Satellites de Saturne I à VIII : configurations pour 1987

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. Several supplements to the Connaissance des Temps are also publi­shed and give:-the positions 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.-the positions of the faint satellites of Jupiter (VI, VII, VIII 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 (”).
