Some of Jupiter's moons! There are 67 confirmed moons of Jupiter. This gives Jupiter the largest number of moons with reasonably secure orbits of any planet in the Solar System.

Uranus is the third largest planet in our Solar System. Uranus has nine major rings and 27 known moons. This image, taken by the Hubble Space Telescope in infrared reveals cloud structures not normally visible. Methane gas in the upper atmosphere absorbs red light, giving the planet its blue-green color. Uranus is spinning on its side, probably because of a collision with a large object early in the Solar System's history.

Which means that there are ones much, much bigger than little wimpy sun. Just look at how tiny and insignificant our sun is: | 26 Pictures Will Make You Re-Evaluate Your Entire Existence

This shows the size of our Sun compared with VY Canis Majoris, the largest star found thus far. It's times bigger than our Sun.
