Solar System: Things to Know This Week

Jupiter, our solar system’s largest planet, is making a good showing in night skies this month. Look for it in the southeast in each evening. With binoculars, you may be able to see the planet’s four largest moons. Here are some need-to-know facts about the King of the Planets.

1. The Biggest Planet:

With a radius of 43,440.7 miles (69,911 kilometers), Jupiter is 11 times wider than Earth. If Earth were the size of a nickel, Jupiter would be about as big as a basketball.

2. Fifth in Line

Jupiter orbits our sun, and is the fifth planet from the sun at a distance of about 484 million miles (778 million km) or 5.2 Astronomical Units (AU). Earth is one AU from the sun.

3. Short Day / Long Year

One day on Jupiter takes about 10 hours (the time it takes for Jupiter to rotate or spin once). Jupiter makes a complete orbit around the sun (a year in Jovian time) in about 12 Earth years (4,333 Earth days).

4. What’s Inside?

Jupiter is a gas-giant planet without a solid surface. However, the planet may have a solid, inner core about the size of Earth.

5. Atmosphere

Jupiter’s atmosphere is made up mostly of hydrogen (H2) and helium (He).

6. Many Moons

Jupiter has 53 known moons, with an additional 14 moons awaiting confirmation of their discovery — a total of 67 moons.

7. Ringed World

All four giant planets in our solar system have ring systems and Jupiter is no exception. Its faint ring system was discovered in 1979 by the Voyager 1 mission. 

8. Exploring Jupiter:

Many missions have visited Jupiter and its system of moons. The Juno spacecraft is currently orbiting Jupiter.

9. Ingredients for Life?

Jupiter cannot support life as we know it. However, some of Jupiter’s moons have oceans underneath their crusts that might support life.

10. Did You Know?

Jupiter’s Great Red Spot is a gigantic storm (about the size of Earth) that has been raging for hundreds of years.

I've heard 'expansive' be used to describe Jupiter and Sagittarius influence. But what does expansive look like in a personality ? Thank you cherry 💕

BIG!!  The Jupiter auric field is big and the dispensing of qualities is generous. Wherever Jupiter rules can indicate what is large … maybe when we talk about jupiter in the house we should say jupiter in a mansion because everything is more grandiose 


Jupiter in the 3rd, or in Gemini can have large hands or long fingers. Leo can give a long torso or broad shoulders, also long think hair. Jupiter in Pisces or in the twelfth can have big feet, or Aquarius larger calves. Jupiter in Sagittarius can have thick and athletic thighs and Aries or the first house a large head, forehead. Jupiter in Taurus can indicate trouble with weight, also broad shoulders. Virgo can be hard to get slenderness with the stomach, also the forehead can be large. Libra or the seventh house can have large hips. Capricorn can mean the bone structure is larger. Cancer or the fourth house can indicate voluptuous curves, especially breasts. jupiter in scorpio, i will let you imagine that one

i actually have jupiter in the 3rd (gemini’s house) and people have always commented that i have long fingers. i say its good because i can type so swiftly!
