2018-Jan-01 UT 00:00-00:56 Ill=98% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1979-10-4

     On 1979 Oct 04 at UT21:05-23:40 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK, 12" reflector, 
     x360, seeing=II) detected colour in Aristarchus (and also in Bullialdus 
     - there was a TLP alert at this time for Bullialdus) but nowehere else 
     on the Moon. Aristarchus had a CED brightness value of 3.8 at 21:05 
     (though at this time no colour) and 3.4 at 23:40 and the floor was now 
     slate blue/gray in colour. Other features remained constant in 
     brightness. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=72 and the weight=0. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jan-01 UT 00:00-00:02 Ill=98% Bullialdus observed by Robinson_JH on 1979-10-4

     Bullialdus 1979 Oct 04 UT 20:24-21:25 JH-Robinson (Devon, UK, 
     260mm Newt. x200 Seeing Antoniadi IV-V, Transp.=haze) observed a two 
     bright points on the south west floor patch to be brighter in red than 
     in blue at 21:12. The effect was still present at 20:36 but back to 
     normal by 20:43-20:48. Amery (Reading, UK) found a possible brownish 
     tinge on the west wall, though spuroius colour was present elsewhere on 
     the Moon. Foley found the WSW corner darkened in blue light. Cook found 
     pink on south rim of Bullialdus and Pedler found Bullialdus to be a 
     confused mass with bright and dusky spots and patches - no colour seen.
     Cameron 2006 catalog ID=72 and weight=0. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jan-01 UT 01:05-02:46 Ill=98% Aristarchus observed by Schroter on 1788-4-19

     Near Aristarchus 1788 Apr 19 UT 20:00? Observed by Schroter 
     (Lilienthal, Germany) Event described as: "Small area very

2018-Jan-01 UT 02:59-04:04 Ill=99% Lichtenberg observed by Hill_H on 1988-4-1

     On 1988 Apr 01 atUT01:15-03:20 H.Hill (Lancaster, UK, 10" reflector, 
     x286) observed that east of Lichtenberg were ëxtensive rosy areas" 
     around the northern edge of the lava sheet. Hill believes that it may 
     have been the same effect as seen by Madler (Germany), Barcroft (USA) 
     and Baum's (UK) 1951 observation. The colour was "ünmistakable" and 
     nothing to do with the atmospheric spurious colour. Other features were 
     checked. the cameron 2006 catalog ID=322 and the weight=3. THe ALPO/BAA 
     weight=2. 


2018-Jan-01 UT 03:36-03:38 Ill=99% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1976-1-15

     Aristarchus 1976 Jan 15 UT 19:30-20:50 Observed by P.W. Foley 
     (Kent, UK, 12" reflector) - Aristarchus was abnormally bright 
     (Cameron suspects that this is a confirmation an explosion 
     effect seen earlier by Greenland: "On 1976 Jan 15 at 19:45Ut 
     Greenland (Crawley, UK, 7x50 binooculars) thought that they 
     saw an "explosion" on the Moon (in the general region of 
     Aristarchus) for a fraction of a second, followed by a bright 
     spot in the same position (not an astronomer). After 
     discussions with others, decided it was a moment of transition 
     to greater intensity (better seeing?). Moore thinks it was 
     atmospheric but says it should be on record. Cmeron's 1978 
     catalog ID=1425 and weight=5". For the Foley report: Cameron 
     1978 catalog TLP ID=1427 and weight=5. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     seeing=III) was able to see 4 craterlets and two rays on the floor of 
     Plato. This was suprising because Moore, using a larger telescope and 
     magnification, was unable to see any detail here on 1991 Dec 12th at 
     02:10 - according to Cameron. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=438 and the

