Neptune Is Neat (and a bit Mysterious!)
By Erin Horner
  

1     Neptune is a neat planet. It is also a bit mysterious. Neptune is four times bigger across than Earth. It is also thirty times further away from the sun. This means that no one can see Neptune without a telescope. It is just too far away. When scientists and satellites have studied Neptune, they have learned some neat and mysterious things.
 
2     Neptune is covered with bright blue clouds. These clouds are made of frozen methane. They swirl around the planet at up to 1,300 miles per hour. That is a lot faster than any wind gust here on Earth. In 1989 Voyager 2 found a Great Dark Spot on Neptune. This looked a lot like Jupiter's Great Red Spot. They think that it was caused by a swirling hurricane. But in 1994, it was gone! The Hubble Space Telescope could not find it. It seems to have vanished. How mysterious!
