Neptune and It's Rings

MorBius
Neptune (IPA: /ˈnɛptjuːn/) is the eighth planet from the Sun in the Solar System. Discovered on September 23, 1846, Neptune was the first planet discovered by mathematical prediction rather than regular observation. Neptune has 13 known moons. The largest by far, and the only one massive enough to be spheroidal, is Triton, discovered by William Lassell just 17 days after the discovery of Neptune itself. Neptune also has a ring system consisting of six rings discovered by the Voyager spacecraft in 1989. The model shows the planet with it's axial tilt of 29.56 deg to the plane of the ecliptic. The various features (Uranus, the ring system, the plane of ecliptic indicator, and the ring descriptions) can be toggled on and off via the Layer Manager. The planet globe was constructed using Anim8or using an overlaid orthographic map by NASA. The model is scaled at 1/1000 km #orbit #plane_of_the_ecliptic #Planet #ring #rings #Solar_System #space #Uranus
