S/2005 S12, Moon of Saturn

S/2005 S12 is a Moon that orbits round the planet Saturn. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 121,512,877.18 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 26,280,729 km. Its density has been calculated at being 2.3 g/cm3. Its volume is 65 km3.

S/2005 S12 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 19,867,500 km, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.

The equatorial circumference of S/2005 S12 is 15.7 km. The mean radius, that is the average radius of S/2005 S12 is 2.5 (assuming an albedo of 0.04) km. The surface area of S/2005 S12 is 78.54 km2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 4,839.7 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which S/2005 S12 orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 163.309 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.3228, it is the degree at which S/2005 S12 orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
