Jupiter and Venus are the reason I wanted to be an astrophysicist all those years ago...
 
This stunning image of Jupiter was taken by Voyager 1

Here you can see the famous Great Red Spot and surrounding cloud patterns that curtain out in incredible detail. The GRS was discovered about 300 years ago, and has the been the source of inspiration every since. The curtaining is especially sharp. 

Jupiter is just about as large in diameter as a gas planet can be. If more material were to be added, it would be compressed by gravity such that the overall radius would increase only slightly.
