Jupiter

Size: Largest planet in the solar system. 143,000 kilometers (about 89,000 miles). More than 1,000 Earths can fit into Jupiter. Distance From the Sun: Fifth planet from the Sun and 5.2 astronomical units away. Composition: Just like a star or the Sun. A gas planet made up of hydrogren gas and helium gas. Covered in thick red, brown, yellow, and white clouds. Temperature: The clouds of Jupiter are about -145 degrees Celsius (-234 degrees Fahrenheit). The core can be 24,000 degrees Celsius (43,000 degrees Fahrenheit). Hotter than the surface of the sun.

Interesting Facts: - Can be seen without a telescope because it is so big.- Second brightest planet in the solar system.- No true surface (made entirely out of gas).- Moon facts (Io:active volcanoes, Europa: mostly water ice; twice as much water than Earth,Ganymede: largest and has its own magnetic field, and Callisto: many craters, icy, rock material.

Moons/Satellites: 62 moons. Jupiter's four largest moons (Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto) are known as the Galilean satellites. Orbital Path: One rotation = one year (10 hours long). Jupiter's orbit is elliptical, or oval-shaped. One year on Jupiter = 12 years on Earth.Distinctive Features: The Great Red Spot (giant spinning storm, resembling a hurricane. At its widest point, the storm is about three-and-a-half times the diameter of Earth), 3 thin rings (made up of dust particles), and an extremely powerful magnetic field.
