1840s, astronomers had known for years that Uranus was not moving as predictions said it should, and that there must be another planet affecting its orbit.

  Neptune Neptune: Astronomy: Neptune - Blue World-VIEWING THE BLUE WORLD

VIEWING THE BLUE WORLD

Seeing Neptune is not particularly difficult—almost any telescope can reach 8th magnitude. Knowing exactly where to look, however, can certainly be a challenge for beginners. Astronomy magazines regularly publish finder charts for Neptune, and any sky-charting software will give its current position.

NEPTUNE

Although it is a dim slot-it from Earth, this deep-blue planet with its bright cloud bands is one of the most varied and interesting in the Sun's family.
