# Eukelade, Moon of Jupiter

**Eukelade** is a Moon that orbits round the planet Jupiter. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 143,888,850.71 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 29,548,974 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 89,920,105,985,832 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 2.6 g/cm3. Its volume is 34 km3.

Eukelade was discovered on 6 February 2003 by Scott S. Sheppard. Its orbital period, i.e. the period it takes to complete an orbit round Jupiter is 730.33 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 23,322,000 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 89,920,105,985,832 kg. The equatorial circumference of Eukelade is 12.6 km. The mean radius of Eukelade is 2.0 km. The surface area of Eukelade is 50.27 km2. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.002 m/s2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 8,209.2 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Eukelade orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 165.246 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.267, it is the degree at which Eukelade orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
