Pallene, Moon of Saturn

Pallene is a Moon that orbits round the planet Saturn. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 1,333,789.24 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 213,129 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 32,970,705,528,138 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 0.5 g/cm3. Its volume is 65 km3.

Pallene was discovered on June 1, 2004 by S. Charnoz, C. Porco, Cassini Imaging Team.

The orbital period, i.e. the period it takes to complete an orbit round Saturn is 1.154 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 212,280 km, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.

The equatorial circumference of Pallene is 15.7 km. The mean radius, that is the average radius of Pallene is 2.5 km. The surface area of Pallene is 78.54 km2. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.00035 m/s2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 48,158.2 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Pallene orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 0.181 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.004, it is the degree at which Pallene orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
