Prometheus
  پرومتیءوس   
Prometeus (#)

Fr.: Prométhée   

The third closest satellite of Saturn, also known as Saturn XVI, orbiting at a distance of 139,350 km. It orbits Saturn in 0.613 days and acts as a shepherd moon to Saturn's F ring beyond it. It is irregularly shaped, 145 x 85 x 62 km. Prometheus was iscovered by S. Collins and others in 1980 from Voyager photos.

  پرومتیوم   
prometiom (#)

Fr.: prométhium
