Uranus was the first planet to be discovered with a telescope: specifically, on March 13, 1871, the British astronomer William Herschel observed a "star" from his garden in Bath. But Uranus is visible to the naked eye, which is not the case with Neptune , the planet furthest from the Solar System since Pluto lost planet status in 2006.
The fastest winds in the entire Solar System have also been recorded on this planet, five times those recorded on Earth .
2,400 km / h
In 1989, NASA’s Voyager 2 space probe recorded winds of about 2,400 km / h at Neptune, propelling methane clouds over the planet’s surface.
This speed is five times the fastest estimated wind on Earth, a gust of approximately 486 km / h recorded during a tornado in Oklahoma, in the United States, in 1999, according to a mobile meteorological observatory with Doppler radar on May 3 by scientists from the University of Oklahoma.
As has been said, Neptune is the most distant planet in the solar system, an ice giant about 30 times farther from the Sun than Earth. Its atmosphere is a combination of methane, hydrogen, and helium.
Galileo’s drawings show that the planet Neptune was observed for the first time on December 28, 1612, and again on January 27, 1613; both times Galileo mistook Neptune for a star near Jupiter in the night sky .
