# S/2007 S3, Moon of Saturn

**S/2007 S3** is a Moon that orbits round the planet Saturn. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 118,243,025.18 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 22,487,857 km. Its density has been calculated at being 2.3 g/cm3. Its volume is 34 km3. It was discovered in the year 2007 by Scott S. Sheppard, David L. Jewitt and Jan T. Kleyna.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 18,981,900 km, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.

The equatorial circumference of S/2007 S3 is 12.6 km. The mean radius of S/2007 S3 is 2.0 (assuming an albedo of 0.04) km. The surface area of S/2007 S3 is 50.27 km2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 5,038.7 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which S/2007 S3 orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 175.704 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.1847, it is the degree at which S/2007 S3 orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
