Data for the observers

In 2006-2007, the Earth and the Sun will pass through the orbital plane of the Uranian satellites. This occur only every 42 years and allow the occurrence of mutual events from 2006 to 2010. This type of observation has been performed since 1973 for the Galilean and the Saturnian satellites. Observations have been made and provide valuable data as astrometric (in order to validate the dynamical models of the system) as planetologic (physical structure of the surfaces of the satellites) mainly because we have observations over a long intervalle of time. These observations are difficult to make because of the faint brightness of the satellites (their magnitude is around 15). In order to help the observers, we propose documents below.

Local conditions of visibility for several sites.
