Caption: Animation showing the formation of the planet Jupiter from the gas and dust surrounding the young Sun. The Sun formed from the collapse of a huge cloud of gas and dust, some 4.57 billion years ago. The material left over from this formed a huge protoplanetary disc around the new Sun, which eventually coalesced into the planets.
