Uranian Moons Aplenty
October 10, 2003 | Planetary moon hunters have found a new trove of objects orbiting Uranus. In the past month, astronomers have confirmed five new moons around the distant gas giant. The members of the quintet are all rather small each around 10 kilometers across. With these additions, Uranus now sports 27 moons total, ranking it behind Jupiter and Saturn at third place.
