My fav planet

Neptune from Voyager 2

is the eighth and farthest planet from the Sun in our Solar System. Named for the Roman god of the sea, it is the fourth-largest planet by diameter and the third-largest by mass. Neptune is 17 times the mass of Earth and is slightly more massive than its near-twin Uranus, which is 15 Earth masses and not as dense.[12] On average, Neptune orbits the Sun at a distance of 30.1 AU, and a stylized version of the god Neptune's trident.
