Anthe, Moon of Saturn

Anthe is a Moon that orbits round the planet Saturn. It is also know by other designations, XLIX, S/2007 S4. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 1,498,668,433,097 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 0.5. Its volume is 3. It was discovered by Cassini Imaging Science Team.

The orbital period, i.e. the period it takes to complete an orbit round Saturn is 1.04 days. The figure is also known as the sidereel period. The figure comes from N.A.S.A..

The Equatorial Radius of the object is 1km. The value is the radius in km of the said object at the Equator.

The Escape Velocity of the object is 2 km/h. The Escape Velocity is the speed an object needs to be travelling in order to break free from the objects gravity. The larger an object is, the more velocity (speed) is needed to break free from the object.The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 197.7, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.

The equatorial circumference of Anthe is 5.7 km. The surface area of Anthe is 10.18. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.00012. The Mean orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 49767.00 km/h. The is the average distance in km of the object is from its parent 197700.00.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Anthe orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 0.1 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.0011, it is the degree at which Anthe orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
