     seeing=6/10 and transparency=5/5) observed a large diffuse ashen-like 
     effect over the shadow filled floor of Plato. The effect was lighter 
     towards the south. Observer checked the effect with both left and right 
     eyes and it remained the same. Unusually no shadow spires from rim 
     moutain peaks were seen. A check for colour in the region effected 
     revealed none. As time progressed, terrestrial twilight encroached. A

     Aristarchus 1983 Aug 03 UT 0305-0400 Observed by R,Moseley 
     (Coventry, UK, 6" reflector, seeing II, Transparency very good). 
     At the start of the observation, the NE wall and immediate 
     exterior was the brightest area visible (this is normal) and 
     seemed tinged with a faint blue/violet. At 03:45 the impression 
     of colour was fading in the brightening sky, but by 03:55 the 
     colour was back again with a faint violet/purple surrounding the 
     whole formation from E clockwise to N. The observer found it 
     difficult to decide whether it was really a colour on the Moon, 
     or an optical illusion. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Sep-04 UT 06:44-10:12 Ill=35% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

     On 1988 Apr 18 at UT 19:00 R. Manske (Madison, WI, USA) observed that 
     Aristarchus? was glowing in Earthshine. Weier (Madison, WI, USA) 
     detected it easily in 7x50 binouculars. Spain (Fairfield, KY, USA) 
     though detected no TLP, nor could he see Aristarchus. The Cameron 2006 
     catalog ID=324 and the weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Sep-12 UT 23:15-23:28 Ill=13% Aristarchus observed by Celis on 1970-5-8

     On 1970 May 08 at UT 23:00-23:30 Celis (Quilpue, Chile, 3" refractor, 
     x60, atmosphere turbulent) observed in the Aristarchus region a clear 
     line(?) and several star-like points. Cameron suspects atmospheric 
     effects due to low altitude and turbulence? The Cameron 1978 catalog 
     ID=1259 and weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Sep-12 UT 23:15-00:00 Ill=13% Gassendi observed by Graham_F on 1990-4-28

     On 1990 Apr 28 at UT 00:00-00:30 F. Graham (Marshall TWP, OH, USA, 6" 
     reflector) during a failed attempt to observe the occultation of X6493 
     that was thwarted by clouds, noticed that Gassendi was "Gass,>>,>Aris 
     or anything else". The crater had a "milky lustre". It is possible that 
     another occultation observing group may have a video of the Earthshine 
     at this time. Darling (Sun prairem WI, USA, 20x50 binoculars) could not 
     see Earthsine, though the sky was bright at the time. The Cameron 2006 
     catalog ID=402 and the weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2018-Sep-15 UT 00:14-00:26 Ill=31% Aristarchus observed by Celis on 1970-7-8

     On 1970 Jul 08 at UT 23:00-23:30 Celis (Paso Hondo, Chile, 3" 
     refractor, x60, x100, x135, seeing=excellent) observed the following at 
     Aristarchus: "Conditions again similar (to #1264). Brighter tonite(8 
     deg) than last nite. but not as bright as on the 6th. Pin pts. of light 
     very accentuated. The radial open hand extended fingers form not so 
     frequently, perhaps because of the larger crescent illum. now.". 
     The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1266 and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Sep-14 UT 23:43-00:28 Ill=31% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

2018-Sep-15 UT 01:34-02:02 Ill=31% 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 
     weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2018-Sep-15 UT 23:10-23:52 Ill=40% W_Limb observed by Webb_TW on 1855-6-20

     grazing lunar occultation, found that Aristarchus (and the surrounding 
     region) was glowing in Earthshine. This was confirmed by D. Weier 
     (Madison, WI, USA) at 02:00 UT also. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.  


2018-Sep-16 UT 00:08-00:58 Ill=40% Menelaus observed by Grego_P on 2012-3-28

     On 2012 Mar 28 P. Grego (Cornwall, UK, seeing II, 100mm 
     refractor, x132) observed a patch of light just inside the NW 
     rim of Menelaus on the shadowed wall or floor. Computer 
     visulaiztions of the illumination conditions using a digital 
     elevation model failed to produce this effect. ALPO/BAA weight=3.