2018-Jan-03 UT 02:01-03:58 Ill=98% Hahn observed by Hazel_N on 2012-1-9

     On 2012 Jan 09 UT 21:01-21:08 Hahn crater was imaged by N. Hazel 
     (Beverley, Yorkshire, UK, Nikon D7000 with 70-300 zoom at max, 
     with 2x teleconverter, at f9, 1/320 sec, ISO 400 – tripod 
     mounted, mirror up), A series of images were taken. The 21:06 one 
     showed a grey column cutting across the central floor of the 
     crater from the west and then bisecting the eastern rim. All 
     detail inside is completely invisble. Some (but not all) of the 
     other images showed a more blurred view of this feature. It's 
     possible that this was a seeing ripple effect, or just the 
     natural appearance of shadings on the Moon at this time, however 
     for now this will be given an ALPO/BAA weight of 1.

     2045 reflector, x40, seeing=turbulent) detected flashes coming from 
     just north of the centre of Mare Tranquilitatis. Some of these flashes 
     were of a duration of seconds whilst others were several minutes. 
     Altogether ~20 flashes were seen, and not in the same place. "5 small 
     star-like points could be located - and there were lots of craterlets". 
     The spots were "lined up E-W at N of 10 deg latitude." Colour was not

     telescope, x130, seeing=III) managed to see the central craterlet in 
     Plato and an unnamed one north west of Mons Pico. Cameron comments - 
     "were this & No. 429 LTP or just good seeing?)." Note it is possible 
     that she mean LTP 439 in which case it would refer to the previous 
     nights TLP. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=439 and the weight=2. The

     magnitude in 2.5 hours - a photometric measurement. The average 
     magnitude for this age is 4.03, so therefore the crater had brightened 
     by two times above normal. The Cameron 1978 catalogID=769 and the

     it easily. At 01:33UT the colour was barely visible. No TLP alert was 
     issued because the souther edge of Mons Pico also exhibited a hint of 
     colour, and anyway the seeing conditions were poor. Despite this no 
     other features revealed colour. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=446 and the 
     weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     No other features revealed colour apart from Aristarcus, where a TLP 
     was going on. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=446 and the weight=0. The

2018-Jan-04 UT 08:28-09:57 Ill=93% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1983-10-23

     Aristarchus 1983 Oct 23 UT 19:00-01:30 Observer: Foley (Kent, UK, 
     12" reflector, seeing=II) noiced at 19:00UT an extended bright 
     spot on E wall and extending beyond. This was brighter than other 
     areas of the crater. There was also occasional star-like 
     glistening. Foley comments that the inside of Aristarchus was 
     slightly obscured. The TLP started fading from UT20:30 and 
     finished by 01:30UT. six out of nine independent observers 
     confirmed the effects seen. In total 14 observers observed, 9 
     reported back and 6 found abnormalities in Aristarcus though all 
     encountered variable seeing conditions - some had spurious 
     colour. Cameron comments that this was one of the best 
     recorded/confirmed TLP events. All CED brightness measurements 
     obtained were very high. Moore, Nicolson and Clarke (5" refractor 
     and 15" reflector, 230-350xseeing III) found the crater to be 
     very bright at 19:11UT through a 5" refractor and there was a 
     blob on the east rim (Bartlet's EWBS?) at 19:14UT. Nicolson also 
     saw a very bright star-like area on the eastern wall but this was 
     not defined as it usually is. The crater was also very bright at 
     22:43UT using the 15" reflector available to these observers. At 
     01:07UT they used a Moon blink and discovered that the bright 
     region was bright in blue light and less bright in red - although 
     this was not a detactable blink when switching rapidly between 
     filters. They found that the crater had returned to normal by 
     01:15UT. M.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, seeing III-IV) observed a large 
     diffuse spot on the east of the crater that was brighter in blue 
     than in red light and the CED device gave a high reading. J.D. 
     Cook (Frimley, UK, seeing III-IV) made a skecth that showed the 
     bright spot extended on the east wall - again the CED reading was 
     high and a lot of detail was visible on the floor. A.C. Cook 
     (Frimley, UK, seeing III-IV) also noted remarkable detail and the 
     bright (as confirmed by CED) blob on the eastern rim. G. North 
     (Sussex, UK, seeing III-II) also confirmed the bright blob on the 
     eastern wall. Wooller found the north west wall was a dirty 
     yellow colour - though no colour was seen elsewhere in or outside 
     the crater. Mosely found the crater to be bright and his sketch 
     revealed the extension of the bright blob on the eastern rim and 
     again a great deal of interior detail. Amery (Reading, UK, seeing 
     III) found Aristarchus to be "a brilliant splash against dulled 
     background in violet filter, especially polarizing filter. CED + 
     polarizer readings high, but not as high as previous night". 
     Mobberley (Suffolk, UK, seeing III-IV) remarked that "spurious 
     colour a total mess around Aristarchus & nothing abnormal seen". 
     A photograph was taken at 20:50UT reveals the  bright blob and 
     entire detail. Peters (Kent, UK, seeingIII-II) observed  
     Aristarchus with a UV screen from 20:15-21:23UT and comented that 
     althogh being very bright, there was no variation between white 
     and UV. It was checked with a Moon Blink device and the radial 
     bands were  clearly seen in white light, < in blue. The Cameron 
     2008 catalog ID=233 and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=4.

