Caption: Gas giant planets. Artwork of Jupiter (upper right), Saturn (bottom) and Neptune (centre left), three of the four gas giant planets of the Solar System. Jupiter, the fifth planet from the Sun and the largest, has a diameter of about 143,000 kilometres. Saturn (sixth planet, 120,000 kilometres in diameter) has an extensive ring system. Neptune, the eighth planet, has a diameter of about 50,000 kilometres. Uranus is not shown. The gas giants are mostly composed of hydrogen and helium, with colours caused by traces of other elements. Jupiter and Saturn have clouds of ammonia, while Neptune's blue colour is in part due to methane.
