Number of Neptune rings

How many Neptune rings are there?

5

It is interesting to know the fact that Neptune has five rings: Galle, Le Verrier, Lassell, Arago, and Adams. The main idea is that these rings were named after the astronomers who made an important discovery regarding the planet. Did you know that the rings are composed of at least 20% dust wihile some of the rings contain as much as 70% dust?  Needless to say, the rest of the material comprising the rings is represented by small rocks.  Keep in mind the fact that Neptune’s rings are difficult to see because they are dark and vary in density and size.
