It spins around itself in 16 hours and 6 mins (So one day is 16 hours and 6 minutes). The distance between Earth and Neptune is around 4.4 billion kilometer. Because of the long distance Neptune is invisible to the naked eye. The gravity on Neptune is around 110% of the gravity on Earth so if you weigh 100 kg you will have a weight of 110 kg on Neptune. Neptune has 17 times the as of Earth.