     Proclus C region 1985 May 23 UT 17:41 Photographed by Kolovos (observer 
     from Thessoloniki, Greece, observing site near Bafra Serrain, Greece, 
     4"refractor, seeing excellent) "Observer took a series of expousres on 
     a portable scope of the Moon. On one of them a very bright slightly 
     elliptical spot was seen. Spot was very close to the Proclus C crater. 
     Upon analysis it was claimed that the spot of light had rotated the 
     direction of illumination of shadows in adjacent craters - however 
     subsequent analysis casts doubt on this. Papers on this report
     were published in Icarus. Rast and Maley suggested that it was sun 
     glint off a spinning US ex-military weather satellite that just by 
     chance came across the field of view of the Moon a few tens of seconds 
     around the time of the photographed flash. Was this a coincidence or
     not? If it were a satellite sun-glint then the satellite would have to 
     be tumbling incredibly fast in order for the flash to be so sharp in 
     the photograph - so the satellite explanation is not completely 100% 
     confirmed." The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=273 and the weight=5. The

     reflector, x96) observed in Aristarchus crater, in Earthshine, a 
     dull glow -- silvery phosphorescence.This was not visible for 30

2018-Jan-22 UT 00:17-01:30 Ill=21% Aristarchus observed by Eastman on 1965-10-30

     On 1965 Oct 30 at UT 0200 Eastman (Palos Verdes, CA, USA, 12" 
     reflector) observed a brightening in Aristarchus in ashen light. The 
     photographs that were taken show it. The phenomenon was seen each 
     lunation since July. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=908 and weight=5. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Jan-22 UT 01:13-01:39 Ill=21% Montes_Recti observed by Smith_G on 2009-3-1

     On 2009 Mar 01 at UT 18:50-21:00 G. Smith (East Yorkshire, UK, 127mm 
     Maksutov Cassegrain telescope with zoom eyepiece and later a Plossl 
     eyepiece) observed an area between Plato and Sinus Iridum to be glowing 
     as a bright nebulous patch. It was brighter than anything else in 
     Eartshine. A change in eyepiece did not affect the appearance of the 
     nebulous patch. The patch had faded somewhat by 21:00UT. The observers 
     brother attempted to observe the patch through a 114mm reflector at 
     20:30UT but the optics were of poor quality and the effect was not 
     seen. BAA observers were alerted, but only after the event had faded - 
     they made observations from 22:00-23:46 UT but failed to detect 
     anything unusual in the region concerned. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.
     This may have been a mis-identification with Aristarchus - however 
     we cannot be 100% sure.


