# S/2006 S3, Moon of Saturn

**S/2006 S3** is a Moon that orbits round the planet Saturn. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 133,000,661.82 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 31,032,960 km. Its density has been calculated at being 2.3 g/cm3. Its volume is 65 km3.

S/2006 S3 was discovered on 6 March 2006 by Scott S. Sheppard, David C. Jewitt and Jan T. Kleyna.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 22,100,100 km, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.

The equatorial circumference of S/2006 S3 is 15.7 km. The mean radius of S/2006 S3 is 2.5 (assuming an albedo of 0.04) km. The surface area of S/2006 S3 is 78.54 km2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 4,516.1 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which S/2006 S3 orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 158.904 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.4042, it is the degree at which S/2006 S3 orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
