Logos

Logos is a Kuiper Belt object, a large rock that orbits round outside the orbit of Neptune. It has been categorised as a object. It has an alternative name which is 1997 CQ29.

Logos was discovered on 1997-02-04 by Mauna Kea.

The absolute magnitude of the object is 6.6 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 Aphelion of the object is 50.588 A.U. which is the point in the orbit that is furthest from the object that it is orbit. At this point, it will then return back to the orbit target. The Perihelion of the object is 39.945 A.U. which is the point in the orbit that is closest to the object that it is orbit around. The Longitude of Ascending Node of the object is 132.6 degrees. The Argument of Perihelion is 337.5. 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 62.4, is the angular distance of the planet from the perihelion or aphelion. Ref:Dictionary.The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 45.267, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Logos orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 2.9 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.118, it is the degree at which Logos orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
