Jupiter Pictures; Jupiter, the fifth planet from the sun, is also the largest in our solar system. Its average distance is approximately 480 million miles, which is about five times the distance from Earth to the Sun. Unlike the terrestrial planets, Jupiter is a large ball of gas, tightly condensed. It has no surface, though it may have a core composed of comet-like rock-forming minerals, but the core makes up less than 5 percent of the planet's mass, which is approximately 318 times the mass of Earth. Gravity at the top of the clouds in Jupiter's atmosphere is about 2.5 times Earth's gravity. Enjoy these Jupiter Pictures
