2017-Sep-01 UT 01:48-03:45 Ill=75% Sasserides_H observed by Haydalsvik on 1974-1-3

     On 1974 Jan 03 at UT 18:30 a Norwegian amateur astronomer, (Hoydalsvik 
     (Hakonsgate, in West Norway, 60mm refractor) photographed the Moon 
     using High Speed Ektacrome (400ASA) film with good focus. The TLP was 
     located on the southern slope of Sasserides H and was pink in colour 
     with some buish in it. The coloured area was circular with a diameter 
     of 0.5 minutes of arc. Only one exposure was taken. The photograph was 
     checked by the Institute of Theoretical Astrophysics, University of 
     Oslo. This report was received by the BAA Lunar Section.

     Mons Undest), near Lambert, had a "very strong glow", especially 
     the part that was facing the line of the terminator and this was 
     brighter than the side facing away. The No other object nearby 
     was casting as much light, even Mons La Hire. The effect was 
     seen for 40 minutes and the glow was present throughout. The

2017-Sep-01 UT 22:28-00:18 Ill=82% Bianchini_G observed by Caruso_J on 1987-9-4

     Om 1987 Sep 04 at UT 03:00 J. Caruso (Middletown, CT, USA, 3" 
     refractor, x155, S=6/10 and T=8/10) found that Bianchini G was not 
     visible, however Heraclides E, Helicon G, and indeed many other smaller 
     craters could be seen. There were two small mountains in the general 
     area of Bianchini G. and a mare ridge - all these were clearly seen. 
     Caruso states that Bianchini G should normally be much more clearly 
     seen than the other features mentioned and is the same size as 
     Heraclides E. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=305 and the weight=3. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2017-Sep-02 UT 01:45-03:32 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.


2017-Sep-02 UT 04:15-05:52 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.


2017-Sep-02 UT 04:25-05:44 Ill=83% 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.


2017-Sep-02 UT 05:16-05:52 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.

     "Varitions in vapor column and visibility of craterlets A, C and F 
     (Plate B) in early period at Peru. Directional vaporjet towards F 
     varied but was always continuous. Later, in Musa. There was a break in 
     it. D was quiescent in early period. (due to change in telescope &

     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.

     Aristarchus 2015 Mar 03 UT 23:58 Brendan Shaw (UK) saw a flash 
     on the NW rim of Aristarchus on his computer screen - the camera 
     was working in the near IR. Seeing was not very good at the 
     time. Unfortunately this flash occurred in between imaging 
     sessions. No other flashes seen, despite looking. The observer 
     considerd the possibility that it might have been a cosmic ray 
     detection, but cannot say for sure. The ALPO/BAA TLP weight=1.

     reflector, x200, Wratten 25 and 44A filters, seeing II-III, 
     transparency, good) noticed in Aristarchus, blue to the north west
     (IAU?) internal wall, also blue observed in other small bright objects 
     against dark backgrounds. Lunar rotational axis and optical normal 
     related such that the normal runs NW-SE (IAU?) through these features. 
     Observer deduced that the coliur was obviously spurious and no blink 
     was seen in any feature. The blue disappeared as the lunar altitude 
     increased and no blue seen by 00:00UT. This is a BAA lunar section

     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

     On 1975 Nov 18/19 at UT 23:15-0005 LeCroy Jr and Sr (Springfield, VA, 
     4.5" reflector, S=7) observed that Delambra was one of four glowing 
     spots on the Moon during a lunar eclipse (including Aristarchus). At 
     23:50UT 3 of these patches emerged from the dark and appeared as bright 
     spots compared to other craters "Älbedo=10+". The Albedos of Manilius 
     and Delambre were 8.5 at 00:05UT. Details became apparent in all 3 
     features. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1419 abd weight=0. The ALPO/BAA

