How many moons circle Saturn?
There are 18 moons that orbit Saturn and these are called :
Pan, Atlas, Pandora, Prometheus, Epimetheus , Janus, Mimus, Enceladus, telesto, Helene, Calypso, Tethys, Dione, Rhea, Titan, Hyperion, Iapetus and Phoebe
The names are all part of the roman memory so it's said...
There are countless pieces (of varying materials, sizes, densities, masses, and life expectancies) orbiting Saturn. What is lacking is consensus on a clear definition of the term, moon.
Saturn has 67 moons with confirmed orbits, as of March 2011.Twenty-four of them are regular satellites and thirty-seven have been confirmed as irregular satellites. 53 have been named and 9 are provisional. These are as follows:
S/2004 S 7
S/2004 S 12
S/2004 S 13
S/2004 S 17
S/2006 S 1
S/2006 S 3
S/2007 S 2
S/2007 S 3
no, Saturn has 47 moons.
Technically, thousands upon thousands since each rock making up its rings is a satellite; to date 60 major satellites are known (but this number will surely rise).
Saturn has 62 moons. Saturn has 62 moons.
Saturn has 62 moons.
No. Saturn has 62 moons.
Saturn has 62 known moons.
Sorry if I sound rude but don't take it personally, I preffer it when people finish their sentances, anyway, Saturn has 62 moons.

Saturn has quite a few moons since it is a large planet with a lot of mass, and is in an area of space where there are more objects for the planet to 'catch' as moon.
Jupiter has 63 known natural satellites (with a 64th and more possible as of 2008). Saturn has 60 or more, Uranus 27 or more, Neptune 13 currently known, and Pluto has three confirmed moons (the largest, Charon, is nearly the same size as Pluto).

About 50 to 60 moons known to us. (MORE)
There are a total of 62 moons that belong to Saturn. Only 53 ofthem have names. Among them are Titan, Hyperion, Mimas, Atlas, Pan,Pandora, Janus, Anthe, Calypso, Helene, and Phoebe.
moons or moonlets. (I've put moon in lower case to differentiate with our Moon which is always in upper case)
they actually arnt that cold the are quiet hot loll this answer is so rang ask Ur teacher
http://saturn.jpl.nasa.gov/science/moons/ here is written that only 53 moons from the discovered 62 moons are named...
The largest moon of Saturn is named Titan, after the mythologicalTitans. It was discovered in 1655 by Christian Huygens.
Rhea is the second largest moon of Saturn, behind Titan, and the largest without an atmosphere. It is composed mostly of water ice, but has a small rocky core. Rhea's rotation and orbit are locked together (just like Earth's Moon) so that one side always faces Saturn. A consequence of this is that o…ne side always leads the other. Rhea's leading surface is much more heavily cratered than its trailing surface. The above photograph was taken with the Voyager 1 spacecraft in 1980. NASA's Cassini spacecraft is currently on route to Saturn and will arrive in 2004 (MORE)
Saturn goes around the sun once every Saturn Year, and that is only once every 29.46 Earth Years.

Saturn has 60 known moons that have been discovered and verified so far. See the Related Link.. Saturn has 62 known moons.
The planet Saturn has 62 moons. 53 of these moons have an actualorbit. The largest of these moons is Titan.
Saturn has 31 to 62 moons. It also has four main groups of ringsand three fainter groups.
62 moons orbit Saturn, 67 orbit Jupiter, 5 orbit Pluto, 14 orbitNeptune, and 27 orbit Uranus.
Saturn has a total of 60 moons, many of which were only discovered in the last few years - 52 of them have received official names..
There are a total of 53 moons that orbit the planet Saturn.Saturn's moons were first discovered by Christian Huygens in 1655.
Earth takes 365 days (1 year) to revolve around Sun. Moon takes 29.5 days (1 Month) to revolve around Earth. So Moon would complete approx. 12 revolutions (that's why we have 12 months) in 1 Year
it depends what time it is because like superman lemons need their hankeis that are German and the monkeys in the wheelchairs cant afford to keep their basins of soot and poo
Saturn has been orbiting the Sun continually for the past 5 billion years or so. It takes about 29.4 years to do so, so it has done it about 200 million times.
Jupiter and Saturn are the most massive planets in the solar system and so have the greatest gravitational effect.
Saturn currently has 60 known moons. Astronomers are discovering new small moons around Saturn all the time.
On the average, 365.23 days, same as the earth. If it were not the same as the earth, then over a period of just a few years, the moon would recede noticeably from the earth, either out ahead of us or falling behind us.
Current count is in the low sixties. There's a couple that are suspected but not yet confirmed (they might just be clumps of dust in the rings) so it's hard to be certain.
Of Saturn's 62 established moons, nine provisional moons have only index designations and remain otherwise unnamed. However, there are countless numbers of space debris in orbit around Saturn that are not designated as moons . None of these have been named, nor are they likley to be. Provisional… Moons of Saturn: . S/2004 S 7 S/2004 S 12 S/2004 S 13 S/2004 S 17 S/2006 S 1 S/2006 S 3 S/2007 S 2 S/2007 S 3 S/2009/S 1. (MORE)

