Sun

There’s no doubt we’ve figured out a lot about the cosmos, especially in the last century. But there are some unexplained stellar mysteries.

The color of Neptune is a bright azure blue. During its flyby in 1989, NASA’s Voyager 2 revealed the bright blue color, different from the pale blue color of Uranus. So why does Neptune have this color?  The answer to Neptune’s color comes from its cloud tops. The upper atmosphere of Neptune is made up of 80% hydrogen,19% helium with a trace 1% amount of methane and other ices, like ammonia and water. Methane absorbs light at 600 nm, which is the red end of the spectrum of visible light.
