Excuse me, I am new of this forum.
First, hallo for everyone smile
I have appreciated so much the program Space Engine because it's very very realistic and suggestive, and for this I want to congratulate to the Creator of SE smile .
My problem is this: I saw that the satellites of planets Jupiter, Saturn and Uranus are not complete. In fact, if you visit the site of NASA, these are the links:
http://solarsystem.nasa.gov/planets....y=Sats;
http://solarsystem.nasa.gov/planets....y=Sats;
http://solarsystem.nasa.gov/planets....y=Sats;
You can see that Jupiter has 66 satellites in realty but SE shows only 63; Saturn has 62 satellites but SE shows only 31; and Uranus has 27 satellites but SE shows only 24. Even Celestia, that is more more elementary than SE, has all these satellites.
Why SE has this problem? There is a solution?
I thanks all for the answer, in advance, and I apologize for my english but I speak italian and I use google translate for my posts.

Sorry, I saw that the links, tha I have post, take you back to the homepage of the planet; you have to click on the "Moons", as indicated by the red arrow, for the satellites.

Some minor satellites are missing from SE. More will probably be added in future versions.

You can always add them yourself too. The files aren't very difficult to modify. There are plenty of tutorials on how to do it

Yes, fixing catalog mistakes and adding to incomplete ones is a great way to contribute to the program.

Well smile I worked hard today ... these are my results:
I compared the moons of Jupiter that appears in the list of NASA e the moons that appears in S.E., and I put the names in a excel file that I have attached to this post.
You may to see that there are 12 moons (they are highlighted in yellow) that in S.E. have the provisional name. Therefore I have changed these names with the officials and definitives names of NASA. I have modified the file "SmallMoons" that is in "data-catalogs-planets" folder.
Still, I realized that in S.E. missing 4 moons (always highlighted in yellow) that are discovered in 2010 e 2011.
I have put in the "SmallMoons" file the datas for these 4 moons but, unfortunately, I don't know the values of the differents parts sad . I have put in this post, also, 2 images where I show where the datas of 4 moons are placed: they are after the moon "2003J23".
PLEASE smile CAN YOU HELP ME WITH THE MISSING DATAS?????
I think that I did a good work for the members of this forum but for to complete this work I have need of your HELP smile
Thank's in advance for your answers smile
Bye smile
P.S. naturally, after, I'll to do this work even for the moons of the planets Saturn and Uranus, and I put in this forum the file updated.
