Jupiter through astronomical telescope. December 29, 2013.

Jupiter, is the largest planet in the Solar System in which we are, a system that include a total of 8 planets. It is 318 times larger than the mass of our planet.
Jupiter, in these images is so beautiful with its satellites observed orbiting the planet, similar to tiny pearls around a larger and brighter one.

Despite its size, the giant planet it has not much weight. If it were dropped in an ocean big enough, it would float to the surface, like Saturn otherwise.

The most massive planet in our Solar System, with four large moons and other smaller satellites, Jupiter forms a kind of miniature Solar System because it resembles a star in composition.
In fact, if it were about 80 times more massive, it would have become a sun rather than a planet. The composition of Jupiter's atmosphere is similar to that of the Sun, which is mostly formed by hydrogen and helium.
