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 Irregular Satellites of Saturn Tilmann Denk

The outer or irregular moons of Saturn are a class of objects that is very distinct from the other satellites treated in this book. It not only has more objects (38 are presently known) than the

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

The Irregular Satellites: The Most Collisionally Evolved Populations in the Solar System

The known irregular satellites of the giant planets are dormant comet-like objects that reside on stable prograde and retrograde orbits in a realm where planetary perturbations are only slightly

Pluto's Lightcurve: Results from Four Oppositions

Abstract The rotational lightcurve, phase function, and orbital lightcurve of the Pluto-Charon system were measured in blue light over four consecutive oppositions spanning 1980 to 1983. Compared

Phoebe: Albedo Map and Photometric Properties

Using clear-filter images from Voyager 2 (effective wavelength 0.48 μm), we have constructed the first-ever digital albedo map of Saturn's moon Phoebe. Most normal reflectances in this new map are

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
