Astronomy 161 - Introduction to Solar System Astronomy - Autumn 2007

All Jovian planets have rings. We are most familiar with the bright,

spectacular rings of Saturn, but the other Jovian planets have rings

systems around them. This lecture describes the different ring systems

and their properties, and discusses their origin, formation, and the

gravitational interactions - resonances, perturbations, and shepherd

moons - that govern their evolution. Recorded 2007 Nov 21 in 1000
