     close beneath Mons Blanc at the west foot, in the dark, a small 5th 
     magnitude, speck of light. Its round shadow was sometimes black, 
     sometimes grey. Cameron suspects that this is the same as her TLP 
     report No. 50. the Cameron 1978 catalog ID=62 and weight=4. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2017-Jul-01 UT 00:00-01:17 Ill=49% Plato observed by Schroter on 1789-9-26

     On 1789 Sep 29 at UT04:25? Schroter (Lillienthal, Germany) noted 
     1'18.5" south east of plato was a whitish bright spot shining somewhat 
     hazily, 4-5"in diameter and at 5th magnitude. He never saw this again. 
     The spot became conspicuous at times and then disappeared. There was 
     nothing else similar in Earthshine. Note that the year might have been 
     1788? The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=50 and the weight=3. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=3.

2017-Jul-01 UT 21:05-23:01 Ill=59% Werner observed by Lippert_RM on 1953-9-16

     On 1953 Sep 16 UT03:00 R.M. Lippert (San Diego, CA, USA, 20cm 
     Cassegrain reflector, x90)saw a bright magnitude 1 flash on the 
     Moon, that was probably on the east rim of Werner(?) crater. It 
     is unclear if the observer meant it was really magnitude 1, or 
     was what a magnitude 1 star would have looked like. The flash 
     was yellow-orange in colour. Observation described in the 
     "Observations and Comments" column in the December, 1953 
     Strolling Astronomer (Vol. 7, No. 12), on page 170. The ALPO/BAA

     Pickering 1971 Jan 04 UTC 20:29-20:37 Observed by Collier (London, 
     England) "Between Saunder and Rhaeticus, apparently coming from Pick. 
     After 2027h it dimished with extraordinary swiftness, like a light goes 
     out. (experienced observer)" NASA catalog weight=?. NASA catalog ID #

     the IAU renamed some craters.


2017-Jul-01 UT 21:51-23:27 Ill=59% Proclus observed by Darling_D on 1989-12-5

     On 1989 Dec 05 D. Darling of Sun Praire, WI, USA, saw two dark spots on 
     the SE floor of Proclus. The first dark spot was seen through  3" 
     refractor and then also through a 12.5" reflector (35x and 154x). 
     Seeing was S=10 and T=5. He noticed that at 23:00UT the wall spot was 
     less well defined. Darling also comments that he observed reflecting 
     glint, almost as if from a glass surface - he had not seen this effect 
     before. A telephone alert was issued and Caruso verified the spots. 
     Cameron comments that the spots were not shadows because the Sun was at 
     an altitude of 52 deg at Proclus at the time and she states that the 
     steepest slope ever mesured on the Moon was 52 deg and not inside 
     Proclus. Other observers observing were: Weier (6.5" refractor x284 and 
     S=3/10), Caruso (8" reflector x100), and Cameron. The Cameron 2006 
     catalog extesnion ID was 382 and the weight=1. ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     refractor?) "Shaped like a half moon with E. edge missing. Appeared 
     diffuse. Messier A was sharp & completely defined. Was sure there was 
     fog there. Next day same appear. Shadow was diffused before noon, Mess.

2017-Jul-01 UT 22:31-23:37 Ill=59% Curtis observed by Williams_AS on 1882-8-21

     Williams of the UK, on 1892 Aug 21 at 19:30UT (Moon's age 7.9 days)
     noticed a spot at least half as bright, and as large as Picard, near
     to Picard crater. This observation was reported in the Astronomical
     Register of the Royal Astronomical Society and is not included in the
     Cameron catalogs. It is one of many measurements of the brightness of 
     this spot for different illumination angles and is one of three 
     outlying brightness points spotted on a graph by Willaims. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=3.

     poor) observed the following in Plato: "Sketch shows 8 spots -- 5 
     craters showed interior shad., 1 completely filled, but no others seen 
     despite several hrs. of study. Spots that should have been seen were 
     missing. poor seeing converts floor into shimmering shapeless blob. Has

