Neptune was discovered nearly one (Neptune) year ago

Neptune takes 164 Earth years to orbit around the Sun.

As the first direct observation of the blue-green gas giant was made on Sept. 23, 1846, Neptune will arrive back in approximately the same spot as where it was first spotted on July 12, 2011.
