There are 79 moons orbiting Jupiter (for now)

Illustration for article titled There are 79 moons orbiting Jupiter (for now)

Gas giant Jupiter has 79 known moons in orbit. An additional 12 have been added to the previous tally. One of the new moons, Valetudo, a kilometer, in size has an orbit that will eventually bring it into collision with retrograde outer moons. No time soon though - but any space crash will be visible from Earth.