2017-Jul-02 UT 02:35-03:15 Ill=60% Proclus observed by Mobberley_M on 1987-11-28

     On 1987 Nov 28 UT at 20:14 (possibly earlier)-20:44 M.Mobberley saw the 
     northern rim of Proclus very bright for first quarter. There were 
     streaks half way up the wall and these seemed to vary in brightness and 
     length in seconds. Seeing was at first suspected but became doubtful 
     over this being a cause. There was also another bright streak that 
     changed brightness over 5 minute intervals (Cameron says that this is 
     not atmospheric) Apparently video was taken and confirms the effects. A 
     sketch was also made. M. Cook detected a blink with coloured filters 
     i.e. being brighter in red light (Also apparently confirmed by 
     Louderback). Estimated the north west wall was x3 brighter than 
     Censorinus. Censorinus itself varied in brightness as measured using 
     CED devices. P. Foley decided that the north was was much brighter than 
     Proclus (beyond the limits of the scale. However both Moore and Mason 
     agreed that the north wall of Proclus was very bright but shimmering 
     around in the bad seeing. They did not see any bright spots either. 
     A.C. Cook (20:18-20:44UT) confirmed that the north wall of Proclus was 
     very bright. Towards the end of the observing period the north wall had 
     faded from this maximum brightness - Cameron suspects that this might 
     have been as a result of an eyepiece misting up. The TLP was also 
     observed by Foley (Maidstone, Kent, UK) and he reported: "Bright spot 
     on north wall, Moon blink reaction". A BAA Lunar Section report with 
     extracts from the 2006 Cameron catalog. Cameron 2006 catalog ID=315 and 
     weight=4 (or 5?). ALPO/BAA weight=3. Apart from Louderback, all 
     observers were based in the UK and had a vatiety of telescopes and 
     observings conditions.


2017-Jul-02 UT 03:05-03:15 Ill=60% Censorinus observed by Cook_MC on 1987-11-28

     On 1987 Nov 28 M. Cook (Frimley, UK) found Censorinus varied in 
     brightness as measured using CED devices. P. Foley decided that the 
     north was was much brighter than Proclus (beyond the limits of the 
     scale). However both Moore and Mason agreed that the north wall of 
     Proclus was very bright but shimmering around in the bad seeing. They 
     did not see any bright spots either. A.C. Cook (20:18-20:44UT) 
     confirmed that the north wall of Proclus was very bright. Towards the 
     end of the observing period the north wall had faded from this maximum 
     brightness - Cameron suspects that this might have been as a result of 
     an eyepiece misting up. The TLP was also observed by Foley (Maidstone, 
     Kent, UK) and he reported: "Bright spot on north wall, Moon blink 
     reaction". A BAA Lunar Section report with extracts from the 2006 
     Cameron catalog. Cameron 2006 catalog ID=315 and weight=4 (or 5?).

2017-Jul-02 UT 20:50-21:20 Ill=68% Eratosthenes observed by Hill_H on 1947-1-30

     Eratosthenes 1947 Jan 30 Mean Col. 16deg. Observed by Hill (UK) "Main 
     peak of massive central mountain group appeared to be in a shadowless 
     having regard to it's claimed height of 6,600 ft. The whole of the 
     floor to the west should have still been in darkness. Instead 
     immediately to the west was a dark (intensity 1.5-2) region extending 
     almost to the foot of the bright inner wall and very diffuse in 
     outline. The observation could not be followed through due to 
     increasing cloud, but on the following night all was normal."

