S/2000 J11, Moon of Jupiter

S/2000 J11 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 77,658,091.11 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 15,668,640 km. Its volume is . It was discovered on December 5, 2000 by S. S. Sheppard, D. C. Jewitt, Y. R. Fernandez, and G. Magnier of the University of Hawaii with the 2.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 12,555,000 km, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.

The equatorial circumference of S/2000 J11 is 12.6 km. The mean radius of S/2000 J11 is 2 km. The surface area of S/2000 J11 is 50.27 km2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 11,274.4 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which S/2000 J11 orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 28.3 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.248, it is the degree at which S/2000 J11 orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
