Jupiter is the largest planet in our solar system, and is the first of the Gas Giants. This picture was taken with the Nordic Optical Telescope.



The most noticable feature of Jupiter is its Great Red Spot (seen above), a "Super-hurricane" that blows around the planet's southern hemisphere.


Because of it's size, it's not surprising that Jupiter has 16 moons! Four of Jupiter's largest moons, called Galilean Moons are pictured above. These images were taken by the Hubble Space Telesope!
