S/1995 S 1

On July 26, 1995, Amanda Bosh of Lowell Observatory announced the discovery of at least two and perhaps four new satellites of Saturn. The discovery was based upon images taken by the Hubble Space Telescope on May 22, 1995, when Saturn's rings were tilted edge-on to the Earth.
The last two of these satellites are considered to be new satellites, but the first two could be existing known satellites. The uncertainty is due to inaccurate ephermerides of Pan, Atlas and Prometheus. Satellite S/1995 S 1 could be Pan, and S/1995 2 could either be Atlas or Prometheus.
