Francisco, Moon of Uranus

Francisco is a Moon that orbits round Uranus rather than the Sun which our Earth orbits round. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 26,791,931.29 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 4,849,956 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 8,392,543,225,344,280 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 1.5 g/cm3. Its volume is 1.5 g/cm3. It was discovered on 13 August 2001 by John J. Kavalaars, Matthew J. Holman, Dan Milisavljevic, and Tommy Grav..

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 4,282,900 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 8,392,543,225,344,280 kg. The equatorial circumference of Francisco is 69.1 km. The mean radius of Francisco is 11 (assuming an albedo of 0.04) km. The surface area of Francisco is 1,520.53 km2. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.005 m/s2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 4,179.6 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Francisco orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 147.25 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.1324, it is the degree at which Francisco orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
