3 small new moons have been found around Uranus and Neptune, and one of them is very small

Astronomers have discovered two small moons orbiting Neptune and another orbiting Uranus, bringing the number of known moons to 16 and 28, respectively.

Uranus' new moon, the first moon discovered around the ice giant in more than two decades and perhaps the smallest of its kind, is only 5 miles (8 kilometers) across; It takes 680 days to complete one orbit around Uranus. In comparison, one of Mars's moons called Deimos, which is one of the smallest known moons in our solar system, is 8 miles (13 km) across.
