Albiorix is a Moon that orbits round the planet Saturn. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 96,726,713.37 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 24,335,952 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 20,981,358,063,360,700 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 2.3 g/cm3. Its volume is 17,157 km3.
Albiorix was discovered on 9 November 2000 by Matthew J. Holman and Timothy B. Spahr.
The orbital period, i.e. the period it takes to complete an orbit round Saturn is 783.46 days. The figure is also known as the sidereel period. The figure comes from N.A.S.A..
The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 16,401,100 km, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.
The equatorial circumference of Albiorix is 100.5 km. The mean radius, that is the average radius of Albiorix is 16.0 (assuming an albedo of 0.06) km. The surface area of Albiorix is 3,216.99 km2. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.005 m/s2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 5,143.8 km/h.
The orbital inclination, the angle at which Albiorix orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 35.511 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.4838, it is the degree at which Albiorix orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
The moon does end with the traditional e or a identifying whether the orbit is with or against the orbit of the planet. The moon orbits in the same direction as Saturn.
Unlike other moons, this is not a Roman or Greek god but a Gallic one. Gallic referring to the Gauls in what is now France. Albiorix was the Gallic king of the kings, equivalent to Zeus and Jupiter in Greek and Roman Myths.
