What color is Jupiter?


Jupiter has a multicolored surface in neutral tones such as white and brown as well as shades of orange and red. Because Jupiter is made of gas and has a thick atmosphere with clouds and storms, it has a striped, somewhat swirled appearance, and the planet's colors are occasionally blended.

In addition to prominent bands of white, Jupiter has muted shades of browns, oranges, and grays. One of Jupiter's most recognizable physical features is an aptly named Great Red Spot, which is actually a huge storm system that perpetually rages on the gas giant's surface. According to NASA, the Great Red Spot is at least twice as big as Earth.
