Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system. It has 67 moons which orbit around it. The spot in the lower left is the Great Red Spot, a giant storm that has existed since the 17th century.

Jupiter - I just learned that when NASA sent a space probe to Jupiter back in 1995, it took 14 years to get there and once it finally entered Jupiter's atmosphere and started dropping down towards the core, the pressure was so intense that after 58 minutes of descending, the space probe was CRUSHED! How cool is that?! (Thank you Netflix for having dorky shows for me to watch) :)

Jovian Belts.The atmosphere of Jupiter is the largest planetary atmosphere in the Solar System. It is mostly made of molecular hydrogen and helium in roughly solar proportions; other chemical compounds are present only in small amounts and include methane, ammonia, hydrogen sulfide and water. Although water is thought to reside deep in the atmosphere, its directly measured concentration is very low.
