     On 1884 Sep 16 at UT 09:30-10:00 Heywood (Westville, Ohio, 2" 
     refractor) saw an unusually bright glow covering dark part, nearly 
     uniform. Thought it was electric because it was too bright for 
     Earthshine. It obscured features. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID= and

2019-Feb-07 UT 23:42-23:59 Ill=8% S_Pole observed by Livesey_R on 1997-4-10

     South Pole 1997 Apr 10 UTC 20:45 Observed by Livesey (Scotland, 65x33, 
     Seeing Antioniadi II, Transparency : Thick Haze Alto Stratus, windy) 
     "Two bright spots seen - one on southern tip of crescent and 2nd way 
     over on the dark side of the S. limb. Earthshine seen, but no 
     features". Probably these are just peaks making it into sunlight -
     though one of them was of considerable distance from the tip of
     the cresecent (was this the peak of eternal light?). So therefore 
     the ALPO/BAA weight=1 i.e. it is worth checking out - however we 
     may not be able to tell for sure until the libration matches 
     up too.

     On 1972 Dec 10 at UT21:11 Schmitt, whilst orbiting the Moon on Apollo 
     17 saw a flash in Grimaldi. When questioned by Cameron upon return to 
     Earth, he said that he was dark adapted at the time and was unable to 
     say whether it was a cosmic ray or an impact flash. Cameron says that 
     there have been many similar reports in the past from Earth-based 
     observers e.g. TLP report No. 1167). The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1352

2019-Feb-10 UT 00:11-01:44 Ill=22% Aristarchus observed by Moore_P on 1984-1-8

     On 1984 Jan 08 at UT16:30-18:40 P. Moore (Selsey, UK, seeing=III) could 
     not see Aristarchus in Earthsine, despite, Tycho and the mare regions 
     being plainly visible. Foley (Kent, UK) found Aristarchus to be a "soft 
     blue patch" and North (seeing IV-V) found the crater to be one of the 
     brightest features on the Moon. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=237 and the

2019-Feb-10 UT 01:09-01:44 Ill=22% 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.

     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,

     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.

     point flash was also seen at 18:18, this time thru a blue filter. The 
     2nd flash was also seen on the NW rim of the crater E. The observer 
     does not think this was a TLP as the seeing was III, but the flash was 
     so bright as to be startling. Other peaks within the Alps were bright 
     but were much less so in red and ble filters, where the rim of the

2019-Feb-12 UT 23:27-01:15 Ill=50% Chacornac observed by Khachatryan_S on 2009-8-28

     On 2009 Aug 28 at UTC 17:00:15-17:00:42 S. Khachatryan (Yerevan, 
     Armenia, 127mm Maksutov-Cassegrain, x171, seeing 9 (1=worst and 10-
     best), Transparency 5-6 on a scale of 1 to 6) observed in the Chacornac 
     area a series of fiery sparks (dot like with tiny rays), slightly 
     elongated with the multitudinal rays orientated towards the south west 
     direction. The colour was mostly red, with some yellow. The final flash 
     was the most clear. The TLP was tiny in area, but "was distinctly 
     bright against any other object on the Moon". The positional 
     uncertainty of the location of the spark effect was approximately +/-
     150 km, based upon an examination of an atlas afterwards. Just prior to 
     the spark effect, something dark, small and fuzzy (only just discrnable 
     to the eye, through the eyepiece) was seen to pass from the west across 
     the Moon in a slight curve, round the surface of the Moon to the east 
     (post observation estimate: seen for 3.5 sec and covered roughly 8% of 
     the lunar diameter in that time). The area of the dark object was 
     comparable in size to (or slightly less than?) craters such as 
     Autolycus F (diameter 3km) or le Monnier E (diameter 4km) i.e. on the 
     limits of vision of the scope used. The location of the flash was not 
     exactly at the same location as the dark object passed across, but gave 
     the impression of starting from it? A back of the envelope calculation 
     of the lunar diameter covered in the time quoted gives an approximate 
     speed (at the lunar distance) of 80km/s or on the very high end of 
     typical meteor streams that pass by. At closer distances, and 
     recalculated velocities, it is unlikely to be a satellite in low Earth 
     orbit (20m/sec at 100km distance), but could perhaps be a bird or 
     insect at a few km range? So was this dark object something in our
     atmosphere by chance passing across the field of view close to the time 
     of the TLP flare or was at the lunar distance and related to the TLP? 
     Incidentally, no attempt was made during this observation to move the 
     scope to check that the TLP remained stationary against the Moon. The

