The Astronomy and Space Sciences Department at Kuwait Science Club (KSC) captured a rare photo of the planet Jupiter, released in a statement on Tuesday. Head of the Astronomy and Space Sciences Department at Kuwait Science Club Bader Al-Amirah said that the rare photo of the huge planet showed Jupiter's most famous feature, a giant spinning storm called the Great Red Spot.

Al-Amirah said that Jupiter was a giant gas planet, and its atmosphere was made up of mostly hydrogen and helium, just like the sun. He added that Jupiter is the fifth planet from the sun and it is about 1,400 times larger in volume than the Earth, and its interior is made of rocks and metallic hydrogen.
