Triton, the largest of Neptune's moons, has a retrograde orbit, and is the only major moon in the solar system with this type of orbit. This, and the fact that Triton seems to have a similar composition to that of Pluto, suggests to scientists that Triton formed in the Kuyper Belt and was captured by Neptune's gravity.
