      The largest moon in our solar system is Ganymede which is one of Jupiters moons, It’s larger than Mercury!

      (A body is given the classification of a moon if it orbits a planet)

      We don’t know if its the largest moon in the galaxy though because we can only just about find planets that are Earth sized so finding a moon is difficult.