2018-Jan-22 UT 01:37-01:39 Ill=21% Aristarchus observed by Gridley on 1965-7-4

     In 1965 Jul 04 at UT 03:53-05:59 Gridley, Welch (West Covina, CA, USA, 
     4.5" and 8" reflector, seeing=excellent), Albert (CA, 8" reflector, 
     x375) and Emanuel (8" reflector) observed star-like flashes in 
     Aristarchus crater. Cameron says this confirmed and that the date 
     in MBMW is 7/3/65 which is local time = 4th UT also but is in error due 
     to misreading of handwriting. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=883 and

     10" reflector, x150, seeing=IV-V) could not distinguish between Messier 
     and Messier A. The tail of these features was very bright - two 
     telescopes were used. Moore (Selsey, UK, 12" reflector, seeing=III) 
     could see Messier A but found Messier itself obscured - just see the 
     west wall and thought that the comet like tail was unusual as it did 
     not appear divided. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=192 and weight=5. The

     Lancashire, UK, 76mm f/16 refractor, x170, Wratten 25, and 44a 
     Moon blink filters used, Transparency 4.5/5, no wind, S=F). The 
     west flank of Maginus, and the interior, appeared to be partly 
     obscured. No other features in a similar position along the 
     terminator were obscured. No colour blink was detected with the 
     filters, though a pronounced red/white light blink was noted; the 
     device employed a N.D. x4 filter. By 21:45UT the floor was no 
     longer obscured and only Magninus G was masked in a white haze; 
     however immediately adjacent to the terminator was an ill defined 
     misty patch lying where the outer flank of maginus would have 
     been visible. The rest of the terminator was sharp. The 
     obscuration was only seen to advantage in blue and int. light, 
     and the blue/int blink was only very slight. Findlay and 
     McDonnell observed 21:30-23:00 using a 25cm refractor (Seeing II-

     77mm refractor, x83,x250, seeing II-III, transparency fair). 
     After studying the whole length of this valley, the observer saw 
     a change in "albedo" and a small change in colour of the valley 
     floor near to the Plato end. This colour was not seen in a 
     yellow Wratten 15 filter but was noted in a purple Wratten 35

     On 1979 Sep 29 at UT10:00-12:00 S. Turner (Maryborough, Australia) 
     observed a strong beacon like flash in white light that moved back and 
     forth in the east wall of Plato (very bright) and Mons Pico. tried 
     changing eyepiece and the field of view, but this wasn't the cause of 
     the effect. A check at 11:07UT did not show the effect, but it was back 
     again by 11:18UT being more pronounced at Mons Pico than the east wall 
     of Plato. SSW of Mons Pico was also blinking slightly. At 11:32 the 
     blinking effect was irregular 5-10 sec and this continued until 
     12:00UT. Cameron 2006 catalog ID=71 and weight=0 but she suggests

     of Plato. SSW of Mons Pico was also blinking slightly. At 11:32 the 
     blinking effect was irregular 5-10 sec and this continued until 
     12:00UT. Cameron 2006 catalog ID=71 and weight=0 but she suggests 
     atmospheric scintillation as a cause. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     Archimedes 1971 Aug 01 UT 22:00(?) (19:00 originally given 
     probably local time) Miranda (Plaui, Brazil, 4" refractor, 
     x80) observed two grooves going from east to west, broadening 
     towards the west, across Archimedes. A drawing was supplied. 
     Apparently this was the first time that this was ever seen. 
     Cameron suggests rays? and also says that in fact a similar 
     phenomenon reported before in neasrly the same position 
     (Apollo 15 watch?). The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1303 and 
     weight=2. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     On 1882 May 27 ay UT 20:00 an unknown observer (10" reflector) saw a 
     bright luminous ray near west (astronomical?) wall on floor of Plato. 
     Cameron suggests sunlight between peaks?. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=
     233 and weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     On 1994 Apr 21 at UT 06:00 W, Cameron (Sedona, USA) detected a reddiah 
     colour on Pronontorium Laplace, This is TLP event No. 9 in the ALPO 
     Clementine LTP program Nov 1994. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Jan-27 UT 05:04-05:43 Ill=74% Sinus_Iridum observed by Manske_R on 1987-10-3

