Planet Nereid -- Nereid ("NEER ee ed") is the outermost of Neptune's known moons and the third largest, with a diameter of 340 km. Its orbit averages 5,513,400 km in radius, but is highly eccentric and varies from 1,353,600 to 9,623,700 kilometers. This is the most highly eccentric orbit of any known planet or satellite in the solar system. This unusual orbit suggests that it may be a captured asteroid or Kuiper belt object, or possibly that it was perturbed during the capture of...

Triton is unique among all large moons in the solar system for its retrograde orbit around the planet (i.e., it orbits in a direction opposite to the planet's rotation). Jupiter's moons Ananke, Carme, Pasiphae and Sinope and Saturn's moon Phoebe also orbit retrograde, but all of them...
