Website '203 Planet Moons' covering '203 satellites' in the solar system



Celestial bodies that revolve around such as planets and dwarf planets are satellite is referred to as, the most famous satellite Earth revolves around the month there is. The planets of the solar system and the planets are said to have 203 satellites at the time of writing, and the website ' 203 Planet Moons ' covering all the satellites in the solar system is released.

The 203 Moons of all the Planets

203 When you open Planet Moons, you will see the number of moons present on major planets and paraplanets. 'Mercury (closer to the Sun than the Earth Mercury )' and 'Venus ( Venus does not have a satellite in)', that of the Venus is likely to have had a satellite in the distant past.

Satellite of 'Earth (Earth)' is a month, representing the brightness of celestial objects

grade is -12.9. There are several other quasi-satellites . A quasi-satellite is an object that looks like a satellite orbiting the planet when observed from a planet, but is not actually a satellite. The most stable quasi-satellite of the Earth, 2016 HO3 , looks like a satellite at first glance, as it revolves around the sun instead of the Earth in almost the same cycle as the Earth. In addition, 'Mars ( Mars is in),' Deimos and Phobos has two satellites that, larger in the Phobos than Deimos, grade Deimos is 12.4, Phobos is 11.3. All can be observed with a 4-inch (about 10 cm) telescope.

I was able to know more detailed information.

There are no satellites in the quasi-planet 'Ceres Keres ' located in the asteroid belt that exists between Mars and Jupiter. On the other hand, as many as 79 satellites have been found in 'Jupiter ( Jupiter )', and Ganymede (class 4.61), Callisto (class 5.65), Io (class 5.02), Europa (class 5.29), etc. are famous. Some satellites do not have a spherical shape because of their small gravity, but Jupiter has a spherical shape because these four satellites have a large mass.

The non-spherical satellites on Jupiter are well described by 203 Planet Moons.

In some cases, the image itself does not exist.

Although there are 62 satellites in “

Saturn ” and it is described in the 203 Planet Moons, there are many uncertainties regarding Saturn's satellites, and 65 satellites with 3 more than 62 are There is also a theory that you have. Next to Jupiter's satellite Ganymede, the satellites of the largest solar system, Titan (grade 8.28), the 9th largest among the satellites, the rare (grade 9.7), Iapetus (grades 10-12 ), There are 7 satellites up to Mimas, with the Dione '(grade 10.4),' Thetis '(grade 10.2),' Enceladus '(grade 11.7),' Mimas '(grade 12.9) etc.

There are 27 satellites in '

Uranus ', ' Titania ' (class 13.7), ' Oberon ' (class 13.9), ' Umbriel ' (class 14.8), ' Ariel ' (class 14.16), ' Miranda ' 'It is said that it may be called Uranus' 5 great satellite.

There are 14 satellites of '

Neptune '. The Neptune's largest satellite, Triton , is believed to have been captured from the Edgeworth Kuiper Belt in a densely populated area outside of Neptune's orbit and become Neptune's satellite.

Five satellites have been found in Pluto (

pluto ), which was considered to be a planet until 2006, but was made a planet until 2006. First discovered as a satellite of Pluto in 1978, ' Caron ' (class 16.8) has a mass of one-seventh of Pluto, and the relationship between Pluto and Karon is often described as a double celestial body And.

'Orcus (of new celestial body that was discovered in 2004

Orcus )' is a celestial body that has the potential to be classified in the future to dwarf planet, ' Vance has one satellite named'. In addition, 'Haumea (the dwarf planet Haumea in)' is, ' Hiiaka ', ' biochemical two satellites that' has been confirmed.

Future could be classified as quasi-planet 'Quaoar (

50000 Quaoar in)' ' Way Wotto exist satellite named', ' Makemake the quasi planet', ' S / 2015 (136472) 1 Satellite was discovered in 2016.

In addition, the largest quasi-planet candidate '

2007 OR10 ' at the time of the article creation as an unnamed astronomical object, the existence of satellites has been confirmed from the observation of the Hubble Space Telescope in May 2017, and Eris ( Ellis is in), '' Dysnomia exists satellite named '.

Celestial 'Salacia (that is that there is a high possibility of the dwarf planet

120347 Salacia to)' is, ' Akutaea Yes satellite that' has been confirmed.
