You should be standing in front of an old, evergreen tree. Just to the left you will find the SUN. Stand on it carefully; it is HOT!
The SUN is a hot ball of fire 865,000 miles in diameter, with a surface temperature of 10,000 degrees F. It is about 4.6 billion years old and is 93,000,000 miles or 1 Astronomical Unit (A.U.) from earth. Sunlight takes roughly 8 minutes and 20 seconds to reach Earth, traveling at 186,282 miles per second. Only 2 billionths of the SUN's light reaches the EARTH, the rest is lost in space.
Travel now you must. a distance of 2,798,800,000 miles or 30AU's; past the small inner planets, past the giant gas planets, and Uranus to the outer reaches of the solar system to find NEPTUNE.
On the Planet Walk each foot = 8.2 million miles! You do the math!
I hope you brought your overcoat! NEPTUNE, at 31,763 miles in diameter, and with a surface temperature of -353 degrees F is one cold place. NEPTUNE’S atmosphere is made up of Hydrogen, Helium, Methane, and Acetylene.
NEPTUNE was discovered by means of mathematics before being seen through a telescope. Astronomers had noticed that URANUS was not always in the position they predicted for it.
In 1843 John C. Adams, an English astronomer and mathematician, and Urbain J.J. Leverrier, a young French mathematician began working on the problem. On Sept. 23, 1846 NEPTUNE was found by Johann G. Galle, director of the Urania Observatory in Berlin, Germany, near the position predicted by Adams, and Urbain, who are credited with the discovery. The planet was named NEPTUNE, after the Roman sea god.
NEPTUNE has four faint rings and eight known moons: Naiad, Thalassa, Despina, Galatea, Larissa, Proteus, Triton, and Nereid.
From NEPTUNE, on a heading of 44 Degrees travel 95 paces to the standing cellulose.
On a heading of 86 Degrees and 45 paces you will find the 1881 Monoliths.
On a heading of 138 Degrees and 38 paces, you need to travel back in time to pay a visit with John, who traveled a long way to Mt. Ida helping to lay the corner stone of the original building. The name of Mt. Ida was later changed in honor of John.
On a heading of 306 Degrees, travel 64 paces to another standing piece of cellulose.
On a heading of 354 Degrees and 61 paces you will find the entrance to the black hole. Be brave, and enter the hole cautiously.
Bare right 13 paces and you should be there.
