Asked in Planetary Science, The Moon
What planet is the closest in size to your moon?
The smallest planet, Mercury, has a diameter closest to the size of our moon, 1405 km larger than our moons diameter. If we include dwarf planets though, Eris is closest in size, with a mean diameter 1148km smaller than our moon's. The moons mean diameter in km3474Eris' mean diameter in km2326Mercury's mean diameter in km4879

Asked in Dwarf Planet Pluto
How many moons are larger than Pluto?
Pluto's equatorial diameter is 2,274 km. The diameter of Earth's moon is 3,476 km. Jupiter has four moons larger than Pluto:- Ganymede - diameter 5,262 km Callisto - diameter 4,800 km Io - diameter 3,630 km Europa - diameter 3,138 km Saturn has one moon larger than Pluto - Titan - diameter 5,150 km Neptune has one moon larger than Pluto - Triton - diameter 2,700 km Thus, there are seven moons larger than Pluto in our Solar System.

The moon's diameter would fit in the Earth's diameter?
Asked in Planet Jupiter
How big are the moons of Jupiter?
The sizes range from dwarf-planet size down to tiny shepherding moons among the rings. The two largest moons, Ganymede and Callisto, are 5200 and 4800 km in diameter respectively, nearly half the size of Earth. One of the smallest, Mneme, is only 2 km in diameter, and newly discovered moons are likely to be smaller still.
