Satellites de Saturne I à VIII : phénomènes et Configurations pour 1996

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 satellites of Mars 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, Vll, VIlI 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 ofabout 10 to 15 seconds of degree ("). Besides these informations the present booklet gives the dates of phenomena (eclipses, occultation, transit in front of Saturn, transit of shadows) and the dates of mutual phenomena (the satellites eclipse and occult each other). These phenomena occur every fifteen years.
