Abstract Photometric properties of 4 rings and 16 satellites of Uranus are presented, based on 41 Hubble Space Telescope images taken in 1997. Up to 25 filters per object covered the wavelength range 0.27–2 μm. The whole range of phase angles observable from Earth (0.03–3°) was probed. Reflectivities were calibrated on an absolute scale to typically 4% accuracy. Below 1 μm, derived geometric albedos of major satellites are typically 30% higher than previously reported due to previously… Expand
