Jupiter

Jupiter is the largest planet in the solar system. It has 67 moons which orbit around it. The spot in the lower left is the Great Red Spot, a giant high-pressure storm that has existed since at least the century.

Jupiter Moons - Callisto discovered by Galileo Galilei in 1610 using a telescope. It is thought to have oceans of liquid water beneath its crust. about the size of Mercury, is the 3rd largest moon in the solar system. It is more heavily cratered than any other moon in the solar system. Callisto remains as it was when it formed, during the period of intense meteoroid bombardment that the entire solar system experienced

Voyager 2 is still the only spacecraft to have visited the outer planets Uranus and Neptune.  Here is Uranus as seen by Voyager 2 in 1986.  ...

In when Voyager 2 passed by the first "ice giant" on its way out to the unknown, it looked like nothing more than a featureless blue-green sphere.

Venus

Taurus Key Planet: Venus The second closest planet to the earth, Venus, is the planet of love and desire.

The color of Neptune is a bright azure blue. During its flyby in 1989, NASA’s Voyager 2 revealed the bright blue color, different from the pale blue color of Uranus. So why does Neptune have this color?  The answer to Neptune’s color comes from its cloud tops. The upper atmosphere of Neptune is made up of 80% hydrogen,19% helium with a trace 1% amount of methane and other ices, like ammonia and water. Methane absorbs light at 600 nm, which is the red end of the spectrum of visible light.

Kepler-186f ~ The first known Earth-size planet to lie within the habitable zone of a star beyond the Sun. Discovered using data from the prolific planet-hunting Kepler spacecraft, the distant world orbits its parent star, a cool, dim, M dwarf star about half the size and mass of the Sun, some 500 light-years away from us, in the constellation Cygnus. While the size and orbit of Kepler-186f are known, its mass and composition are not, and can't be determined by Kepler's transit technique…
