Abstract Time-resolved spectrophotometry of the Pluto-Charon system was obtained on 6 nigths in March and April of 1988. The observations include about one-third of the 6.4-day lightcurve, centered around minimum light, and span the wavelength region from 0.96 to 2.65 μm. The spectra reveal night-to-night variations in depths of methane absorptions throughout this region. Band depths vary such that their equivalent width is least near minimum light. One obvious interpretation is that dark… CONTINUE READING
