Abstract

A correction to the Galilean satellite ephemerides indicated by the observations of 1973 mutual eclipse and occultation phenomena acts to reduce significantly the discrepancy between the dynamical oblateness of Jupiter measured by spacecraft and the optical oblateness measured by the 1971 β Sco occultations.
