Daphnis, Moon of Saturn

Daphnis 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 857,654.79 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 77,930,758,521,054 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 0.34 g/cm3. Its volume is 0.34 g/cm3. It was discovered on 1 May 2005 by Cassini Imaging Science Team.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 136,500 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 77,930,758,521,054 kg. The equatorial circumference of Daphnis is 23.9 km. The mean radius of Daphnis is 3.8 (assuming albedo of 0.8) km. The surface area of Daphnis is 181.46 km2. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.00036 m/s2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 60,161.0 km/h.

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