Video by astronomical telescope Jupiter filmed in December 31, 2012

Jupiter, is the largest planet in the Solar System where we live, a systemwhich counts eight planets. Jupiter is 318 times greater than the mass of our planet. This beautiful planet is not like Earth. It consists of clouds of poisonous gas and the colored bands surrounding the planet are mixed gases due to its rapid rotation around its axis. The planet with have the fastest speed of rotation of all the planets in the system. Due to the high speed (one day is approximately 10 hours), Jupiter is slightly flattened, and this is seen on its equator.

Many do not know, but with a modest 7x40 binoculars, you can see 4 of Jupiter's largest moons: Io, Europa, Ganymede and Callisto, of the 63 known moons to date.

Below I've put a 10 minute long video in which we see Jupiter far, and near, filmed with a HD camera of which I gradually increased the zoom.
