2018-Nov-01 UT 11:40-13:03 Ill=41% Plato observed by Hobdell on 1981-10-21

     On 1981 Oct 21 at UT 11:35-11:48 B. Hobdell (St Petersberg, FL, USA, 
     10" reflector) found that the south peak of Plato on floor glowed white 
     at 11:35UT, then a milky shade spread all aorind Plato's floor 
     (previously completely shadow filled). The needle like shadows started 
     to be indistiguishable through the sunlight (dawn on Earth). The cloud 
     like feature was washed out by daylight at 11:48UT and conformed to the 
     "white area except a tail that reached the cetre of Plato" Spurious 
     colour was not seen. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=157 and weight=3.


2018-Nov-01 UT 13:11-15:08 Ill=40% Aristarchus observed by Louderback_D on 1981-10-21

     On 1981 Oct 21 at UT13:40-13:45 D. Louderback (South Bend, WA, USA, 
     10" reflector) observed a cloud on the north east quadrant of 
     Aristarchus crater, and also covered the bright spot on the east wall 
     (Cameron says that the east wall bright spot is Bartlett's "EWBS". 
     Louderback mentions that this TLP gave Aristarchus a diamond ring 
     effect. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=157 and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=2. 


2018-Nov-01 UT 16:03-17:36 Ill=39% Aristarchus observed by Brook_C on 2007-6-9

     spot was observed on the rim of Bulialdus that was perhaps slightly 
     brighter in red than in white light. The observers however decided that 
     they did not regard this as a TLP. This is a BAA Lunar Section 
     Observation. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Nov-18 UT 05:38-07:31 Ill=74% Eudoxus observed by Unknown_Observer on 1882-1-29

2018-Nov-19 UT 02:59-06:09 Ill=81% Mare_Crisium observed by Williams_AS on 1881-5-9 *

     A.S.Williams of West Brighton, UK, using a 5.25" Calver, x150 and 
     definition fairly good. Observer noticed that the Mare seemed covered 
     with a close network of innumerable streaks, and spotted with countless 
     numbers of light specks, so that it would hardly be possible to 
     delineate them all in one night. The spots and streaks together must 
     have numbered ~1000. The observer had never seen anything like the 
     number of spots and streaks. Peirce A, was not at all easy to se and 
     neighboring spots almost as bright made it difficult to distinguish 
     which one was Peirce A. ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     light occur (2-5 sec duration each and static wrt the Moon's 
     surface) across the bright illuminated side of the Moon with the 
     naked eye. Other much fainter, almost instantaneous sparkles 
     were seen. The brightest flash seen was of 5 sec duration. 
     Switching to binoculars (15x45, another fainter one was seen 
     too. Binouculars were handed to wife, who also confirmed similar 
     flashes. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Nov-19 UT 04:27-06:55 Ill=82% 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.

     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.

     central peak in Aristarchus on the NW rim of Herodotus at 
     19:10 (still there at 19:15, but the curious thing was that it 
     was not visible earlier at 18:50? Now there is a bright 
     craterlet here, and the observer doubted if what he had seen 
     was unusual - though we have the rise in brightness o20 
     minutes to account for? The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Nov-20 UT 06:10-08:07 Ill=89% Aristarchus observed by Herschel_W on 1783-5-13

     Two small conical mountains, near last 4th May eruption,
     close to the third one that he had seen before, but not
     these two. They were not on any map.


2018-Nov-20 UT 07:13-09:03 Ill=90% Langrenus observed by Baum_R on 1947-8-28

     SE of Langrenous 1947 Aug 28 UT 21:00? Observed by Baum 
     (Chester, England) A long mountain mass, on limb to the SE of 
     Langrenus crater, had a decidedly bluish cast. To the north, on 
     the limb,  were several ordinary peaks appearing in profile and 
     some were sharp and pointed. NASA catalog ID=498. NASA catalog 
     weight=3. ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     daylight on a gibous moon". The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Nov-20 UT 08:36-11:04 Ill=90% Aristarchus observed by Greenacre on 1963-10-30 *

