CNN — Instead of your name in lights, how about adding your name to a moon among the stars!

Scientists are giving you the chance to name one of the 20-newly discovered moons around Saturn.

Astronomers say scientists did not know the moons existed until recently.

Starting Monday, Carnegie Institution for Science kicks off its naming contest.

To enter the contest, they say just tweet your suggested name to "Saturn Lunacy" with the hashtag: #namesaturnsmoons.

There are rules. You can check out Carnegie Science's website here to learn them.

Carnegie says they are hoping to name all 20 moons.

Their contest closes on December 6th.
