(216) Kleopatra Asteroid

Kleopatra is an asteroid, a large rock that orbits the Sun mainly between the orbits of Mars and Jupiter. They tend to be an irregular shaped but Ceres asteroid is known to be spherical in shape but because it doesn't clear its path round the Sun, it is only a dwarf planet. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 9. Its orbit takes 4.67 years to travel round the Sun. Its takes 5.385 hours to do a full rotation period.

The absolute magnitude of the object is 7.3 which is the brightness of the object. A higher absolute magnitude means that the object is faint whereas a very low number means it is very bright.

The albedo of the object is 1. The Albedo is the amount of radiation that is reflected back into space by the object.

The Longitude of Ascending Node of the object is 215.35503 degrees. The Argument of Perihelion is 180.0566. It is the angle along the orbit of a planet or other Solar System object as measured from the ascending node (analogous to right ascension and longitude) Ref:Hawaii.

The mean anomoly is 70.69628, is the angular distance of the planet from the perihelion or aphelion. Ref:Dictionary.The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 2.7937727, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.

The approximate diameter of Kleopatra is 217x94 km.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Kleopatra orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 13.11299 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.2509091, it is the degree at which Kleopatra orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
