Earth's Atmosphere Top to Bottom 0–350km. The air you breathe is precious, and the farther from Earth's surface you go, the less there is. But Earth's atmosphere extends farther into space than you might realize, affecting the orbits of spacecraft more than 200 miles high. OurAmazingPlanet looks at what's in the atmosphere, from way out there, to up where the clouds hang out, to right down here.

Moons of Neptune: Giant Blue Planet's 14 Satellites Unmasked #Infographic

The gas giant planet Neptune in our solar system has 14 known moons, including the strange backwards-orbiting Triton. See how Neptune's moons orbit the giant blue planet, and what we know about the Neptunian satellites in this infographic.
Infographic: Facts about Neptune's fourteen moons. 17 days after the planet Neptune was discovered, an astronomer named William Lassell discovered Neptune's first moon, Triton. Triton is 2707 km in diameter, and had it been orbiting the Sun, instead of Neptune, then it could have been called a planet. The orbit of Triton is retrograde, which means it orbits in the opposite direction to the planet's rotation. This is also indicative of the fact that Neptune actually captured Triton.

NGC 6302 (The Butterfly Nebula): With an estimated surface temperature of about 250,000 degrees C, the central star of this particular planetary nebula is exceptionally hot -- shining brightly in ultraviolet light but hidden from direct view by a dense torus of dust. This dramatically detailed close-up of the dying star's nebula was recorded by the newly upgraded Hubble Space Telescope. Credit: NASA, ESA, and the Hubble SM4 ERO Team
