# S/2004 S13, Moon of Saturn

**S/2004 S13** is a Moon that orbits round the planet Saturn. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 113,678,850.21 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 23,202,325 km. Its density has been calculated at being 2.3 g/cm3. Its volume is 113 km3.

S/2004 S13 was discovered on 12 December 2004 by Scott S. Sheppard, David L. Jewitt and Jan T. Kleyna.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 18,408,700 km, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.

The equatorial circumference of S/2004 S13 is 18.8 km. The mean radius of S/2004 S13 is 3.0 (assuming an albedo of 0.04) km. The surface area of S/2004 S13 is 113.10 km2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 5,073.8 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which S/2004 S13 orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 169.079 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.2604, it is the degree at which S/2004 S13 orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
