Mass one-thousandth that of the Sun but is two and a half times the mass of all the other planets in our Solar System combined. #Jupiter is classified as a gas giant along with Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. Together, these four planets are sometimes referred to as the Jovian or outer planets.

The Great Red Spot of Jupiter SHRINKING ~ A storm that's been raging for over 300 years, it's three times the size of the entire Earth. NASA's recent Hubble Space Telescope observations confirm the Great Red Spot now is approximately 10,250 miles across, less than half the size of some historical measurements. Hubble's images over a span of decades show that the Great Red Spot is SHRINKING. NASA's Juno spacecraft is hurtling toward Jupiter now, due to reach the giant planet in July 2016…

Like the sun, Jupiter is composed predominantly of hydrogen & helium. But unlike the sun, it lacks the necessary amount to begin fusion, the process that fuels a star. Jupiter would need to be 75-80 times more massive than it is at present to be considered a star. If all of the planets in the solar system had formed as part of the gas giant, it still would not have sufficient mass. Still, by itself, Jupiter is 2 & 1/2 times larger than all of the other planets in the solar system combined.
