Caption: Jupiter, optical image. Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system. It has a diameter of around 140,000 kilometres, more than ten times that of Earth. It is a gas giant and is mostly hydrogen and helium. Its clouds are coloured by trace chemical elements. The Great Red Spot (GRB) is at upper left. The GRB is in Jupiter's southern hemisphere, with North at bottom in this image. This image was obtained on 18 March 2016 at 03:18 UTC (23:18 local time), from Barbados. It was taken with an ASI174 camera with filters.
