The planet Saturn has 53 named moons, and another nine which are still being studied.[1] Many of the moons are very small: 33 are less than 10 km (6 mi) in diameter and 13 moons are less than 50 km (31 mi).[2] Many of the moons are named after Titans, giants, or minor Greek or Roman gods. Some of Saturn's moons are very large; the moon Titan is bigger than the planet Mercury.
