The reverse problem of the Solar system atmosphereless body and satellite photometry is the determination of their shapes, dimensions, and reflective properties based on the observed light curves. In general, the solution of the problem is not unambiguous. To disambiguate it, the author used the physical simulation method for obtaining satellite surface spectral indicatrices. This paper describes spectral characteristics of some space object surfaces which make it possible to identify them by photometric and spectral observation results.
