# S/2003 J23, Moon of Jupiter

**S/2003 J23** is a Moon that orbits round the planet Jupiter. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 145,223,973.12 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 29,911,940 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 4 km3. It was discovered in the year 2003 by Scott S. Sheppard.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 23,549,000 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 S/2003 J23 is 6.3 km. The mean radius of S/2003 J23 is 1.0 (assuming an albedo of 0.04) km. The surface area of S/2003 J23 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 8,261.1 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which S/2003 J23 orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 146.267 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.2702, it is the degree at which S/2003 J23 orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
