Jupiter, a gas giant.

Gas giants are planets composed primarily of fluid (liquid or gaseous) material though there may be a rocky core.

There are four gas giants in Solar System (Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune), and we know of over a hundred other gas giants orbiting other stars. Gas Giants that are close to their parent stars are known as hot jupiters while ones with eccentric orbits are called eccentric jupiters.
