Voyager 2 image of Neptune

Voyager 2 spacecraft image of the planet Neptune, reconstructed from two images taken through green & clear filters by Voyager's narrow- angle camera. Voyager passed within 5, 000 km of Neptune during August 1989. Towards the north (top of image) is the Great Dark Spot, a giant cloud system that is accompanied by bright, white clouds which undergo rapid changes in appearance. To the south of the Great Dark Spot is a solitary white feature, the so-called "scooter". Further to the south is a smaller dark spot with a bright, white centre. Strong eastward winds cause the smaller, faster moving dark spot to overtake the Great Dark Spot every five days

Solar system planetary orbits, artwork

Solar system planetary orbits, artwork. The Sun is at centre, with planetary orbits marked by blue ellipses. The four rocky planets of the inner solar system, moving outwards from the Sun, are: Mercury, Venus, Earth (with its Moon), and Mars. The asteroid belt is next, followed by the four gas giant planets of the outer solar system (all with their largest moons shown): Jupiter (lower left), Saturn (lower right), Uranus (upper left, ringed), and Neptune (top left). Beyond Neptune is the Kuiper Belt (top left corner). In the background at right is the Milky Way. The distances between the planets is not to scale

Gliese 436b is a mid-sized exoplanet roughly the size of Neptune in our own Solar System. It orbits its parent star, the red dwarf Gliese 436, at an extremely close-in distance of just 0.03 astronomical units, taking 2.64 days to go around once. By contrast, Mercury orbits at more than 10 times this distance from the Sun and takes 88 days. Gliese 436b was found using the transit method of discovery, whereby the planet -- as seen from the Earth -- passes first in front of and then behind its parent star. During these events, called transits, the brightness of the system is modulated, enabling astronomers to infer the presence of a planet and calculate its orbital period and mass using the laws of motion
