Eeloo is a Dwarf Planet that was released in version 0.18.2 as a Christmas gift to the KSP community. It is the seventh planet from Kerbol, though it occasionally intersects Jool's orbit, passing in front of it. It is also locked in a 3:2 resonance with Jool.
Eeoloo's size and mass are very roughly comparable to that of the Mün, as is its lack of atmosphere. The body is most likely an analogue of the ice moon Europa or the dwarf planet Pluto, though both bodies are known to have a tenuous atmosphere.
There are plans for Eeloo to become the moon of a second gas giant, and have a more active surface.[]
The surface of Eeloo is relatively smooth and covered in ice, with deep canyons exposing the surface below. It is unclear if there are any peaks above 2 km high.
A synchronous orbit is possible, at an altitude of ~683.9 km.
Rotational/Inertial transition: ? m
