SUMMARY: Astronomers from the University of Hawaii have discovered six new moons for Jupiter, pushing the planet's satellite count to 58 - the largest group of moons in the Solar System. These aren't terribly big moons, though, only a kilometer or so across. The moons were discovered as part of an ongoing search using the world's largest digital cameras at the Subaru and Canada-France-Hawaii telescopes atop Mauna Kea.