2017-Sep-06 UT 05:42-06:41 Ill=100% Menelaus observed by LeCroy on 1975-11-18

     On 1975 Nov 18/19 at UT 23:15-0005 LeCroy Jr and Sr (Springfield, VA, 
     4.5" reflector, S=7) observed that Menelaus was one of four glowing 
     spots on the Moon during a lunar eclipse (including Aristarchus). At 
     23:50UT 3 of these patches emerged from the dark and appeared as bright 
     spots compared to other craters "Älbedo=10+". At 23:55UT a ray appeared 
     out of the north east rim of menelaus (Normal?). It appeared just 
     before the artea emerged and increased in brightness. At 23:58UT it 
     decreased and continued to do so. The north east edge of Menelaus 
     appeared very dark at the point that the ray was extending from SW edge 
     (a ridge there) and apperared to obscure features along its path 
     (Albedo=9). The Albedos of Manilius and Delambre were 8.5 at 00:05UT. 
     At 00:05UT the rays were still apparent but seemed to have returned to 
     normal. Details became apparent in all 3 features. The Cameron 1978

2017-Sep-06 UT 22:40-00:30 Ill=99% Mare_Tranquillitatis observed by Culver on 1988-4-3 *

     On 1988 Apr 03 at UT02:25-02:30 Culver (Harker Heights, X, USA, Meade 
     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 
     visible on these nor variations. Apparently the observer had seen this 
     type of TLP before but had not reported them. The Cameron 2006 catalog

     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

     On 1977 Oct 28 UT 19:25 V.M. Chernov (Soviet Union) observed that 
     Copernicus was brighter than normal i.e. brighter than Kepler but less 
     bright than Aristarchus. In January and February 1977 both Copernicus 
     and Kepler were of the same brightness. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2017-Sep-07 UT 08:31-09:13 Ill=99% Aristarchus observed by Moore_P on 1988-8-28

     On 1988 Aug 28 at UT22:00 P.Moore (Selsey, UK, 5" refractor, x260) 
     detected a red glow along the outer wst rim and 99% it was not a TLP as 
     there had been a fire nearby so was probably atmospheric. However 
     colour if present, is normally seen on the south rim. The Cameron 2006 
     catalog ID=336 and the weight=1. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2017-Sep-07 UT 23:42-23:53 Ill=96% Lichtenberg observed by Barcroft on 1940-10-18 *

     Lichtenberg area 1940 Oct 18 UT 07:11 Observed by Barcroft 
     (Madera, CA, USA, 6" reflector) "Pronouced reddish-brown or 
     orange color, less marked on next nite, & slight on 22nd, see 
     #'s 477, 478." NASA catalog weight=3. ALPO/BAA weight=2. NASA 
     catalog ID #476.


2017-Sep-08 UT 01:10-04:26 Ill=96% 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.


2017-Sep-08 UT 04:17-05:37 Ill=96% Aristarchus observed by Moseley_R on 1984-11-10

     On 1984 Nov 10 at UT19:15-19:50 R. Moseley (Coventry, UK, the Moon's 
     altitude was low) noticed that the region from the central peak and 
     over and onto the east wall looked unusual. 8 bands were visible, "two 
     on E. wall of c.p. strongest, surrounding collar grey increasing 
     intensely outward. Band at 2 o'clock position was very dark. Bright 
     spot on W. wall at 4 o'clock position." A sketch was made that 
     illustrates bands on either side with bright patch. The Cameron 2006 
     catalog ID=252 and the weight=2. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     12.5"reflector, seeing=7/10 and T=3) did not detect the dark region on 
     the south east floor of Proclus (the TLP from a few days earlier), but 
     did see 2 "linear mounds". The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=335 and the 
     weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     On 2011 Jan 21 at 22:30UT N.Longshaw (UK, 4" Achromatic 
     refractor, x128 & x160, Seeing III, transparancy average) 
     suspected on the eastern edge of Geminus, on the border of the 
     crater filled shadow and the eastern illuminated rim, a 
     brownish, almost speia hue. This extended for a short distance 
     from the floor shadow into the illuminated rim width and spanned 
     from the north to the south of the crater. For a comparison, 
     Cleomedes was checked but nothing unusual was noticed in its 
     shadow. The observer notes that Elger also saw a warm brown or 
     sepia tone. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2017-Sep-24 UT 22:36-23:18 Ill=21% Aristarchus observed by Sancristoforo_G on 2011-4-7

