Did you know many other planets have their own moons as well?

In fact, some planets have more than one moon. For example, Jupiter has 67 moons, Saturn has 62 moons, Uranus has 27 moons and Neptune has 13 moons. Mercury and Venus have no moons at all.

What is more interesting is that this number keeps on changing. As scientist continue their research and studies on space, they keep finding new information and new facts. For example, some years back we only back knew that Jupiter has 63 moons until scientists found out more as they explored the universe further with new technologies. Pretty amazing, isn’t it?
