The Sun and Earth pass through Uranus' ring plane in 2007 and 2008,
providing a unique opportunity to observe Uranus' rings and
smallest satellites. The edge-on viewing geometry also permits the timing
of satellite eclipses and mutual events that can be used to improve ephemerides.
The PDS Rings Node intends to archive as much of the HST and
highest quality ground based URPX as is made available. Observers
interested in archiving data should contact Mark Showalter or Mitch Gordon.
We will post links to data as it becomes available.
The Rings Node On-Line Tools are
available for visualizing the changing geometry and assisting with
Links to external Uranus RPX & Equinox web sites.
The International Outer Planet Watch Uranus and Neptune Discipline includes
information on the planning for an international campaign of
Uranian observations, the report from the 2006 'Uranus at Equinox'
Pasadena Workshop, and several additional links.
The Institut de Mécanique Céléste et de Calcul des
Ephémérides (IMCCE) web
site includes detailed information, software tools, and
predictions of Uranian satellite mutual events as well as
several additional links.
