A series of light reflectivity measurements has been made on a variety of samples in a search for materials or surface textures which might reproduce the photometric properties of the lunar surface, particularly the pronounced rise of reflectivity at small phase angles. It has been found that most terrestrial substances, including standard diffusing surfaces, when observed with an instrument of small aperture, show a prominent rise in reflectivity if the direction of observation is within ±5… CONTINUE READING