     On 2011 Apr 07 UT 19:45-20:10 Aristarchus was seen to be “very 
     bright” in Earthshine. Giorgio Sancristoforo (Milan, Italy, 
     203mm SCT, atmospheric seeing good) noticed Aristarchus to be 
     exceptionally bright (Sketch supplied) at around 20:00 and was 
     the first to report this. Although he did not record the start 
     and end times, he commented that the effect lasted 20-30 minutes 
     and then was significantly reduced in brightness. Although 
     direct comparison in terms of brightnes could not be made with a 
     star, he thought Aristarchus to be brighter than +0.7 in 
     magnitude (Saturn). Furthermore Aristarchus was visible when 
     daylight was still present, when looking through the telescope, 
     although it could not be seen with the naked eye due to too much 
     extraneous light. Aristarchus was probably white in colour, but 
     the observer was partly colour blind and so was uncertain. Not 
     much detail was seen elsewhere in Earthshine, even when the sky 
     darkened, and he was not able to see Kepler or Copernicus, just 
     the limb. No details were seen in Aristarchus itself, for 
     example no ray to the SW was visible. It later transpired that 
     Lajos Bartha (Budapest, Hungary, 70mm refractor, x83, seeing 
     conditions good) had observed Earthshine even earlier from 
     UT19:45-20:10 and noticed a bright area close to the edge of the 
     Moon that he later confirmed was Aristarchus. When he started 
     observing the sky twilight was still a deep blue, but the dark 
     side of the Moon was seen both with the naked eye and through 
     the telescope. Earthshine was medium in brightness and grey in 
     colour. Copernicus and Kepler were weak in brightness but 
     certainly visible. There was some scattered light from the 
     sunlit side of the Moon noticed, but not enough to obscure 
     Copernicus and Kepler from visibility. As a test he moved the 
     telescope around and the bright spot moved with the Moon and so 
     was not a glare problem. The following day he checked Earthshine 
     again but found that the bright spot was not so conspicuous. As 
     a footnote, Tim Haynes (UK) had been observing an occultation of 
     37 Tauri, much earlier at 19:14UT, through 10x50 binoculars. He 
     commented that Earthshine was visible, but that he hadn't 
     noticed Aristarchus - though he was not looking at the Moon 
     specifically to see this crater. ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     On 1981 Oct 02 P. Madej (Huddersfield, UK, 77mm refractor, 
     seeing I to II) noticed that at 20:48 UT Aristarchus had a 2nd 
     magnitude star-like point on the NE rim (x38). At x83 he could 
     see a small disc of around 3-6 arc sec in diameter, and at 
     x111 it looked the ame but bluish-white in colour. He was able 
     to see Aristarchus, Herodotus, and Vallis Schroteri.

2017-Sep-25 UT 21:49-23:21 Ill=29% Grimaldi observed by ASTRONET on 1966-9-20

     On 1966 Sep 20 at UT 03:22 Three Astronet observers (Phoenix, AZ, and 
     Los Angeles, CA, USA) (independently?) reported flashes in Grimaldi 
     crater. One observer was in Phoenix AZ, and another in Losa Angeles, 
     CA, so probably not due to the atmosphere. Cameron comments that the 
     astronaut Schmidt on Apollo 17 saw a flash in it while orbiting the 
     Moon. the Cameron 1978 catalog ID=977 and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=4.


