Kale 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 144,056,039.82 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 29,176,434 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 9 December 2001 by Scott S. Sheppard, David C. Jewitt and Jan T. Kleyna.
The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 23,302,000 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 Kale is 6.3 km. The mean radius of Kale is 1.0 (assuming an albedo of 0.04) km. The surface area of Kale 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 8,227.4 km/h.
The orbital inclination, the angle at which Kale orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 165.072 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.2521, it is the degree at which Kale orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
