The Sun and Earth passed through Saturn's ring plane in
1995 and 1996, providing a unique opportunity to observe
Saturn's faintest rings and smallest satellites. The edge-
on viewing geometry also permited direct observations of
the main rings' thickness, and the timing of satellite
eclipses and mutual events that can be used to improve
The Rings Node has prepared data sets from several of the
observations made during the RPX observing campaign. These
are summarized in the following table which also provides
