# Thebe, Moon of Jupiter

**Thebe** is a Moon that orbits round the planet Jupiter. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 1,394,130.84 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 225,805 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 1,498,668,433,097,190,000 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 3 g/cm3. Its volume is 501,914 km3. It was discovered in the year 1980 by Voyager science team. Its orbital period, i.e. the period it takes to complete an orbit round Jupiter is 0.675 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 221,900 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 1,498,668,433,097,190,000 kg. The equatorial circumference of Thebe is 309.8 km. The mean radius of Thebe is 49.3 km. The surface area of Thebe is 30,542.44 km2. The surface gravity of the said item is 0.041 m/s2. The average orbit velocity, that is the speed at which it orbits is 86,057.5 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Thebe orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 1.08 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.0176, it is the degree at which Thebe orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
