Bebhionn, Moon of Saturn

Bebhionn 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 100,947,762.72 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 25,402,815 km. Its density has been calculated at being 2.3 g/cm3. Its volume is 2.3 g/cm3. It was discovered on 12 December 2004 by Scott S. Sheppard, David C. Jewitt and Jan T. Kleyna.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 17,117,800 km, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.

The equatorial circumference of Bebhionn is 18.8 km. The mean radius of Bebhionn is 3.0 (assuming an albedo of 0.04) km. The surface area of Bebhionn is 113.10 km2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 5,037.7 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Bebhionn orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 34.563 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.484, it is the degree at which Bebhionn orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
