About Exomoons

  • Exomoons are regarded as those naturally occurring satellites that orbit exoplanets.
  • Exomoons around any of these planets, though, are still untraceable.
  • Exo-moon signals are too feeble due to their small sizes.
  • Origin: The solar system is made up of multiple naturally occurring satellites of various masses and sizes.
  • A few of these satellites have an impact on the solar planet's surrounding environment.
  • Because of this, a sizable number of exomoons are anticipated, which may also have a significant impact on the habitability of rocky exoplanets in a star's habitable zone.


  • Any planet outside of our solar system—that is, planets that revolve around stars other than the sun—is referred to as an exoplanet.
  • The majority of exoplanets orbit other stars, while rogue planets—free-floating exoplanets that are unattached to any star—orbit the galactic centre.
  • There are almost 5,000 exoplanets outside of our solar system.
