The wind on which planet can blow up to 1,500 miles per hour?



Neptune




Answer: Neptune is the most distant planet from the Sun, with temperatures that plunge down to 55 Kelvin, or -218 degrees Celsius. The weather on Neptune is some of the most violent weather in the Solar System. Astronomers have clocked winds on Neptune traveling at 1,500 mph which is the fastest planetary winds detected yet in the solar system. More than 30 times as far from the sun as Earth, the planet takes almost 165 Earth years to orbit our sun. In 2011 Neptune completed its first orbit since its discovery in 1846.





Neptune can be seen with binoculars (if you know exactly where to look) but a large telescope is needed to see anything other than a tiny disk. There are several Web sites that show the current position of Neptune (and the other planets) in the sky, but much more detailed charts will be required to actually find it. Such charts can be created with a planetarium program.