2017-Jul-02 UT 22:36-00:10 Ill=68% Proclus observed by Darling_D on 1989-12-6

     On 1989 Dec 06 at 23:09-23:34UT D. Darling of Sun Praire, WI, USA (3" 
     refractor x36 and x90, and then a 12.5" reflector at x64, S=7/10 and T=
     4, saw dark spots in Proclus (not as dark as those from 5th Dec 1989). 
     Two telescopes were used and the bigger of these revealed some shading 
     on the floor of Proclus approximately a third as intense as he had seen 
     the previous night. A sketch was made. The TLP finished by 22:34UT. 
     Cameron comments that the dark patches could not be due to shadow as 
     the altitude of the Sun was too high at proclus. The Cameron 2006 
     extension catalog ID=383 and the weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     On 1981 May 12 UT 22:00? M.C. Cook (Frimley, UK and using a 12" 
     reflector), noticed that Censorinus was very bright, fuzzy and 
     occasionally brighter than Proclus. However both Foley (Kent, UK) and 
     Amery (Reading, UK) using a C.E.D. found that Proclus was brighter than 
     Censorinus as it had been during April and May 1981. However Chapman 
     obtained the reverse of this. Cameron 2006 extension catalog ID=138 and 
     weught=3. ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     On 1902 Aug 13 at UT 00:50 Jones (Philadelphia, Penn, USA, 6" 
     reflector, x250) observed a brilliant star-like point near Lambert 
     (21W, 25N) on the dark side of the terminator. It was a magnitude 3-4 
     round spurious disk and had an interference or diffraction ring. 
     Resolved into a very brilliant spot as the terminator neared it. 
     Cameron says that thios was too far from the terminator to be a sunlit 
     peak? The report is given as Aug 12 in Middlehursts's catalog. The

     On 1955 Aug 27 at UT 01:51 McCorkle (Memphis, Tennessee, USA, 6.5" 
     reflector, x200) observed a 2nd magnitude bright flare on the dark side 
     of the Moon. This remained steady, fading slightly before abruptly 
     disappearing. Cameron suggests that this might have been a meteor. The 
     Cameron 1978 catalog ID=604 and weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2017-Jul-03 UT 02:24-04:10 Ill=69% Aristarchus observed by Madej_P on 1984-12-31

     Although the crater was on the night side, a small bright spot
     was seen. This was blue, almost UV, and equivalent to a star of
     magnitude 2. It flashed over intervals of about 30 seconds
     and changed in colour from UV to blue. The BAA Lunar Section
     TLP network was alerted. Mobberly and J.Cook did not see much
     although J. Cook may have seen something, but located else where?
     Cameron lists this as a confirmed? observation? The Cameron
     2006 TLP xtension catalog has this TLP with an ID No. of 258
     and a weight of 4. The ALPO/BAA weight is 2.

     2004 Jan 02 UT 09:05 (approx) M. Collins (Palmeston North, New 
     Zealand, ETX 90, seeing 3, clear) saw a possible(?) flash north 
     of Carlini D at about 16W, 35N in adverted vision. It lasted

2017-Jul-03 UT 23:24-00:55 Ill=77% Mare_Imbrium observed by Caruso_J on 1979-8-3

     A region of the Mare Imbrium was extremely bright, giving
     a reading of 8 out of 10 on the Elger scale. Cameron notes
     that from photos of the Full Moon, the area appears to
     normally be the brightness of Archimedes floor i.e. 3.5 out
     of 10 on the Elger scale. Atmospheric seeing was excellent
     and the observer could see a lot of fine detail with their
     2.4" and 3" refractors. Cameron 2006 catalog extension ID=62
     and weight=3.


2017-Jul-04 UT 01:00-01:51 Ill=78% Curtis observed by Williams_AS on 1882-8-23

     Williams of the UK, on 1892 Aug 23 at Moon's age 10.0 days, noticed a 
     spot now rated at +1.5 (in brightness) that had been seen on the 21st 
     Aug, near Picard. Williams comments that this is the only obsewrvation 
     that departs "much" from the curve of diurnal brightness. The spot was 
     descibed as "nearly as large as Picard and nearly half as bright. This 
     observation was reported in the Astronomical Register of the Royal 
     Astronomical Society and is not included in the Cameron catalogs. It is 
     one of many measurements of the brightness of this spot for different 
     illumination angles and is one of three outlying brightness points 
     spotted on a graph by Willaims. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

