A. Look at the way the original sentence ends ... "the solar system's largest planet". This only make sense if it was modifying Jupiter, not Jupiter mass, or anything else.

A.) astronomers working at telescopes in the Canary Islands and Spain has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated to have 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter(My choice)
B.) astronomers working at telescopes in the Canary Islands and Spain has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated to be 5 to 15 times Jupiter’s mass(Jupiter's mass is not largest planet ,so out)
C.) astronomers is working at telescopes in the Canary Islands and Spain, having detected at least 18 huge gas sphere that are estimated at 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter(estimated at is wrong ,also awkward construction)
D.) astronomers, working at telescopes in the Canary Islands and Spain, and has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres estimated at 5 to 15 times the mass of Jupiter(remove coloured portion and error will be evident)
E.) astronomers, working at telescopes in the Canary Islands and Spain, has detected at least 18 huge gas spheres they have estimated to be 5 to 15 times Jupiter’s mass(Jupiter's mass is not largest planet ,so out)
