Magaret, Moon of Uranus

Magaret 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 77,591,859.82 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 23,726,845 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 6,294,407,419,008,210 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 1.5 g/cm3. Its volume is 1.5 g/cm3. It was discovered on 29 August 2003 by Scott S. Sheppard and David C. Jewitt.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 14,146,700 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 6,294,407,419,008,210 kg. The equatorial circumference of Magaret is 62.8 km. The mean radius of Magaret is 10.0 (assuming an albedo of 0.04) km. The surface area of Magaret is 1,256.64 km2. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.004 m/s2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 1,946.4 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Magaret orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 57.367 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.6772, it is the degree at which Magaret orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
