Two photoelectric records of the occultation event on 10 March, 1977, obtained by two 102-cm-aperture telescopes, spaced 1500 km apart, are critically analysed and indications of a complex structure of distribution of occulting material surrounding the planet are obtained. The results confirm the existence of a very shallow broad ring system with local condensation lanes of narrow and intermediate widths. A system of numerous thin rings are also present around the planet in the equatorial plane.
