2018-Nov-01 UT 01:30-01:32 Ill=45% Rupes_Recta observed by daSilva on 1971-6-16

     On 1971 Jun 16 at UT 07:08-07:09 Raimundo Nonato da Silva 
     (Parnaiba, PI, Brazil, 9.5" reflector, x90, seeing=good) 
     observed during a lunar eclipse that the Straight Wall 
     surroundings were darker than an observation from two days 
     earlier. At 07:09UT tonality became clearer. As dawn was in 
     progress and atmospheric turbulence, not sure if it was a TLP? 
     Other features were normal. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1297 and 
     weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Nov-01 UT 03:07-04:51 Ill=45% Tycho observed by Sandel_J on 1996-2-12

     On 1996 Feb 12 at UT 07:30-08:27 J.Sandel (Caycee, SC, USA) 
     noted a contrast effect inside Tycho at sunset. At 07:30UT there 
     was a slight, but definite illumination of small areas of the 
     crater floor west of the central; peak. Also seen by T. Ferrel 
     (Lawrenceville, GA, USA, SCT C8). This was oval in shape and 
     gray in colour - Ferrel noted some diffuseness. It brightened 
     over 30 minutes. At 08:11UT a definite brightness fade noted in 
     Tycho's central peak. The crater floor had increased 
     illumination of entire crater floor. ALPO/BAA weight=3.

2018-Nov-05 UT 05:05-05:37 Ill=7% Plato observed by Short_J on 1751-4-22

     James Short, Dr Harris and Mr Stephens saw initially a streak of 
     light on the shadowed floor of Plato. They were not expecting to see
     any light to reach the floor. Shortly afterwards they saw a second
     streak of light parallel to the first and this shortly divided
     into two. Gaps in the mountains were found for both streaks,
     but they were unable to understand why one of the streaks divided
     into two. Cameron's 1978 assigns this TLP an ID of 20 and a weight
     of 5. The ALPO/BAA catalog assigns a weight of 1.

     flare and some brighenings in the crater Gassendi. With the naked eye 
     he saw a glowing spot on the Earthshine side of the Moon. When he 
     turned his telescope onto this he found out that this was Gassendi 
     crater. By comparison, Aristarchus was just a small point. Herzog

     orange outburst from the ctater. When E. Watkins had a look, it just 
     resembled a misty white area i.e. normal. Eyepieces were changed but it 
     stayed misty white. Hooke was an inexperienced TLP observer at the 
     time. Watkins did however notice some variation in brightness but put 
     this down to atmospheric conditions. This is a BAA observation.

     On 1983 Sep 11 at UT 23:52 K.P. Marshall (Columbia, 12" 
     reflector, x268, seeing II), whilst sketching the crater Janssen 
     noticed a tenuous red patch on the southern junction of the

     on nearby areas. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Nov-12 UT 18:56-20:04 Ill=24% Aristarchus observed by Grego_P on 2010-4-18

     On 2010Apr18 at UT 20:45-21:00 P. Grego (St Dennis, UK, 17" 
     reflector - first practice run) observed that Aristarchus in 
     Earthishine was the brightest that he had seen it before. The 
     effect had faded to normal in the next 15 minutes though. "The 
     bright spot was initially thought to be part of the wall of 
     Aristarchus, but on closer examination the spot was probably the
     crater’s central peak. At around this time I estimated the 
     brightness of the peak to be around magnitude 8, but this is a 
     poor estimate as no suitable comparison stars in the immediate 
     vicinity of the field of view were to be seen. Aristarchus’ 
     outline was visible, as was a clearly defined sweep of 
     brightness to its west (presumably the high albedo markings 
     southeast of Herodotus) and another illuminated area to the 
     north of Aristarchus (presumably the Vaisala area), and a small 
     illuminated patch on the eastern flanks of Aristarchus. No other 
     areas of the Moon in earthshine appeared to be as bright as 
     these markings, and there were certainly no other clearly-
     defined spots as brilliant as the one that lay in Aristarchus. A 
     watch was kept until 22:00 UT, when the Moon went out of view 
     behind a tree. During this period it appeared that the spot was 
     becoming less bright and less clearly-defined, although the 
     other albedo markings in its vicinity remained visible; this may 
     have been a consequence of the Moon’s diminishing altitude.

     Proclus NW ray 2003 Sep 02 UTC 02:20-03:35 Observed by Haas (Las 
     Cruces, NM, USA) "Everyone knows the bright ray running northwest from 
     Proclus. In this view from 2:20 to 2:36, UT on September 2 I remarked a 
     thin, pink southwest border to the ray. One thinks of chromatic 
     aberration, and the position supports this interpretation; but other 
     bright lunar features showed no such effect. The pink border lay 1 to 
     2.5 diameters away from Proclus (S=2, T=3.5). At 2:55, UT (S=1-2, S=
     3.5) the border was gone; neither its appearance nor disappearance was 
     observed. At 03:25 UT there is no sign of the pink border (S=2, T=3), 
     moreover the Moon was lower, so atmospheric dispersion must be greater 
     by now? 12.5" Newtonian x321 at 02:20-02:36, x202 at other times.?" 
     Note that experiments to simulate spurious colour using Adobe Photoshop 
     were able to recreate colour in the correct place on the NW ray - 
     however there should have been colour reported on the SW ray too and 
     there was no mention of this, therefore the observational report is 
     intriguing. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Nov-13 UT 19:54-20:54 Ill=33% Aristarchus observed by Whelan on 1969-7-20

