POSSIBLE MAGNITUDE VARIATIONS OF SATURN'S SATELLITES

by K.E. Chilton, Planetary Coordinator

For many years it has been known that he magnitude of Iapetus, Saturn's outermost moon, is variable. Recent observations have indicated that some of the other moons may vary in brightness, too. (Refs. 1,2) This was pointed out in Planetary Bulletin No.9. However, observers were left ot their own devices to work out the positions of the satellites.

The date of this document is unknown.

The craters and mountains of the moon, the rings of Saturn and the moons and belts of Jupiter can easily be seen with a simple, inexpensive telescope of your own making. Making a telescope does not need to be an expensive or time-consuming project, although if you are interested in making serious scientific observations, then, of course, it is better to build a more costly reflecting telescope.

BLACK HOLES: A MYSTERY OF THE UNIVERSE

By K.E. Chilton
93 Currie St.,
Hamilton, Ont.

Black holes! The very name conjures up a mystery! What is at the bottom of the hole? What causes a black hole ? What would happen if you fell into one? These questions and others provide one of the greatest mysteries of our Universe, one which has attracted much space in the newspapers, and one which has caused much discussion among astronomers.

by K.E. Chilton

Is the Moon a cold, lifeless, changeless body? Or, are there changes from time to time? Recently, there has been much interest in amateur astronomical circles, in investigating changes on the Moon which seem to be of a transitory or impermanent nature.

This was written to augment a talk by Robert G. Speck to the Discussion Group of the Hamilton Centre of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada on April 22, 1976.

PRE-MARINER FINDINGS

Three main cloud types have been distinguished in the thin, dry, cold Martian atmosphere: white, blue and yellow clouds, so named for the colours which they predominantly reflect.

White Clouds:

White clouds vary considerably in thickness, brilliance and extent. They can be subdivided into three categories:

by K.E. Chilton, Hamilton Centre

For several years, the author has corresponded with Prof. J.M.L. da Silva of the State College of Parana, Curitiba, Brazil, about the variable star RX Lepporis. We agreed that certain of our visual observations were in doubt because of certain irregularities in the published magnitude sequence for stars on the comparison chart, AAVSO chart 050001 W Ori.
