Untitled[edit]

Who's Walker? Who are Fountain and Larson? -- Zoe

English pronunciation [EP-uh-MEE-thee-us].

By analogy with Promethean, the adj. form is Epimethean (ep'-i-mee'-thee-un). kwami 2005 June 30 01:27 (UTC)


Please, check forQ Richard L. Walker Jr. (1938 - 2005) [1]

diameter[edit]

The NASA moons profile site give both these and another set of diameters on the same page. The other set is 144x108x98 km. Could someone with access to better data verify? kwami 09:55, 26 September 2005 (UTC)

shadow[edit]

I believe the shadow on the Voyager image is the F ring, but I'm going on memory here, and it's been a while since those pix came out! Please correct if I got it wrong. kwami 23:40, 18 December 2005 (UTC)

Next Closest Approach[edit]

The article gave the "next closest approach" as January 2006, which of course has already come and gone. I've temporarily switched it to give 2010, four years after the 2006 approach. It would be best if somebody who has the real numbers could fix it and give a more accurate time for the next closest approach. Joshua Nicholson 06:23, 12 June 2006 (UTC)

I know this thread is dead, but 2010 has also come and gone, now, and to say that the "next closest approach was in 2010" is a bit confusing at best. Perhaps someone could take a look at this article and update it with the moons' next closest approach, or give a regular interval (if such exists)? Wabbott9 Tell me about it.... 02:06, 29 June 2011 (UTC)

Horseshoe orbit?[edit]

The horseshoe orbit is mentioned in the text under the diagram, but not in the main body of the article. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 77.70.95.214 (talk) 21:15, 18 December 2009 (UTC)

Spoken Wikipedia recording[edit]

I've just uploaded an audio recording of the article. Please let me know if I've mispronounced anything. :-) --Mangst (talk) 02:36, 12 January 2010 (UTC)