2019-Feb-13 UT 23:08-23:39 Ill=61% Tycho observed by Albert_J on 2010-8-19

     On 2010 Aug 19 at UT 00:50-01:02 J.Albert (Lakeworth, FL, USA, 
     C11, Transparency 3, Seeing 7-8, 86F and very humid. Oberver 
     checking out repeat illumination condition appearence for Tycho 
     concerning LTP #468 in the 1978 Cameron catalog. Did not see the 
     effect from the original TLP report, but did see, immediately at 
     looking at Tycho a very faint hint of redness in a pencil thin 
     arc (< 1/4 circumference of the rim) confined to the top of the 
     rim of the well-lit north east wall. Coloured arc similar in 
     thickness to Rupes Recta, but not as sharply defined. The outer 
     (E) edge was perhaps sharper than the inner edge. The redness 
     was more on the inside of the top of the rim. The outside of the 
     rim was bright white. This effect was seen in three different 
     eyepieces, at 311x, 224x and 400x. Checked for the effect on 
     other craters nearby but could not see this effect anywhere 
     else. The colour had dissapeared by 01:02UT. The fade took about 
     1-2 minutes. Observation of Tycho continued until 01:06UT, but 
     all seemed normal. Quick checks were made again on Tycho 
     periodically until 02:50UT but the colour was not seen again.

2019-Feb-13 UT 23:12-00:54 Ill=61% Plato observed by Reese_EJ on 1949-3-9

     Plato 1949 Mar 09 UT 02:00-03:00 E.J.Reese (6" reflector x240) 
     and one hour later T.R.Hake (5" refractor x300) both unable to 
     see any detail on the floor of Plato, despite both being able to 
     see a "difficult to see" cleft near to the crater Connon. Reese 
     was able to see detail under similar illumination back in 1948 
     and 1947 and saw the floor craterlets in Plato clearly then.

     refractor, x90, seeing conditions: "at,. boiling") noted a coloured 
     area on the west wall of Copernicus that was unusual in appearance - 
     however other craters along the terminator had a similar effect. There 
     was also a "dazzling bright spot on the E. rim and he witnessed 6 
     flashes from the lighted part of Copernicus over a very short time 
     interval. Cameron comments that the colour may well have been dur to 
     chromatic aberation because a refractor was used. The Cameron 2006

2019-Feb-14 UT 01:11-03:08 Ill=62% Proclus observed by Darling_D on 1990-8-30

     On 1990 Aug 30 at UT 02:11-02:36 D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 3" 
     reflector, x90, atmosphereic conditions: boiling) found "N rim of Proc. 
     bright interior uniform gray". The Cameron 2006 catalog report is 
     slight unclear as the description for thnis 1990 Aug 30 TLP also 
     includes Copernicus and Censorinus in the list of TLP craters. So one 
     description which might refere to Copernicus, could possibly have been 
     meant for Proclus, namely: "Dazling bright spot on E rim. Rotated

2019-Feb-15 UT 03:16-03:27 Ill=73% Copernicus observed by Johnstone_GH on 1954-11-6

     Observed by G.H. Johnstone of Albuquerque, NM, USA on 1954 Nov 05 UT 
     20:00 (according to Cameron), but 02:00-04:00 according to the
     original observation and at colongitudes 34.7 to 35.7 deg. 4" 
     reflector, x150 used. The obsewrver reported that the western part 
     (about 1/3rd of the interior) was pitch black with shadow. However 
     there was a zone about as wide, or perhaps only a fourth of the total 
     width that was distinctly a lighter bluish shade, almost like twilight. 
     The shadows of the peaks on the western edge of the rim were clearly 
     seen crossing this bluish shadowed area. Then this area ended sharply, 
     and the farside was bathed in light from the rising sun. The shadows of
     the peak were sharply defined across the twilight zone, and the edge of 
     the pitch black shadow was easily defined but not as sharp as the
     darker shadows crossing the the blue twilight zone. The observer 
     checked other craters but did not see this condition in any of them - 
     they all had the abrupt division between black and white that we would
     normally expect to see. Cameron 1978 catalog ID=579 and weight=2.

