Jupiter is not only the largest planet of Solar System but it has another distinction attached with it i.e. planet with maximum number of moons. It has minimum 63 moons. Some of them are even bigger than small planets of Solar system.

Jupiter - The planet Jupiter has 66 moons. 46 of these are less than 3km wide.The four biggest moons are called the Galilean moons because they were discovered by the famous Italian astronomer Galileo Galilei. They are roughly the same size as Earth's moon, some are a bit bigger, some are smaller.
