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:

Aegaeon

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).

What is Saturns second largest moon?

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 (MORE)

About Saturns moons?

How many actual moon does Saturn have?

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.

How many unnamed moons does Saturn have?

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 (MORE)

How many moons circle earth?

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

How many miles each moon circle around the earth?

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.

Why don't we know how many moons Saturn has?

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.

How many moons can fit inside Saturn?

(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 (MORE)

How did Saturn come to have so many moons?

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 (MORE)

How long for Saturn to circle the earth?

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.
