2 Bodies Appulse
#3
Greg,
First, I am looking at this because I am helping Larry Mitchell develop the TSP Advanced list. The subject is Bernard objects. Bernard discovered Iapetus, so Larry wants to put this on the list of objects.

What I am trying to find is where Iapetus is during TSP in relation to Saturn. Specifically the RA/Dec. When I pulled up the Info box for Saturn on each day of TSP, there was the PA and distance of Iapetus and a handful of moons. That helps. If I remember (I'm not at home but at our observing site doing work, not observing with the moon out) and I don't have access to my XLS I created. But I think the distance from the Info box was way less than 1 degree, so I expected the Appulses to show up.

As for making the search period longer, I just want it for the TSP week.

FYI, also going on the list, maybe, is Amalthea and Phobos/Diemos at Eastern/Western elongations.

Hope that explains why I am looking at this.
Thanks Greg,
Steve
