Saturn currently has 60 known moons. Astronomers are discovering new small moons around Saturn all the time.
New moons are being discovered all the time. Saturn has about 31 moons, and most likely it has more than.
Jupiter and Saturn are very large and massive, their gravitational influence is a lot greater than the inner planets. There were also a lot more bodies to 'catch' further out at their distances. Saturns rings and many smaller moons may have originally come from fewer but larger moons that have broken up over time.
Because to of its moons crash to gether and over time it has ice in it now
Humm, not a simple answer. Earth has one, Mars has 2, Jupiter has 63, Saturn 61, Uranus 27 and Neptune 13. However, new moons are being discovered all the time. I believe in 2005 it was belived that Saturn had 47 moons, now the figure is 61. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saturn%27s_natural_satellites
It depends on what you mean by "main." Saturn has 62 known moons and more are being discovered all the time so that will probably be out of date by the time you read this! But the nine largest moons of Saturn (which were known before the space age) are, in order from Saturn:Mimas, Enceladus, Tethys, Dione, Rhea, Titan, Hyperion, Iapetus, Phoebe.All of these large moons except Hyperion and Phoebe (the smallest of the nine) are large enough for their own gravity to pull them into a round shape, like a planet.You can remember the order of the nine main moons from Saturn with the mnemonic "Met Dr. Thip," where the letters stand for the first letter of each moon, e.g. M=Mimas, e=Enceladus, t=Tethys etc.
Saturn doesn't really have months like we do on Earth. Our month is based on the amount of time it takes the moon to orbit. Saturn has over 60 moons, so they don't really have any one reference to base a month on.
Between 1655 - 1990, the first 18 moons of Saturn were discovered.About 30 were discovered between 2000 and 2005.According to the TIME Almanac 2009, the number presently estimated is "at least 60".
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.
At this time we do not know.
It is now known that there are 23 moons for the planet of Jupiter. For a long time it was believed that there were only 16 moons for this planet.
The total was 146 last time I checked. However there are "provisional moons" that will probably become "official" moons eventually.
The Jovian Planets are Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune. The number mentioned are known moons. New discoveries can happen at any time. Jupiter = 63 Saturn = ~200 observed, 61 with secured orbits of which 52 are named. Uranus = 27 Neptune=13
It has 3: the large moon Charon; and the small moons Nix and Hydra.none. we can never reach it in time before we die.
At this time (mid-2014), 67 moons of Jupiter are confirmed. They are all in orbits around the planet. None are 'on' it.
What do you mean by "Saturn month"? On Earth, a "month" is based upon the time it takes the Moon to orbit the Earth or to go through its phases. Saturn has several large moons; you can look up their periods of revolution around Saturn if you like. Titan is easily Saturn's largest moon You could define a "Saturn month" based on Titan's period of revolution, but there is no such term in general use.
the rotation time for saturn is 48 hours.
That depends on what you consider "near".It's a fact that the moons in the solar system are heavily concentrated in conjunction with theouter planets. Starting at the center of the solar system and working outward: by the timeyou've passed and inventoried the neighborhoods of four planets ... Mercury, Venus, Earth,and Mars ... you've only counted three moons.But then, at the next two planets ... Jupiter and Saturn, you add over 120 more!
about a many days and years...
One moon is generally one moon as the time it takes for the moon to revolve around the sun is 29 or 30 days. Therefore, two moons are approximately two moons.
in our solar system it is Jupiter with about 61 moons although many irregular ones are being spotted all the time.-Mihi
1 year on Saturn ( the time to orbit the Sun) is about 29.5 Earth years.
it depends what time it is because like superman lemons need their hankeis that are German and the monkeys in the wheelchairs cant afford to keep their basins of soot and poo
the best time to see Saturn is in the winter
Many planets have moons, many do not. To list all is considerably time consuming, so you are advised to see the related links for links to and details of planets which (are suspected to) have moons or natural satellites.
