VIRTIS spectra of the Moon

VIRTIS spectra of the Moon

Date: 03 March 2005
Satellite: Rosetta
Depicts: Three lunar spectra
Copyright: ESA

Three spectra of three different regions on the Moon:

Blue = Kepler crater
Green = Mare Humorum
Red = Oceanus Procellarum

The spectra are uncorrected for the phase angle (variation with lambda).

Despite the low spatial resolution of the images it has been possible to distinguish between different regions of the lunar surface, namely the Highlands and the Maria, by their mineralogical differences.
