Stars are hot and bright. They produce their own heat and light. That's what we usually see when we glare at the night sky. Platens are usually cold. They don't create heat and light, they take it from the start they revolve around. Some of them we can see at night for example Venus, a few days ago you could see Jupiter along with Venus because they reflect the light they get from the sun. Satellites are smaller than planets and revolve around them just as planets revolve around start. Earth's natural satellite is the Moon. Jupiter has the most satellites of all the planets in our solar system, 64 to be exact. The biggest satellite is Ganymede( Jupiter ), the 2nd one is Titan( Saturn )- this one has a really interesting atmosphere.
