Satellites de Saturne I à VIII : configurations pour 2003

Abstract : The Institut de mécanique céleste (Bureau des longitudes) publishes each year in the Connaissance des Temps, the positions of the Planets, the Sun and the Moon as Chebyshev polynomials. Starting from 1996, this ephemeris gives also the positions of the satellites of Mars, of the Galilean satellites of Jupiter, of the first eight satellites of Saturn and of the five satellites of Uranus asmixed functions depending directly on the time. Several supplements to the Connaissance des Temps are also published and give: - the positions of the faint satellites of Jupiter (VI, VII, VIII, IX, X, XI, XII and XIII), of Phoebe (satellite IX of Saturn) as Chebyshev polynomials; - the configurations and the phenomena of the Galilean satellites of Jupiter; The present supplement gives the configurations and the phenomena of the first eight satellitesof Saturn in order to help the observers to identify those satellites. The precision of the curves allows an accuracy in the position of about 10 to 15 seconds of degree (n).
