Jupiter has 79 confirmed moon's orbiting around it, which is the largest number of any planet in our Solar System. Twelve of these moons were only confirmed in 2018 by the NASA Juno Spacecraft. The four largest moons are known collectively as the Galilean Moon's as they were discovered by Galileo in the year 1610.
Jupiter also has a ring around it, but it is much less spectacular than the rings of Saturn, and very faint.
