Orthosie, Moon of Jupiter

Orthosie 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 130,369,596.18 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 27,047,592 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 11 December 2001 by Scott S. Sheppard, David C. Jewitt and Jan T. Kleyna.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 21,164,000 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 Orthosie is 6.3 km. The mean radius of Orthosie is 1.0 (assuming an albedo of 0.04) km. The surface area of Orthosie 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 8,725.5 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Orthosie orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 145.937 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.278, it is the degree at which Orthosie orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
