# Farabauti, Moon of Saturn

**Farabauti** is a Moon that orbits round the planet Saturn. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 126,146,054.43 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 25,387,931 km. Its density has been calculated at being 2.3 g/cm3. Its volume is 65 km3.

Farabauti was discovered on 12 December 2004 by Scott S. Sheppard, David C. Jewitt and Jan T. Kleyna.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 20,387,000 km, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.

The equatorial circumference of Farabauti is 15.7 km. The mean radius of Farabauti is 2.5 (assuming an albedo of 0.04) km. The surface area of Farabauti is 78.54 km2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 4,835.4 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Farabauti orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 158.045 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.2453, it is the degree at which Farabauti orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