2019-Feb-15 UT 03:25-05:04 Ill=73% Plato observed by Moore_P on 1981-6-12

     P. Moore at 21:10 found the southern wall (and ontothe southern floor)
     of the crater to be indistinct. Elsewhere in the crater everything was
     sharp. The effect was still seen at 21:42UT, but less strong. A check
     was made for colour with aq Moonblink device, but none was seen. There
     was still a trace of this effect at 21:44UT, although detail was now
     becoming visible. By 21:48UT vertical streaks were seen crossing
     the floor from the obscuration area and these were more visible in the 
     red filter and not in the blue. Cameron comments that undefined patches
     on the floor of Plato are not normal. By 21:55UT some craterlets on the
     floor started to become visible and the TLP for Moore ended by UT22:23.
     P.Foley was alerted by Moore and saw a "amssive dense obsecuration
     on the south wall, south floor and south outer glacis to the Mare".
     Foley noted that by 21:50UT the effect was fading and finished by 
     22:03UT. Foley reported an orange translucent haze covering half of the 
     floor, but floor craterlets could be seen on and off - however his 
     atmospheric seeing conditions were IV. At 22:00 UT Foley reported the 
     floor close to the north wall to be "milky or misty". No detail was 
     visible at 21:15UT and variability in the floor continued until 
     23:10UT. Hedly-Robinson was aleted at 21:35UT and found no difference 
     between red and blue views of the area, however he did find that the 
     south rim was indistinct although this effect had lessened by 22:00 UT 
     and was normal by 22:17UT. M. Mobberly saw a white spot on the floor at 
     21:20 UT, whereas he normally would have expected to see craterlets. 
     Mobberly was alerted at 21:40 UT and took some colour photos. He also 
     made sketches that showed variability in the floor and dark lines and 
     patches in the north west corner. However the altitude of the Moon was 
     low. Cameron mentions that two of the photos show loss of detail at the 
     south wall and beyond.and also a change in the floor markings.The north 
     wall at 21:50UT was strangely reddish (didn't think this was spurious 
     colour). The rest of the wall was sharp at 22:20UT through a yellow 
     filter. Large bright patch in the centre and rest of the floor was 
     apparently of the same shading as Mare Imbrium. The above notes are 
     based upon the Cameron 2006 catalog extension TLP ID 145 and weight=4.

     C. Brook of Plymouth UK, using a 4" refractor x216, noticed at UT 20:10
     dark patches coming and going (in terms of visibility) on the floor of 
     Plato. Occasional views of the central cratelet (seen as a white spot) 
     were glimpsed. The dark patches seen lasted about 1-2 seconds before
     fading out during each visibility cycle. Teneriff Mountains were 
     checked but no sign of seeing effects that might explain the dark floor
     patches. By 20:26UT the dark patch effect was fading and by 20:31UT 
     floor detail was visible. Observations ceased at UT 20:34. Seeing 
     conditions were II and the Moon was at a high altitude. Other observers 
     were alerted but came on-line after the effect had finished. ALPO/BAA 
     weight=2.

     reflector, x159) observed an "anomalous black bar across Aris. Nearly 
     digonal to terminator." The nearby crater Prinz had curious shadow 
     patterns, perhaps related to the rising sun projecting shadows from the 
     eastern rim and "reflected down"? "At 0224 W wall had a break in it & a 
     diffuse glow where it should not be. Manske thinks it was Earthshine 
     effect. At 0305 Weier saw Manske's bar - with diffused light and 
     flicker like an aurora - like a gas with electric charge. At 0325 saw a 
     strange glow in Aris. but may be due to atm. though thought it to be a

     to confirm activity: J.W. Napper (Didcot, UK, 30cm reflector, x287, 
     Wratten 25 and 44a, conditions clear 5+) received a telephone alert 
     call at 22:00 but the sky was cloudy until 22:30. An initial look 
     revealed nothing unusual, then at 22:54 he observed a colour blink just 
     inside the north wall, appearing bright in red and normal in blue or 
     white light. No loss of detail seen and the effect lasted only 2 
     minutes. A sketch was made. However the observer stresses that the very 
     bad seeing casts some doubt on this observation. L. Fitton observed 
     using a 8.5" reflector, with Moon blink device at x200, seeing was I-
     II. All areas negative, including Gassindi from 21:40-21:55 and again 
     22;00-22:25 and finally 22:50-23:30 negative. Mike Brown (Huntington, 
     York, UK, 30cm reflector, x220 and x350, seeing 3-4/5, and transparency 
     5/5) - observed from 22:00-23:25UT no colour seen, nor obsecuration, 
     all filters negative, despite seeing a lot of fine setail inside this 
     crater.


