About the General Meeting Presentation

This is a continuation on the topic of Astrogeology and Geological Sciences on the major satellites that orbit the Gas and Icy Giant planets that reside within the outer solar system. Last month's discussion was focused solely on the latest scientific theories and discoveries on the Galilean Satellites (Io, Europa, Ganymede, and Callisto) that orbit continuously the planet Jupiter. This coming talk will be a final continuation on the topic starting with the seven major moons of Saturn (Part II) along with a short overview of the major moons of Uranus (six in all) along with Triton & Proteus, the two major moons of Neptune.

The talk is limited to the moons of what we now refer to as the Classical Planets.