2017-Jul-04 UT 01:55-03:15 Ill=78% Moltke observed by Marshall_KP on 1984-2-12

     The UT given in the Cameron 2006 extension catalog are: 20:58, 23:25-
     02:20 and 01:40-04:00, however it is not clear what UT applies to which 
     of the observers or the two features reported as having TLP on that 
     night. On 1984 Feb 12-13 Marshall (South Anerica, seeing=III-II) 
     noticed that Moltke was very bright with a fuzzy violet hue - he had 
     never seen it like this before. Cameron 2006 catalog extension TLP ID=
     240 and weight=2. ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2017-Jul-04 UT 01:55-03:15 Ill=78% Plato observed by Marshall_KP on 1984-2-12

     The UT given in the Cameron 2006 extension catalog are: 20:58, 23:25-
     02:20 and 01:40-04:00, however it is not clerr what UT applies to which 
     of the observers or the two features reported as having TLP on that 
     night. On 1984 Feb 12-13 Marshall (South Anerica, seeing=III-II) saw 
     initially no craterlets in Plato, despite the Moon being at a high 
     altitude. At 01:45UT the northwest corner of Plato was red. Again no 
     other craterlets showed. He found the surrounding wall to be too bright 
     and this was confirmed by Crater Extenction Device readings and had 
     problems focussing on the crater. By 02:00-02:50UT he noticed 
     variability in the visibility of the craterlets. By 03:48UT the central 
     craterlet was much brighter than before and the crater doublet had 
     brightened but the southern craterlet was still invisible. Cameron 
     comments that Marshall was a very experienced observer. A. Cook (of 
     Frimley, UK) obtained a photodiode line scan image of Plato. The 
     brightness of the north west wall was brighter than the bright area on 
     the west wall. Marshall and Mosely both saw a dark area on the floor of 
     Plato close to the south wall (from clock position of 11 o'clock. There 
     was a prominent white spot on the floor and the central craterlet was 
     seen, but only under good conditions. Mosely does not discuss the west 
     and north west wall brughtnesses that were seen earlier by Cook and 
     Marshall. Cameron 2006 catalog extension TLP ID=240 and weight=2.

     Plato 1982 Jun 02 UT 22:00. Mobberley could not see the 
     central craterlet on the floor of Plato tonight. Foley notes 
     that he could only just see the central craterlet on nights of 
     2-5th Jun and it was of reduced in brightness from normal. 
     North reported that the floor seemed nearly black, but 
     brighter in a green filter (x144 magnification used). All 
     three observers compared the Plato area to other areas for 
     reference. All the above seems normal, apart from the floor

     On 1982 Apr 04 at UT 23:30-00:25 P. Madej (Huddersfield, UK, 7cm 
     refractor & 16cm reflector) noticed the TLP in his refractor 
     first of all at x25. So stepped up the magnification to x111 and 
     found the crater brightness not what he was expecting. He tried 
     different filters but found no difference in brightness. With 
     the 16cm reflector however some changes in brightness were 
     dected. The crater has a very pale yellow colour and it was 
     slightly darker than Lacus Somniorum. P. Foley tried to confirm

2017-Jul-06 UT 01:02-02:45 Ill=91% Vallis_Schroteri observed by Gray_R on 2004-11-24

     Aristarchus Area 2004 Nov 22 UT 04:58-05:49 Observed by Gray 
     (Winemucca, NV, USA, 152mm f/9 refractor, seeing 4-5, trasparency 4-5, 
     x114, x228) "Blinked Herodotus with Wratten filters Blue 38A and Red 
     25. The illuminated west crater wall stood out brilliantly in blue 
     light, much more so than in white light. This was true also of 
     Aristarchus. Red light did not increase contrasts in Herodotus any more 
     than they were in white light. Shadows in Herodotus appeared as black 
     as the night west of the terminator and remained that way throughout 
     the observing period. No TLP seen in Herodotus tonight. A possible TLP 
     was seen to the west of Herodotus near the terminus of Schroters 
     Valley. It was noted at the beginning of the observing period that 
     there were four very bright spots of light, one near the end of 
     Schroters Valley, the other three grouped together a little farther 
     north. Although not far from the terminator they were definitely east 
     of it. It was noted that all of them nearly vanished in the Blue 38A 
     filter while Aristarchus and the rim of Herodotus gleamed brilliantly. 
     At 5:19UT it was noted that the most brilliant of the four lights, the 
     one near the terminus of Schroters Valley, had faded almost to 
     invisibility in white light. When first seen it had been brighter than 
     Aristarchus. It remained very dim after this through the remainder of 
     the observing period, and was unchanged at 7:35-7:49UT when I again 
     examined the area. The other three bright spots remained brilliant and 
     unchanged."

