Each giant planet of the Solar System has two main types of moons. ‘Regular’ moons are typically larger satellites with prograde, nearly circular orbits in the equatorial plane of their host planets at distances of several to tens of planetary radii. The ‘irregular’ satellites (which are typically smaller) have larger orbits with significant eccentricities and inclinations. Despite these common features, Neptune's irregular satellite system, hitherto thought to consist of Triton and Nereid, has… 
CAPTURE OF IRREGULAR SATELLITES DURING PLANETARY ENCOUNTERS
More than 90 irregular moons of the Jovian planets have recently been discovered. These moons are an enigmatic part of the solar system inventory. Their origin, which is intimately linked with the
IRREGULAR SATELLITES IN THE CONTEXT OF PLANET FORMATION
All four giant planets in the solar system possess irregular satellites, characterized by large, highly eccentric and/or highly inclined orbits. These bodies were likely captured from heliocentric
Irregular Satellites in the Context of Planet Formation
All four giant planets in the solar system possess irregular satellites, characterized by large, highly eccentric and/or highly inclined orbits. These bodies were likely captured from heliocentric
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
Irregular Satellites of the Planets: Products of Capture in the Early Solar System
All four giant planets in the Solar system possess irregular satellites, characterized by large, highly eccentric and/or inclined orbits that are distinct from the nearly circular, uninclined orbits
A Survey for ``Normal'' Irregular Satellites around Neptune: Limits to Completeness
We surveyed 1.75 deg2 of sky near Neptune to an R-band 50% detection efficiency of 25.8 mag (corresponding to radii of about 17 km for an assumed albedo of 0.04). We discovered one new outer
STABILITY OF THE DISTANT SATELLITES OF THE GIANT PLANETS IN THE SOLAR SYSTEM
We conduct a systematic survey of the regions in which distant satellites can orbit stably around the four giant planets in the solar system, using orbital integrations of up to 109 yr. In contrast
A Deep Search for Additional Satellites around the Dwarf Planet Haumea
Haumea is a dwarf planet with two known satellites, an unusually high spin rate, and a large collisional family, making it one of the most interesting objects in the outer solar system. A fully
Properties of the irregular satellite system around Uranus inferred from K2, Herschel and Spitzer observations
In this paper we present visible range light curves of the irregular Uranian satellites Sycorax, Caliban, Prospero, Ferdinand and Setebos taken with Kepler Space Telescope in the course of the K2
Studies of irregular satellites: I. Lightcurves and rotation periods of 25 Saturnian moons from Cassini observations
Abstract Disk-integrated time-resolved photometric observations have been performed for 25 irregular moons of Saturn with the ISS camera of the Cassini spacecraft in a wide range of solar phase

Discovery of two distant irregular moons of Uranus
The systems of satellites and rings surrounding the giant planets in the Solar System have remarkably similar architectures. Closest to each planet are rings with associated moonlets, then larger
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.
An abundant population of small irregular satellites around Jupiter
TLDR
The discovery of 23 new irregular satellites of Jupiter is reported, so increasing the total known population to 32 and showing five distinct satellite groups, each dominated by one relatively large body.
On the Inclination Distribution of the Jovian Irregular Satellites
Irregular satellites—moons that occupy large orbits of significant eccentricity e and/or inclination I—circle each of the giant planets. The irregulars often extend close to the orbital stability
Orbital and Collisional Evolution of the Irregular Satellites
The irregular moons of the Jovian planets are a puzzling part of the solar system inventory. Unlike regular satellites, the irregular moons revolve around planets at large distances in tilted and
Chaos-assisted capture of irregular moons
TLDR
It is shown that irregular satellites are captured in a thin spatial region where orbits are chaotic, and that the resulting orbit is either prograde or retrograde depending on the initial energy.
The discovery of faint irregular satellites of Uranus
We report the discovery of four new uranian irregular satellites in our deep, mR ∼ 25.4, optical search around that planet. The orbital properties of these satellites are diverse. Th ere is some
Neptune's Story
TLDR
It is conjectured that Triton was captured from a heliocentric orbit as the result of a collision with what was then one of Neptune's regular satellites, thus accounting for that satellite's highly eccentric and inclined orbit.
A Search for Distant Satellites of Neptune
The recent discovery of two distant satellites of Uranus suggests that there could be similar bodies orbiting Neptune. Previous surveys for distant satellites of Neptune have had relatively bright
Photometry of Irregular Satellites of Uranus and Neptune
We present BVR photometric colors of six Uranian and two Neptunian irregular satellites, collected using the Magellan Observatory (Las Campanas, Chile) and the Keck Observatory (Manua Kea, Hawaii).
