Planets : Jupiter


Jupiter

Jupiter is the largest planet of the
solar system, with a diameter 11 times the
diameter of earth. It is 778,300,000 km.
or 483,600,000 miles from the sun. Its
temperature is -200 degree Fahrenheit .
Jupiter has 16 moons. Jupiter
orbits the sun in 11.86 years. 


Jupiter rotates on its axis faster than any
planet; one rotation takes only 9.9 hours. It
is a whirling ball of gas compressed to liquid
in the interior. Jupiter's Great Red Spot is
 an intense windstorm three times larger than 
the earth. Jupiter has a faint ring encircling it.
