Voyager 1 and 2: Atlas of Six Saturnian Satellites
by Raymond M. Batson
Publisher: NASA 1984
Number of pages: 175
Published in 1984 after several years of photographic analysis, this large format book presents maps of the six Saturnian moons which were investigated by the Voyager 1 and 2 spacecraft during their flyby missions of Saturn in 1980 and 1981, respectively. The maps, compiled with data gathered primarily by the two spacecraft, are presented to show the diversity that exists among six of the Saturnian moons.

The Solar System consists of the Sun and its planetary system of eight planets, their moons, and other non-stellar objects. It formed 4.6 billion years ago from the collapse of a molecular cloud. The majority of the system's mass is in the Sun...
