48.837 Gm -- what is "Gm?" ...this should have a link or something to explain that unit.

Standard metric. G is giga- (109), as in gigabyte (GB), and m is meter. 1Gm = 1000Mm; 1Mm = 1000km.
I changed it to km, which I think is much clearer and way more widely-used. Also added the orbital period.
Ah, but proper usage is the closest unit. I'll add the link so it is easier next time.

Yes, why use understandable units when something more obtuse will do? ;-) —RJH (talk) 17:59, 12 November 2009 (UTC)Reply[reply]

There reads: It was discovered ... on August 14, 2002, though it went unnoticed until 2003.
"Went unnoticed until 2003"? They discovered it, but didn't realize it? I don't get it. 85.217.42.90 (talk) 04:17, 20 July 2013 (UTC)Reply[reply]

I didnt read the PDF .... i have trouble with densely typed text .... but perhaps they mean that they had it on images but didnt know it was a moon until they looked at enough to see that it was actually orbiting Neptune. though we should definitely choose better wording in any case.