2019-Feb-16 UT 04:15-06:02 Ill=83% Gassendi observed by Robinson_JH on 1976-10-4

     Gassendi 1976 Oct 04 UT 20:55-20:58 Observed by Robinson (Devon, 
     England) - observer noted that the east outside wall was bright in red 
     and normal in blue. Note that the Moon was 30 deg above the horizon at 
     the time of the observation. The crater returned to normal at 20:58. 
     Also seen by Moore (Selsey, UK) and Foley (Kent, UK). At 21:25-21:50 D. 
     Sims (Dawlish, UK, 25cm reflector, x300, seeing IV and some cloud at 
     times) noticed a possible obscuration over the southern part of 
     Gassendi. He had been observing earlier at 18:40-19:30 but had not 
     detected a TLP in Gassendi then. 22:11UT Robinson notices that the spot 
     outside the east wall is again bright in red., though by 22:25 it had 
     faded  and was gone by 22:28UT. The Cameron 1978 catalog further 
     quotes: "Vivid red spots & general red color seen around rim by 2 obs. 
     At 2209h blood red small area was seen. 1 h later the most westerly 
     (IAU?) of the peaks had become hazy white all other areas were sharp. 
     (Indep. confirm.)." Cameron 1978 catalog weight=5 and catalog ID #1454. 
     The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     Gassendi 1966 May 01 UT 19:30-00:21 Observed by Sartory (UK, 
     8.5" reflector, x500, S=G), Moore, Moseley (Northern Ireland, 
     12.5" reflector x350, S=E) and by Corralitos Observatory 
     (Organ Pass, NM, USA, 24" reflector + moon blink) "Eng. 
     moonblink & obscuration, also vis. confirm (Moore & Moseley 
     alerted by Sartory. Corralitos MB did not confirm. - but they 
     may not have been observing at the ame time?)." NASA catalog

2019-Feb-16 UT 06:12-07:09 Ill=83% Promontorium_Laplace observed by Cook_JD on 1978-5-18

     On 1978 May 18 at UT20:45-21:53 J.D. Cook (Frimley, UK, 12" 
     reflector, x240) observed Promitorium Laplace to have 
     visually a brown colour - though no Moon Blink (red and blue 
     filters) effect was detected. Cameron comments that this is 
     probably a subjective effect - also others have reported 
     something similar at times. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=30 
     and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Feb-16 UT 06:52-07:27 Ill=83% Plato observed by Moore_P on 1998-7-5

     Plato 1998 Jul 05 P. Moore (Selsey, UK, 15" reflector, x200-
     x400, seeing II/III) comments that he is puzzled why the floor 
     of Plato, which is light gray in shade, looks completely blank 
     tonight. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Feb-16 UT 07:10-07:27 Ill=84% Plato observed by Graham_F on 1980-7-24

     On 1980 Jul 24 at UT02:00 F. Graham (East Pittsburgh, PA, USA, 6" 
     reflector) took some photos (albeit out of focus) that showed a bright 
     spot on the west rim. Cameron comments that this spot was sharp 
     compared to the rest of the photograph, so was probably a photographic 
     artifact. The effect was not seen in the finder scope. The Cameron 2006 
     catalog ID=103 and weight=2. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Feb-16 UT 23:16-01:05 Ill=90% Herodotus observed by Bartlett on 1949-11-3

     In 1949 Nov 03 UT 01:06 J.Bartlett (3.5" refractor, x100) noted that 
     the floor of Herodotus was very dark, the east wall was very bright, 
     and the floor contained a central bright peak. The BAA/ALPO weight=3.


2019-Feb-16 UT 23:23-00:00 Ill=90% Daniell observed by Crick on 1979-7-6

     Crick of Belgium noticed obscuration on a bright spot on
     the south east wall. This spot was quite prominent through a red 
     Wratten 25 filter. The floor was very dark. Other craters
     were checked and were normal. A sketch was supplied and the position 
     was the same as in other earlier reports. Cameron 2006 catalog 
     extension ID=60 and weight=3. ALPO/BAA weight=3. 6" reflector

2019-Feb-17 UT 03:30-04:59 Ill=91% Tycho observed by Moore_P on 1980-7-24

     On 1980 Jul 24 at UT22:10-22:55 P. Moore (Selsey, UK, 15" reflector, 
     x360 and x400) found an area just south east of the central peak (and 
     upto the wall) to be quite dark in blue light, but normal brightness in 
     red light or in white light. All other features were normal colour-
     wise. At 22:55UT Tycho was normal again. Cameron 2006 catalog ID=103 
     and weight=4. ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2019-Feb-17 UT 03:34-05:24 Ill=91% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1984-1-15

     Foley (Kent, UK) saw the west wall dull and stongly coloured. Moore 
     (Sussex, UK) saw the wall as normal. However Cameron points out that 
     Foley (Kent, UK) is a lot more Blue/UV sensitive than Moore. Mosely 
     (Covington, UK) at 22:10 UT noticed a brightening on the East wall and 
     at 01:10-01:25 UT suspected that the interior had a weak yellow-green 
     cast to it. Cook (Frimley, UK) states that orange colour was within the
     interior crater, but green beyond the east rim at the 9 O'Clock and
     the south east corner to floor blue/mauvre beyond the northern rim 
     NW/WSW. Foley sstates that orange and blue/mauvre might be spurious 
     colour, but green one cannot get this way. Cameon suggests chromatic 
     aberatons as a possibility but thinks that the observers concerned were 
     experienced enough to recognize this if it were the cause. Cameron 2006 
     catalog extension ID=239 and weight=0. Moore used a 15?" refletor and 
     Foley used a 12" refletor. Mosely experienced II seeing and good 
     transparency. Cook had III seeing and also good transparency. P. 
     Grego made an observation this night too. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=2.

