This Day in History

On September 23, 1846 German astronomer Johann Gottfried Galle discovered the planet Neptune at the Berlin Observatory.  The planet has a diameter four times that of Earth, and it has eight known moons and a ring system.  In 1989, the U.S. spacecraft Voyager 2 was the first human spacecraft to visit Neptune.
