Jupiter is 5th in distance from the Sun. About 757,712,239 km away and 842.58 million km away from the Earth
00:14
The radius is about 69,911 kilometers!

00:16
This makes it ELVEN times wider than the Earth!
00:19
It makes a compete orbit around the sun 1 year in Jovian time or 12 Earth days (4,333 Earth days)
00:19
Jupiter takes about 10 hours to rotate which makes it the fasts planet with the shortest day in the solar system
00:25
Jupiter is covered in thick red, brown, yellow, and white clouds. The clouds make it look like stripes.
00:27
The most famous feature is called the Great Red Spot.
00:31
The Great Red Spot is a gigantic storm located on Jupiter's southern hemisphere that is twice as big as our Earth, measured to be 16,350 km wide
00:35
Jupiter's clouds are about -145 degrees celsius.
00:36
The center of it is much hotter about 24,000 degrees celsius which is hotter than the sun’s surface!

Jupiter has 53 confirmed moons and 26 provisional that are waiting for confirmation of discovery. Meaning it has 79 total moons.
00:46
There is no way there would be life on Jupiter. The temperature, pressure, and materials that characterize the planet are to extreme for organisms to adapt to
00:50
Jupiter is only made up of two elements, hydrogen and helium. This makes it a Gas Giant.
00:51
Since it's a Gas Giant, it does not have a solid surface. It is also the heaviest planet.
00:56
Jupiter has been visited by spacecraft 7 times in 1973, 1974, 1979, 1992, 1995, 2000, and 2007
01:01
It is the third brightest object in the solar system, after Venus and the Moon so you may be able to see it
