Jupiter

Jupiter has 67 confirmed moons, as of  August 2013, of which fifty have been named.  Only eleven of Jupiter's moons are more than 50 km in diameter, and 37 are less than 10 km across; some very small moons.  Apart from the four Galilean moons, they fall into one of a number of groups of related satellites; these appear on the menu above.  Alternatively, select an individual moon from the alphabetical list of the fifty named moons below.
