Jarnsaxa, Moon of Saturn

Jarnsaxa is a Moon that orbits round the planet Saturn. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 120,173,869.21 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 23,558,674 km. Its density has been calculated at being 2.3 g/cm3. Its volume is 113 km3.

Jarnsaxa was discovered on 6 March 2006 by Scott S. Sheppard, David C. Jewitt and Jan T. Kleyna.

The orbital period, i.e. the period it takes to complete an orbit round Saturn is 1006.94 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 19,356,400 km, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.

The equatorial circumference of Jarnsaxa is 18.8 km. The mean radius, that is the average radius of Jarnsaxa is 3.0 (assuming an albedo of 0.04) km. The surface area of Jarnsaxa is 113.10 km2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 4,972.5 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Jarnsaxa orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 163.322 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.2171, it is the degree at which Jarnsaxa orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