     On 1984 Feb 14 P. Moore (Selsey, UK) observed that Plato was darker 
     than the nearby mare and no detail could be seen on the floor or the 
     eastern wall - the later was obscured. At 23:40UT some dimming was 
     still present on the north east wall and still no detail on the floor 
     of Plato. Cook noticed that the eastern floor close to the wall was 
     misty and also noted no detail on the floor. Amery though noted that 
     all parts of the floor were sharp although some darkening was visible 
     in the north west and a hint of obscurtion. The east wall though was 
     quite sharp. Mosely could see the central craterlet but from 8-6

     Aristarchus floor (point F) brightened rapidly from an intensity of 5.2 
     to 6, however at 07:08 UT the spot returned to normal. He also noticed 
     that the bands on the walls varied every few minutes. A mist like 
     appearance was seen on the floor of Aristarchus. Through a red filter 
     he could see through the haze, but floor detail could not be seen

     Peter Foley (Kent, UK, 8" reflector, seeing=II) noticed that
     the floor beneath the north wall, and the area over the north
     wall were indistinct (almost out of focus). Despite looking
     elsewhere in the crater and surrounds, no other blurring
     (obscuration of detail) could be seen, indeed everywhere else
     was sharp and detailed. Foley tried several eyepieces but this
     made no difference. He used a crater extinction device but
     found no variations in brightness. There was a slight
     darkening when he used a red filter in the Moon Blink device.
     The obscuration effect weakened between UT20:56 and 21:10,
     was difficult to see at 21:13 and had finished by 00:15.

     On 1980 Apr 28, Louderback (South Bend, WA, USA using a 8" reflector 
     and a 2.5" refractor) observed a very bright reg region on top of the 
     south west rim of Aristarchus crater. This was on the same side as the 
     ray system between Aristarchus and Herodotus. Louderback noticed some 
     chromatic aberation - blue where he had seen the red patch before.
     Louderback suspects chromatic aberation was the cause although did not 
     see red in that region ever again. "Patch was between his observation 
     points A and C. Point C was 5 points brighter in the red filter than in 
     the blue." A sketch was made. Cameron suspects that the TLP was real.

     Louderback observed that the south west wall was a creamy deep yellow.
     There was also strong fluorescent blue on the west wall of the Cobra
     Head - Schroter's Valley area and this was similar to the violet glare
     seen on Aristarchus at times. Violet was seen between Aristarchus and
     the Cobra Head. Seeing coditions were poor. Brightening of a point
     near C occurred roughly every 10-15 seconds and lasted 0.5 sec -
     (Cameron concludes that this was not due to the Earth's atmosphere).
     A 0.2 step drop in brightness was seen on point A (twin spots).
     Point C had reduced by 0.6 steps. Elsewhere was stable in brightness.

2017-Jul-07 UT 04:03-05:32 Ill=96% Aristarchus observed by Louderback_D on 1979-8-6

     Aristarchus normal in red and blue filters however the
     Cobra Head part of Schroter's Valley was brighter in blue.
     Indeed it was very dull in red - Louderback says that this
     was not surprising as the whole areas around Aristarchus is
     brighter in blue. Louderback is an experienced observer

2017-Jul-09 UT 03:14-04:37 Ill=100% Aristarchus observed by Darling_D on 1989-10-15

