You might not be so bright, but I am!  


Status update:

~10-5-2013~ I am single. I have been single since 1898. (when I was found) 

~10-9-13~ I am in the pizza shop just hanging  with the window!

~10-16-13~ Today I'm in the store trying to find a new light bulb.

~10- 31-13~ It's Halloween! I am currently on the "Haunted House" sign.

~11-5-13~ I have not really been found in many chemical equations because I don't react well with others. There are rumors that I might of made a compound with Fluorine......but you'll just have to wait and see. I wish that someday I'll be in lots of chemical equations like Oxygen and Carbon.


Hey! My name is Neon. I'm a colorless, and odorless. In my gas state I am also tasteless. When I'm under low pressure, I glow a bright red orange color.



Relationship Status: 

Single ( because I'm a noble gas)

Primary Relationship: 

None   :,( 



valence electrons:


reactivity: Nonreactive 
state of matter:  Gas 
Location on Periodic Table: Period 2, Group 18 




United Kingdom 


I Shine so Bright. Autobiography by Neon 

Activities & Interests:

I am used to make neon signs. When a electric current is passed through, neon gas is passed through a tube. Under low pressure I produce a very bright red orange color.


I am not apart of any reactions. I haven't made any true compounds with anyone else yet. If I  were tor react with someone else I would either have a double 

displacement, single displacement, combustion, decomposition, acid based, or synthesis. 


In the air. ( neon is found in low amounts in the air.)

This is what I'm used for. They are 

usually a bright red/ orange color thought. 

My bright color has inspired

desigeners to come out with bright

colored clothing.

This  picture shows my atomic number,

symbol, and mass.

This is me! I am commonly found in stores! 

This is me in a discharge tube. This red/orange color is the natural color I come in.

Why is neon a noble gas?

neon said

at 2:06 pm on Oct 25, 2013

Neon is a noble gas because it has a full valance electron shell. There are six noble gases total. They are Helium, Aragon, Krypton, Xenon, Radon, and me!We all have 8 valance electrons.

How was neon discovered?

neon said

at 2:10 pm on Oct 29, 2013

Neon was discovered through the study of liquefied air. It was discovered by Sir William Ramsay and Morris M. Travers. I was discovered shortly after my friend krypton.

Why is neon monatomic?

neon said

at 2:32 pm on Oct 29, 2013

I am monatomic because i don't react with other molecules. Since I have all my valance electrons, i don't have any empty spaces left.

How are you the same as the neon on cloths?

neon said

at 5:30 pm on Nov 4, 2013

I am not the same. I just meant my bright colors have inspired this trend.

You said that you produce a pretty orange light, well when I react, i produce a bright red color. Ain't that cool?

neon said

at 5:33 pm on Nov 4, 2013

Woah! That's really cool?

Hey, neon; finally there's somone that doesn't react like me. I feel your pain :(

neon said

at 5:34 pm on Nov 4, 2013

Hahah forever alone :)

Hey neon, I heard you don't react very well, well I react so much it's annoying!

neon said

at 5:36 pm on Nov 4, 2013

yeah it's true.

oxygen said

Everyone is always wanting to react with me! What is like to not be able to react with anyone?

neon said

at 5:37 pm on Nov 4, 2013

It's not fun at all. :( Im always lonely.

argon said

I'm right there with you Neon. I'm forever alone too. Having a full valence shell has its downsides. I wish I had more friends.....

It most be cool being all bright and standing out.

Your incredibly non-reactive!! SHAME ON YOU!
