S/2002 J 1 Further to IAUCs 7555 and 7900, S. S. Sheppard reports the discovery of another satellite of Jupiter with the 2.2-m reflector at Mauna Kea. The astrometry is given on MPEC 2002-Y22, along with orbital elements by B. G. Marsden showing this to be another retrograde satellite (i = 163 deg, P = 748.5 days, H = 15.7).