     David Darling observed bright glittering on Aristarchus. This
     was followed by a flare up in brightness at 00:38:05 UT in the
     comet-like ray area of the crater equivalent in intensity to the
     central peak. Then he saw another one on the north east rim of 
     Aristarchus of the same brightness. A third flare was seen at
     00:49UT in south of Herodotus, on the comet-like ray. Another
     two flares were observed at 00:56UT on the north west rim of
     Aristarchus. Darling suspects that these effects were due
     to seeing effects and Cameron agrees. However Weier suspects
     that they were TLP? Brightness measurements by Weier were for
     the south west rim of Herodotus 8.0, for a spot at the Cobra's
     Head 9.0 and 7.5 for C.H. Cameron apparently did not see the flashes
     but did suspect that the interior of Aristarchus was a bit unusual.

     On 1978 Aug 19 at UT02:45-04:00 Porter (Naragansetts, RI, USA, using a 
     6" reflector, Seing = 6/10) noticed blue on the north east corner of 
     Aristarchus and an orange glow on the south east wall. They detected no 
     movement or change in brightness. The observer used both eyes, to make 
     sure it was not an eye defect, and three filters: red Wratten 25, blue 
     Wratten 82 and Violet Wratten 47. Porter found that the colours faded 
     for a duration of 5 minutes and then returned. Their right eye gave a 
     good view and using their left eye they suspected that it was 0.5 steps 
     brighter than the remainder of the crater. The suspected colour 
     remained visible, even under moments of good seeing conditions. The 
     colour eventually faded over time and was eventually gone. Porter 
     reportd seein gcolour here on the following night. Apparently other 
     bright spots showed no colour. Fitton suggests that the filters used 
     confirm that the south east wass was definitely red in colour. The

     9N) with rays to the south east whilst he looked through a finder 
     scope. Moore, who studied the drawing, suggests that the area of the 
     flash was near Copernicus. However Cameron says this cannot be the case 
     if the flash was in darkness as mentioned in the BAA Lunar Section

2017-Jul-11 UT 05:57-07:31 Ill=96% Aristarchus observed by Pedler_J on 1990-1-13

     On 1990 Jan 13 at UT 22:15-23:05 J. Pedler (Bristol, UK, seeing=III and 
     transparency=excellent, no spurious colour) detected a blue region on 
     the north of Aristarchus, varying in sharpness/diffuseness. The crater 
     rim in this region could not be descerned. Eleswhere the crater rim was 
     normal as too were other features. When a Moon blink device was used, 
     no colour blink was detected, however through the blue filter the 
     suspected area was bright and the crater rim indistinct. Whereas 
     through the red filter the area looked perfectly normal. At 22:30UT the 
     effect had vanished and everywhere was normal. The Cameron 2006 catalog

2017-Jul-28 UT 21:06-21:21 Ill=33% Piccolomini observed by Cameron_W on 1990-8-26

     On 1990 Aug 26 at UT 02:30-03:30 W. Cameron (Sedona, AZ, USA, 8" 
     reflector, x110 and x220) observed that Proclus and Piccolomini craters 
     both had a pink colour inside them. At a higher magnification of x220 
     Piccolomini was still pink and it was stronger on the central peak's 
     wesern side. The cameron 2006 catalog ID=407 and the weight=3. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1 as the Moon was not above the horizon at the date and UT given. 


2017-Jul-28 UT 21:06-21:21 Ill=33% Proclus observed by Cameron_W on 1990-8-26

     On 1990 Aug 26 at UT 02:30-03:30 W. Cameron (Sedona, AZ, USA, 8" 
     reflector, x110, x220, seeing=good) observed that the north wall of 
     Proclus crater was the brightest part of the crater, indeed very 
     bright. Proclus and Picolomini had pink colours inside them. CED 
     brightness measurements were as follows: "Proc. at 100x 4.0, 4.0; at 
     200x 3.4, 3.4; Theop. 3.5, 3.9; 3.5; Herc. 2.5, 2.75; 3.5; Atlas 2.8, 
     2.5, 3.0; Posidonius 3.0." The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=407 and the 
     weight=3. The BAA/ALPO weight=1 as the Moon was not above
     the horizon at the UT given.


