Fornjot was discovered on 12 December 2004 by Scott S. Sheppard, David L. Jewitt and Jan T. Kleyna.
The orbital period, i.e. the period it takes to complete an orbit round Saturn is 1494.09 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 25,151,200 km, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.
The mean radius, that is the average radius of Fornjot is 3.0 (assuming an albedo of 0.04) km.
