Obviously it is only 1 kilometer wide, which means that it is the smallest moon that scientists have yet discovered, and orbits the planet Jupiter.
Two Years Later January 2016 Caltech's Konstantin Batygin and Mike Brown, who have discovered what Sheppard and Trujillo have found, announced that they have indeed found evidence of such a giant planet orbiting in a strange and long-drawn orbit A number of terrestrial telescopes in Chile and the US were used to discover the new Jupiter moons. As you may imagine, this is far more than any other planet in our solar system. It has a diameter of 5,268 km. According to the scientist, the problem is that this moon is the only one in its area that turns in the opposite direction to other moons. When they searched for distant objects or even planets outside of Pluto, they had also decided to look at the celestial bodies revolving around Jupiter.
What does the research team say?
"Our other discovery is a true oddball and has an orbit like no other known Jupiter's moon". In which they described ten last Tuesday. According to reports and findings of astronomers, there was recently an additional lunar orbit on the planet. As the team noted in its announcement, "solving the complexities that shaped the orbital history of a moon can teach scientists about the early years of our solar system." This was completed after several orbits around Jupiter were seen by the Astronomical Union in DC. So we think that they are between rocky asteroids and icy comets. "So they are probably half ice and half rock."
"It's really exciting to be part of a team where we not only search for an undiscovered planet in our solar system, but are also able to search for exciting things like new Jupiter moons," said Trujillo. This satellite rotates in the same general way as all retrograde satellites, but in the opposite direction.
The University says that the moons are so weak that they are not all visible in a single photograph, only when several images are combined] According to Sheppard, Jupiter and Saturn can have the same number of moons around them. There could be many unknown little moons around Saturn.
