alot here for you...
Jupiter and Saturn :
The following star-like characteristics attest to the fact that both Jupiter and Saturn are small stellar objects, with Saturn being much more active than Jupiter. This is a result of ongoing fusion triggered by energetic lightning bolts in their atmospheres. Rings: All three have stable flat rings . The Sun has at least four such and its zodiacal disk; Jupiter has only one thin ring, whereas Saturn exhibits an extensive ring system with energetic electrical discharges between the rings and from the rings to the planet (observed as aurora belts).
Interplanetary electrical discharges:
the Io to Jupiter current sheet of 5 million amps has been detected; Dione of Saturn (as well as Saturn's rings) maintains a similar discharge, and comets which approach the Sun within the zodical disk form visible sunward electrical discharges (the sunward spike). Energetic particles: Surrounding Saturn is a plasma with particle energies higher than those found in the interior of the Sun. No known mechanism other than fusion could produce particles with such energies. Differential rotation: Saturn's and Jupiter's high velocity equitorial wind belts correspond to the differential rotation observed in the Suns atmosphere, the wind speeds in Saturn being over three times those observed at Jupiter. High temperatures: Pioneer-Saturn measured the temperatures in Saturn's ionosphere to be 1250degreesK. "This high temperature requires an extensive energy source other than the Sun. This phenomena was also observed at Jupiter." (Quote from 1990 NASA news release Science Hightights.) See also M. Shimizu's paper in The Moon and the Planets, 22 (June, 1980). Exothermic radiation: Both Jupiter and Saturn appear very bright at certain wavelengths, radiating two to three times the energy they receive from the Sun. Saturn emits more excess radiation for its size than Jupiter. Atmospheric conditions and lightning: The atmospheric circulation patterns of stalls objects are similar, with the violent storms producing energetic lightning bolts detectable as radio noise. The lightning bolts in Satum's rings and in the atmospheres of Jupiter and Saturn are estimated to be millions of times more powerful than lightning bolts on Earth.
