Best Answer

Jupiter has the most moons, 63.

Exactly? Let's see, what day is this today? As of last count at nineplanets.org, there are 63 moons of Jupiter.

However, more are being discovered every time we send a space probe there, so there may be a dozen or more that haven't been seen yet. For years, the count was "12", based on Earth-bound telescopes, but between the Hubble, the Voyager probes and the recent flyby missions, we have discovered smaller and smaller moons that had been beneath notice.

It seems likely that there are a great many tiny moons of the outer planets that have not yet been catalogued.

Saturn has 60 moons (at last count). Jupiter has 63 moons. There may be planets in other solar systems with more moons, but in our solar system, Saturn has the second most moons.

Is there a pattern of how many moons a planet has?

There is a "pattern" relating to the size of a planet and the number of moons that it has. However, this cannot be used as a basis for determining how many moons a planet will have.Jupiter is the largest planet and has the most moons. Saturn is the second largest and has the second most moons, Uranus is the third largest and has the third most moons. So it looks easy, but fails with the terrestrial planets.Earth is the fifth largest but only has one moon, Venus the sixth largest doesn't have any moons. Whereas Mars has two moons but is the seventh largest.
