You may want to head on back, have a shower and then return to the finishing line to cheer on the last runners as they complete their journey. In the evening all the runners are encouraged to head on over to the Outback Pioneer Hotel pub at pm for an informal get together, a few drinks and some dancing. This is a great way to end your day food and drinks at own expense. Breakfast is at your hotel this morning for all those on an accommodation package.
This is a great way to take any unwanted aches and pains out of your legs and it is also a fun way to wind down.

Both of these are far out from the planet with the span across the larger one twice that across the previously known rings. As rings continually lose the dust and other particles from which they are made, they can only survive for an extended period of time if they have a supply of new material. For the largest ring a newly discovered moon called Mab seems to be the source of fresh material.

As small rocks moving around the solar system hit Mab, they blast dust from its surface and this dust settles on the ring. Uranus facts Diameter: 51 km Distance from Sun: million km Period to travel around Sun: 84 years Period to turn around axis: 17 hours Number of known satellites: 27 A composite image of Uranus taken by the Hubble Space Telescope in September It shows the disc of the planet with its inner rings and, in a longer exposure, the two outer rings. The planet was found less than one degree from its predicted position, and the discovery was hailed as a brilliant achievement.
It was named Neptune after the Roman god of the seas. Nearly four times the diameter of Earth and 54 times its volume, Neptune is like a blue version of Jupiter.

The spacecraft Voyager 2 visited the planet in August Scientists were surprised to find that the spot was not visible on recent Hubble Space Telescope photos of Neptune. However, another Great Dark Spot was seen in a different part of the planet. These dark spots may be holes in the cloud layers. It orbits Neptune backwards, that is, in the opposite direction to most of the other moons in the solar system.
To astronomers this suggests that Triton was formed elsewhere and later captured by Neptune.

According to the definition, for an object circling the Sun to be called a planet it must have sufficient mass for gravity to pull it into a spherical or ball-like shape. In addition, it cannot have other bodies circling the Sun in the same path. This last criterion removes Pluto from the status of a planet as there are numerous other bodies moving around the Sun in its region. Initially, astronomers were aware of three dwarf planets, but have now discovered a fourth, Makemake, and a fifth Haumea.
Andy Fryar says:
More dwarf objects are likely to be added to the list as new ones are identified. A relatively large moon called Charon circles Pluto every six days and both bodies spin on their axes so as to keep showing the same face to each other. Two small, more distant moons, Nix and Hydra, were discovered in and an even smaller one, dubbed P4, in Ceres was the first of the small bodies now known as dwarf planets to be discovered, in , and hence has the modern designation 1 Ceres. Identified in , Eris has a diameter of km and is three times as far from the Sun as Pluto. This makes it the most distant body circling the Sun so far discovered.
The finding of a small moon called Dysnomia, which takes 16 days to go around Eris, allowed astronomers to establish that the dwarf planet is 27 per cent more massive than Pluto. There are also thousands of small rocky objects called asteroids or minor planets and, at the outer reaches of the solar system, billions of comets. Most asteroids circle the Sun in a belt between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter.
At times a few of the largest and brightest asteroids can be seen with a pair of binoculars, but finding the others in the sky needs more sophisticated equipment and knowledge. After circling Vesta for a year, the spacecraft will move towards the dwarf planet Ceres. There are far more comets than asteroids and generally they are found at the edge of the solar system.
