Campaign of observations of mutual events are organized regularly by the IMCCE: since 1979 for the PHEMU campaign of the Galilean satellites and since 1995 for the PHESAT campaign of the Saturnian satellites. These observations are useful in order to detect tidal effects in the planet and in the satellites because they lead to very accurate positions. We describe mutual events and the advantages of this kind of observations besides the classical astrometrical ones.
