Narvi, Moon of Saturn

Narvi is a Moon that orbits round Saturn rather than the Sun which our Earth orbits round. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 116,260,381.58 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 27,691,012 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 344,693,739,612,354 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 2.3 g/cm3. Its volume is 2.3 g/cm3. It was discovered on 8 April 2003 by Scott S. Sheppard, David C. Jewitt and Jan T. Kleyna.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 19,417,300 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 344,693,739,612,354 kg. The equatorial circumference of Narvi is 22.0 km. The mean radius of Narvi is 3.5 (assuming an albedo of 0.04) km. The surface area of Narvi is 153.94 km2. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.002 m/s2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 4,826.1 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Narvi orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 143.242 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.4261, it is the degree at which Narvi orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