2017-Jul-28 UT 21:06-21:21 Ill=33% Theophilus observed by Cameron_W on 1990-8-26

     On 1990 Aug 26 at UT 02:30-03:30 W. Cameron (Sedona, AZ, USA, 8" 
     reflector, x110 and x220, seeing=good) observed that the west wall of 
     Theophilus crater was red (on terminator). However Posidonius was also 
     on the terminator and no colour was seen elsewhere along the 
     terminator, however Proclus and Piccolomini had pink interiors. At a 
     higher power of x220 a prismatic effect was seen on the terminator in 
     Theophilus and opther craters - "even on W rim of a crater due W of 
     Theoph.". CED measurements of Theophilus... 3.5, 3.9, 3.5. The Cameron 
     2006 catalog ID=407 and the weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=1
     because the Moon was below the horizon at this time. 


2017-Jul-28 UT 22:08-23:58 Ill=33% Aristarchus observed by Elger_TG on 1867-4-9

     On 1867 Apr 09 at UT 19:30-21:00 Elger(Liverpool? UK, 4"? aperture 
     telescope) observed that Aristarchus was shining like a 7th magnitude 
     star-like point, becoming fainter, almost extinguished at 9PM. He had 
     seen lights before but never so strong. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=151 
     and he weight=4. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

2017-Jul-29 UT 21:38-23:25 Ill=43% Messier observed by Robinson_JH on 1981-2-10

     Messier 1981 Feb 10 UT 19:20-20:10 TLP discoevered by Hedley 
     Robinson (Devon, England) "Messier was brighter than Aristarchus 
     in both red and blue filters and also appeared indistinct, later 
     becoming invisible - lost in a bright streak. In comparison 
     Aristarchus was clear. Another observer, Amery confirmed that 
     Aristarchus was sharp in appearance but Messier certainly was 
     not. Cook likewiese found Messier not to be as sharp as Messier 
     A dueto a big shadow in Messier A. Pedler found that the sun 
     facing wall of Messier was OK but that the shadow was changing 
     from black to grey periodically at intervals of 2-3 minutes to a 
     few seconds. By contrast he found that Messier A remained quite 
     well defined. He tried red and blue filters but found no blink 
     effect. At 20:23UT Pedler found that the shadow had stabilized 
     to a shade of "mid grey" although remaining ill-defined. North 
     also found that Messier A was distinct but Messier itself was 
     ill-defined. Moore found the same thing but thinks that this is 
     normal for Messier under this illumination to appear indistinct. 
     More also saw the grey interior shadow. Price saw similar 
     appearance to Moore and suspected that this was normal for this 
     stage in illumination. Ratcliffe suspected everything normal - 
     just commenting that Messier was smaller and no detail in 
     comparison to Messier A. Madej and Taylor provided a sketch that 
     showed again a grey interior and merging with the east 
     wall/mare. Foley found Messier's pale grey interior to be un-
     focusable but in comparison Messier A was sharp. He says that he 
     would expect a grey interior and the east wall to merge with the 
     mare. However the complete loss of deatil and variability were 
     not normal. Cameron comments that the Kuiper atlas confirms the 
     fuzzy indistinct appearance of Messier and that a Lunar Orbiter 
     picture shows a grey shadow. The Cameron extended catalog 
     weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2017-Jul-29 UT 23:13-01:08 Ill=43% Julius_Caesar observed by Colesanti_C on 1993-6-25

     On 25 Jun 1993 at UT 23:30-23:52 Carlos Colesanti (Mairinque, 
     Brazil) obtained two CCD images of Julius Caesar crater and 
     noticed a brilliant fuzzy area on the rim of the crater. This 
     appeared in both images and resembled a fuzzy white blob. Note 
     that this is a REA-Brazil observation. ALPO/BAA weight=1. 
     Cameron (2006) ID=463.

     from the central peak. Foley saw Aristarchus as a "translucent glow". 
     Moore, Pedler and Ratcliff could not find Aristarchus. Earlier though 
     Amery (Reading, UK) had found Aristarchus to be sharply defined.
