# Desdemona, Moon of Uranus

**Desdemona** is a Moon that orbits round the planet Uranus. 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 137,258 km3.

Desdemona was discovered on 13 January 1986 by Voyager 2 Science Team. Its orbital period, i.e. the period it takes to complete an orbit round Uranus is 0.474 days. The figure is also known as the sidereel period. The figure comes from N.A.S.A..

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.
