The Kuiper Belt
Region of space where comets exist.
The Kuiper Belt is the region outside the orbit of Neptune.
It shaped more like an ellipse than a circle, which is similar to an asteroid belt.
While the asteroid belt is mostly metal and rock, the Kuiper Belt is composed almost entirely of icy chunks of various substances.
The makeup of Kuiper Belt Objects is similar to the composition of comets – a mixture of frozen water, ammonia and various hydrocarbons, such as methane.

In 1613, Galileo observed Neptune when it was very close to Jupiter, but he thought it was just a star
winds are the fastest on Neptune, reaching over 1000 miles/hour
Triton & Nereid are the only moons you can see through a telescope
It took theVoyager 2 12 years to reach Neptune
