Desdemona, Moon of Uranus

Desdemona is a Moon that orbits round Uranus rather than the Sun which our Earth orbits round. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 393,955.72 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 62,706 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 178,341,543,538,566,000 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 1.3 g/cm3. Its volume is 1.3 g/cm3. It was discovered on 13 January 1986 by Voyager 2 Science Team.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 62,700 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 178,341,543,538,566,000 kg. The equatorial circumference of Desdemona is 201.1 km. The mean radius of Desdemona is 32.0km (+/- 4). The surface area of Desdemona is 12,867.96 km2. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.012 m/s2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 34,630.4 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Desdemona orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 0.113 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.0001, it is the degree at which Desdemona orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
