Telesto is a Moon that orbits round the planet Saturn. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 2,371,369.91 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 380,100 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 11,389,880,091,538,700 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 0.5 g/cm3. Its volume is 0.5 g/cm3. It was discovered on 1 March 1980 by P. Laques, J. Lecacheus.
The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 377,420 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 11,389,880,091,538,700 kg. The equatorial circumference of Telesto is 110.6 km. The mean radius of Telesto is 17.6 km. The surface area of Telesto is 3,892.56 km2. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.002 m/s2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 36,100.5 km/h.
The orbital inclination, the angle at which Telesto orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 0.213 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.0071, it is the degree at which Telesto orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
