Jupiter is the largest planet in the Sol system. It is an ammonia cloud gas giant with numerous moons, the most notable of which are Ganymede, Callisto, Europa and Io. Named after the principle Roman god, it is the first of the Jovian planets.

Characteristics Edit

Jupiter is known for its Great Red Spot, a storm as large as Gaea that has been raging for centuries.

Life Edit

Jupiter is also believed to have primordial, organic life in its atmosphere, though this remains unconfirmed. If any native life is present in Jupiter's atmosphere, it resides too close to the giant's core to be observed or detected by modern equipment.