2019-Feb-17 UT 06:01-07:24 Ill=91% Herodotus observed by Zeller_P on 2016-7-17

     On 2016 Jul 17 UT 03:49 P.Zeller (ALPO, Indianapolis, IN, USA) 
     imaged a pseudo-peak with shadow on the floor of Herodotus, 
     however the image scale and quality of this colour image were 
     not great and the observer suspects that it might be an 
     imaging artefact. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2019-Feb-17 UT 07:16-08:17 Ill=91% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1978-5-19

     P. Foley of Kent, UK, using a 12" reflector, seeing=III-II, noticed
     that initially that the crater was pretty dull and that the floor
     was a slate blue-gray in colour at 22:45UT. A noticeable green spot
     inside the crater on the south east appeared at 22:25UT and vanished
     at 00:50UT. Cameron notes that one doesn't get green with spurious 
     colour. Crater Extinction brightness measurements were made at 22:00 UT
     (reading=2.8) and at 23:45UT (reading=3.7). The crater dropped in 
     brightness from 3.7 to 2.8 at 23:50UT and remained lower until 3.0 at 
     23:50-03:15 UT. A graph was produced and showed Proclus and Censorinus 
     at similar brightnesses, but Aristarchus variable. The Earthshine was 
     0.3. Cameron 2006 Extension catalog ID=31 and weight=5.

     lights were seen by Pratt, and 28 by Elger, but only 4 by Gledhill, in 
     Brighton. Atmospheric conditions may have made this difference, or the 
     lights may have run up and down a scale from 4 to 28. As to 
     independence of sunlight, Pratt says (Rept. B.A., 1871-88), at to this 
     display, that only the fixed, charted points so shone, and that other 
     parts of the crater were not illuminated, as they would have been to an 
     incidence common throughout.(30) In Pratt's opinion, and, I think, in 
     the opinion of the other observers, these lights were volcanic."

2019-Feb-19 UT 09:51-10:20 Ill=100% Aristarchus observed by Mobberley_M on 1984-12-7

     On 1984 Dec 07 at UT 19:30-23:30 M. Mobberley (St Edmunds, UK, 
     seeing=IV-V, transparency=good, spurious colour seen) found 2 
     bright pathces on the east rim on alternate sides of a bright region. 
     The band from the central 16km wide region was dark on the east side. 
     Foley (Kent, UK, 12"reflector, seeing=II-III) found Aristarchus to be 
     not as bright as normal, apart from the band that Mobberley found (1 
     hour later). The dark regions were a murky green colour (bright through 
     green, blue and yellow filters and dark through red and orange 
     filters). Cook (Frimley, UK, transparency=excellent, CCD camera used) 
     found a bright "bulge"on the eastern side. Apparently data suggests 
     that the band was brighter in red than in near IR light. Cook's 
     calibrated brightness measurements suggest that there was no change in 
     brightness over the crater with time. Two other bright points were 
     seen: one at the Cobra's Head and another half way between the east rim 
     of Aristarchus and passes Herodotus. Wratten 29 (deep red), Wratten 87 
     (near IR) and combined Wratten 29 and Wratten 87 were used. In the red 
     Wratten 29 filter the brightness falls at22:20 at Shroters valley and 
     then rises in the bright ray. They return to normal at 22:30UT. There 
     was however a lot of measurement noise from the brightness readings of 
     points B and D. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=256 and the weight=5. The

2019-Feb-19 UT 10:09-10:20 Ill=100% Aristarchus observed by Darling_D on 1990-12-2

     F. Graham took some photos of the Cobras Head and found a blue cloud 
     about 50 km in diameter and scattering light - Cameron says that 
     this indicates high density. Darling found the Cobra's Head obscure and 
     variable "clear and bright to diffused". Cameron was alerted observed 
     (02:40UT) variations with periods of approximately 30 seconds, and 
     thought that she could see a red tinge on the east rim of Aristarchus - 
     checks elsewhere found no other colours. Darling found that a blue 
     filter enhanced the effect and a red filter made it disappear. There 
     was a blink at 02:55UT but no blink in the Cobra's Head, which looked 
     fuzzy and lacking in detail. The effect was confirmed by Weier, who 
     also saw two dark spots in the Cobra Head in blue but not in red light. 
     The brightness of the Cobras Head was 6.0, Herodotus floor 5.5, NW wall 
     7.5, South wall, 7.0, Aristarchus south wall 9.0, west wall 9.0, south 
     wall 7.0, East wall 8.0, and the central peak 10.0. Observer details 
     were as follows: Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 12.5" reflector, x159, 
     S=9/10).  D. Weier (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 12.5" reflector, x159, S=

2019-Feb-20 UT 02:55-04:51 Ill=100% Aristarchus observed by Porter on 1978-8-19

     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

     that the central peak of Aristarchus was quite bright and extended to a 
     circular region in the east in the crater "sprout" area - Cameron 
     suggests that this is Bartletts self defined EWBS area?. Beyond the rim 
     to the east was very bright. However no colour effect was seen in 
     filters. A sketch was supplied. Cameron notes the coincidence of 
     perigee and full Moon. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID is 416 and the 
     weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2019-Feb-21 UT 10:28-11:42 Ill=95% Aristarchus observed by Moore_P on 1978-5-24

     On 1978 May 24 at 00:40-01:05UT P. Moore (Sussex, UK, and using a 
     12.5" reflector at x300-400 - seeing IV) saw colour in Aristarchus (red 
     on the south east wall and southern "horn" of the crater. He could not 
     detect colour elsewhere, but felt that the effect might have been 
     spurious colour. With the increasing altitude of the Moon the light 
     effect decreased. Moore detected red the next night as well (May 25th) 
     and on May 27th, but it was not present on May 29th. The Cameron 2006 
     Extension catalog ID=33 and the weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2019-Feb-22 UT 03:22-04:20 Ill=90% Aristarchus observed by Cook_MC on 1990-1-14

     On 1990 Jan 14 at UT 01:14-01:55 M.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, seeing=poor) 
     observed that Aristarchus did not appear normal for this illumination. 
     the northern half of Aristarchus was "2x>" than the southern half of 
     the crater. There were two white patches of apron material near to the 
     crater Herodotus that were 50% of the brightness of the southern half 
     of Aristarchus. Furthermore the southern half of Aristarchus had a 
     circle - "dull patch on inner S wall with a bright point shining 
     through it. (Bartlett's EWBS?)". The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=389 and 
     the weight=4. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     confirmation of the previous Bartlett TLP? The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=
     619 and weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=5.


2019-Feb-23 UT 09:29-10:20 Ill=81% Aristarchus observed by Bartlett on 1955-10-5

     In 1955 Oct 05 at UT 03:40-03:48 Bartlett (Baltimore, MD, USA, 5"

     weight=3. 


2019-Feb-24 UT 05:31-07:04 Ill=72% Messier_A observed by Moore_P on 1951-10-20

     Messier A 1951 Oct 20 UT 00:00? Observed by Moore (England) 
     "Brilliant white circular patch in it. has seen it & Messier 
     blurred several times." NASA catalog weight=4 (good). NASA 
     catalog ID #545 Note that the date and time given are probably 
     wrong as the Sun is ~7deg below the local horizon at this time. 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1 to reflect this error.


2019-Feb-24 UT 06:29-07:18 Ill=72% Aristarchus observed by Haas_W on 1957-10-13

     Aristarchus 1957 Oct 13 UT 07:00?$ W.Haas, according to the 1978 
     NASA Catalog is supposed to have seen a bright spot of light -- 
     "explosion" in this crater. Confirmation of activity
     in Aristarchus - Three independent observations within 4 hours.
     Cameron 1978 catalog weight=5 and TLP ID No.=676. Private
     comunication with Haas shows that he recorded nothing unusual
     on the 12th or 13th. Therefore an ALPO/BAA weight of 1 has
     been given until this matter is cleared up.


2019-Feb-24 UT 07:41-08:48 Ill=72% Jansen observed by Grego_P on 2013-8-26

     Jansen 2013 Aug 26 UT 00:30-01:30 P. Grego (Cornwall, UK, 20cm 
     SCT, x200, seeing II, transparency good) observed a dark patch 
     just east of Jansen D. He had not seen this before. There maybe 
     a depression here hinted at in LOLA ndata. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Feb-24 UT 09:40-10:32 Ill=71% Posidonius_J observed by Holt_D on 2008-10-19

     On 2008 Oct 19 during 05:40-06:30UT D. Holt of Chipping, UK observed an 
     anomalous patch of illumination just to the west of the centre of the 
     Posidonius J crater. It is possible that this is just some high ground 
     on the floor protruding through the shadow filled crater at sunset. 
     Therefore this has been assigned a weight of 1 for now, just in case it 
     is a TLP - until proven otherwise.


2019-Feb-24 UT 10:33-10:57 Ill=71% Aristarchus observed by Louderback_D on 1991-7-31

     On 1991 Jul 31 at UT 07:50 D. Louderback (South Bend, WA, USA, 3" 
     refractor) observed that the south floor of Aristarchus was wellow - 
     "almost gold, spilled over S wall on ray toward Herodotus". Cameron 
     comments that Bartlett often reported a yellow floor but not a spill of 
     the colour over to the external ray. Cameron also comments that 
     Louderback's refractor would refract more in blue light than in yellow, 
     therefore she did not think that it was due to chromatic aberation. The 
     Cameron 2006 catalog ID=431 and the weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2. 


2019-Feb-24 UT 10:33-10:57 Ill=71% Mons_Piton observed by Louderback_D on 1991-7-31

     On 1991 Jul 31 at UT 07:50 D. Louderback (South Bend, WA, USA, 3" 
     refractor) found that all of Mons Piton was "unusually dark". Points D, 
     C (E and S resp), usually brightest points, but this time were not 
     bright. "Whole mt was as dark as W wall usually is at this time. In 
     violet filter Piton disappeared completely, but was a little brighter 
     in red filter and points D & G showed. Color not seen by eye. No albedo 
     measured. Suggests red event." Cameron rules out chromatic aberation 
     from Louderback's refractor. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=431 and the 
     weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Feb-25 UT 05:17-08:44 Ill=62% Calippus observed by Moore_P on 1952-9-9 *

     Callipus 1952 Sep 09 UT 21:00-21:20 Observed by Moore (England) 
     "Hazy broad line of light seen fr. NW wall to SE wall over shad. 
     floor. Gone next nite at 0120. He gave low wt. to obs. (sunlight 
     between peaks?)." NASA catalog weight=1. NASA catalog ID #553. 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Feb-25 UT 06:33-07:03 Ill=62% Aristarchus observed by Garbett_P on 1976-8-15

     Aristarchus 1976 Aug 15 UT 23:00-23:45 Observed by Garbott (2) 
     (Bedfordshire, England, 10" reflector x500, seeing Antoniadi I) 
     and by Moore (Sussex, England, 15" reflector, x360, seeing 
     Antoniadi IV) "Noted blue color on N. wall extending toward 
     Herod. Also saw orange color in S. region. Confirmed by father. 
     (similar to many of Bartlett's rept's.), More noted nothing 
     unusual at 2320h." NASA catalog weight=4. NASA catalog ID #1444. 
     ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2019-Feb-25 UT 06:43-08:09 Ill=62% Aristarchus observed by Stochard on 1862-11-12

     Stochard of Dublin, Ireland, saw naked eye at 10:30UT on
     1862 Nov 12 Aristarchus as extraordinarily bright as a bright
     spot on the Moon. This was seen in daylight with the waning
     crescent. Cameron 2006 extension catalog ID=6 and weight=3.
     ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2019-Feb-25 UT 06:44-07:10 Ill=62% Cabeus observed by LCROSS on 2009-10-9

     On 2009 Oct 09 UT11:00-11:04 NASA's LCROSS upper centaur stage, 
     followed 4 min later by the observation spacecraft, is due to impact 
     into a the crater Cabeus in the hope of kicking up some dust and 
     possible frozen volatiles. Note that this description is intended for 
     observers on the date of impact and it is doubtful that any new
     science could be achieved by re-observing the same area months
     after the impact. If you are observing on the date of impact, then 
     please observe around 11:00-11:04UT and ignore the predicted times in 
     the headings. However this report is included as techniqcally
     if something is seen it is a TLP, albeit man-made! For those observing 
     on the date in question here are a few observing tips to maximize 
     the science of your observations: (1) If you are imaging, then please 
     try to obtain images before the impact because you can then subtract 
     these from images taken during the impact and hence show up faint 
     changes that you might normally miss. (2) If you have a spare scope and 
     camera,use this to observe through filters such as UBVR or I, or if you
     have narrow band interference filters, try observing in
     say Hydrogen Alpha, Methane, OH, or indeed any volatile that you 
     might expect to see in a comet (the main source of water at the poles).
     (3) Please try checking the area long after the impact, just in
     case other effects might trigger a TLP. (4) Please go to some trouble 
     to ensure accurate timings- these will be essential in order to 
     understand the sequence of events - assuming any are seen. Timings can 
     be obtained using a short wave radio or via a GPS. Note that you should 
     always use UT or UTC. (5) Please send any observations that you make 
     into the upload section of the LCROSS campaign observers web site. If 
     you belong to an astronomical society e.g. BAA or ALPO, then do please 
     send copies of your observations to the Lunar Sections of your society 
     or club. (6) Finally this desription will be updated a day or two after 
     the planned impact.


