Hello u/EmpiricalBreakfast, your submission "I have forgotten something. There are objects that follow in Jupiter's orbit around the sun. Not moons, but asteroid satellites that follow behind and in front. What are they called? I had thought it was Jovian Satellites but that seems to just mean moon." has been removed from r/space because:
