     Bullialdus 1979 Oct 31 UT 20:20-20:30 G.W. Amery (Reading, UK) 
     observed a plateau area to be dark and distinct in blue light 
     (Wratten 44a), but only just visibly in red (Wratten 25) and

2017-Oct-01 UT 16:04-16:08 Ill=82% SE_Limb observed by Brook_C on 2003-8-8

     SE limb of Moon 2003 Aug 08 UTC 20:50 Observer Brook (Plymouth, UK)
     x70 60mm OG on a very hot evening, when I saw a fountain-like 
     appearance suddenly "squirt" from the SE limb. Seeing not particularly 
     good, but not so poor as to account for what was seen. Duration of 
     phenomenom perhaps a fraction of a second, hight of pehaps a few miles. 
     Thought I saw another one a few minutes later. - observer suspected hot 
     weather and Moon's low altitude" The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2017-Oct-01 UT 16:14-17:15 Ill=82% Unknown observed by Dewitt_R on 2004-7-28

     2004 Jul 28 UT 07:25-07:31 R. Dewitt (Transparancy very poor due 
     to forest fire pollution - Moon looks red, USA, location: Mill 
     Creek, WA) observed several pin point-like orange flashes of 
     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.


2017-Oct-01 UT 16:28-17:56 Ill=82% 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-Oct-01 UT 16:46-17:40 Ill=82% 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.

     On 1938 Mar 13 at UT 04:00-06:00 Barker (Chestnut, England, UK) noted a 
     slight reddish colour in Plato. However Fox (Newark, UK, 6.5" 
     reflector, x240) saw none on the south east wall, but instead saw a 
     yellowish glow on the southern floor at the same time (confirmation?).

     reflector, x240) saw approximately 7-8 diameters from Aristarchus (72W, 
     15N) a star-like point on the dark side - uncertain if this weas on the 
     limb or inside the disk of the Moon. Cameron 2006 catalog ID=185 and 
     weight=1. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2017-Oct-02 UT 16:05-17:07 Ill=89% Aristarchus observed by Ventzke on 1972-4-25

2017-Oct-02 UT 16:05-16:06 Ill=89% Proclus observed by Cook_MC on 1990-3-9

     Proclus 1990 Mar 09 UT 00:12-00:13 Observed by Marie Cook (Frimley, UK, 
     3.5" Questar telescope) observed a "long plume of light" the brightness 
     was the same as the wall region. It went from the southern rim about 
     half of the way across to the centre in the "northerly". The plume 
     feature was not seen at higher magnifications. Change in brightness 
     also noted. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=394 and the weight=1. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2017-Oct-02 UT 16:11-17:58 Ill=89% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1975-3-24

     vivid blue/green in Aristarchus. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2017-Oct-02 UT 16:36-18:33 Ill=90% Herodotus observed by Knott_J on 1998-12-30

     Herodotus 1998 Dec 30 UT 18:50-19:10 observed by J.Knott 
     (Liverpool, UK 22cm Newtonian, x216, seeing II, transparency 
     good). Observer reports a bright spot, as bright as the 
     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.


2017-Oct-02 UT 18:45-19:50 Ill=90% Earthshine observed by Saheki_T on 1950-8-25

     In 1950 Aug 25 at UT 10:55 T.Saheki (Osaka, Japan) observed a 
     stationary yellow-white flash on the Moon of duration 0.2 sec 
     and mag 6.5. Cameron suggests that this was a meteor. The 
     Cameron 1978 catalog ID=536 and weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2017-Oct-02 UT 18:48-20:39 Ill=90% 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.

     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.


2017-Oct-02 UT 21:13-22:33 Ill=90% Aristarchus observed by Brook_C on 2006-6-8

     On 2006 Jun 08 at UT 20:30-20:45 C.Brook (Plymouth, UK, 60mm refractor 
     x75) found that Aristarchus was "shining exceptionally bright during 
     daylight on a gibous moon". The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2017-Oct-02 UT 21:37-23:28 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.


2017-Oct-02 UT 22:08-00:05 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.


2017-Oct-02 UT 22:11-23:32 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.


2017-Oct-02 UT 22:14-00:11 Ill=90% Aristarchus observed by Wildey on 1962-12-9

     In 1962 Dec 09 at UT 07:42 Wildey and Pohn (Mt Wilson, CA, USA, 60" 
     reflector) observed that Aristarchus was 0.80 magnitudes (x2) fainter 
     than average for this age (photometric measurement) Vmag=3.80, average=
     3.0. The Cameron 1978 catalog weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2017-Oct-02 UT 22:21-23:55 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.


2017-Oct-02 UT 22:27-00:24 Ill=90% Langrenus observed by Moore_P on 1992-2-16

     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 
     bright and misty - though he did not think it to be a TLP but 
     wanted it to be recorded, just in case. The Cameron 2006 catalog 
     ID=440 and the weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2017-Oct-02 UT 22:37-00:28 Ill=91% Herodotus observed by Bartlett on 1950-7-27

2017-Oct-02 UT 23:16-00:37 Ill=91% 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.


2017-Oct-02 UT 23:53-00:37 Ill=91% Torricelli_B observed by North_G on 2002-10-18

     Torricelli B 2002 Oct 18 UTC 20:56-21:59 Observer: G.North (UK, 8" 
     reflector, x134, Seeing Antoniadi IV, Transparency good) - thought that 
     Torricelli B was perhaps a little brighter than expected, especially 
     when compared to Moltke and Censorinus based upon past recollection of 
     relative brightnesses at this colongitude). Slight bluish tint seen as 
     well. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     On 1982 Aug 02 at UT 22:59-23:10 M.Price (Frimley, Surrey, UK, 
     seeing=II-III) found that the north point of this mountain appeared 
     poorly defined and merged into the surroundings - however suspected 
     that this might be normal for this colongitude? The Cameron 2006

     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

     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.


2017-Oct-04 UT 22:37-00:02 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.


2017-Oct-04 UT 22:44-00:18 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.


2017-Oct-04 UT 22:59-00:20 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.


2017-Oct-05 UT 00:04-01:34 Ill=99% Plato observed by Kelsey on 1966-8-1

     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

     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".

     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

2017-Oct-07 UT 22:04-23:46 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:

2017-Oct-08 UT 22:22-23:59 Ill=87% Theophilus observed by Mobberley_M on 1981-10-16

     On 1981 Oct 26 UT 20:44-21:14 M. Mobberley (Bury St Edmunds, UK, 
     14" Cassegrain, seeing III) noticed an ~100deg wide fan on the 
     floor of Theophius, radiating on the central peak upto the 
     surrounding base of the wall next to Cyrillus crater. This fan 
     had a hint of yellow/red. The observer did not consider this to 
     be abnormal - there was certainly no loss of focus here as far 
     as the observer was concerned, and no mention is made of this 
     effect in later observations that night. Plenty of spurious

2017-Oct-12 UT 00:02-00:42 Ill=55% 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.

     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

     In 1949 May 31 UT02:37 LT Johnson observed a flash near the W 
     limb of the Moon at the same latitude as Riccioli. No colour 
     seen, the magnitude was 9-10, and duration < 0.5 sec.  If there 
     was any motion then it must have been < 24 km. He wasn't looking 
     at it when it happened, so the motion aspect is uncertain. 
     Indeed he was not absolutely certain if it was on the limb, or 
     just inside or outside? The BAA/ALPO weight=1.

     Torricelli B 2002 Oct 14 UT 02:58-03:43 Observed by Gray (Winnemucca, 
     NV, USA, 152mm refractor x114, x305, seeing Antoniadi III, transparency 
     good) "I was out this morning (2:58-3:43 UT, October 14, 2002) 
     observing Torricelli B. At 3:17 UT the west sunlit wall of the crater 
     brightened from an intensity (Elger Scale) of 5.0 to 9.0. In actual 
     terms it went from slightly less bright than the walls of Picard to as 
     bright as the sunlit west wall of Dionysius. This was observed at 114x 
     in white light, where all three craters were in the field of view 
     simultaneously. This event lasted less than a minute and no comparable
     brightening in Dionysius or Picard was seen. The wall of Torricelli B 
     returned to 5.0 in brightness. I continued to observe Torricelli B in 
     white light until 3:43 UT, but the brightness remained at 5.0. Before 
     the brightening I tried blinking Torricelli with the following 
     combinations of filters: Wratten Red 25 and Blue 38A, Red 25 and Blue 
     80, and Red 25 and Schott BG38 (Blue Green). Nothing showed up more 
     prominently in any combination except the Red 25-Blue 38A combination, 
     where Torricelli B became invisible in the Blue, probably because of 
     the filter density. Both the Blue 80 and Schott BG 38 seemed closer in
     density to the Red 25 than the Blue 38A is. I could not see any details 
     inside Torricelli B during this session, including the bright spot on 
     the NE rim." The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     Edmund Optics filters (rose No. 47 and blue No. 80), 
     transparency poor due to thick haze. seeing was excellent) 
     observed that that the rays that crossed Mare Cisrium from
     Proclus were brighter in red light than in blue. A similar

2017-Oct-28 UT 18:08-20:04 Ill=58% Alphonsus observed by Blair_G on 1980-10-17

     On 1980 Oct 17 at UT18:40-19:10 G. Blair (Weir, Renfrewshire, 
     Scotland, UK, 22cm reflector, seeing II, transparency excellent, 
     no spurious colour) noticed at 18:40UT that the bright central 
     peak of Alphonsus was elongated. At 18:41UT, at higher power, 
     the central peak separated from a bright point of light, 
     intensity about that of a 6th magnitude star. at 18:43UT a 
     filter check was made of the suspect point and surrounding 
     regions - slightly nrighter in red. At 18:50UT intensity of 
     bright point reduced to equivalent of 4th magnitude star. Noted 
     that Earthshine was the brightest that he had ever seen it. At 
     19:03 UT losing the Moon behind a chimney. UT 19:10 brief 
     appearance, bright point still seen at 4th magnitude. 19:27UT 
     the Moon disappears again. 20:15UT reappearance of the Moon and 
     Alphonsus appeared normal. The ALPO/BAA weight=2. This is a BAA 
     Lunar section observation.


2017-Oct-28 UT 18:31-20:26 Ill=58% Alphonsus observed by Knott_J on 1993-3-31

     On 1993 Mar 31 at UT19:35-21:15 J. Knott (England, UK, 8.5" reflector, 
     x180 and x216, seeing=II and Transparency=good) the central peak of 
     Alphonsus appeared to be bright but the observer was not confident 
     enough to initiate a TLP alert. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=458b and 
     weights=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=0.


2017-Oct-28 UT 20:19-21:29 Ill=58% Plato observed by Moore_P on 1952-4-3

     Plato 1952 Apr 03 UT 20:45-21:30 Observed by Wilkins and Moore 
     (Meudon, France, 33" x460) whilst checking up on a 1923 28" 
     refractor sketch by W.H. Stevenson's, thry failed to detect a 
     prominent floor craterlet (featured in the 1923 sketch) just 
     inside the W wall. They suspected an obscuration. 
     Interestingly the whole floor was was reported to be lacking 
     in detail many hours later as observed by Cragg in the USA.

2017-Oct-28 UT 21:09-21:49 Ill=59% Torricelli_B observed by North_G on 1989-6-12

     On 1989 Jun 12 at UT 21:18-22:25 G. North (Herstmonceaux, UK, 
     Coude, seeing=V) noted at 21:18UT that Torricelli B was 
     "barely visible"- possibly this was seeing related. M. Cook 
     (Frimley, UK, 8" reflector, seeing=IV) found Toricelli B to be 
     ëxtremely dull - impossible to judge shadows on floor in 
     contrast to Cens." Holmes (Rockdale, England, UK, 8" 
     reflector, seeing=II-III) at UT21:30 also found Toricelli B 
     difficult to find at magnifications less than 200x. Cameron 
     comments that "Dulling is common on it at high Sun but 
     illumination doesn't seem to be the cause or related". The

     On 1990 Apr 05 at UT 00:43-01:46 D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 3" 
     refractor, x90) observed that Bullialdus (the crater was in shadow) was 
     pink in colour on the edge of its wall. The effect lasted from 01:15-
     01:44UT and he could discern the terrace on the western wall.

2017-Oct-29 UT 18:06-20:03 Ill=68% Plato observed by Brook_C on 2009-4-4

     On 2009 Apr 04 at UT 20:30-20:45 C. Brook (Plymouth, UK) observed a 
     slight pinkish mottling on the floor of Plato. The effect was no longer 
     visible after 20:45UT. A telephone alert was put out to M. Cook and G. 
     North. The former saw no colour, but this was after the event finished. 
     The latter observer reported cloudy conditions. A.Cook was probably 
     observing at the same time as C. Brook, via a couple of remotely 
     controlled telescopes in Aberystwyth. The results (time lapse imagery 
     through narrow band filters) will be examined at a later date.


2017-Oct-29 UT 18:33-20:26 Ill=68% Plato observed by Burton_M on 1972-3-24

     Plato 1972 Mar 24/25 UT 20:38-00:00 Observed by M.Burton (UK, 
     13.5" reflector, seeing IV-V, Transparency Fair, x180) UT20:38-
     20:45 floor was darker in a red filter than in a blue. UT20:47-
     20:56 JS Burgess (seeing 2/5, x200, with and without filters) 
     found everything normal (with and without filters). UT20:00-
     20:07 and 21:30-21:35 A.J. Beddoes found everything normal (with 
     and without filters). However at 23:10 L.Fitton suspected that 
     the E (IAU?) floor of Plato had a red-brown cast, but could not 
     be quite sure. UT23:54-00:00 M.Burton, detected the floor was 
     darker in red than in blue light. Burton did not detect any 
     colour without the use of filters on either of the two occasions 
     that he detecetd a blink. In view of the fact that two observers 
     did not detect anything, albeit not concurrently with the TLP 
     reports, this TLP is being given an ALPO/BAA weight of 1.


2017-Oct-29 UT 18:44-20:41 Ill=68% Eudoxus observed by Unknown_Observer on 1882-2-27

     On 1882 Feb 27 at UT 18:30-19:30 an unknown observer reported an 
     unusual shadow in Eudoxus. Apparently the shadow was seen to be normal 
     on 1882 Feb 25 at UT 20:30-20:45. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=228 and 
     weight=3. Reference: Sirius Vol 15, 167, 1882. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     Jamaica, 6.5" reflector) "By this date crater was clear  & at an albedo 
     ~5?. Drawings compare Jan. 16 & Aug.9, 1913." NASA catalog weight=3 
     (average). NASA catalog ID #344.


2017-Oct-29 UT 19:16-21:13 Ill=68% Plato observed by Cook_MC on 2009-4-4

     On 2009 Apr 04 at UT 21:40 M.C Cook (Mundesley, UK) after receiving a 
     telephone alert call, examined Plato crater. Although she did not 
     report C. Brook's slight mottled pink on the floor of Plato, she did 
     report through that the floor patches looked darker than normal, 
     especially in blue light and in red they were not visible at all. In 
     white light they were darker than normal. A.C. Cook was probably 
     observing at the same time via a couple of remotely controlled 
     telescopes in Aberystwyth. The results (time lapse imagery 
     through narrow band filters) will be examined at a later date.
     Note that this observation was made after C. Brook said that he could
     no longer see his TLP. Therefore this constitutes a different TLP
     as there had been a gap of 1 hour since the last TLP report.


2017-Oct-29 UT 20:17-22:00 Ill=68% Pytheas observed by Robotham on 1982-8-29

     On 1982 Aug 29 at UT 02:13-02:30 Robotham (Springfield, ON, Canada, x97 
     and x160) found that the west rim of Pytheas crater was very bright, 
     especially at lower magnifications, being one of the brightest spots on 
     the Moon. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=182 and weight=3. ALPO/BAA 
     weight=2.

     On 1980 Oct 19 at UT0054 Hobdell (St. Petersburg, FL, USA, 2.4" 
     refractor) observed that Cape LaPlace cast a very long (~66km) shadow. 
     This suggested a height of ~6.6km). The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=116 and 
     the weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2017-Oct-30 UT 16:20-17:54 Ill=76% Mons_Piton observed by Louderback_D on 1983-8-19

     On 1983 Aug 19 at UT 07:15-07:30 D. Louderback (South Bend, WA, USA, 
     3" refractor, x150) found that the direct sunlit side of Mons Piton 
     mountain (E) was brighter than (his designated) points C and D and this 
     happened at the same time as some "blurring"at 07:15UT. The darker 
     side, between C, A and B were not so dark through a red filter as 
     through a blue filter (this was the opposite of what had been seen 
     before at a high sun angle). Louderback suspects that there had been a 
     colour change since he last observed. He also noted that in red light 
     the whole lunar disk appeared fuzzy and out of focus. Louderback noted 
     a 1 sec brightness on the east slope and the whole mountain sharp in 
     blue light. The Moon's altitude was low though. Brightness measurements 
     were 4 in blue light and >= 4.6 in red light and "so illdefined almost 
     blended into plain". Cameon commnets that a telescope colour/focussing 
     issue may have been at work here! The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=226 and 
     weight=4. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2017-Oct-30 UT 16:20-17:29 Ill=76% Campanus observed by Bush_S on 2014-1-11

     Campanus 2014 Jan 11 UT 22:00-22:30 S.Bush (UK, 6" SCT, x180, 
     seeing average) made a sketch of the Campanus and Mercator 
     craters. He found that the central peak of Campanus difficult 
     to resolve and the floors of both craters were devoid of 
     detail. Mercator was the lighter shade of the two floors. 
     Earlier at 19:47 UT M.Brown (Huntingdon, UK) imaged this 
     region and using Registax resolved details on the floors of 
     both craters, though Mercator clearly was slightly lighter in 
     floor shade and had less detail on its floor than Campanus. 
     The most likely explanation was that it was just seeing 
     effects blocking the visibility of detail - this of course is 
     less of a problem for a Registax usid on the CCD image. 
     However just to be sure this observation is being given an 
     ALPO/BAA TLP weight of 1, to encourage visual observers to 
     attempt this observation under similar illumination and 
     seeing.

2017-Oct-31 UT 16:20-17:24 Ill=85% Aristarchus observed by no on 1969-5-28

     On 1969 May 28 at UT 02:18 Delano (Taunton? MA, USA, 12.5" 
     reflector, x300, seeing=fair and transparency=good) through the 
     red filter at 02:18UT saw a bright area on the west wall of 
     Aristarchus crater become 2x brighter than normal then faded 
     back to normal in < 1 min duration. The spot was 8km centred on 
     sigma=0.682 and eta=0.397. No events seen at Kepler (Apollo 10 
     watch). The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1149 and weight=4. ALPO/BAA 
     weight=3.


2017-Oct-31 UT 16:20-17:39 Ill=85% Aristarchus observed by no on 1969-5-28

     On 1969 May 28 at UT 02:18 Delano (Taunton? MA, USA, 12.5" 
     reflector, x300) suspected a short duration flare up on the W 
     wall of Aristarchus at 0.682 and 0.397, but it may have been due 
     to poor seeing. No events seen at Kepler (Apollo 10 watch). The 
     Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1149 and weight=4. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2017-Oct-31 UT 16:20-17:17 Ill=85% Aristarchus observed by Fitton on 1975-2-22

     On 1975 Feb 22 at 19:00-22:50 Fitton (Lancashire, UK, 8" reflector, 
     seeing=II-III-I) saw Aristarchus (at 19:00UT) blue, with no obscuration 
     visible in white, red or blue filters. This was not a telescopic 
     effect. "Obs. 4.5h. Says it & next 5 nites obs. were due to high 
     pressure system W. of obs.". Foley found nothing unsual in Aristarchus 
     in his observing session, which overlapped Fittons. The 1978 catalog 
     ID=1396 and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2017-Oct-31 UT 16:20-17:17 Ill=85% Prinz observed by Foley_PW on 1975-2-22

