Once again, sorry! I think it said that Saturn has 82 moons, not 84.

Once again, sorry. I meant to say that Ganymede is larger than Mercury, certainly not Jupiter! Jupiter's the largest planet in the Solar System, although it's small compared to the sun.

Sorry, I didn't mean to have it published twice!

I've just got seven out of ten in this quiz - slightly over average! Anyway, thanks for letting me test my knowledge. I wasn't sure whether Saturn or Jupiter has the most moons in the Solar System; I know Jupiter's Ganymede is the Solar System's largest moon, even larger than Jupiter. I thought Saturn had 62 moons, 53 of which were named. So now it has 84; there must have been more discoveries.
Mercury and Venus are the only two planets with no moons. However, I've read that for a period of 220 years (1672 till 1892) Venus was thought to have its own moon. I think it was Cassini that detected a small object near Venus. Over the next 200 years several observations were made; some believed it was a moon, others didn't. I think it was suggested that it was even another planet! Anyway, I don't think there's been anything on this subject for years, probably over a century. Of course Pluto was once classed as a planet until it was "demoted" in 2006. I believe there's a lot of controversy over this.
Anyway, I enjoy these quizzes; I like to keep testing my knowledge of astronomy from time to time!
