Abstract: Medium-resolution infrared (1-2.5 microns; Delta-lambda/lambda = 0.05) photometry of Triton, Titania, and Hyperion and medium-resolution (1.5-2.4 microns; Delta-lambda/lambda not greater than 0.01) spectroscopy of Triton are presented. Hyperion and Titania have spectra roughly similar to the laboratory spectrum of water frost, while the spectrum of Triton is inconsistent with the spectra of frosts likely to be major surface constituents.
