One wrong word ...[edit]

OK, this is very much a personal bugbear, but Herschel's four spurious satellites were not "small" stars but "faint" stars! —Preceding unsigned comment added by 121.216.109.12 (talk) 11:48, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Good point. :) Serendipodous 11:59, 15 January 2011 (UTC)
Herschel did describe them as "small", which was the word then used for "faint". Maybe we should mention both in the article? CielProfond (talk) 12:54, 15 January 2011 (UTC)

Mab diameter?[edit]

The table has Mab listed with a diameter of about 25km, but the article on Mab states a mean radius of 24km. Did someone put the radius in place of diameter (or vice versa) by mistake? -- 136.181.195.29 (talk) 23:34, 22 January 2011 (UTC) MikeS

I can not access the reference in Mab (moon). But Scott Sheppard shows Mab (S/2003 U1) at only 10km in diameter. Something may be wrong with the references. -- Kheider (talk) 01:53, 23 January 2011 (UTC)

Number of moons[edit]

In the first sentence, it says that "Uranus has 30 known moons." However, all the other statements indicate Uranus has 27 moons. I believe the number '30' is wrong. Would somebody care to edit this, for I am not sure if my thought is true? --Weatherlover819 (talk) 14:09, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
