Erinome, Moon of Jupiter

Erinome is a Moon that orbits round Jupiter rather than the Sun which our Earth orbits round. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 143,676,263.20 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 29,466,965 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 44,960,052,992,916 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 2.6 g/cm3. Its volume is 2.6 g/cm3. It was discovered on 23 November 2000 by Scott S. Sheppard, David C. Jewitt, Yanga R. Fernandez, and Eugene Magnier.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 23,283,000 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 44,960,052,992,916 kg. The equatorial circumference of Erinome is 10.1 km. The mean radius of Erinome is 1.6 (assuming an albedo of 0.04) km. The surface area of Erinome is 32.17 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 8,218.0 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Erinome orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 164.921 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.2656, it is the degree at which Erinome orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
