It  is so far awaythat, seen from Neptune, the Sun must appear just  as a bright point. Neptune's atmosphere has methane hut no detectable ammonia. Its cloud  temperature is about -237°C.  Neptune is orbited by Triton, one of  the biggest satellites in the Solar System.It orbits Neptune in a clockwise drrection, i.e. opposite to the planet's own rotation.  It has an atmosphere of nitrogen and methane. It may even have an ocean of  liquid nitrogen.  'lhton is acmmpanied by  a smaller satellite, Nereid. In 1989, Voyager 2- passed within 35,000  km of Neptune and  within 40,000 km of Triton resulting in a significant  increase  in our knowIedge about Neptune and  its satellites.
