# Skathi, Moon of Saturn

**Skathi** is a Moon that orbits round the planet Saturn. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 95,953,368.15 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 20,203,343 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 314,720,370,950,411 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 2.3 g/cm3. Its volume is 268 km3. It was discovered on 23 September 2000 by Brett J. Gladman, John J. Kavelaars, Jean-Marc Petit, Hans Scholl, Matthew J. Holman, Brian G. Marsd.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 15,614,300 km, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.

The mass of the object is calculated at being 314,720,370,950,411 kg. The equatorial circumference of Skathi is 25.1 km. The mean radius of Skathi is 4.0 (assuming an albedo of 0.06) km. The surface area of Skathi is 201.06 km2. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.001 m/s2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 5,491.1 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Skathi orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 150.798 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.2939, it is the degree at which Skathi orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
