Analysis of all available observations of faint objects near Saturn during the 1966 passage of the earth through the plane of Saturn's rings suggests the existence of at least one previously undiscovered satellite of Saturn. The data support the previously published orbit for Janus. These satellites may be major members of an extended ring.

The Tiny Satellites of Jupiter and Saturn and their Interactions with the Rings

The orbital status is reviewed for the very faint Jovian and Saturnian satellites discovered by the Voyager spacecraft and from the ground in recent years, with particular attention to observational

The dynamics of close planetary satellites and rings

The observational history and the evolving dynamical theories are reviewed for the rings of Saturn, Uranus, and Jupiter with particular emphasis on very recent results from the Voyager space

Photometric confirmation of the Encke division in Saturn's ring A

APPROXIMATELY once every 15 yr, it is possible to observe Saturn's satellite lapetus passing through the shadow of the rings. Observations of such events are of great value to studies of the optical

The Trapped Radiations of Saturn and Their Absorption by Satellites and Rings

The Pioneer 11 spacecraft encounter with Saturn (closest approach September 1, 1979) has resulted in the discovery of a fully developed magnetosphere with high-energy trapped radiation around Saturn,
