Astronomers led by Brett J. Gladman, et al. discovered Jupiter LXI, provisionally known as S/2003 J 19, in 2003. There are three large 31mm Belomorites, one Moonstone and one octahedral Fluorite of periwinkle color, all from Jupiter LXI. Soon after Jupiter’s Galilean moons were discovered in 1610 by Simon Marius, the four were named Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto.
According to NASA system exploration the Thelxinoe was originally named S/2003 J22 after a Muse, a goddess equivalent to Jupiter in the Greek religion. This irregular retrograde moon orbits Jupiter between 23 and 24 Gms away and belongs to the Carme group
The S/2003 J 19 Diameters
There is a diameter of about 2 kilometres on this planet, and it orbits Jupiter at an average distance of 22,709 kilometres in 699.125 days, in a retrograde direction with an eccentricity of 0.1961. It must rotate to orbit Jupiter at 165° inclination to the ecliptic (164° inclination to Jupiter’s equator).

How Many Jupiter Moons Are?
A total of 80 moons orbit Jupiter. The International Astronomical Union (IAU) has given official names to 50 of them. The IAU is awaiting official names for 23 other moons.
Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto are the first four Galilean satellites discovered beyond Earth. And are regarded as the most scientifically interesting moons orbiting the planet.
