Our solar system contains a menagerie of moons. But how many are actually out there? While Earth has its own familiar natural satellite, our nearest neighbor, Mars, has two. Pluto, a dwarf planet, has five confirmed moons. Neptune has 14 moons, while Uranus has 27. Jupiter has an impressive 53 confirmed moons orbiting its colossal body, the same number as Saturn. Venus and Mercury, meanwhile, are devoid of any such natural satellites. But in fact, there are hundreds of moons in our solar system, in many shapes, sizes, and types. And some truly stand out for their amazing landscapes, orbits, and environments.