Saturn's largest moon is Titan. It is the second largest in thesolar system. Saturn's smallest moon is Mimas.

The planet Earth has precisely one natural satellite, the moon, also known as luna. It also has numerous artificial satellites that human beings have placed into orbit. None of them qualify as moons. only one
If you are asking how far the Moon is from the Earth, the easy answer is about 250,000 miles or 400,000 kilometers. If you want to know how long is the orbit of the Moon (the length of its journey around the Earth each month) then the answer is roughly 1,570,000 miles or 2,528,000 kilometers.
Jupiter has 66 moons, Saturn has 63, Uranus has 27, and Neptune has 13. This works out to a total of 169 moons.
Saturn has around 60 identified moons, but we don't know for sure if there are more to yet be discovered. Defining a moon is also tricky, since there are large boulders in the ring system. Are these moons? There is no clear definition of when a moon is a moon, or just a large rock.
these circles on the moon are call craters and they are smash byasteroids from space very long time ago

(This answer assumes that a moon is a moon the size of Earth's moon) . The volume of Saturn is 37000 times bigger than the moon, so Saturn has enough space for 37000 moons if there were no space between the moons. . If both Saturn and the moons are assumed to be perfect spheres (which they aren't …quite), then about 22600 moons would fit inside Saturn, since there is no way to put all the moons inside Saturn without there being space in between them..

Saturn has over 60 confirmed moons, there may well be even more than this still to be discovered.
Saturn and Jupiter have alot of moons around them because they are such big planets that they need counter gravity to pull against them so they stay in orbit.
Jupiter and Saturn are very large and massive, their gravitational influence is a lot greater than the inner planets. There were also a lot more bodies to 'catch' further out at their distances. Saturns rings and many smaller moons may have originally come from fewer but larger moons that have broke…n up over time. (MORE)
They are as follows (in order of large to small): . Titan . Rhea . Iapetus . Dione . Tethys . Enceladus . Mimas
Saturn does not circle the earth. It orbits the sun. Copernicus demonstrated this mathematically in the 17th century. It takes about 29 earth years for Saturn to complete one orbit of the sun.
Because they are so large, they have a large amount of gravity. As the Solar System was forming, they collected lots of dust clouds and all. Then, moons formed.
Saturn has 30 moons, 12 of which are unnamed. The named ones are Pan, Atlas, Prometheus, Pandora, Epimetheus, Jana, Mimas, Enceladus, Tethys, Telesto, Calypso, Dione, Helene, Rhia, Titan, Hyperion, Iapetus, and Pheobe.
ON, no. IN ... there are several moons that are embedded within the ring system.
Jupiter has A LOT of moons. Although, most of them are captured asteroids. Anyways, moons do circle the 8 main planets.
Saturn has 62 moons in orbit, 53 of which have names. It also has more than 30 rings!! See the related link(s) listed below or more information:
Saturn has about 61 moons discovered to date, but there will probably more to be discovered
it takes it ten earth years i think but if you are in 3rd grade then you should be learning about the planets by now
Saturn does not have its own sun and it has 60 moons and some were just discovered a few years ago
The moon does not circle the sun directly, it circles the earth. soit would be approximately the same as how long the earth takes,about 365 days.
