Surprise! Jupiter officially has 92 moons, as 12 new moons discovered

Posted by in category: space

Some of the moons hadn’t been spotted yet because they are tiny, measuring less than 1 mile in diameter.

Astronomers discovered 12 new moons orbiting Jupiter, meaning the total number of moons we know to be orbiting the gas giant now stands at 92.

Up until the new discovery, Saturn, with its 83 confirmed moons, was thought to be the planet with the most moons.
