Jupiter is the fifth planet from the Sun and the largest in the Solar System. It is a gas giant with a mass one-thousandth that of the Sun, but two-and-a-half times that of all the other planets in the Solar System combined. Jupiter is the biggest planet in our solar system . · Jupiter is covered in swirling cloud stripes. · Jupiter is a gas giant and doesn't have a solid. Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system at nearly 11 times the size of Earth and 317 times its mass. Jupiter, being the biggest planet, gets its name from the king of the ancient Roman gods. Jupiter is a massive planet, twice the size of all other planets combined and has a centuries-old storm.

The gas giant is indeed the largest planet in the solar system, weighing more than twice the mass of all the other planets, moons, asteroids, comets, and more combined. However, Jupiter does not technically orbit the sun — because it's so dauntingly massive. Jupiter is a lot larger than Earth. It has 318 times more mass. As a result, the barycenter of Jupiter and the sun isn't in the center of the sun.

When a small object orbits a big object in space, the less massive one doesn't travel in a perfect circle around. "The Sun actually orbits Jupiter slightly," O'Donoghue said. Within the Solar System, planets and their moons. Jupiter is the biggest planet. So, it doesn't orbit the precise center of the sun. Yet, it orbits the Sun with an orbit 5.2 Astronomical Unit.

The planet Jupiter has a system of rings known as the rings of Jupiter or the Jovian ring system . It was the third ring system to be discovered. Jupiter's rings are formed from dust particles hurled up by micro-meteor impacts on Jupiter's small inner moons and captured. Jupiter's rings · Halo — This is a faint, wide doughnut-shaped ring, and the closest to Jupiter. · The Main ring — Extending out of the halo ring. Jupiter's ring system has three main components: a pair of very faint outer rings called the gossamer rings.
