# S/2010 J10, Moon of Jupiter

**S/2010 J10** is a Moon that orbits round Jupiter rather than the Sun which our Earth orbits round. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 142,662,928.98 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 30,774,922 km. Its volume is . It was discovered on 7 September 2010 by R. Jacobson, M. Brozovic, B. Gladman, and M. Alexandersen.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 23,314,335 km, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.

The equatorial circumference of S/2010 J10 is 12.6 km. The mean radius of S/2010 J10 is 2 km. The surface area of S/2010 J10 is 50.27 km2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 8,219.4 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which S/2010 J10 orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 163.2 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.320, it is the degree at which S/2010 J10 orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
