Jupiter

http://nineplanets.org/jupiter.html

Some new things I learned from this site is that Jupiter has 63 known satellites and most of them haven't been named. They probably have a series of numbers ascribed to them. I also learned that Jupiter's ring has no ice in its composition, unlike Saturn. Also, the ring is better seen using infra-red imaging when seeing the ring from the ground on Earth.

Below is a link to some images of Jupiter via Google. Thanks Google!

It has some thorough images of the Red Spot, the Ring, the planet Jupiter itself, some of the moons, and some artistic renditions of Jupiter.
