A dozen small moons have been discovered orbiting Saturn, bringing that planet's total known count to 46.
The discoveries were made with Japan's Subaru telescope in Hawaii in an ongoing project led by David Jewitt at the University of Hawaii.
The new moons are only 2-4 miles wide and were discovered around December but have only been announced this week. The moons have been assigned the names S/2004-S7 through S/2004-S18 and as soon as they are "confirmed" they should receive regular names like Saturn's other moons.
