Honeycomb is a fictional planet created by C.Syde65 in 2006. It is very far away from the Sun in the Solar System, even further away than Pluto.

It is the fifth-largest planet by diameter and the fifth-largest by mass. Among the gaseous planets in the Solar System, Honeycomb, along with Neptune are the most dense. Honeycomb is 13 times the mass of Earth and is slightly smaller than Uranus which is 15 times the mass of Earth, and not as dense as Neptune. Neptune is slightly more massive than Uranus, being 17 times the mass of Earth, though it is slightly smaller than Uranus by diameter.

Honeycomb (Planet) and Earth size comparison

An approximate size comparison between Honeycomb, and Earth.

Honeycomb is similar in composition to Uranus and Neptune, and all have compositions that differ from those of the larger gas giants, Jupiter and Saturn. Honeycomb's atmosphere, like Jupiter's and Saturn's, is composed primarily of hydrogen and helium, along with traces of hydrocarbons and possibly nitrogen; it contains a higher proportion of "ices" such as water, ammonia, and methane. Honeycomb, Uranus and Neptune are sometimes categorised as "ice giants" to emphasise this distinction.

The interior of Honeycomb, like that of Uranus and Neptune, is primarily composed of ices and rock. Perhaps the core has a solid surface, but the temperature would be thousands of degrees and the atmospheric pressure crushing. Traces of methane in the outermost regions in part account for the planet's blue appearance.

Being further away from the Sun, than Pluto, Neptune and Uranus, Honeycomb would be a lot colder. Honeycomb looks exactly like Neptune, except that it's slightly smaller in diameter and mass, and it is painted with yellow ovals.

Honeycomb has a planetary ring system, though one much less substantial than that of Saturn. The rings may consist of ice particles coated with silicates or carbon-based material, which most likely gives them a reddish hue.

Similar to Jupiter and Neptune, Honeycomb has a spot on it, which is an anticyclonic storm. The obvious differences between Neptune's spot and Honeycomb's is that Honeycomb's is a yellowish colour and is smaller in size, hence being a smaller planet. The interiors of spots on Honeycomb are relatively cloud-free, similar to that of Neptune, and unlike Jupiter's spot, which has lasted for hundreds of years, their lifetimes appear to be shorter, forming and dissipating once every few years or so. Honeycomb appears to spend somewhat more than half its time with a spot on it, similar to that of Neptune.
