Jupiter is more like a small sun than a big planet. It has a small rocky core but is made mostly of hydrogen and helium and it makes it’s own heat just like the sun. Jupiter has more than 60 moons and some of them are bigger than small planets. We have seen some of them through our telescope. My favorite is Callistso (Titus, 9).
There is a Great Red Spot on Jupiter that is a giant storm. It is twice a big as the whole Earth and has been there over 300 years. All the stripes on Jupiter are made of more storm clouds and these storms make the scariest lightning in the universe. I think. (Joel, 7).

Fridays continue to be a ‘favorite day’ because of the new things I am learning from you, Titus and Joel (thanks to your mom)!!!
This is what happened at our school on Friday. Do NOT try this at home, boys! 😉
Ha! Are you kidding? That’s exactly the kind of thing they’d like to try at home! 🙂
