# Skoll, Moon of Saturn

**Skoll** is a Moon that orbits round the planet Saturn. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 104,560,866.80 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 25,972,116 km. Its density has been calculated at being 2.3 g/cm3. Its volume is 113 km3.

Skoll was discovered on 6 March 2006 by Scott S. Sheppard, David C. Jewitt and Jan T. Kleyna. Its orbital period, i.e. the period it takes to complete an orbit round Saturn is 878.24 days. The figure is also known as the sidereel period. The figure comes from N.A.S.A..

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 17,663,300 km, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.

The equatorial circumference of Skoll is 18.8 km. The mean radius of Skoll is 3.0 (assuming an albedo of 0.04) km. The surface area of Skoll is 113.10 km2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 4,959.9 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Skoll orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 160.178 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.4704, it is the degree at which Skoll orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
