Temperature On Neptune

Neptune is the planet that is the furthest away from the sun. It is about 4.5 billion kilometers from the sun, which is more than three times as distant as Saturn. It is also one of the coldest planets in the solar system.

Neptune’s temperature can be as low as 55 Kelvin (-218 degrees Celsius). The average temperature of Neptune is about 73 Kelvin (-200 Celsius). However, at the South Pole of Neptune the temperature is about -10 degrees Celsius warmer than the rest of the planet. The South Pole is warmer due to its exposure to the sun. As Neptune continues to orbit around the sun, the position of the poles will reverse, which will eventually make the northern pole become warmer, and the southern pole become cooler.

As you travel into the interior of Neptune, the temperatures of the interior will increase dramatically. The temperature of Neptune’s interior is much hotter than its surface. The temperature of the core of Neptune can reach up to 7000 degrees Celsius, which is as hot as the surface of the sun. The significant difference in temperatures between the core and the surface on Neptune results in powerful wind storms that can reach up to 2,400 km/h – making the winds of Neptune the fastest in the solar system.
