Abstract
Observations of Triton were made using the Faint Object Spectrograph on the Hubble Space Telescope in August of 1995. We present a visual spectrum of Triton between 3000 and 8500 Angstrom. Ne compare our measurements with pre vious observations and find that Triton's color in 1995 is consistent with its color at the time of the Voyager 2 flyby. (C) 1999 Academic Press.