     Aristarchus 1963 Oct 30 UT 01:50-02:15 Observed by Greenacre and 
     Barr (Flagstaff, AZ, USA, 24" Clark Refractor) observed 2 ruby 
     red spots - one just to the SW of the cobra's Head and the other 
     on a highland area east of Vallis Schroteri. A pink colour 
     formed coverting the SW rim of Aristarchus. Effects present with 
     or without Yellow Wratten 15 filer. Similar effects checked for 
     elsewhere on other craters but not seen. So presumed not to have 
     been due to chromatic aberation or astmospheric dispersion. 
     Effecta not seen in 12" refractor, but this may have been a 
     resolution issue. The NASA catalog ID No. is #778. The NASA 
     catalog weight is 5 (highly reliable). ALPO/BAA weight=4.


2018-Nov-20 UT 09:00-10:57 Ill=90% Proclus observed by Bartlett on 1950-7-27

     Proclus 1950 Jul 27 UT 02:56 Observed by Bartlett (Baltimore, 
     MD, USA) described in the NASA catalog as: "C.p. of Proc. 
     disappeared)" 5" reflector used at x100, NASA catalog weight=4. 
     ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Nov-20 UT 09:20-11:04 Ill=90% Aristarchus observed by Gray_R on 2002-9-19

     On 2002 Sep 19 at UT 06:31-07:22 R. Gray (Winnemucca, NV, USA) found 
     that the bright areas of the crater floor, and the east facing part of 
     the west rim, were brighter noticeably in red (Wratten 25) or white 
     light, than in blue (Wratten 38A). The observer suspects that the 
     apparent TLP was more to do with the relative densities of the filters 
     and the contrast in Aristarchus than a real event. This was partly 
     confirmed after checks on other craters, though it did not work 
     everywhere. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Nov-20 UT 09:42-11:04 Ill=90% Oceanus_Procellarum observed by Wildey on 1962-12-9

     In 1962 Dec 09 at UT 07:36 Wildey and Pohn (Mt Wilson, CA, USA, 60" 
     reflector) observed that Oceanus Procellarum was 1.13 magnitudes 
     brighter than normal. Observation at sunrise and is abnormal if area 
     measured was mare. If it were an east facing wall it would be normal. 
     The Cameron 1978 catalog weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Nov-20 UT 09:48-11:04 Ill=90% Aristarchus observed by Wildey on 1962-12-9

     On 1992 Feb 16 at UT 01:05-01:35 P. Moore (Selsey, UK, 12.5" 
     reflector, seeing=III) found the north rim area to be both very

2018-Nov-20 UT 10:26-11:04 Ill=90% Prinz observed by Gray_R on 2002-9-19

     On 2002 Sep 19 at UT07:36-08:06 R. Gray (Winnemucca, NV, USA) found 
     that Prinz was more difficlut to see through a blue Wratten 38A filter 
     than through a red Wratten 25 filter. However he suspects that it might 
     have something to do with the unequal (to his eyes) transmission 
     density differences between either filter. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     On 1938 Jan 16 at UT 00:00 Barker (Chestnut, England, UK, 12.5" 
     reflector) noticed that Plato crater had a brownish-gold veined 
     surface, colour irregular - laid on a smooth floor. The Cameron 
     1978 catalog ID=430 and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Nov-22 UT 09:57-11:45 Ill=99% Aristarchus observed by LeCroy on 1976-2-14

     On 1976 Feb 14 at UT23:35-0053 LeCroy (Springfield, VA, USA, 4.5" 
     reflector, x75, S=6 and T=4.5). A blue haze was seen on the east side 
     of Aristarchus and red haze on the west side. At 00:00UT details were 
     more clear and at 00:24UT Aristarchus and Herodotus, were seperated. At 
     00:34UT colours were gone. At 00:35UT blue was on Aristarchus and the 
     area was bright, but was black in a red filter. At 00:53UT the features 
     were clear and the colour gone and the brightness had decreased to 9. 
     Cameron comments that the colour was not due to temp. inversion because 
     of being dark in the red filter, implying a medium). The Cameron 1978 
     catalog TLP ID is 1428 and the weight=1. This is an ALPO report. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Nov-22 UT 10:19-12:05 Ill=99% Mons_Pico observed by Moore_P on 1996-12-24

