CRUIKSHANK 2 Institute for Astronomy, University of Hawaii, Honolulu, Hawaii Received August 2, ; revised Septem New JHK photometry and spectrophotometry ( wm) are presented for Enceladus, Hyperion, Phoebe, Umbriel, Titania, and by: The infrared spectra of Uranus and Titan at cm/sup -1/ spectral resolution and of Neptune at 50 cm/sup -1/ spectral resolution are presented and analyzed. The spectra are dominated by strong methane absorptions, leaving only a few narrow windows for analysis. All spectra show strongly the effects of atmospheric scattering. While Saturn's rings consist mainly of water ice with a small admixture of organics and other contaminants (Nicholson et al, ), the rings of Jupiter, Uranus and Neptune contain at .

In astronomy, an irregular moon, irregular satellite or irregular natural satellite is a natural satellite following a distant, inclined, and often eccentric and retrograde have been captured by their parent planet, unlike regular satellites, which formed in orbit around lar moons have a stable orbit, unlike temporary satellites which often have similarly irregular orbits. Uranus - Uranus - Basic astronomical data: At Uranus’s distance from the Sun, the planet takes slightly more than 84 Earth years, essentially an entire human life span, to complete one orbit. The eccentricity of its orbit is low—that is, its orbit deviates little from a perfect circle—and the inclination of the orbit to the ecliptic—the plane of Earth’s orbit and nearly the plane of. Abstract. Three satellites of Jupiter, seven satellites of Saturn, and five satellites of Uranus show spectroscopic evidence of H 2 O ice on their surfaces, although other details of their surfaces are highly diverse. The icy surfaces contain contaminants of unknown composition in varying degrees of concentration, resulting in coloration and large differences in by: The planet Jupiter has a system of rings known as the rings of Jupiter or the Jovian ring was the third ring system to be discovered in the Solar System, after those of Saturn and was first observed in by the Voyager 1 space probe and thoroughly investigated in the s by the Galileo orbiter. It has also been observed by the Hubble Space Telescope .