2019-Feb-25 UT 06:56-08:48 Ill=62% Cabeus observed by Grego_P on 2009-9-9

     On 2009 Sep 09 UT23:31:43 P.Grego (St Dennis, Cornwall, UK, seeing II-
     III) suspected a flash south of Cabeus, just beyond the terminator.
     It was not bright, and lasted a fraction of a second. Thinks it might
     have been illusory as he saw some fainter flashes (cosmic rays?) 
     during that nights observing session. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Feb-25 UT 09:24-10:39 Ill=61% Hansen observed by Androsan on 1973-10-17

     On 1973 Oct 17 at Ut 11:30 Androsan (Edmonton, Canada, 6" reflector, 
     x230) observed a glow 1-2 sec reappearance of Saturn's rings at a place 
     of ring's appearance on the dark limb. The observers attributed it to 
     Saturn and its rings. Cameron speculates that it might be due to gas or 
     dust at the lunar surface. Eye was attacted to the glow which 
     delineated the limb at a position angle of 210 deg at emersion, at 
     Earthshine at Edmonton. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID= and weight=2. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Feb-26 UT 07:43-09:35 Ill=51% Alphonsus observed by Brook_C on 2009-9-11

     On 2009 Sep 11 UT00:15-00:20 and 01:00-01:05 C.Brook (Plymouth, UK, 5" 
     O.G., x100, seeing tremourlous but definition improving over time) 
     noticed that the central peak(s) in Alphonsus were brightening 
     gradually. No effect was seen earlier at UT23:30-23:35. One presumes
     that the effect also occured between these two observing times?
     The observer suspects that this was not a TLP, but is uncertain.
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Feb-26 UT 10:37-11:21 Ill=50% Copernicus observed by Brook_C on 1998-5-18

     On 1998 May 18 UT 02:00-03:16 C. Brook (Plymouth, UK, 60mm 
     refractor, x112, seeing III) observed an obscuration of the 
     central peaks of this crater. Copernicus ramparts were clearly 
     visible. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Feb-27 UT 08:33-08:51 Ill=41% Tycho observed by Cook_MC on 2009-9-11

     On 2009 Sep 11/12 UT23:28-00:00 M.C. Cook (Mundesley, UK, 90mm Questar,
     x80 and x190, seeing II and transparency moderate-poor) observed
     pink on the north west rim of Tycho and green-blue on the inner
     SW rim. No sign of colour elsewhere on the Moon except for the
     S-E rim of Plato that was red. The Moon was about 20 deg in altitude
     at the time. The effect had gone by the end of the observing period. 
     A simulation of spurious colour in different directions 
     was generated by the BAA Lunar Section and found to possibly account 
     for these colours, although there should have been some strong colours 
     seen elsewhere in Tycho and none were. The BAA/ALPO weight=2.


2019-Feb-27 UT 08:33-11:24 Ill=40% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

2019-Feb-28 UT 09:48-11:26 Ill=31% Aristarchus observed by Firsoff on 1937-9-28

     UT 08:30 or UT 20:30? SW inner wall of Aristarchus was intesnity
     I=0.5, but was I=2.5 on July 2 at Col. 195. Observing conditions were
     identical. Band is darkening near col. 180. (Observation made in 
     daylight?). Cameron 1978 NASA catalog ID=425 and weight=4
     (very experienced observer). ALPO/BAA weight=3. 


2019-Feb-28 UT 09:52-10:58 Ill=31% Tycho observed by Olivarez_J on 1993-9-10

     During sunset at this feature, with the interior in shadow
     the observer saw that the central peak was nebulous and fuzzy
     and not what one would expect. Cameron saw it on 9 Oct 1993
     at sunset and noted that it was not nebulous, just a grey patch
     although briefly she suspected perhaps two points/peaks?.
     The Cameron 2006 extended catalog ID is 467 and the weight is
     3. The ALPO/BAA weight is also 1. The observer used an 8"
     reflector and conditions were S=4 and T=4.

     reflector, x80) found Cleomedes (and other features) to glow, some with 
     flashes and pulsations. At 09:06 UT Cleomedes was glowing, but by 
     09:06UT it could no longer be seen. Cameron 2006 catalog ID=61 and 
     weight=0. ALPO. BAA weight=1.
