Jupiter is the largest planet in the Solar System. It has a diameter of 86, 881 miles and has 2.5 times the mass of all the other planets in the Solar System combined.
Jupiter can be seen from Earth with a telescope. In fact, it is the third brightest object in the night sky, after the Moon and Venus.
The Giant Red Spot on Jupiter’s surface is actually a persistent giant storm. This storm has been in existence since the seventeenth century and some scientists believe it will continue until 2040 or longer.