     On 1987 Oct 03 at UT 01:0?0-02:00 R. Manske (Brooklyn, WI, USA, 8" 
     reflector, x226) observed sunlight glinting of the walls in spectacular 
     display of colours. White (even gold) was seen at the centre, and blue 
     on the top most part of the rim. The white (or gold) band was thin in 
     comparison to other bands. The observer suspects that this effect was 
     terrestrial atmosphere related. Cameron 2006 catalog ID=307 and weight=
     0. ALPO/BAA weight=1. 


2018-Jan-27 UT 23:26-00:03 Ill=83% SW_Limb observed by Logue_DA on 1955-1-5

     On 1955 Jan 05 at 01:00-01:30 UT D.A. Logue (Larchment, PA, 
     USA, 15cm reflector at x340, seeing Good) saw a strange blue 
     light above the surface of the Moon where the night and the 
     day meet. He observed this light for more than 30 min and it 
     did not appear to move. It appeared like a star in that the 
     rays of light came from it. The observer adds that he first 
     thought thst the objects was a star, but later decided that it 
     had to be on the Moon itself. A drawing shows the blue spot 
     near the rugged south west (IAU?) limb of the Moon. The editor 
     of the Strolling Astronomer (Vol 8, No. 11-12, Nov-Dec 1954, 
     p146) was unable to identify the craters drawn. The editor 
     speculates that the observer saw a high mountain peak with its 
     summit in sunlight and detached from the illuminated regions - 
     however this would not explain the blue colour. Note this is 
     an ALPO observation and does not apear in the Cameron 
     catalogs. ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Jan-27 UT 23:26-23:58 Ill=83% Ross_D observed by Harris on 1964-6-21

2018-Jan-28 UT 01:11-01:52 Ill=83% Plato observed by Marshall_KP on 1982-8-1

     On 1982 Aug 01 at 00:00-01:00 K. Marshall (Medellin, Columbia, 12" 
     reflector, seeing I-II) noted shading on the east floor of Plato that 
     was apparently lighter than the rest of the floor and this was seen at 
     both low and high magnifications. Foley notes that this was unusual. 
     There were three craterlets visible on the floor - the central one was 
     the brightest. Cameron 1978 catalog ID=178 and weight=3. ALPO/BAA 
     weight=1.


2018-Jan-28 UT 02:03-03:12 Ill=83% Gassendi observed by Spencer_S on 1976-4-10

     On 1976 Apr 10 at 21:15-21:49UT S.Spencer (60mm refractor x60, seeing 
     quite good) noticed a faint red glow at the south west wall of Gassendi 
     covering a span of about 35 deg arc. The observer had some doubts about 
     this because they were using a small telescope, but thought that they 
     ought to report it, just in case. A BAA Lunar Section report. ALPO/BAA 
     weight=1.


2018-Jan-28 UT 03:35-04:55 Ill=83% Aristarchus observed by Moore_P on 1985-5-30

     On 1985 May 30 at UT 20:10-23:54 P.Moore (Selsey, UK, 15" reflector) 
     and at the same time Doherty (Sussex, UK, 15" reflector) observed a 
     strangely bright and pink/red north rim of Aristarchus crater during 
     UT20:20 and 20:36UT. The effect reduced between ~20:39 and 20:44UT. 
     M.C. Cook (Frimley, UK) found the northern wall to have a red/purple 
     colour but the effect vanished after 50 minutes. Cook also saw a "V"-
     like notch in the NW crater shadow and this appeared to be bigger than 
     normal. G. North (Sussex, UK) saw a tinge of pink colour on the 
     northern rim and a bit later a "ruby red" colour on the north-west wall 
     - again this effect lasted 50 minutes. Moseley verified the colour. 
     Finally M. Hather (Yorkshire, UK) suspected the north wall of 
     Aristarchus to be blue in colour. Cameron suspects that this TLP is not 
     spurious colour because it is in the wrong place. The Cameron 2006 
     catalog ID=276 and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=4.


