"There are four planets in the Solar System, and some rocky debris." Graphic showing the relative surface areas of solid bodies or uppermost cloud deck (for gas giants and ice giants). Jupiter dominates the surface area of the solar system. The ice giants make up a small component of the overall solar system surface area. The small tiny blue area and with the brown square in the lower left of the graphic represents the sum of Earth's surface. Image copyright: Mike Malaska 2010.