     On 1996 Dec 24/25 at 18:12-00:02UT P. Moore (Selsey, UK, using a 15" 
     reflector x250-360, and seeing III) saw a strong orange colour on the 
     south wall and floor of Aristarchus. He suspected it to be spurious 
     colour but could not detect colours on any other craters. The colour
     remained but at 18:12 UT he suspected a trace on colour on Mons Pico 
     but was not sure. However he reported it to the TLP coordinator of the 
     BAA Lunar Section. The orange in Aristarchus gradually faded and had 
     almost vanished by 00:20UT when seeing was too bad to continue 
     observing. At 02:30UT he was able to re-observe again and there was 
     still a very very slight hint of orange in Aristarchus - but he 
     comments that if he had not been looking for it he might not have 
     noticed. ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Nov-22 UT 10:37-11:29 Ill=99% Torricelli_B observed by Foley_PW on 1985-9-28

     On 1985 Sep 28 UTC 20:54-23:52 P.W. Foley (Suffolk, UK) found (actually 
     before 20:54 UT) brightness variance in Torricelli B. J.D. Cook 
     (Frimley, UK) observed a brief blue coloured patch somewhere in the 
     Torricelli B region, but could not pin it down precisely. At 22:50UT 
     M.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, 30cm reflector, seeing III - occasionally V, 
     transparency moderate to good) Found the crater to have an elongated 
     appearance (in SSW-NNE direction) in white light, similar to the 
     previous night. A bright elongated spot was seen on the NNE floor, 
     close to where the wall should be. Not able to define the rim. There 
     was a very dark surrounding area to the crater, similar to what it was 
     on the previous night (roughly 1/4 brightness of Censorinus). 23:04UT 
     brighter in yellow, then red, then blue. At 23:10 it was seen that blue 
     filter dulled the crater - this was odd because both Censorinus and 
     Proclus were brighter in blue, which is what he would normally expect. 
     At23:15 UT Censorinus was brighter in blue, then yellow then red 
     filters and some orange spurious colour seen to the south of 
     Censorinus. At 23:23UT no spurious colour seen on Proclus or 
     Censorinus. 23:46UT Torricelli B elongated as before, but a very faint 
     ray might have been seen to the south west of the rim. This report is 
     not in the 2006 Cameron catalog. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2018-Nov-22 UT 11:26-13:16 Ill=99% Plato observed by Kelsey on 1966-8-1

     Plato 1966 Aug 01 UT 06:14 Observed by Kelsey (Riverside, CA, 
     USA, 8" reflector x300) The wall from the S to the NNE wouldn't 
     focus well though at least 4 craterlets on the floor were 
     clearly seen (Ricker uncertain if real TLP. Cameron thinks it 
     probably was -- similar to Bartlett's experience on Aris. NASA 
     catalog weight=2. NASA catalog ID #961. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2018-Nov-23 UT 05:28-07:13 Ill=100% Plato observed by Mount_AW on 1944-9-3

     Plato 1944 Sep 03 UTC 03:40 - A.W. Mount (Fort Worth, TX, USA, 
     Conditions good, seeing 6/10) saw a small white bright point of 
     light appear suddenly close to the W. wall of Plato glowed 
     briefly as by far the most conspicuous object in the lunar field 
     of view and vanished quickly after approximately 2 sec. It was 
     star-like in appearance and was stationary on the Moon's surface 
     - about magnitude 6? Angular diameter of the flash was <= 1". 
     Observing conditions good enough to see the central craterlet in

     enhancement in red light at 672.5nm and 545.0nm. Luminescence 
     ~86% +/-3% of background. According to the Cameron catalog, 
     Moore(12" reflector, UK) noted somehting unsual between 22:30 
     and 03:00 but this might apply to Kepler, Coperncius, and/or 
     Aristarchus and that was seen 23:30-03:00? - the catalog is not 
     very clear. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=779 and weight=5. The

