Kari A moon of Saturn, discovered in 2006 by Scott Sheppard, David Jewitt, Jan Kleyna and Brian Marsden. It orbits Saturn in a retrograde direction, opposite to the direction that Saturn spins. It is about 22,305,100 kilometres (13,859,747 miles) from Saturn and takes over 1,243 days to get around the planet. It has a diameter of about 7 kilometres (4.3 miles).
Kilometre (Kilometer) A unit of measurement, the most common unit of measurement used when describing sizes and distances that relate to the Solar System, and often abbreviated to km. For example, the diameter of Earth (its width across its equator) is 12,765 km, and the average distance from Earth to the Sun is 149,600,000 km. One kilometre is equal to 1,000 metres. A kilometre is a measurement in the metric system, and is roughly equal to just over three fifths of one mile. In other words, 3 miles is about equal to 5 kilometres.
