Saturn

Saturn has around 63 moons and 53 of them have names. Most of the moons are quite small and only 13 have a diameter of more than 50 kilometres. Mimas is one of the larger moons. It is 400 kilometres across and has a huge crater on its surface. You can see the crater in the photo below. This is the moon that Kimi visited when he was small on his father's freighter.
