Friday’s Factoid Week 16

Jupiter (by Gideon, 5)

Jupiter has 50 or maybe 67 moons. It also has a huge storm called The Great Red Spot. The spot is even bigger than the whole Earth (by Sam, 9).

The smallest moon that Jupiter has is called Amalthea. It is the reddest object in the solar system. It looks like a big red blob and is just made of a bunch of space rocks stuck together with gaps between them. They may be leftover from The Exploded Planet (by Nathan, 11).

Recently the Galileo space craft discovered rings around Jupiter. We can not see them through a telescope because they are too thin. Jupiter is also rotating really fast. It only takes 10 hours which is why it is so stormy. (by Joel, 13).