     On 1980 Sep 24 at UT 21:13-23:50 P.Moore (Selsey, UK) at 22:45 saw loss 
     of detail in the north west wall, especially in red light, but also 
     slightly in blue light too. By 22:48 there was activity on the crater 
     floor i.e. the four bright spots were visible in white light but not in 
     red. In blue the central spot was seen and there were dark radial 
     streaks to the south wall and south east. At 22:50 there was a loss of 
     detail. Other craters were normal. At 23:08 the floor was dark in red, 
     but some details were visible in blue. the effect had finished by 
     23:35. At21:34 J-H Robinson found Plato to be normal and no blinks, 
     though floor clearer in red than in blue, however the floor detail had 
     gone by 21:57. Blair suspected a dusty patch in north of Plato, 
     especially in red light. at 21:57 and it started spreading at 21:13, 
     then east at 21:15 and then north. Though it faded at 21:25 but was 
     back again at 21:35, and Moon blink colour filters still gave a 
     reaction at 21:50 - the TLP remained strong until 23:50UT. The Cameron 
     2006 catalog ID=110 and weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=4.

2018-Nov-25 UT 09:43-11:29 Ill=94% Aristarchus observed by Curtis on 1987-6-14

     Aristarchus 1987 June 14 UT 04:43-08:00 Observed by Curtis, Jacobs, and 
     Manske (Yanna Research Station, Carl A. Fosmark Jr. Memorial 
     Observatory, Madison Astronomical Society, WI, USA, 17" f4.5 Dobsonian 
     and the 8" f10 SCT Celestron) "On the night 13/14  June  11:42 P.M. to 
     3:00 A.M. local time or 14 June 04:43 to 8:00 UT. Three people 
     witnessed this event and all three of them observed with three 
     different telescopes to rule out instrumental aberration. These three 
     pople were members of the Madison Astronomical. The three observers 
     involved are Keith Curtis, Tom Jacobs and Robert Manske. Keith Curtis 
     took detailed notes of the event as he observed it. The observations 
     were made at the Yanna Research Station, Carl A. Fosmark Jr.
     Memorial Observatory of the Madison Astronomical Society following the 
     annual picnic. This is MAS dark sky site and is located near Brooklyn, 
     Wisconsin. As they were observing the night sky they saw the Moon 
     rising and noted a strong orange color due to atmospheric effects. 
     Approximately 1/2 hour after the Moon rise they decided to turn one of 
     the telescopes on it. It was at 04:43 UT, it was noted by Keith Curtis 
     that as the Moon rose it began to loose the horizon color effect and 
     return to its normal color, but he found that the red color was not 
     leaving the crater Aristarchus. At first they all thought this was an 
     atmospheric effect but decided it was a real event since they detected  
     a second crater (Euler) showing red color on its rim. Keith Curtis
     said that the red color was very strong on the Western rim of 
     Aristarchus with a strong blue/green or aqua green on the Eastern rim. 
     Keith also reported that the glow opaque enough to prevent viewing of 
     the interior of crater Aristarchus. He said they observed until 3:00 
     A.M. daylight saving time or 8:00 UT. and the red glow was still 
     visible when they ended  their observing session. Robert Manske 
     description of the event was that he saw two craters glowing a strong 
     red and blue giving it a rainbow effect. He said that the red glow was 
     so strong he was unable to see the craters underneath during the entire 
     observing session. Concerning the orientation of the red and blue was 
     on the crater he stated that  he did not remember since he failed to 
     take any notes. Concerning whether there was any difference in 
     appearance when they observed it with the 17" f4.5 Dobsonian and the 
     8" f10 SCT Celestron. He said that he could not detect any difference 
     to the lunar formation or the color on it regardless of which telescope 
     he used. He did mention that as the Moon was rising it had the 
     appearance of one large Maria in the center of the disk. This illusion 
     disappeared as the Moon rose higher into the sky. When talking to Tom 
     Jacobs he said that he remembered that he did not see anything on the 
     Moon until 1/2 hour after Moon rise. He said that he remembered that 
     the entire Aristarchus region had a strong reddish or pinkish color. 
     All three witness all reported variations in the type of color they 
     were seeing. This would indicate that individuals color perception is a 
     major factor during a color event. Keith Curtis saw a very strong 
     coloration around the rim of the craters, where Robert Manske saw the 
     entire region covered by this red and blue coloration and he could not 
     see the interior of the craters underneath. Tom Jacobs reported that 
     the glow covered the entire crater but he could see the crater 
     underneath it. The Moon never achieved a height greater than 21 degrees 
     so it could be that what the observers saw was caused by the Earths 
     atmosphere. Further details can be found on the following web site:

     Moon Blink carried out. In Red 25 Proclus looked nearly the 
     same as in white light. Through the Blue 38a filter, however, only the 
     brilliant lit south east wall was clearly visible. The northeast wall 
     was very dim with this filter. With no filters the NE and SE wall were 
     brilliantly lit, the SE wall was almost as bright as Aristarchus. A 
     thread like strip along the NW wall, possibly the rim of the crater, 
     was also brilliantly illuminated. The interior of the crater was a 
     featureless stygian black with the exception of a brilliant (intensity

     Aristarchus 1978 Nov 20 UTC 03:00-05:00 Observed by Foley (Kent, UK, no 
     spurious colour, Seeing Antoniadi II and transparency good.) - 
     colouration seen: very bright violet spot on the north west interior. 
     No brightness variations seen. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=44 and 
     weight=. The ALPO/BAA weight=3. ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Nov-28 UT 09:27-10:43 Ill=68% Aristarchus observed by Cameron_W on 1982-10-8

     On 1982 Oct 08 at UT 04:15-04:30 W. Cameron (Silverspring, MD, USA, 
     3.5" reflector, x160, Seeing-very good) suspected blue tinge on north 
     west rim and brown/red on south east rim of Aristarchus crater + focus 
     was slightly difficult. No similar colour effect seen on other craters. 
     Cameron 2006 catalog ID=186 and weight=1. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Nov-28 UT 09:27-10:43 Ill=68% Clavius observed by Cameron_W on 1982-10-8

     On 1982 Oct 08 at UT 04:15-04:30 W. Cameron (Silverspring, MD, USA, 
     3.5" reflector, x160) found that Clavius had a "D" shaped crater on its 
     outskirts that made it appear to have a ridge crossing through it. 
     Cameron 2006 catalog ID=186 and weight=1. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Nov-28 UT 09:27-10:17 Ill=68% Plato observed by Darling_D on 1989-4-26

     On 1989 Apr 26 at UT 10:22-10:44 D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 3" 
     refractor, x36-x140) found that the eastern half of Plato crater was 
     dark - and he checked this using several eyepieces. moderate 
     magnification resolved the dark region into bands, but too high a 
     magnification (x140) made the bands dissappear. The Cameron 2006 
     catalog ID=362 and the weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=1. 


2018-Nov-28 UT 11:46-13:26 Ill=67% Rimae_Triesnecker observed by Markov on 1915-7-3

     Triensecker Rille 1915 Jul 03 UTC 00:00? Observed by Markov (Russia) 
     "Several spots changed their shapes compared with Gordeenko's depiction 
     on 5/23/12 see #339; which cannot be explained by light variations." 
     NASA catalog weight=3. NASA catalog ID #356.


