What seasons does Jupiter have?


Jupiter does not have changing seasons like the Earth, but instead is believed to have a constantly stormy atmosphere. This is partly due to its tilt, which is only 3 degrees. The planet has a very turbulent atmosphere and is believed to have a lot of long-term storms. Its core is even hotter than the sun! This means that certain areas of Jupiter are extremely hot, but there is also a large difference of temperature depending on where you are in its atmosphere.
