If you enjoy using Saturn's Moons and own an Apple device, you might be interested in our mobile app. SaturnMoons guides you to the ringed planet and its bizarre family of satellites, showing you the locations of Saturn's nine largest moons at any date and time. Available on the iTunes App Store for $2.99.
Anyone who looks at Saturn in a telescope will usually notice several pinpoints of light glimmering near the planet. Even a 60-millimeter (2-inch) telescope will show Saturn's brightest moon, Titan, which shines around 8th magnitude and has a thick, smoggy atmosphere that gives it an orange cast. A 15- or 20-centimeter (6- or 8-inch) scope may reveal up to four more satellites close to the planet, all considerably fainter.
But how can you distinguish them from background stars, and how can you tell which moon is which?
