Observations made at Kavalur of the occultation of SAO158687 by Uranus on 10 March 1977 showed, in addition to the occultation by a satellite system termed the ε ring, a dimming of the light of the star close to the time when the atmosphere of the planet could have caused the phenomenon. Since then, the identities of the α, β, γ, δ rings have also become well established, and a theoretical interpretation of their origin has been proposed. We have closely examined the Kavalur photoelectric record and describe here several new features of the satellite ring system of Uranus.
