Planets that have their own natural satellites are Earth, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune and Mars. Earth's moon is one of the larger natural satellites with a diameter of 2, 160 miles. It is the only moon close enough to us that details of its surface can be seen through a telescope from Earth. The largest moon is Ganymede with a diameter of 3, 280 miles, even larger than either of the planets Mercury and Pluto. Saturn's moon Titan is the second largest in the Solar System with a diameter of 3, 200 miles, half again as large as Earth's Moon.
