Planetary Satellites. In , the planets were known to have 22 satellites or moons. The number of known moons has now more than quadrupled and is still increasing. Discovery of the Satellites of Mars. The scientists of Laputa "discovered two lesser stars, or satellites, which revolve about Mars; whereof the innermost is distant from the. A favorable review of Planets and Satellites, edited by G. P. Kuiper and Barbara M. Middlehurst (University of Chicago Press, ). The subjects treated in the book range from the appearance of the earth, as seen from an observation post in space, to the appearance of the moon and other planets.
The reason why some planets of satellites is because there are some planets that are capable of hosting many types of species (ie earth). There will be a more dominant species on that planet and. One more satellite, discovered in , is yet to be named. URANUS. Uranus was named for the Greek god of the sky. The astronmer William Lassell, who discovered two of Uranus' satellites in , started the tradition of naming all of the planet's satellites for characters in the work of William Shakepseare and Alexander Pope.
Planets are satellites of stars, and there are smaller "satellite galaxies" that border or orbit larger galaxies such as the Milky Way. The word moons refers to satellites of planets, dwarf. among the inner planets. Rocks and soil brought back from the Moon bear remarkable similarity to Earth materials. Even spacecraft pictures of the outer planet satellites, many of which are planets themselves by virtue of their size, have astounded scientists with their exotic, but recognizable surfaces. The American geologist T. C. Chamberlain.

Inge and R. Batson. Planetary Mapping describes the history and process of mapping planets and satellites beyond the Earth. Mapping planetary bodies is a unique process much different from ordinary terrestrial cartography. The book begins with an introduction to the differences between terrestrial and planetary mapping and continues with a general discussion of the history of planetary mapping.
The solar system boasts a population of eight planets, five dwarf planets, dozens of satellites and countless small solar-system bodies.
The charts below list a few properties of the planets and their named satellites. Although the innermost six planets of the solar system were known from antiquity, Uranus was discovered in by W. Herschel. Display and interpret current geographical information with frequent imagery feeds.

Two moons in the Solar System are larger than the planet Mercury (though less massive): Ganymede and Titan, and seven are larger and more massive than the dwarf planet Pluto. The concept of satellite planets – the idea that planetary-mass objects. knowledge of planet and moon brightness.
A computer subroutine has been written to calculate the Johnson and Morgan (Ref. 1) visual (V), blue (B), and ultraviolet (U) photometric magnitudes of the planets, all their known natural satellites, and the sun.
isual The visual magnitude of a planet or satellite is given by: 1 V = V(1,O) +Author: G. Pace. This comprehensive volume summarises current understanding of the Jovian system, in the light of recent scientific results from the Galileo spacecraft, the Galileo probe, the Cassini spacecraft, the Hubble Space Telescope, and numerous ground-based and theoretical studies.
Chapters are written by leading authorities in the field and cover all aspects of Jupiter, its satellites and s: 1. Welcome to Satellite Map. This application maps the current location of ab manmade objects orbiting the Earth.
Use the Preset dropdown menu to conveniently select a subset of satellites, for example, Russian or low earth orbit satellites. Selected satellites are colored red.

Natural Satellites 4. Mercury: the innermost planet 5. Planetary satellites are small bodies in orbit about a planet (actually the planet's system barycenter).
Probably the best known planetary satellite is Earth's moon. Currently, we know of no satellites in orbit around Mercury or Venus. All the other planets have at least one known planetary satellite. Some of the examples of natural satellites are planets, moons, and comets.
Jupiter has 67 natural satellites. The earth has one permanent natural satellite, the moon we know, which causes the tides in the sea. Sometimes other objects (like asteroids) can enter into temporary orbits of the earth and become a natural satellite for a span.
The Astrogeology Science Center's mission includes producing planetary maps and cartographic products which reveal topography, geology, topology, image mosaics and more, all made available to the international scientific community and the general public as a national resource.

In addition to its wealth of visual detail, The Planets also details essential facts in fresh, colorful infographics, timelines that track our relationship with each planet, and a directory that contains the must-know information about major Solar System objects and space missions.
Chapters on each planet and obj/5(). The Solar System's planets, and its most likely dwarf planets, are known to be orbited by at least natural satellites, or moons.
19 of them are large enough to be gravitationally rounded; of these, all are covered by a crust of ice except for Earth's Moon and Io. Several of the largest ones are in hydrostatic equilibrium and would therefore be considered dwarf planets or planets if they.
Star Maps for Beginners 50th Ed., by Levitt and Marshall: satellite. The charts also include the locations, orientations, and aspect ratios of 8, galaxies. a unique feature of this book is the detailed map in 76 sections of the near side of the Moon.
Overview. The many spacecraft which have been sent since the s to explore all the planets in the solar system, some quite extensively (with the exception of Pluto, which technically is no longer a planet), have provided a wealth of data which have been used to create ever more accurate surface maps of the terrestrial planets and satellites of the solar system.Provides directions, interactive maps, and satellite/aerial imagery of many countries.
Can also search by keyword such as type of business.The satellites of the giant outer planets are a surprisingly diverse group of bodies. Most are composed of mixtures of water and other ices, including most likely ammonia ice, and rocky material.
An amazing variety of unusual and spectacular geologic features are observed on these satellites, including active volcanism on two of them, which are.
