Caption: Image comparing the size of Earth (left) with the planet Jupiter. Jupiter is the fifth planet from the Sun, with an average distance from it of 5.2 times the Earth-Sun distance. Being a fluid world of mostly hydrogen and helium, astronomers label it (along with Saturn) a gas giant. With a diameter of 11.2 times that of the Earth, Jupiter is the Solar System's second largest planet.
