Jupiter
By Cindy Grigg
  

1     Jupiter is the fifth planet from the sun. It is 483 million miles from the sun. That's more than five times Earth's distance from the sun. Jupiter, the largest planet, was named after the king of the Roman gods. It is larger across than eleven Earths! Jupiter has at least 27 moons. One of Jupiter's moons is larger than the planet Mercury!
 
2     Jupiter is covered by thick clouds. It is freezing cold at the top of the clouds. It is boiling hot at the center of Jupiter. There is a great red spot that is a giant storm. It's like a hurricane on Earth, but it is much larger: as big as two Earths! It has been going on for more than 400 years. The great red spot has been seen since people began looking at Jupiter with telescopes in the early 1600s. Jupiter has rings like Saturn's but much smaller and fainter. Jupiter's dark rings are probably made of dust and small pieces of rock. They are not like Saturn's bright rings which are mostly ice.
