Eventually, it will get so close that it may get torn apart by Neptune's gravity and possibly form rings more spectacular than Saturn's. Since its discovery in 1846, Neptune has completed only one full orbit of the Sun. In fact, it takes 165 years for the planet to go around the Sun. Pluto, a dwarf planet which has an orbit which sometimes crosses Neptune's, may have been a moon of Neptune which escaped the planet's pull of gravity, but being prevented from escaping the Solar System by the gravitational pull of the Sun. Interesting Facts About Neptune It has the strongest winds. It takes12 years for a probe to reach Neptune. Melisa Kara Selin Uygun
