Albiorix, Moon of Saturn

Albiorix is a Moon that orbits round Saturn rather than the Sun which our Earth orbits round. 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 2.3 g/cm3. It was discovered on 9 November 2000 by Matthew J. Holman and Timothy B. Spahr.

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 mass of the object is calculated at being 20,981,358,063,360,700 kg. The equatorial circumference of Albiorix is 100.5 km. The mean 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.
