  1. Jupiter is the largest planet in our galaxy. It is more than eleven times larger than the earth and 318 times heavier. As per Wikipedia ” Jupiter is the fifth planet from the Sun and the largest in the Solar System. It is a giant planet with a mass one-thousandth that of the Sun, but two and a half times that of all the other planets in the Solar System combined. Jupiter is a gas giant, along with Saturn. (Uranus and Neptune are ice giants.) Jupiter was known to astronomers of ancient times. The Romans named it after their god Jupiter. When viewed from Earth, Jupiter can reach an apparent magnitude of ˆ’2.94, bright enough for its reflected light to cast shadows,and making it on average the third-brightest object in the night sky after the Moon and Venus. “
