Notes on Jovian Satellite Offsets


Tables of offset data for the Jovian satellites VI - XIII are presented. These tables can be used by an observer to compute the position of these satellites at any point in their orbits throughout the year.

Since the orbital periods of satellites VI - XIII range from just under one year to over two years, they move slowly relative to Jupiter. For these satellites, positional offsets are given as differences from Jupiter's position in right ascension (Da), given in minutes and seconds, and declination (Dd), given in arcminutes, for several dates throughout the year.
