Tarqeq, Moon of Saturn

Tarqeq is a Moon that orbits round the planet Saturn. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 112,134,455.81 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 20,034,014 km. Its density has been calculated at being 2.3 g/cm3. Its volume is 113 km3.

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 885.15 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 17,909,900 km, 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 mean radius, that is the average radius of Tarqeq is 3.0 km. The surface area of Tarqeq is 113.10 km2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 5,265.7 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Tarqeq orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 49.572 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.