2018-Nov-28 UT 11:53-13:23 Ill=67% Plato observed by Mobberley_M on 1981-10-18

     On 1981 Oct 18 UT 22:14022:16 M.Mobberley (Bury St Edmunds, UK, 
     14" Cassegrain, seeing variable, transparency misty) found that 
     the central craterlet on the floor of Plato was not visible, 
     despite it being visible under similar colongitudes on other 
     nights. Might be due to observing conditions, but observer 
     suspicous. At 02:08 the observer comments that the central 
     craterlet was ellusive, and at 02:42, though it is uncertain 
     whether they regarded it as suspicous still at this stage? 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Nov-28 UT 13:17-15:13 Ill=66% Vallis_Schroteri observed by Pickering_WH on 1891-9-23

     On 1891 Sep 23 at UT 22:00 Pickering, based at Arequipa, Peru, and 
     using a 12" reflector, saw in Schroter's Valley and the vicinity 
     "Varitions in vapor column. Drawings. Time estimated from given 
     colongitude)." Cameron 1978 catalog ID=272 and weight=1. ALPO/BAA

     Heraclides Point 1948 Jul 27 UT 02:00? Observed by Doherty (Stoke-on-
     Trent, England, 3" refractor? or 6" reflector or 10" reflector) 
     "Strangeley blurred & misty; La Place Prom was perfectly sharp." 
     NASA catalog weight=3 (average). NASA catalog ID #507.


2018-Nov-29 UT 10:51-11:34 Ill=56% Lexell observed by Unknown_English_Observer on 1919-2-21

     In 1919 Feb 21 at UT 22:00? an unknown English observer observed in 
     Lexell crater an intensely dark line going out from it. The Cameron 
     1978 catalog ID=370 and weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Nov-29 UT 10:51-12:09 Ill=56% Archimedes observed by Darling_D on 1981-9-20

     On 1981 Sep 20 at UT 08:00-09:40 D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 
     12.5" reflector, x342, seeing=excellent) detected the small crater on 
     its western rim But not on the eastern floor. This was odd because both 
     are equal in size, furthermore smaller craters could be seen and the 
     Moon was at a high altitude above the horizon, so seeing not a problem. 
     Cameron 2006 catalog ID=154 and weight=3. ALPO/BAA weight=1. 


2018-Nov-29 UT 11:18-12:48 Ill=56% Aristarchus observed by Sage_VA on 1978-10-23

     Aristarchus 1978 Oct 23 UT 06:30-06:34 V.A. Sage (Bristol, UK, 
     10.25" reflector, x250, Wratten 44a and 25, seeing II) noted 
     that Aristarchus was surrounded by a dark area in the blue 
     filter. They did not regard this as a TLP at the time. However 
     because Aristarchus is surrounded by blue material in real life, 
     this should have been brighter? For this reason, despite the 
     observer regarding this as a negative TLP, an ALPO/BAA weight=1 
     has been applied.


2018-Nov-29 UT 16:32-18:23 Ill=54% Vallis_Schroteri observed by Unknown_Observer on 1994-4-3

     On 1995 Apr 03 at UT 03:30 Unknown Observer (Transparency good) saw a 
     darkening in the Cobra Head, Schroter's valley area of Aristarchus - 
     the best example that he had ever seen. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=474 
     and the weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=. Reference - BAA Lunar Section 
     circular 1995 Oct, p125 and personal communication from David Darling 
     to the BAA on 6/6/1995. Note it is uncertain whether this refers to the 
     Clementine mission or to somebody who observed during the Clementine 
     mission, or somebody with that surname. Anyway if it is the Clementine 
     mission then the date is wrong - possibly the year should have been 
     1994? The Cameron catalogue does actually mention a TIFF on Clementine 
     mission? The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=474 and the weight=3. I am 
     assuming that the year should be 1994 and not 1995? The ALPO/BAA 
     catalog weight=1 until we can find out what the correct date is?

     (Parnaiba, PI, Brazil, 9.5" reflector, x90, seeing=good) 
     observed during a lunar eclipse that the Straight Wall 
     surroundings were darker than an observation from two days 
     earlier. At 07:09UT tonality became clearer. As dawn was in 
     progress and atmospheric turbulence, not sure if it was a TLP? 
     Other features were normal. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1297 and 
     weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     was a slight, but definite illumination of small areas of the 
     crater floor west of the central; peak. Also seen by T. Ferrel 
     (Lawrenceville, GA, USA, SCT C8). This was oval in shape and 
     gray in colour - Ferrel noted some diffuseness. It brightened 
     over 30 minutes. At 08:11UT a definite brightness fade noted in
