Abstract

In this paper wie present preliminary scientific results obtained from the analysis of VIMS (Visible and Infrared Mapping Spectrometer) lunar images and spectra. These data were obtained during the Cassini Earth flyby in August 1999. Spectral ratios have been produced in order to derive lunar mineralogical maps. Some spectra observed at hte north-east lunar limb, show few unusual absorption features located at 0.357, 0.430 and 0.452 µm, the origin of which is presently unknown.
