Satellites de Saturne I à VIII : configurations et Phénomènes pour 1997

Abstract : The Bureau des longitudes publishes each year in the Connaissance des Temps the positions of the planets, the Sun and the Moon as Chebychev polynomials. Starting 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 as mixed 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 (Vl, Vll, Vlll and IX), of Phoebe (satellite IX of Saturn)as Chebychev polynomials; - the configurations and the phenomena of the Galilean satellites of Jupiter. The present supplement gives the configurations of the first eight satellites of 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 ("). Besides these informations the present booklet gives the dates of phenomena (eclipses, occultations, transit in front of Saturn, transit of shadows). These phenomena occur every fifteen years.
