Suttungr, Moon of Saturn

Suttungr is a Moon that orbits round Saturn rather than the Sun which our Earth orbits round. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 121,977,843.10 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 21,695,096 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 209,813,580,633,607 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 2.3 g/cm3. Its volume is 2.3 g/cm3. It was discovered in the year 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 19,476,700 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 209,813,580,633,607 kg. The equatorial circumference of Suttungr is 22.0 km. The mean radius of Suttungr is 3.5 (assuming an albedo of 0.06) km. The surface area of Suttungr is 153.94 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 4,999.0 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Suttungr orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 173.888 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.1139, it is the degree at which Suttungr orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
