Jupiter


Jupiter 



Jupiter is by far the largest planet in our Solar System. The Earth could fit inside Jupiter more than 1000 times. 
 
Jupiter is a very stormy planet. There are storms found throughout the atmosphere, and most of the storms seem to never end. The many different cloud formations and storms in the atmosphere also make Jupiter a very colorful planet.

Jupiter's great red spot, visible in the picture above to the right, is where a giant storm has been raging for at least 300 years. This red spot is also called "The Eye of Jupiter" because of its shape.  

Jupiter has 50 official moons and 12 provisional (unofficial) moons.
