"Twenty new moons have been found around Saturn, giving the ringed planet a total of 82, scientists said Monday, October 7. That beats Jupiter and its 79 moons.
"It was fun to find that Saturn is the true moon king," said astronomer Scott Sheppard. He works for the Carnegie Institution for Science.
If it's any consolation to the Jupiter crowd, our solar system's biggest planet — Jupiter — still has the biggest moon. Jupiter's Ganymede is almost half the size of Earth. By contrast, Saturn's 20 new moons are minuscule. Each of them is barely 3 miles (5 kilometers) in diameter.
Sheppard and his team used a telescope in Hawaii to spot Saturn's 20 new moons over the summer. About 100 even tinier moons may be orbiting Saturn, still waiting to be found, he said."
