Jupiter.

Holeeee crap.  Jupiter has 67 moons?!  Well, yes.  Jupiter is quite the showoff. THe four largest moons are known as the “Galilean moons”, named after Galileo Galilei, were the first objects discovered in our solar system to directly orbit neither the earth or the sun.  “Very cheeky of those moons to not orbit us,” said the 17th century Catholic Church. (Ok, that’s not a direct quote, but the sentiment is in the right place.)  I believe those 4 moons were excommunicated soon after Galileo’s death.

Here are Jupiter’s four largest moons from left to right: Io, Europa, Ganymede, Callisto. Contrary to popular myth, the fifth largest moon of Jupiter is not Ewan MacGregor.  He’s a star – get it right.
