Saturn has 20 new moons, and they all need names

new saturn moons

Earth’s singular moon has offered astronomers the opportunity to
study the relationship between planets and the natural satellites
that orbit them. In many ways, Earth’s moon is the perfect
introduction to teach humanity some very basic things about how the
universe works.

There’s no civilization living on the ringed gas giant Saturn,
of course, but if there were, they’d have a whole lot more to see
when gazing skyward thanks to the planet’s huge collection of
moons. Recently believed to be just over 60 in number, a new
research effort reveals that there are actually
20 additional moons
we had never noticed before, bringing the
total to 82.
