How big the planet of Jupiter?
Jupiter is the largest of the planets, not only in solid terms but also as seen from Earth in a telescope (not counting the crescent phases of Venus).
Nearby Jupiter are its four biggest moons (famous as the major satellites of Gallilean: Io, Europa, Ganymede, Callisto), looking like bright points of light. They are, in fact, as bright as fifth magnitude stars.
These moons take only a few days to orbit Jupiter, and so their positions are constantly changing.
Jupiter represent biggest planet in our solar system, but how big?
this picture ilustration maybe can explain more accurately, the size between Jupiter and other planet in our solar system.
the size of Jupiter measure much the same to with planet of Saturnus, and in comparison with Earth size measure hence will seen difference which is very strike.
this picture ilustration is comparison between Jupiter with our Sun.
Jupiter is easy to see with small telescope even with binoculars.
in my personal experience, i can see the Jupiter with their major satellites only with my binoculars (the specification is 12×50).
not all type binocular suitable to observe the Jupiter, i suggest to use the binoculars with minimum magnification 12x.