2018-Jan-28 UT 03:55-05:15 Ill=84% Gassendi observed by Madej_P on 1985-5-30

     USA, 12.5" reflector, x159 and 3" refractor x90, seeing 5/10, 
     transparency 3/6) found that Aristarchus was brighter through 
     a red filter than through a blue filter on its western wall. 
     He checked Aristarchus in two telecopes and obtained the same 
     result. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=419 and the weight=4. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     10" f/4 reflector, x200, seeing 6, Transparency 3 - scattered 
     cirrus) observed visually (depicted in sketch) the two closely 
     spaced NW wall dark bands) to have a rusty-red hue. The colour 
     of these bands did not change over the period of the observing 
     session. Images were taken, but resolution and image S/N is 
     not sufficient to resolve separate bands here, or to detect 
     colour. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     On 1994 Apr 23 at UT 03:30 the US Navy Clementine Spacecraft, in orbit 
     around the Moon, obtained images of the Cobra Head region of 
     Aristarchus crater that suggested a ~15x colour ratio increase (0.4 
     microns / 1.0 microns) in comparison with images obtained on 1994 Mar 
     03. This was presented as a poster paper 18.04 at AAS 31st DPS meeting.

     NE of Philolaus 1948 May 20 UT 22:00-22:15 Observed by Baum 
     (Chester, UK, 4.5" refractor) A distinct reddish tint suddenly 
     appeared to the NE of the crater, and persisted for 15 min, 
     before rapidly fading away. NASA catalog weight=3. NASA

2018-Jan-29 UT 05:05-06:22 Ill=92% Aristarchus observed by Schroter on 1788-5-17

     On 1788 May 17 at UT 21:00 Schroter (Lilleanthal, Germany, 210x 
     reflector) observed small depression, 1, near Aristarchus to be a 
     bright spot, similar to Cameron 1978 catalog ID report #45. The Cameron

2018-Jan-29 UT 05:37-07:29 Ill=92% Mare_Serenitatis observed by van_Son_M on 2004-5-2

     On 2004 May 02 at UT03:24 M. and L. van Son (Bremerton, WA, May 1st 
     7:24PM PST) saw a naked eye flash on the Moon. The observers were 
     glancing up at the Moon in daylight when they saw a bright white flash 
     (observer and his wife together) in the upper/mid Mare Serenitatis 
     region, west of the crater Posidonius. "Larger than how Venus appears".
     "It was a quick flash  like white, intense lightning. I'm not sure how 
     to report degrees of arc but if the face we see is 900, and we start 
     from the east then the flash occurred about 225 arc seconds to the 
     west. This was observed by the naked eye, with clear skies between us 
     and the moon." The observers checked for signs of aircraft vapour 
     trails but could not see any. There is a possibility that it could have 
     been sun glint from an Iridium satellite, but this needs to be checked 
     out and usually these last longer than the observed effect. It would be 
     useful to obtain whole Moon images under the same illunination and 
     libration so that we can judge this observation properly. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=4.

2018-Jan-29 UT 23:26-00:04 Ill=97% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1975-5-23

