  • We have searched for H2O 6(1,6)–5(2,3) maser emission at 22.235 GHz from several Saturnian satellites with the Nobeyama 45m radio telescope in 2009 May. Objects of our observation are Titan, Hyperion, Enceladus, and Atlas, from which Pogrebenko et al. (2009, A&A, 494, L1) reported having detected water masers at 22.235 GHz, and in addition are Iapetus and other inner satellites. We detected no emission of the water-maser line from all of the satellites observed, although the sensitivities of… CONTINUE READING
