Jupiter. Jupiter is a large planet (it is 318 times the mass of our planet, Earth) but it is not big enough to be considered a star. To be a star, Jupiter would need more than 70 times its current mass. This planet is the fastest spinning planet in our solar system (it takes about 10 hours to complete a full rotation on its axis) and it has a strong magentic field (14 times stronger than Earth's).

Mass one-thousandth that of the Sun but is two and a half times the mass of all the other planets in our Solar System combined. Jupiter is classified as a gas giant along with Saturn, Uranus and Neptune.
