Rosalind, Moon of Uranus

Rosalind 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 439,194.65 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 69,907 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 254,773,633,626,523,000 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 1.3 g/cm3. Its volume is 1.3 g/cm3. It was discovered in the year 1986 by S. Synnott, Voyager 2.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 69,900 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 254,773,633,626,523,000 kg. The equatorial circumference of Rosalind is 226.2 km. The mean radius of Rosalind is 36.0 km. The surface area of Rosalind is 16,286.02 km2. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.013 m/s2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 32,795.3 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Rosalind orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 0.279 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.0001, it is the degree at which Rosalind orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