     Aristarchus 1975 May 23 P.W. Foley (Wilmington, UK, 12" 
     reflector, x200, x360, x624, atmospheric clarity good, seeing 
     III from 20:15-22:30, but the clouded out at 22:30, and from 
     23:15-01:15 seeing was IV-V with poor transparency) observed 
     (22:20-20:45 UT) variation in the SE corner of the 
     Aristarchus, namely the usual dark bands were alternating 
     light to dark, not in keeping with otyher crater features. 
     This effect was not linked to atmospheric turbulence. Also 
     projected image of bands beyond the crater W. wall were 
     repeatedly noted. The observer broke away from observing at 
     20:45UT to make a telephonealert call. At 20:55UT they noted 
     that the area between Vallis Schroteri and Herodotus seemed 
     very light/bright, also the E. exterior of the crater wall of 
     Herodotus. From 21:01-21:11 A slight blueness was seen to 
     extend from the NE corner of Aristarchus, along the exterior 
     rim, acrossand beyond Herodotus to the SW. A tgorough search 
     was made of many bright areas, both near the terminator and to 
     the E., but no blueness could be detected elsewhere. A slight 
     orange hue was noted along the E. limb of theMoon (Spurious 
     colour). From 21:18;22:30 Aristarchus seemed normal again, and 
     likewise the head of Vallis Schoteri too. The observer was 
     clouded out from 22:30-23:15and from 23:15-01:30 the seeing 
     was so appaling that no colour or projection of the bands 
     could be seen. A Moon Blink was used during the session, but 
     no colour was detected in this? Another observer, R.W. Rose 
     (Devon, UK) observed 21:20-21:30 but had IV seeing, and saw 
     nothing unusual, but commented that if TLP wactivity had been 
     taking place, then they would probably not have seen it. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     lunar eclipse Aristarchus to shine conspicuously. Cameron says that UT 
     time is on the new system (as opposed to local time) with the mid 
     eclipse at 13:00UT. The cameron 1978 catalog ID=325 and the weight=1. 
     The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jan-31 UT 07:35-09:33 Ill=100% Lunar_Eclipse observed by Varros_G on 2008-2-21

     eclipse an unconfirmed impact flash on the Moon. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=3.


2018-Jan-31 UT 07:54-09:48 Ill=100% Aristarchus observed by Johnson_SJ on 1881-12-5

     On 1881 Dec 05 at UT 17:09 Johnson observed a dark lunar eclipse. 
     Aristarchus was seen as a white spot in the coppery disk and continued 
     so. Cameron comments that this is the normal apeparance in an eclipse? 
     The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=226 and the weight=0. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=1.


2018-Jan-31 UT 07:55-09:48 Ill=100% Herodotus observed by Chernov on 1924-8-14

     1924 Aug 14 UT 20:00 Herodotus observed by Chernov (Russia, 2" 
     refractor?). Weak luminescence seen in mid lunar eclipe.

2018-Jan-31 UT 08:07-09:48 Ill=100% Unknown observed by Messier on 1783-9-10

     Moving glows seen around the middle of the
     disk during a lunar eclipse. It is possible
     that the TLP referred to might have been
     from the 1783 Mar 18 eclipse instead?


2018-Jan-31 UT 08:10-09:48 Ill=100% Mare_Crisium observed by Porta on 1954-1-19

     In 1954 Jan 19 at UT 03:00 Porta (Mallorca, Baleares, Spain, 3" 
     refractor, x50) observed the following during a total lunar eclipse: "3 
     brilliant yellowish-white spots between Picard & Peirce. Phosphor. 
     light distinguished easily against gray-green background of mare. 
     Irreg., intermittent. Did not perceive them all dur. totality. Next day 
     had impression that all of area was less clear & lightly veiled.". The 
     Cameron 1978 catalog ID=561 and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Jan-31 UT 08:12-09:48 Ill=100% Aristarchus observed by Bartlett on 1959-3-24

     Aristarchus 1959 Mar 24 UT 04:35-05:15 Observed by Bartlett 
     (Baltimore, MD, USA, 4" reflector x180, S=3, T=5) "Strong blue & 
     blue-viol. gl. on E.wall, EWBS, SWBS with intermittent display.
     At this time he noted in his 5-in L a total disappearance of 
     viol. gl. & reappear. 1 min. later. Altogether, found 4 such 
     occurences in his records, in '54, '57, ' & '59." NASA catalog 
     weight=4. NASA catalog ID #716. ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Jan-31 UT 08:20-09:34 Ill=100% Tycho observed by LeRoy on 1912-4-1

     On 1910 Apr 01 at UT 22:00-23:00 LeRoy (France?) during an eclipse, 
     observed Tycho to be visible as a very bright spot standing out in the 
     slate grey shadow. Apparently only Tycho was seen during the elipse. 
     The mid eclipse point was at 22:14UT. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=236 
     and the weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=2. 


