Orbiting the sun at over 2 billion miles away Neptune is the eighth and farthest planet from the sun (that we know of). Neptune orbits the sun so far and slowly that it has not yet completed one orbit around the sun since its discovery in 1846. Neptune unlike any of the other planets was first predicted to exist based on mathematical calculations based on discrepancies in the orbit of Uranus. Nearly nothing was known about Neptune until the arrival of the Voyager 2 spacecraft in 1989. It…
