Thelxinoe, Moon of Jupiter

Thelxinoe is a Moon that orbits round Jupiter rather than the Sun which our Earth orbits round. Its orbit circumference, the total distance it travels round its planetary parent is 131,368,538.70 km. The furthest it gets from its orbital parent (apoasis) is 25,808,601 km. Its mass is estimated/calculated at being 14,986,684,330,972 kg. Its density has been calculated at being 2.6 g/cm3. Its volume is 2.6 g/cm3. It was discovered on 9 February 2003 by Scott S. Sheppard and Brett J. Gladman.

The Semi-Major Axis of the orbit is 21,165,000 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 14,986,684,330,972 kg. The equatorial circumference of Thelxinoe is 6.3 km. The mean radius of Thelxinoe is 1.0 (assuming an albedo of 0.04) km. The surface area of Thelxinoe is 12.57 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 8,714.7 km/h.

The orbital inclination, the angle at which Thelxinoe orbits in relation to the orbital plane is 151.335 degrees. The orbital eccentricity is 0.2194, it is the degree at which Thelxinoe orbits close to a circular (0) orbit as opposed to an elliptical (1) orbit.
