Saturn's natural satellites

Saturn is currently known to have 56 moons, many of which were discovered very recently, and 3 additional un-confirmed, hypothetical moons.

However, a precise number of moons can never be given, as there is no objective dividing line between the anonymous orbiting fragments that form Saturn's ring system and the larger objects that have already been named as moons.
