Preliminary results of the spectrophotometry of lunar details are given. The observations were carried out with the help of a quartz spectrograph and a horizontal telescope having a spherical mirror f 8 meters. It was found that the color contrasts are absent in most cases. Sometimes they amount to 10 to 15 percent and in rare cases reach 20 percent. The lunar cirques and mountain formations have reddish hues in comparison with the seas. The last are bluish-greenish but the Sea of Serenity and the Sea of Rains proved to be reddish. Author
