You may be looking for moons, which are known as natural satellites.

A satellite was an artificial device put into orbit above a planet or moon. They would usually be used as means of relaying communications and information networks or for purposes of surveillance.


The Federation starship USS Voyager had to keep itself hidden from Earth's satellites during it's temporal incursion to 1996. (VOY episode: "Future's End")

In 2020, Shaun Christopher considered how difficult it was to put a satellite into an orbit directly above a pole when the alien probe, C/2018-G2, assumed position directly above Saturn's north pole. (TOS novel: The Rings of Time)