2018-Sep-17 UT 00:02-01:35 Ill=50% Pitiscus observed by Slayton_G on 1981-9-6

     Pitiscus 1981 Sep 05 UT ??:?? but assumed to be AM? which would make 
     it 00:00-03:00UTC. Observed by Slayton (Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA, 
     8" reflector, ASA 64EK7 f/170, Kodak Kodachrome) photographed a bright 
     glow in the crater that appeared to move. Observer also reported seeing 
     it visually noting that it looked gray with a tinge of red. For further 
     information see p266 of Sky & Telescope (1991, March). Note that 
     Cameron gives the date and UT at 1981 Sep 06 UT 01:00-01:30, or one day 
     later. I will use this date and time from now on. The Cameron 2006 
     catalog ID=152 and weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     In 1982 Sep 24 at 22:45-23:40 K. Marshall (Medellin, Columbia) saw in 
     Theophilus an obscuration on the south west wall close to Cyrillus and 
     furthermore it had a red / mauve colouration (seen best in a 12mm Ortho 
     eyepiece). Through a Wratten 15 yellow filter the region was quite 
     bright. At23:40UT the obscuration faded. There was plenty of detail in 
     the region between Theophilus and Cyrils. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=
     184 and the weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=3. 


2018-Sep-17 UT 00:55-01:35 Ill=51% Posidonius observed by Houdard on 1915-4-21

     On 1915 Apr 21 at UT 1800? Houdard (France) noticed a special

     Sparks (Ruislip, ------, England, 6" relector x156) "Dean saw 
     something in Proclus, alerted Jamieson who saw nothing unusual 
     at 2043h, but tho't Secchi was quite bright. At 2035 Sparks saw 
     Proc. fluctuate. Red & blue filters showed some reduction in 
     brightness. E. edge showed darkening, but not as dark as in 
     shadows. 10 min later, returned to normal. (Sparks confirmed 
     Dean)." NASA catalog weight=5. NASA catalog ID #1267. ALPO/BAA 
     weight=3.


2018-Sep-17 UT 23:07-23:54 Ill=60% Secchi observed by Dean on 1970-7-11

     1970 Jul 11 UT 20:35-20:45 During a TLP alert for Proclus, Jamieson  
     saw nothing unusual, but found instead that Secchi was quite bright.  
     NASA catalog weight=5 (very good). NASA catalog ID #1267. ALPO/BAA 
     weight=1.


2018-Sep-17 UT 23:07-23:51 Ill=60% Eimmart observed by Louderback_D on 1983-9-15

     On 1983 Sep 15 at UT 05:20-05:24 Louderback (South Bend, WA, USA, 
     8" reflector and 3" refractor, seeing poor) found that the west wall of 
     Eimmart was unusually bright (8.3) and apparently it was almost as 
     bright as the "WEBS(of Aris?) at its brightest". The crater was 
     apparently normal again on Sep 20 and 26. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=
     228 and the weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Sep-17 UT 23:07-23:15 Ill=60% Mons_Pico observed by Adee_J on 2008-4-13

     2009 Apr 13 UT 18:55-20:00 J. Adee (UK) and later A. Jarwaski (UK) saw 
     Mons Pico to be incredibly bright. Adee reported naked eye visibility, 
     though this does not show up in later CCD images. Jarwaski saw another 
     nearby Mt very bright as well. This has been assigned an ALPO/BAA 
     weight of 2, though i suspect it is just normal for Pico to get quite 
     bright at sunrise.


2018-Sep-17 UT 23:07-23:20 Ill=60% Montes_Apenninus observed by Armitage_J on 2008-4-13

     Patches of brightness seen in the area between craters Aratus and Joy.
     Seemed to the observer to be perhaps slightly brighter than one would
     expect - the observer thought that their observation only barely
     constitured a TLP but decided to send the report in anyway. This
     has been assigned an ALPO/BAA weight of 1.

     On 1990 May 03 at UT 02:03 D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, seeing 
     steady) observed a point of light inside Alphonsus just to the north 
     of the central peak, along the "center ridge". It was seen again, half 
     way between the central peak and the noth west rim - along the ridge. 
     All other features were normal. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=403 and the 
     weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

2018-Sep-18 UT 00:30-01:55 Ill=60% Moon observed by Mattingly on 1972-4-21

     On 1972 Apr 21 at UT19:01 Mattingly (Apollo 16 commander, in orbit 
     around the Moon, using his naked eyes) saw a bright flash from below 
     his horizon on the lunar farside (approximate longitude=180 deg). he

     features, one on the southern floor of the crater, and another 
     just slightly to the NW of the centre. on the southern 
     floor of the crater. Lena suspects a combination of seeing 
     effects and albedo markings on the floor. However this effect of 
     two spots on the floor has not been repeated again.For further

2018-Sep-24 UT 07:20-08:16 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

     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.

     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.

     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

2018-Sep-27 UT 06:49-08:42 Ill=95% 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:
