Abstract

The writer made 37 brightness measurements of Saturn + rings between Nov. 3, 2005 and March 16, 2006 using the B (blue), V (green), R (red), and I (infrared) filters. The selected normalized magnitudes of Saturn at a ring tilt angle of 18° are: B(1,0) = - 8.43 ± 0.03, V(1,0) = -9.48 ± 0.02, R(1,0) = -10.16 ± 0.04, and 1(1,0) = -10.28 ± 0.02. The selected phase angle coefficients of Saturn, in magnitudes/degree, are: cB = 0.022 ± 0.014, cV = 0.021 ± 0.008, cR = 0.027 ± 0.015, and cI = 0.018 ± 0.011.