     On 1975 Feb 22 at 20:04-22:50 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK, 12" reflector, 
     seeing=good) observed Prinz to have a diffuse white obsecuration. There 
     were pulsations of 30-50sec intervals. Effect ceased at 22:50UT and 
     indeed was fading earlier from 22:35UT. Photgraphs were taken but 
     showed nothing unusual and no colour. Aristarchus was also negative.
     The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1396 and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     On 1978 Jan 20 at UT19:10 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK, 12" reflector) observed 
     a red spot at the southern edge of Gassendi C. P. Moore (Slesey, UK, 
     15" reflector, S=II-III) reported nothing unusual 17:00-17:50. Turner 
     and others reported negative at 22:01. Pedler (UK, 12.5" reflector, 
     S=III-IV) though detected a yellow-orange tint on the east floor of 
     Gassendi A but the effect faded during poor seeing moments. Cameron 
     2005 catalog ID=24 and weight=5. ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2017-Oct-31 UT 16:28-17:41 Ill=85% Bullialdus observed by Cook_AC on 1980-12-18

     40-250x, S=IV and transparency good) found the north west wall to be 
     brighter in red than in blue light, however the effect faded during 
     21:29-21:41UT and was gone by 22:40UT. There was however spurious 
     colour on the north west wall. M. Cook (Frimley, UK) found the central 
     peak to be both bright and diffuse, and brighter in red than in blue 
     light during 20:52-20:57UT, however at "22:53-23:58 c.p. very bright & 
     previous area decreased in size. No detail in white or red, just 
     visible in blue. Sketch (J. Cook) Orange out on NW rim & on NW side of 
     c.p. Similar effects seen on  other craters. (madej) c.p. & W. rim wall 
     very sharp. c.p. disappears in yellow but still seen in purple. 
     (pedler) c.p. > red than blue but no obstruction. W wall interior 
     dusky, darker in blue." A.C. Cook's photo depicts the central peak as 
     very bright. Cameron 2006 catalog TLP ID=120 and weight=5. ALPO/BAA

2017-Oct-31 UT 21:23-23:21 Ill=86% Vallis_Schroteri observed by Weier_D on 1992-3-16

     On 1992 Mar 16 at UT 00:39-01:14 D. Weier (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 11" 
     reflector) at 00:39UT noted some soft, diffused, faint ïllumination 
     within the shadow projected over the Cobra Head area, though it had a 
     sharp appearance to the edge of the shadow. D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, 
     USA, 11" reflector) was taking photographs from UT 00:51 and making 
     drawings and visual descriptions. The first 3 photographs in the 
     sequence have the crater as normal. Four other photographs reveal an 
     abnormality. Seeing conditions were excellent and a great deal of 
     surface detail was seen inside Aristarchus crater - however the 
     apeparance of the Cobra's Head was "washed out" and again shadows near 
     to this were illuminated. The NASA catalog ID=442 and the weight=5. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     in the central peak of Alphonsus, however it had returned to normal by 
     Aug 31 UT 00:29-00:50UT when A.C. Cook (Alexandria, VA, USA, 8" 
     reflector) examined the area, though there were some slight brightness 
     variations that were attributed to seeing conditions. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=2.

2017-Oct-31 UT 23:49-23:51 Ill=86% Cavendish observed by Houghton on 1956-1-24

     Cavendish 1956 Jan 24 UTC 20:34-20:45 Observed by Houghton and Warner 
     (England) "Variable flashes seen from W. inner(?) wall of crater, then 
     a little inside the terminator. Flashes began with a bright glare at 
     20:34, were very bright for ~3 min, then faded. Flash rate 
     approximately every 1.5 sec. Other point like peaks did not flash. Also 
     indications were seen of reflections of flashes from E. (inner?) wall 
     and the crater's floor was faintly lit by a glare. Ref: Strolling 
     Astronomer p27, Vol 45, 2003. 17cm reflector x230. Seeing good-
     excellent. NASA catalog assigns this observation a weight of 4 (good).
