Uranus & Neptune 2 giant balls ( of gas )
Beyond, there is Uranus ( say the word quickly so it doesn't sound like a moronic joke ) & Neptune.They are 2 huge balls (I kid U not) made of gas. They orbit our star Sol. This is what we seriously call The Outer Limits ( of our system ). Neptune is blue as it is made of methane (. Very stinky, don't go there on holiday ). Buddies of Sir Patrick Moore, Christ Lintoot & BruceLee Felcher were using the onboard cam of Voyager2 when it did a few turns ( orbits ),around these magnificent gas giants. Uranus has a beautiful greenish tint. While Neptune has an azure blueness that quite simply cannot be expressed in words. U gotta go there to appreciate it; I'd stay at 5,000 KMs' out ; else you get sucked out into deep space due to the warp field array left by the Andromedian aliens. So far, so good. OK, I know, Ur gonna say they're boring 'coz there's no storms or volcanos & so forth but wait! OK? Look towards the north pole and you can see that I formed an S shape on Uranus ( pic#1no mean feat! ). There was however some after Fx on the rest of planet. With incredible stuff at the south pole &, wait 4 it,.. A new ring! Not as huge and astounding as say Saturn's, but nice to eye; provided U go have a peek with a telescope such as the Hubble Or the excellent Hampstead Observatory( which can be hired in red glare ferocity for mere bagatelle to all men of this world ). So, what about Neptune ( the Old Man Of Time ) ,I hear from the snearing cowards up in the Gods? Well abuse asides, it took 3 atomic hydrogen bombs to get the Fx I was after. Boy, them suckers take lots of heavy metal! Wear regulation rad-glasses or retina burn out means a lotta op's. Check out the red glares of these 3 huge doodahs! Maid In Heaven! Play Be-Bop Deluxe track of same name to be in the same frame ( of mind ). U see, Uranus takes 8 Earth years give or take a few par-secs for its Solar year. So a season lasts for 2 years Earth-time & et al. [Oh, check out this page soon 4 BlackDonalds news ]. & Stop laughing about Uranus! It's a planet with a funny name OK! Let's move on. Soon U come 2 the Virgin Plains of Neptune ( where I dropped the clangers ). Bright red & lots of after-burn 3 whoppers! ; pic#2,3. Triton a satellite( moon ) of Neptune, is a vast metallic sphere where many craters give it a look not dissimilar to Earth's Moon. Geezers R regularly going off there to shoot their load & it's got volcanos' . Just be sure no-ones looking chaps? Jokes aside, it's an exciting place 2Go B4 U get sucked into the vortex I mentioned earlier. Paul Able another pal of the great Sir Patrick who does lots for charity & is an authority on the subject. He says " What AstroNutter has done is put Uranus back on the star-map, his bold planet aRt must held in the highest of esteem! Never since the time of Herschell has anyone given so much to our profession!" & so forth ( check podcast on iTunes 4 in depth interview). Uranus can currently be seen in the northern hemisphere just below the Pisces circlet ( the green hue) as a bright star-like object not to be confused with the Great Square of Pegasus. Moving closer in the storms on Saturn bear close scrutiny as so it's satellite Europa where life swirls in its deep oceans. Mars! Yes, what of the grand old chum of Mummy Earth? Well the Phobos Grunt is a probe that's been sent in to gather data for BP & the Reds Under Our Beds but got lathered by the top Yank Curiosity Got The Plank. Why send a robot to do a sentient beings job, right? Arthur C Clark pic#4 went to set up moon base 1 but due to meteorites & asteroids was forced to put it underground on the dark side of the moon. Still, from tiny acorns or l'argent non fait pas la bon vite. Keep'emPeeled.
