Planet of the Month: Neptune

NeptunEnglish

Neptune was named after the Roman sea god Neptune. The name fits well, because it has such a beautiful blue color, just like the sea. 

It is also very cold there, -214 °C. Here on Earth we think it’s cold when it is -20 °C. 

Uranus and Neptune are often called Ice Giants to distinguish them from the Gas Giants.

Neptun fikk navnet sitt etter den romerske havguden Neptun. Det passer jo, for den har så fin blåfarge, akkurat som sjøen.

Det er også veldig kaldt der, -214 °C! Vi her på Jorda synes det er kaldt med -20 °C.

Neptun er så stor, at nesten 60 jordkloder kan få plass inni den!
