Some Fun Facts

This is the "Big Red" spot on Jupiter. A photo taken by the voyager on its flight path

Along wiht being the largest planet in out solar system, Jupiter also has a total of 67 known moons! Four of which were discovered by astronomer Gallileo Galilei in 1610 and are known as the "Gallilaen Satallites". Those are Io (The first to be discovered, and closest to Jupiter), Europa (second closest), Ganymede (Third closest, also the largest of the four), and Callisto (The furthest from Jupiter, and also is the most cratered object in out solar system). Reading this while the Star Wars theme provided ten times cooler, promise.

Even more awesome is that Jupiter is a "Gas Giant". It's made up mostly of Hydrogen and Helium gases, just like the sun! You know what else has gases, this decomposing whale!-->
