New moon discovered around Neptune

NASA discovered a new moon around Neptune. I think this makes.. 14? Not sure. However, this is the first new moon found in a decade. It was discovered on a photo archived in 2009, taken by the Hubble. It is very hard to get a picture like this. Imagine a photographer tracking a sprinter, where the photo has the runner in focus but the background is blurred. Same concept, way harder to achieve.
