Cyllene, Moon of Jupiter

Cyllene is a Moon that orbits round the planet Jupiter. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 142,715,284.05 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 33,718,073 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 14,986,684,330,972 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 2.6 g/cm3. Its volume is 2.6 g/cm3. It was discovered on 9 February 2003 by Scott S. Sheppard.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 23,787,000 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 14,986,684,330,972 kg. The equatorial circumference of Cyllene is 6.3 km. The mean radius of Cyllene is 1.0 (assuming an albedo of 0.04) km. The surface area of Cyllene is 12.57 km2. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.001 m/s2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 7,907.4 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Cyllene orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 150.202 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.4175, it is the degree at which Cyllene orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
