1 We present the first albedo determination of 2867 Steins, the asteroid target of the Rosetta space mission together with 21 Lutetia. The data were obtained in polarimetric mode at the ESO-VLT telescope with the FORS1 instrument in the V and R filters. Observations were carried out from June to August 2005 covering the phase angle range from 10.3 o to 28.3 o , allowing the determination of the asteroid albedo by the well known experimental relationship between the albedo and the slope of the… CONTINUE READING
