Kallichore (moon)

From Academic Kids

Kallichore (ka-lik'-a-ree, Greek Καλλιχόρη; also Jupiter XLIV) is a natural satellite of Jupiter. It was discovered by a team of astronomers from the University of Hawaii led by Scott S. Sheppard, et al. in 2003. It received the temporary designation S/2003 J 11. Kallichore is about 2 kilometres in diameter, and orbits Jupiter at an average distance of 23,112 Mm in 717.806 days, at an inclination of 164° to the ecliptic (141° to Jupiter's equator), in a retrograde direction and with an eccentricity of 0.2042.

Kallichore is supposedly one of the Muses, and thus a daughter of Zeus (Jupiter). She is better known as one of the Nysiads, nymphs which nursed Dionysos.

It belongs to the Carme group, made up of irregular retrograde moons orbiting Jupiter at a distance ranging between 23 and 24 Gm and at an inclination of about 165°.