2017-Sep-25 UT 21:49-22:14 Ill=29% Aristarchus observed by Pruss on 1969-7-19

     On 1969 Jul 19 at UT 1845-18:47 Pruss and Witte (Bochum, Germany, 6" 
     refractor x36 and binoculars) saw brightenings in the north west wall 
     of Aristarchus for 3-7 seconds of about 1 magnitude over the 
     background. From orbit at UT 18:46 the Apollo 11 crew Armstrong, 
     Aldrin, and Collins (in orbit around the Moon and using the naked eye) 
     were asked to take a look at Aristarchus after Earth-based reports of 
     TLP activity. Armstrong reported (after the solar corona had set, on 
     the night side) that probably Aristarchus "to be considerably more 
     illuminated than the surrounding area. It just has - seem to have, a 
     slight amount of flourescence to it". Collins reported a moment later: 
     "Looking out on the same area now. Well at least there is one wall of 
     the crater that seems to be more illuminated than the others. I am not 
     sure that I am actually identifying any phosporesecence, but that 
     definitely is lighter than anything else in the neighborhood". Houston 
     then asked if the crew could detect any colour and if the inner wall 
     was the inner or outer part? Aldrim  commnted that it was the inner 
     wall and Collins mentioned thatno colour was incolved. The Cameron 1978 
     catalog ID=1165 and weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2017-Sep-25 UT 21:49-23:00 Ill=29% Aristarchus observed by Gervais on 1969-7-19

     On 1969 Jul 19 at UT 19:30-21:30 Gervais (Lodure, France, 4.5" 
     refractor?) saw the whole region of Aristarchus and its environs 
     as brighter than normal. Two photographs were obtained. The 
     Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1156 and weight=5. At UT 20:30-20:55 
     Oliver (Spain, using a reflector) found the Aristarchus to have 
     brightened by about 1 magnitude. From UT 20:12-20:30 the crater 
     had been normal. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1167 and the 
     weight=2. At UT 21:00-00:35 P. Mourilhe Silva (Rio de Janeiro, 
     Brazil, 19.5" refractor) saw Aristarchus as a very bright 
     elliptical shape which extended to the north like a bridge 
     between two points. Jose M. L. da Silva and Ronaldo Mourao (Rio 
     de Janeiro, Brazil, 13" refractor) saw a brightening on the 
     north west wall from 21:24-23:22UT intermittently but cont'd. 
     Wall was extraordinarilly bright, along NW wall brighter. 
     Moseley (Armagh, Northern Ireland, UK, 10" refractor) detected 
     an unusual bright, along north west wall, brighter than normal 
     in Earthshine and brighter than crater. It was not constant, but 
     pulsated irregularly with frequency of 20 seconds and amplitude 
     0.75-1.0 magnitudes. No colour seen or obscuration though lokked 
     for. Clouds interrupted observations. Vasquez (Valparaiso, 
     Chile, 12" reflector) saw it as a very luminous point of 
     magnitude 1. Wairy Cardoso (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 12" 
     reflector and 18" refractor) noted a bright. 1s??? The Cameron

     Fracastorius 1973 Mar 09 UT ~19:57 Robinson (Devon, UK) saw a 
     Moon Blink (colour) in this crater. This crater is long 
     suspected of giving permanent blinks due to natural colour. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2017-Sep-25 UT 21:59-23:55 Ill=29% Mare_Crisium observed by Emmett on 1826-4-12

     Mare Crisium 1826 Apr 12 UT 20:00 Observed by Emmett (England?) "Black 
     moving haze or cloud". NASA catalog weight=2 (low). NASA catalog ID 
     109. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2017-Sep-25 UT 22:14-23:10 Ill=30% S_Pole observed by Kemp_A on 2011-4-8

     South Pole 2011 Apr 08 UT 19:30-20:00 A.Kemp (Mold, Flintshire, UK) observed that the 
     Leibnitz peaks at the southern pole stood out sharply. However one of the peaks was “shining 
     like a spot light. So bright that I couldn’t make out its shape”. – image clear and steady with 
     excellent transparency and seeing in the 70mm f/13 refractor (25mm and 10mm eyepieces). 
     Inspections during the above time period revealed no changes in brightness. Previous 
     observations of this area had never shown such an unusual brightness, and Arthur likened the 
     brightness to “a maximum brightness of Venus shining amongst 2nd magnitude stars”. The 
     observer was an experienced observer. ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2017-Sep-25 UT 22:35-00:08 Ill=30% Grimaldi observed by Thinon on 1969-7-19

     Grimaldi 1969 Jul 19 UT 20:39-20:45 Delaye (France, 25cm 
     refractor) saw a bright bluish spot near Grimaldi. 20:43 a 
     flash was seen by Thinon. Delaye saw flashes at 20:44 and 
     20:45. Between 21:00 and 23:00 (J. M. L.) da Silva (Rio de 
     Janeiro, Brazil, 19.5" refractor) saw a bright spot on the W 
     (IAU??) of Grimaldi. However there is a bright spot near 
     Grimaldi, so this maybe normal. NASA ID = 1167. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=2.