     On 1967 Jul 20 at UT 07:00 Whelan, (Wellington, New Zealnd) saw a

     less pronounced. This was during the apolo 11 watch. The Cameron 1978 
     catalog ID=1172 and the weight=2. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Nov-13 UT 20:21-20:54 Ill=33% Earthshine observed by Weith_Knudson on 1974-2-27

     On 1974 Feb Weith-Knudson (Copenhagen, Denmark, 12" refrlector, x72)
     observed a magnitude 7.7 flash (comparison between SAO093043=mag 7,8 
     and SAO093052 mag=7.5 that happened to lie in the field of view at the 
     time) in Earthshine. The observer speculates whether this was a lunar 
     meteorite impact or a reflection from an artificial satellite (or 
     indeed as Cameron suggests from an Earth meteor?). The cameron 1978 
     catalog ID=1388 and weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Nov-13 UT 20:51-20:54 Ill=33% Daniell observed by Price_M on 1979-12-24

     M. Price of Camberley, UK noticed that an area in relation
     to the central area of the floor could not be resolved. Averted
     vision was used, but this did not help to resolve detail. The crater
     was close to the terminator and was in general sharply in focus
     apart from the suspect area. No spurious colour seen. Sketch
     supplied.P. Foley wonders if the effect was due to the resolution
     limit of Price's scope? Cameron 2006 extension catalog ID=78

     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

     On 1988 Jul 22 at UT 02:15-04:00 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK, 11" 
     reflector) made a sketch of a dark area of the (East) floor of 
     Proclus that revealed a large anomalous dark region - there 
     should be no shade here when the sun is at an altitude of above 
     50 deg!. BAA lunar section archives reveal similar dark shadings 
     - however on this night it was a different shaped dark area. The 
     appearance was confirmed by several observers. Foley reported 
     that the region affected stretched from Proclus to Theophilus. 
     The TLP was seen in the USA too by D, Darling as early as 
     01:31UT and by others on his TLP network - brightness 
     measurements of the "c.p." were 3.5 and the remainder of the 
     floor was 5.5. However the observers did not all agree on the 
     same position for this dark area. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=

2018-Nov-16 UT 17:23-18:18 Ill=61% 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

     (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.

     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

     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.

2018-Nov-17 UT 17:23-18:17 Ill=70% 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.


2018-Nov-17 UT 17:30-19:27 Ill=70% 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.

     (FL, USA, 11"  reflector, x224 and x311, transparency 4-3 
     and seeing 5-6/10) noted a tiny point on the south east
     rim of Plato, adjacent to the east wall shadow. It was
     first seen at x311 without filters, then in both Wratten
     25 (red) and Wratten 38A (blue) - it was faintest in the
     latter. The spot was probably a high point on the south east
     rim. By 01:28UT the spot was no longer visible in the blue
     filter, but could still be seen well in red and white light.
     No change was seen during rechecks at 01:44 or 02:30. The
     observer considers that this was not a TLP as it was on the
     limits of detectability and anyway observing conditions were
     poor. The ALPO/BAA weight=1. 


2018-Nov-17 UT 22:06-00:01 Ill=71% Plato observed by Robinson_JH on 1974-3-3

     On 1974 Mar 3 at UT 19:06-20:20 J-H Robinson (Teighmouth, Devon, 
     UK, 10" refractor, x200, seeing=poor) got a Moon Blink reaction 
     on the South east wall of Plato, adjacent to the rim shadow and 
     alerted the BAA TLP network. Ford reported a negtive result at 
     19:35UT, although Robinson was still getting a blink reaction at 
     19:40UT, albeit fainter, red at times. Findlay at 19:43-19:52 
     and 20:00-20:05 saw nothing unusual. Robinson at 19:56UT no 
     longer saw a blink, but it returned at 20:05UT. Light in bothred 
     and blue filters. Not steady, but coming and going and gone at 
     20:09UT. Moore at 19:59-21:00, kennedy at 20:12-20:30, Taylor at 
     20:48-21:03 and Fitton at 20:05UT all got negative results. The 
     latter time coincides with Robinson's second blink reaction.

     the previously observed gray area was 1/3 of July 22 and V 
     shaped and fanned out across the floor. Could see hint of knot 
     seen before. Craters named in 7/23/88 (#319) were all normal 
     this time too". Is it possible that this report refers to the 
     crater "Gray" rather than "Proclus" as the column field suggests 
     in the Cameron catalog? The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=333 and 
     weight=5. The ALPO/BAA catalog weight=2.

