# Euporie, Moon of Jupiter

**Euporie** 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 120,878,139.62 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 22,123,816 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 14,986,684,330,972 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 2.6 g/cm3. Its volume is 2.6 g/cm3. It was discovered on 11 December 2001 by Scott S. Sheppard, David C. Jewitt and Jan T. Kleyna.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 19,339,000 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 14,986,684,330,972 kg. The equatorial circumference of Euporie is 6.3 km. The mean radius of Euporie is 1.0 (assuming an albedo of 0.04) km. The surface area of Euporie is 12.57 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 9,146.0 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Euporie orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 145.499 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.144, it is the degree at which Euporie orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