2017-Sep-25 UT 22:48-00:11 Ill=30% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1975-12-8

     On 1975 Dec 08 at UT18:00-20:40 P.W. Foley (Wilmington, Kent, 
     UK, 12" reflector, x60-x624, seeing II, slight mist) found 
     Aristarchus to be less well visible than features such as: 
     Grimaldi, Reiner, Darwin/Byrgius, Kepler, Plato and Sinus 
     Iridum. Earthshine was exceptionally good tonight and was 
     orange/red in colour. Photographs were taken and these confirmed 
     the apparent dullness of Aristarchus. ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2017-Sep-25 UT 22:48-00:24 Ill=30% Gassendi observed by Jackson_L on 1990-3-31

     On 1990 Mar 31 at UT 21:30 L. Jackson (England, UK?) observed a red 
     glow in Earthshine in Gassendi as shown in a sketch. Apparently 
     Gassendi can often show up red colours (according to Cameron) but 
     rarely is this seen in Earthshine. Foley saw the sketch and suspects 
     that the location was Gassendi. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=397 and 
     weight=2. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2017-Sep-25 UT 23:47-01:17 Ill=30% Alphonsus observed by Wilkins_HP on 1949-6-1

     Alphonsus area? 1949 Jun 01 UT 22:06 H.P. Wilkins (Kent, UK, 6" 
     reflector x200) observed a bright white 1 sec stationary (mag 
     3?) flash in Earthhsine, close to the central meridian, and due 
     E of Theophilus (potentially in the general area of Alphonsus?). 
     The flash was approximately 6 km in diameter. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     Barbosa(Fortaleza, Brazil, 2" refractor, x160, seeing=fair) 
     observed an obscuration over Peirce, in particular they could 
     not see the crater wall and the crater itself was like a black 
     pit. (Apollo 13 watch). The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1238 and 
     weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     On 1969 May22 at UT2045-2105 Wald (Zurich, Switzerland) observed the 
     pinkish colour in Aristarchus was less marked tonight. The astronauts 
     were alerted and at 22:12 reported no activity but could see the crater 
     and Earthshine was strong near the terminator. Apollo 10 watch, 
     spacecraft far from the terminator. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1134

     On 1984 Jul 05 at UT 00:00-01:25 Marshall (Medelin, Columbia) found 
     Proclus to be much brighter than Censorinus (which of the two was 
     abnormal is a question) - though he thought that Censorinus looked 
     dull. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=247 and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=1.


2017-Sep-26 UT 21:52-23:31 Ill=39% Aristarchus observed by Delaye on 1969-7-20

     On 1969 Jul 20 at UT 19:55-20:10 Delaye, Thinon, Donas, and Jourdran 
     (Marseilles, France, 10" refractor, x60) saw between 19:55-20:04UT 
     Aristarchus to be bright and in it pulsations with 10 sec duration. At 
     20:05UT it's spot brightened, at 20:08:50-20:35:50UT brightening and 
     pulsations of variable duration. At 20:55:50UT just a feeble flash. 
     Cameron comments that this is probably not atmpsheric effects as the 
     period is too long - also it was during the Apollo 11 watch. The 
     Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1175 and th weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     On 1969 May 22 at UT23:20 an unknown observer reported some 
     brightenings with pulsations in Aristarchus crater, Cameron suspects 
     atmospheric aberrations. This was during the Apollo 10 watch. The 
     Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1136 and weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2017-Sep-27 UT 00:41-02:08 Ill=39% Censorinus observed by Nicolini on 1970-4-12

     On 1970 Apr 12 at UT 22:10-22:40 Censorinus was observed by Jean 
     Nicolini (Sao Paulo, Brazil, 12" reflector, x680). The crater 
     had a visible reddish hue--gap in bright area on western slope. 
     Colourless to pink to reddish. Environs also involved. 
     Photographs were taken. (Apollo 13 watch). Cameron 1978 catalog

