Colors of Irregular Satellites of Saturn with the Dark Energy Camera

We report g − r and r − i new colors for 21 Saturn Irregular Satellites; among them, four previously unreported. This is the highest number of Saturn Irregular satellites reported in a single survey.

Colors and Shapes of the Irregular Planetary Satellites

It is widely recognized that the irregular satellites of the giant planets were captured from initially heliocentric orbits. However, the mechanism of capture and the source region from which they

Probing the origin of the dark material on Iapetus

Among the icy satellites of Saturn, Iapetus shows a striking dichotomy between its leading and trailing hemispheres, the former being significantly darker than the latter. Thanks to the Visual and

Estimates of the physical parameters of remote planetary satellites

Since 1998, 97 new remote satellites of Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, and Neptune have been discovered. Since their brightness is rather weak, it is difficult to perform their photometry and determine

THE COLORS OF EXTREME OUTER SOLAR SYSTEM OBJECTS

Extreme outer solar system objects have possible origins beyond the Kuiper Belt edge, high inclinations, very large semimajor axes, or large perihelion distances. Thirty-three such objects were

NEOWISE: OBSERVATIONS OF THE IRREGULAR SATELLITES OF JUPITER AND SATURN

We present thermal model fits for 11 Jovian and 3 Saturnian irregular satellites based on measurements from the WISE/NEOWISE data set. Our fits confirm spacecraft-measured diameters for the objects

Evidence for a Recent Collision in Saturn’s Irregular Moon Population

Using CFHT imaging data, we searched a 1.1 deg2 field on each side of Saturn down to magnitude m w ≃ 26.3, corresponding to diameters of D ≃ 3 km. We detected 120 objects, which were comoving with

New orbits of irregular satellites designed for the predictions of stellar occultations up to 2020, based on thousands of new observations

Gomes-Junior et al. (2015) published 3613 positions for the 8 largest irregular satellites of Jupiter and 1787 positions for the largest irregular satellite of Saturn, Phoebe. These observations were

Irregular Satellites of the Giant Planets

The irregular satellites of the outer planets, whose population now numbers over 100, are likely to have been captured from heliocentric orbit during the early period of solar system history. They

The Dark Side of Iapetus: Additional Evidence for an Exogenous Origin

The saturnian satellite Iapetus presents one of the most unusual appearances of any object in the Solar System: one hemisphere is about 10 times as bright as the other. The origin of the dark

Unraveling the Zebra: Clues to the Iapetus Dark Material Composition

Abstract A linear mixing model has been used to separate the high-resolution visible/near-infrared reflectance spectrum of the _Iapetus dark material from the spectra of the leading and trailing

Discovery of 12 satellites of Saturn exhibiting orbital clustering

TLDR
The discovery of 12 irregular satellites of Saturn is reported, along with the determinations of their orbits, indicating that most of the irregular moons are collisional remnants of larger satellites that were fragmented after capture, rather than being captured independently.
