Every three years the IAU/IAG Working Group on Cartographic Coordinates and Rotational Elements revises tables giving the directions of the poles of rotation and the prime meridians of the planets, satellites, minor planets, and comets. This report introduces improved values for the pole and rotation rate of Pluto, Charon, and Phoebe, the pole of Jupiter, the sizes and shapes of Saturn satellites and Charon, and the poles, rotation rates, and sizes of some minor planets and comets. A high… Expand

Report of the IAU Working Group on Cartographic Coordinates and Rotational Elements: 2015
TLDR
This report continues the practice where the IAU Working Group on Cartographic Coordinates and Rotational Elements revises recommendations regarding those topics for the planets, satellites, minor planets, and comets approximately every 3 years, and recommends that planning and efforts be made to make controlled cartographic products.

Planetary Science: A new spin on Saturn
TLDR
The Cassini orbiter provided a detailed map of Saturn's magnetic field, and this has been used to identify an oscillation in the magnetic field with a well-defined period of about 10 hours 47 minutes, suggesting that the stability of this periodicity over 14 months of observation suggests that it is related to the rotation ofSaturn's interior.