2018-Jan-31 UT 08:25-09:48 Ill=100% Mare_Tranquillitatis observed by Searle_G on 1978-9-16

     On 1978 Sep 16 at UT 18:28-18:57 G.Searle (Concord, Sydney, NSW, 
     Australia, 8" reflector, x100, x160, S=III) observed a bright star-like 
     point on the western (IAU) edge of Mare Tranquilitatis (x100) that 
     appeared unlike any other crater and a check of the location revealed 
     no suitably bright crater in that region (from a map?). Changed to a 
     higher power (x160) and it was still there, but not as conspicuous. 
     Observer thinks that this may have been due to the Moon's low altitiude 
     (16 deg) and the seeing. At 18:35 he compared it to the brilliant 
     crater Proclus and found the star-like point to be 75% of the 
     brightness of Proclus. Ken Wallace (Australia) had been taking photos 
     and observed the object at 17:37.5UT. The object gradually faded over 
     the next 15 minutes and by 18:52UT could only be seen in averted vision 
     at x100. By 18:57UT it was gone. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=38 and 
     weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2018-Jan-31 UT 08:38-09:48 Ill=100% Aristarchus observed by Travnik on 1971-8-6

     Aristarchus 1971 Aug 06 UTC 03:45 Observed by Nelson Travnik 
     (Matias Barbosa, Minas, Brazil, 6" refractor) "Color photo 
     showing crater very bright comp. with all other features. 
     Says glare at Aris. (seen vis. ? Apollo 15 watch? Date typed 
     06-08-71. European format? if date = June 8, aux. data are

     & FM differ)." NASA catalog weight=5. NASA catalog ID #1304. 
     ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Jan-31 UT 08:40-09:48 Ill=100% Lunar_Eclipse observed by Dubois on 1954-1-19

     On 1954 Jan 18 at UT 23:30-03:30 Dubois (Floira, France) observed in 
     Oceanus_Procellarum and East Mare Fecunditatis, during a lunar eclpise 
     (mid eclipse at 03:00) a spectrographic excess luminescence: 1) waxing 
     totality max. sready near 445nm at 50' from centre of umbra; 2) waning 
     tolatity, 470-505nm, max near 490nm, 25% at 50' from centre of umbra. 
     Other observers noted a thin sliver of white on the edge of the Moon, 
     despite it being in totality. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=560 and 
     weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=5. 


2018-Jan-31 UT 08:42-09:48 Ill=100% Atlas observed by Haas_W on 1942-8-26

     On 1942 Aug 26 at UT 04:00 Haas (New Mexico?, USA, 12" 
     reflector?, very clear sky and good seeing) observed (during an 
     lunar eclipse) found an unmistakable lightening of a dark albedo 
     area in Atlas. This area returned to normal darkness during the 
     4 houres  after Atlas re-entered sunlight. Cameron says that the 
     mid eclipse was at 04:00. The Cameron 198 catalog ID=489 and 
     weight=4. The ALPO/BAA weight=2. 


2018-Jan-31 UT 08:43-09:43 Ill=100% Copernicus observed by Soulsby_B on 1994-4-25

     On 1994 Apr 25 at UT11:08 B. Soulsby (Australia) found a darkening on 
     the north floor of Copernicus crater. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jan-31 UT 09:27-09:48 Ill=100% Aristarchus observed by McKim_R on 1978-9-16

     On 1978 Sep 16 at UT19:30 R. McKin (Colchester, Essex, UK, 216mm 
     reflector and binoculars) observed that Aristarchus, in the lighter 
     region, during the lunar eclipse, was duller than usual but no less 
     conspicuous than expected. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=38 and weight=5. 
     The ALPO/BAA weight=1.
