The relationships are obtained, which connect the angular and spectral characteristics of radiation reflected by faces of ice particles with their concentration, size, and deflection of reflecting faces from the horizontal position (flutter). The paper describes the possibilities of the use of the mirror reflection for estimating the particle size and their orientation in the space.
