Bebhionn, Moon of Saturn

Bebhionn is a Moon that orbits round the planet Saturn. It is also know by other designations, XXXVII, S/2004 S11. Its density has been calculated at being 2.3. Its volume is 113.

Bebhionn was discovered on 12 December 2004 by Scott S. Sheppard, David C. Jewitt and Jan T. Kleyna.

The orbital period, i.e. the period it takes to complete an orbit round Saturn is 835 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 3km. The Equatorial Radius is based on the assumption of the Albedo value. The value is the radius in km of the said object at the Equator.

The albedo of the object is 0.04. The Albedo is the amount of radiation that is reflected back into space by the object.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 17120, 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 surface area of Bebhionn is 113.10. The Mean orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 5037.70 km/h. The is the average distance in km of the object is from its parent 17117800.00.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Bebhionn orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 35 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.
