Why is the planet Neptune blue? The methane clouds in the planet's upper atmosphere absorbs red light and reflects blue light giving the planet its blue color. Methane is a common natural gas that becomes liquified around minus 173 degrees C and freezes just a few degrees below that. The upper atmosphere of Neptune is around this temperature and is mostly made up of tiny droplets of methane forming a blue mist. Underneath the visible surface of the planet lies a thick atmoshpere of helium and hydrogen that thousands of layers down meet with another warmer slush of hydrogen, ice water, and helium that move around inside Neptune. This core region rotates every 16 hours, but the upper atmosphere rotates much slower at different rates at different latitudes. This causes friction that builds up heat inside the planet. This heat causes turbulence in Neptunes atmosphere which was seen by the Voyager 2 probe such as the GDS.
After finding rings around both Jupiter in 1979 and Uranus in 1977, an all-out search for a possible set of rings orbiting around Neptune was sent out. Finally after researching something was found near the planet by Voyager 2. Neptune has a total of five rings that orbit it. Three of which are thread-thin and two that are wider. Strangely the three rings are thicker in some places than in others. But what causes this occurance still remains unknown.
Neptunes Moonís are as follows:
