The planetary systems surrounding us are similar in some ways and drastically different in others. When we look up at our moon it feels singular, but, in fact, there are many moons in the solar system, belonging to different planets.
Saturn wins out for the most moons, followed closely by Jupiter.$825 at Brilliant Earth
Saturn has 82 moons. Of those, 53 are confirmed moons, and 29 are provisional, meaning they need to be confirmed by additional observation.
– Mercury – Venus – Mars – Neptune – Saturn – Earth – Uranus – Jupiter
Jupiter has 79 moons. Like Saturn, 53 are confirmed. In contrast though, Jupiter only has 26 additional provisional moons.
Earth has only one moon (as you might have notice if you’ve ever looked upward at night.) Our moon is called just “the moon” because, according to NASA, it was the only moon we knew about for quite awhile.
With nearly 30 moons, the planet of Uranus has the bronze medal for third most moons in the solar system.
Saturn, Jupiter, Uranus, and Neptune all have rings. Saturn’s is the brightest though, and therefore the planet most thought of as "ringed" in the popular imagination.
This sounds like a question straight out of a sci-fi novel. Astoundingly, it has basis in reality. On Uranus, Neptune and Saturn scientists believe there is likely diamond rainfall.
The month of August actually began with a conjunction of Mars and Uranus, the CFA reports, and closer to the middle of the month, Jupiter and the Moon will appear only a finger width’s distance from one another.
