Description

The purpose of this WG is to overhaul the theories of the motions of the satellites. The WG encourages theoretical studies, coordinates observations, and makes all data available to the user. The Working Group on Natural Planetary Satellites was created in 1973 at the IAU General Assembly in Sydney in order to overhaul the theories of the motions of the satellites. At the present, the motions of many of the natural satellites are not well-known, especially those recently discovered by the Voyager space probes. To promote the development of high-quality ephemerides, the Working Group encourages theoretical studies, coordinates observations, and makes all data available to the user.
