Tarqeq, Moon of Saturn

Tarqeq is a Moon that orbits round the planet Saturn. It is also know by other designations, SLII, S/2007 S1. Its density has been calculated at being 2.3. Its volume is 113.

Tarqeq was discovered on 16 January 2007 by Scott S. Sheppard, David C. Jewitt and Jan T. Kleyna.

The orbital period, i.e. the period it takes to complete an orbit round Saturn is 888 days. The figure is also known as the sidereel period. The figure comes from N.A.S.A..

The Equatorial Radius of the object is 3km. The value is the radius in km of the said object at the Equator.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 18010, which is the furthest point from the centre to the edge of an elliptical point.

The equatorial circumference of Tarqeq is 18.8 km. The surface area of Tarqeq is 113.10. The Mean orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 5265.70 km/h. The is the average distance in km of the object is from its parent 17909900.00.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Tarqeq orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 46.1 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.1186, it is the degree at which Tarqeq orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
