# Miranda, Moon of Uranus

**Miranda** is a Moon that orbits round the planet Uranus. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 816,185.43 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 130,069 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 65,941,411,056,276,500,000 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 1.214 g/cm3. Its volume is 54,918,670 km3.

Miranda was discovered on 16 February 1948 by Gerard P. Kuiper. Its orbital period, i.e. the period it takes to complete an orbit round Uranus is 1.413 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 129,900 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 65,941,411,056,276,500,000 kg. The equatorial circumference of Miranda is 1481.6 km. The mean radius of Miranda is 235.8km (+/- 0.7). The surface area of Miranda is 698,710.82 km2. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.079 m/s2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 24,067.7 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Miranda orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 4.338 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.0013, it is the degree at which Miranda orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