     Dungan (Flagstaff, AZ, USA, 24" refractor, and 69" reflector) 
     observed pink on the outer SW rim and a red spot towards the S of 
     this. A red spot was seen on the eastern side of Vallis Schroteri
     but only by Barr and Dungan. Other features checked for 
     atmospheric spectral dispersion and chromatic aberation - but the 
     colours in Aristarchus were not due to these. Smaller 12" scope 
     checked but no effects seen - presumably due to resolution and 
     image contrast issues? Pink on the SW rim may have been seen in a 
     69" scope by Boyce and Ford. ALPO/BAA weight=4.

     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

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

     detected "purple"in the vicinity of Aristarchus crater and this was 
     stongest on the north and north west external rims, however there was 
     no "violet glare"from inside the crater. However the region of the 
     central peak was very bright - though he could not detect the central 
     peak. The brightness of the TLP was 4.5 and it should normally be 3 
     (nimbus area). Near the "big plain"it was 7. The chromatic aberation 
     seen on the crater. There was also violet on the northen wall of 
     Herodotus crater and the Cobra Head. Ït appeared dark blue in the blue

     repeat illumination observation for a W.E. Fox TLp observation 
     from 1938 Feb 14. The observer was wondering whether they were 
     in some way biased after reading the original report desription 
     - so uncertain over this being a TLP. In view of uncertainty 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     Aristarchus 1976 Jan 15 UT 19:30-20:50 Observed by P.W. Foley 
     (Kent, UK, 12" reflector) - Aristarchus was abnormally bright 
     (Cameron suspects that this is a confirmation an explosion 
     effect seen earlier by Greenland: "On 1976 Jan 15 at 19:45Ut 
     Greenland (Crawley, UK, 7x50 binooculars) thought that they 
     saw an "explosion" on the Moon (in the general region of 
     Aristarchus) for a fraction of a second, followed by a bright 
     spot in the same position (not an astronomer). After 
     discussions with others, decided it was a moment of transition 
     to greater intensity (better seeing?). Moore thinks it was 
     atmospheric but says it should be on record. Cmeron's 1978

     crater from the west and then bisecting the eastern rim. All 
     detail inside is completely invisble. Some (but not all) of the 
     other images showed a more blurred view of this feature. It's 
     possible that this was a seeing ripple effect, or just the 
     natural appearance of shadings on the Moon at this time, however 
     for now this will be given an ALPO/BAA weight of 1.

2018-Nov-25 UT 00:59-02:42 Ill=96% Aristarchus observed by Bartlett on 1950-7-2

     In 1950 Jul 02 UT07:22 Bartlett (Baltimore, MD, USA, 3.5" 
     reflector) saw no dark bands on the inside of Aristarchus, 
     despite detail being seen elsewhere. He would normally have 
     expected to have seen bands at this colongitude, based upon past 
     observations. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Nov-25 UT 01:51-03:44 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.

     region granulated, 6 deg bright with very faint trace of pale yellow 
     color; rest of crater 8 deg bright." NASA catalog weight=4 (good), NASA 
     catalog ID #859.


2018-Nov-25 UT 01:55-03:45 Ill=96% Aristarchus observed by Brook_C on 2002-9-23

     On 2002 Sep 23 at UT22:45-23:56 C. Brook (Plymouth, UK) noticed that 
     the bands inside Aristarchus varied (UT22:45-22:56) in definition 
     whilst the rim of Herodotus and the rays of Kepler and Copernicus 
     remained sharp. These bouts of variation were 1-2min in duration. At 
     23:56UT when he checked again the periodic blurrings of the bands were 
     still present. The observer suspected atmospheric effects. M.Cook 
     (Frimley, UK) observed 22:00-22:30 and could see only 2 bands on the 
     west wall - but this may have been because of poor transparancy. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     UK, 12" reflector, seeing excellent, no turbulence, slight frost and 
     mist) had a suspicion of blue on the entire north wall of Aristarchus 
     crater - not seen visually but detected with a Moon Blink device. 
     Crater extremely bright and unable to penetrate it visually. 
     Surrounding areas charp. No red/orange on south wall. All other areas

     On 1980 Oct 30 at UT03:19-03:41 P. Madej (Huddersfield, UK, 158mm f/4 
     reflector, seeing I-II, and transparency very good. Wratten 15 (yellow) 
     and Wratten 35 (purple) used. No spurious colour seen). At 03:19UT, the 
     observer noted that Mons Spitzbergen looked sharper at x52. At x72 
     bright flashes of a bright lunar gray to a light orange colour seen. 
     BAA Lunar Section TLP team alerted. At 03:32UT a yellow filter used and 
     the flashes were better seen, one flash approximately 20-30 sec apart. 
     At 03:31UT Madej used a purple filter and could not see Mons 
     Spitzbergen but did see the flashes (45-60 sec apart). cameron 2006

     towards the end of the observing period, transparency 100% 
     clear, 22cm Newtonian reflector, x144, x185). The floor seemed 
     quite devoid of detail, apart from a vague mottling seen during 
     the briefest moments of best seeing conditions. At the start of 
     the observing period he could just glimpse the central craterlet 
     at x185, but could not be sure. ALPO/BAA weight=1.
