Euporie (pronounced /juːˈpɔrɨi/ ew-POR-ə-ee, /juːˈpɔriː/ ew-POR-ee, or as in Greek Ευπορία), also known as Jupiter XXXIV, is a natural satellite of Jupiter. It was discovered by a team of astronomers from the University of Hawaii led by Scott S. Sheppard in 2001, and given the temporary designation S/2001 J 10.
Euporie is about 2 kilometres in diameter, and orbits Jupiter at an average distance of 19,088 Mm in 538.780 days, at an inclination of 145° to the ecliptic (145° to Jupiter's equator), in a retrograde direction and with an eccentricity of 0.0960.
It was named in August 2003 after Euporie, a Greek goddess of abundance and one of the Horae in Greek mythology (and thus a daughter of Zeus).
It is the innermost member of the Ananke group, retrograde irregular moons which orbit Jupiter between 19.3 and 22.7 Gm, at inclinations of roughly 150°.
