We have eight planets in our Solar System and today we are going to talk about Jupiter. It is the fifth closest planet to the sun🌞 and also the largest planet in the solar system.

Jupiter is called a gas giant planet. This is because its surface is made up of a thick layer of hydrogen gas.😮

The temperature on Jupiter is around -230 degrees which is very cold🥶 because Jupiter is very away from the heat of the sun.

Jupiter has many storms raging on the surface for over three hundred years. This is the largest hurricane in our Solar System.😧
