Galileo observed the rings of Saturn in 1610, but his telescope was too crude for him to see that they were rings -- he thus presumed they were large moons. In 1612 he looked at Saturn again, but did not see these "moons" (the rings were edge on, and thus not visible with his telescope) -- which confused him greatly. When Galileo looked again in 1614, he saw these "moons" a second time -- and thus concluded they were some kind of arms.
