Jupiter is the fifth planet from the Sun and the largest planet within the Solar System. It is a gas giant with mass one-thousandth that of the Sun but is two and a half times the mass of all the other planets in our Solar System combined. Jupiter is classified as a gas giant along with Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Together, these four planets are sometimes referred to as the Jovian or outer planets.

Jupiter. Jupiter is a large planet (it is 318 times the mass of our planet, Earth) but it is not big enough to be considered a star. To be a star, Jupiter would need more than 70 times its current mass. This planet is the fastest spinning planet in our solar system (it takes about 10 hours to complete a full rotation on its axis) and it has a strong magentic field (14 times stronger than Earth's).

If the planets were as far away from earth as the moon… (think that I would be scared by Jupiter & Saturn! lol)

For kids who love planets, and especially Jupiter. Here is an easy to understand fact sheet on the biggest planet in the solar system, Jupiter. Brought to you by http://www.OpticsCentral... - Telescopes Australia.

Jupiter and Io. "The image shows a major eruption in progress on Io's night side, at the northern volcano Tvashtar. Incandescent lava glows red beneath a high volcanic plume, whose uppermost portions are illuminated by sunlight. The plume appears blue due to scattering of light by small particles in the plume."
