Jupiter (or Sol V) was the fifth and largest planet of the Sol system. It had many moons, including Ganymede, and was located close to the asteroid belt. (TOS: "The Changeling", "By Any Other Name"; Star Trek: The Motion Picture)
A close-up image of Jupiter was contained in the library computer aboard the USS Enterprise. This data was flashed on a viewscreen when the Talosians scanned the Enterprise computer in 2254. (TOS: "The Cage" remastered)
In 2143, the NX-Alpha was destroyed near Jupiter shortly after breaking the warp 2 barrier. By 2151, Jupiter Station in orbit of Jupiter served as a repair facility to Earth Starfleet and the Earth Cargo Service. (ENT: "Silent Enemy", "Fortunate Son", "First Flight", et al.)

Behind the scenes
A painting seen in several episodes aboard the USS Enterprise-D was originally created by Rick Sternbach to illustrate a (non-Trek) science fiction story called "The Anvil of Jove". As such, it depicts a plane-like craft tethered to a balloon, cruising the atmosphere of Jupiter. 
By the time of its 2272 appearance in Star Trek: The Motion Picture, the Great Red Spot, usually considered to be a temporal (though centuries old) feature, still seems to exist and look very similar to how it looks now.
