Halo orbits around Saturn J. E. Howard* and M. Horänyia laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics and Department of Physics, Campus Box 0392, University of Colorado, Boulder, CO 80309

We investigate the effects of planetary oblateness, quadrupole magnetic field, and solar radiation pressure on nonequatorial dust grain orbits about Saturn. Radiation pressure is found to be a strong perturber for small (« 100 nm) positively charged conducting grains.
