Orbital elements for 2000 Jovian satellites

Updated 8 January 2002 to include all current observations and residuals for S/2000 J objects

Click here for data on the 2001 satellites

Click here to see a perspective rendering of the six inner, prograde Jovian satellites, or you can click here to see the orbits of the fourteen outer, retrograde satellites. In both images, the orbit of Callisto, the outermost Galilean, has been added to give a sense of scale.
