Jupiter (142.984 km at the equator), continues to be a fascinating reference for astronomers of all levels. Best to look at the planet, and the others too, is when it is in oposition (fully illuminated by the Sun). When a planet is in its orbit on the same side of the Sun, usually it is the closest to us, and so the features of the largest planet in our Solar System are most visible through a telescope.

But to see Jupiter when it is closest to Earth, we should wait 11.86 yearsbecause that it is the time of its orbital rotation around the Sun.

About the inside of the planet we don't know many things and will not know for a long time to come. Only Galileo spacecraft managed to release an atmospheric probe in Jupiter's upper clouds, and lost signal when was 150 km deep. If this planet, like other gaseous planets, has a rocky soil or not, we can only guess for now.

It is thought that Jupiter has a rocky core, which has between 10 to 15 Earth masses.

Despite its size, the giant planet is not heavy. If it dropped in an ocean big enough, it would float to the surface, as Saturn.
