- Jupiter's equatorial radius: There's Jupiter's radius, and then on the next line is 11.209 Earths. I stumbled on this, and then realized that what is meant is 11.209 Earth equatorial radii. Without specifying a unit, it seems the natural thing is to think that 11.209 'Earths' (the planet) would fit in this distance, which would imply the diameter. Other options might be 11.209 times that of Earth, or 11.209 Earth's, or simply delete the statistic and let the reader do the calculation. Or is this a convention of some sort?
- Similarly for the polar radius.
- I don't have the same problem for the surface area, volume, or mass, because in each case the entirety is described.Mvsmith (talk) 06:23, 12 November 2017 (UTC)
Update needed on cloud layer depth
This article currently states: "'The cloud layer is only about 50 km (31 mi) deep"
But new data from Juno reveals that the cloud layer is 3,000 kilometers deep: . Cheers, BatteryIncluded (talk) 01:43, 11 April 2018 (UTC)
Sometimes things just "creep in" so could someone look at the "External links" section for possible article integration or trimming. There are currently 12 links that certainly can be considered link farming. Otr500 (talk) 14:18, 25 July 2018 (UTC)

Scientists can't rule out life on the planet after the discovery of water clouds in Jupiter's Great Red Spot https://thespacereporter.com/article.php?n=scientists-say-they-cant-rule-out-alien-life-on-jupiter-after-new-discovery&id=165037 Ainger13 (talk) 12:47, 3 September 2018 (UTC)
Updated magnitude range
The new values of brightest and faintest apparent magnitude in the 'infobox' were reported in a peer-reviewed journal article that includes updated equations for computing planetary magnitudes. Those formulas will be used to predict magnitudes for future issues of The Astronomical Almanac published by the U.S. Naval Observatory and Her Majesty’s Nautical Almanac Office. The equations were solved at daily intervals over long periods of time in order to determine the magnitude extremes.

do I need to update File:Jupiter diagram.svg?
I recently read some news articles that said scientific models for Jupiter’s interior have been revised a lot recently, and given that I drew the image five years ago before the Juno probe ever got to Jupiter, I was wondering if it needs to be updated to reflect new knowledge about the planet. I’m also aware quite a few people raised objections about the accuracy of the image in the years since I uploaded it. However the article text Jupiter#Internal structure does not seem to have been updated much since 2016 and it’s pretty vague about exactly what the inside of the planet looks like anyway so I could really use some direction on what would need to go into a 2019-updated Jupiter image. —kelvin13 talk 21:39, 8 January 2019 (UTC)
