    my favourite moons are saturns moon titan which is known for having liquid methane lakes [​IMG]

    my other favourite moon is Jupiters moon Europa which was discovered by Galileo and it is believed that there might be an water ocean underneath its icy crust


    both of these moons interest me because they are believed to be some of the of the few places other than earth that might have life on it. the topic of life on other planets, moons, rocks, and dwarf planets, etc. is one of my favourite things to talk about

    The moon. The ghostly white glow off of its surface is calming.

    The regular moon is fine by me--has inspired more poets than the others.

    Just found out today about Pluto and Charon being both tidally locked to the other, and a volcano(ish thing?) on Pluto actually depositing stuff on Charon, all in one particular spot. Not sure I really have a favourite in this solar system, but having just found that out it seems very cool to me right now.

    In the Kerbol system I rather like Minmus. I've only been to four; of them it's the prettiest, and so easy to jump around on and easy to get to.

    If Ganymede were orbiting the sun instead of Jupiter, it would be a planet. That's pretty cool.

    lo. The most volcanic of all bodies in the solar system. Covered in places by liquid silica. Volcanoes can be seen from Earth by some telescopes.

    Io is a deadly cheeseball.

    Also, what planet is it going around?

    BTW, Pluto is in one of the gas giant's orbits right now, making it both a dwarf planet and a moon.

    Is it bad that I only recognize Titan because it is one of the many locations in Destiny 2?

    Our moon, because it (probably) helped life to develop on our planet.

    I think the Death Star orbiting Saturn is worthy of mention.