     On 1969 Jul 20 at 22:50-23:15UT Jean Nicolini (Sao Paulo, Brazil, 12" reflector x430, S=II.5-III.5) saw a weak reddish 
     area on the north west(east?) wall of Eudoxus crater. An English 
     Moon Blink device showed it dark in blue and opaque in red. 
     Reddening remained unchanged while comparing it to adjacent 
     region and Aristotles. Colour index was toward dirty orange. 
     Colour most apparent in the good moments of seeing and 
     disappeared in the poorer moments of seeing, Cameron says that 
     this is opposite to what was expected if the effect was 
     atmospheric in origin and no colour was seen in Aristotles.

     On 1991 May 21 at UT05:30-06:15 J. Green (Orangevale, CA, USA, 11" 
     reflector) photgrapphed a broad bright band stretching east and north 
     of Cassini crater in 3 exposures taken 10 minutes apart. This 
     photographic sequence shows a gradual widening towards Cassini and by 
     the 3rd exposure the band is touching (and then obscuring) Cassini. A 
     "fan" was visible in the north east and WSW directions, later this was 
     seen as rays and this was even seen in the view finder of the camera.

     (Frimley, 12" reflector, 6mm Ortho eyepiece, seeing III-IV) 
     Orange discolouration seen on ESE crater floor. Moon blink 
     tried, but no blink detected. By 21:10 the effect had lessened, 
     but was still orange. By 21:50-21:58 the effect was smaller and 
     perhaps more on the SE of the floor. Colour confirmed by Foley. 
     Fitton may also have been observing. At 22:00 A.C. Cook observed 
     and commented that a darkish, perhaps brown-orange colour seen - 
     but suspected it was probably spurious colour - but by now the 
     seeing was V. J.H. Robinson, whilst doing a Moon Blink sweep of 
     several features, including Theophilus, had not noticed anything 
     unusual 18:50-19:10. By 22:30-22:35UT, he still could not detect 
     a blink, but noticed intermittent darkining on the shaded area 
     on the E. floor, but seeing was now IV. The darkening was more

     On 1975 Apr 19 UT 21:09 P. Foley (Kent, UK), detected blue in 
     Plato on east. Fiton at UT20:45 found blue along the south wall 
     at the east (IAU?) end, which was very bright white. Blueness 
     extended towards the large landslip at the east of the formation. 
     Immediately north of the landslip, where the bright wall curves 
     first westwards, then again northwards, red could be faintly 
     detected, folloowed by a very faint blue. All other parts of the 
     formation were normal. Examination with a Moon blink device 
     revealed no colour blink. J-H Robinson also found blue, with red 
     on the west wall (exterior?). By 21:30UT Fitton found Plato to be 
     normal and so was Proclus, though he did find Epigenes (bright 
     cresecent of east wall only) slightly blue to the N.W and red 
     to the S.E. Mare Crisium was normal. Prominent spurious colour 
     seen on Venus, but it was low in the sky, with blue to the north 
     and red to the south. However J.H. Reading, managed to see the 
     north east floor blurred and slightly blue from 22:45-23:00UT.

2017-Sep-29 UT 21:52-22:48 Ill=67% Copernicus observed by Burt_G on 2006-6-5

     Observer made a drawing over a period of 30 minutes. Upon
     examining drawing, and comparing with photos made under
     similar illumination was struck by the abnormality of a
     a small white blob in the north east corner of the shadowed
     floor. There should be no raised topography between the wall
     and the central peaks that could give rise to this. The making
     of the sketch overlapped with an earlier drawing made by Rony
     de Laet (Belgium) which did not show this blob. Subsequent attempts
     to find sketches/images at very similar illumination angles have
     failed to show the blob in the north east corner of the chadowed

     Scarcely a trace of nebulae tonight. As long as to June 10 at
     2000UT? A little blackness remained. (P. Moore thinks it
     was a LTP, WSC it was a permanent feature?) Drawing. Seen
     by Nevelius Emmett, J. Boroughbridge, England. The 2006
     Extension catalog by Cameron assigns an ID No. of 4 and a
     weight of 1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.
