Oberon, Moon of Uranus

Oberon 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 3,666,236.83 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 584,317 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 2,883,438,065,279,000,000,000 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 1.559 g/cm3. Its volume is 1.559 g/cm3. It was discovered in the year 1787 by W. Herschel.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 583,500 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 2,883,438,065,279,000,000,000 kg. The equatorial circumference of Oberon is 4,784.0 km. The mean radius of Oberon is 761.4 km. The surface area of Oberon is 7,285,101.53 km2. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.332 m/s2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 11,349.2 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Oberon orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 0.068 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.0014, it is the degree at which Oberon orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
