Anthe, Moon of Saturn

Anthe 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 1,242,185.42 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 197,898 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 1,498,668,433,097 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 0.5 g/cm3. Its volume is 0.5 g/cm3. It was discovered by Cassini Imaging Science Team.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 197,700 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 1,498,668,433,097 kg. The equatorial circumference of Anthe is 5.7 km. The mean radius of Anthe is 0.9 km. The surface area of Anthe is 10.18 km2. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.00012 m/s2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 49,767.0 km/h.

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.
