2020-Jan-01 UT 06:27-06:30 Ill=32% Theophilus observed by Firsoff on 1955-6-25

     Theophilus 1955 Jun 25 UTC 20:30 Observed by Firsoff (Somerset, UK, 
     6.5" reflector, x240) "Blue mist. Both c.p. & ENE (IAU?) ridge appear 
     misty, slightly blueish & milky -- renders effect perfectly. Absent 
     next nite". NASA catalog weight= 4 (high). NASA catalog ID #596.


2020-Jan-01 UT 07:24-09:18 Ill=32% Posidonius observed by McConnell_J on 1968-4-3

     Posidonius 1968 Apr 03/04 UT 22:29-00:15 Observed by McConnell 
     (Antrim, N.Ireland, 3.5" refractor, x117, S=E) "Peculiarhaziness 
     in NE (ast. ?) corner of crater. Greenish-yellow tint similar to 
     M.Crisium at FM. Central crater was clearly vis. N.wall showed 
     no detail at all." NASA catalog weight=3. NASA catalog ID #1064. 
     ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2020-Jan-01 UT 08:04-09:31 Ill=32% Aristarchus observed by Miles_H on 1985-4-25

     On 1985 Apr 25 at UT 21:34-22:04 H. Miles (England) observed 
     Aristarchus within Earthshine. Foley (Kent, UK, 12" reflector) had 
     observed it one hour prior to Miles and found it to be both dull and 
     blue - with a bright patch west of the crater on Aristarchus Upsilon 
     Mountain. At 21:45UT 6 star-like flashes seen on the floor. They 
     occurred again a few minutes later and repeated at 22:04UT.By 21:45UT 
     the bright patch had gone though. Smith (England) had also apparently 
     seen the flashes and a further glow, albeit more north of the one seen 
     by Foley. Miles confirmed Smith's glow north of Aristarchus. 
     Peters did not see much, indeed found Aristarchus to be quite 
     faint (2130-2141). The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=264 and the 
     weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2. 


2020-Jan-01 UT 08:04-09:31 Ill=32% Torricelli_B observed by Cook_MC on 1985-4-25

     Curious lack of detail, but this may have been related to
     the seeing. Of greater interest though was a dark blue
     splodge where the crater should have been. Shadow seen through
     this splodge, but no crater rim seen.


2020-Jan-01 UT 08:20-09:48 Ill=32% Proclus observed by Cook_MC on 1985-4-25

     Almost certainly the following was spurious colour and not
     a TLP. Proclus was found to be brighter than Censorinus. 
     Red was seen on the northern inner floor and blue on the
     edge of the external north rim NNE-NW. The rim to the SW
     could not be seen. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Jan-01 UT 08:31-09:59 Ill=32% Aristarchus observed by _R_ on 1883-11-5

     A German observer by the pseudonym of "R" on 1883 Nov 05 UT 18:00 saw 
     Aristarchus as a vry bright 7-8th magnitude star in the dark part of 
     the Moon. The Cameron 1978 catalog assigns this event an ID of 240 and 
     a weight of 3. The ALPO/BAA weight is 1.


2020-Jan-01 UT 06:54-10:01 Ill=33% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

2020-Jan-02 UT 06:31-08:07 Ill=41% Aristarchus observed by Madej_P on 1985-4-26

     Aristarchus appeared to glow in Earthshine with a faint 
     green luminescence that moved from side to side. A bright
     blue central spot was also seen. The green colour was detected
     in two seperate eyepieces.  Observation made from England.
     Cameron 2006 catalog extension ID=266 and weight=2. 
     ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2020-Jan-02 UT 06:58-07:42 Ill=41% Plato observed by Thornton_FH on 1948-4-15

     Plato 1948 Apr 15 UT 20:00? Observed by Thorton (Northwitch, England, 
     9" reflector) "Brilliant orange-yellow flash 1 km inside E. rim  
     (similar to earlier #500 LTP flash in the dark)" NASA catalog weight=3 
     (average). NASA catalog ID #504.


2020-Jan-02 UT 08:31-10:08 Ill=42% Aristarchus observed by Johnson_G on 1985-4-26

     G Johnson of Swanton, MD, USA used a 2" refractor at f/12.
     Aristachus revealed as a red spot on a photo of the Moon. This
     was similar to another photo obtained on 1988 Apr 21st. Frame (with 3
     exposures present)reveals a dim star like point near Campanus on 
     exposure 1. Expsoure 2 shows it a little east on the Earth-lit 
     part. Exposure 3 shows it off the south-east limb. Apparently 20
     minutes later took 2 exposures and frame 18 was a double. The
     second exposure revealed an object farther from the limb but the
     first exposure does not show the object. The two high power exposures 
     do not show it. Cameron could not see the spots that Johson describes
     on his slides, but did see several spots (defects?) on the 
     8 and 12 second exposures near Hevelius and also on the 20 second
     exposure near to Hecataeus only. BAA members observed star like 
     flashes a few hours earlier - near Aristarchus. One BAA member, Madej, 
     had seen a green glow in Arisarchus in two places in two eyepieces.
     Cameron 2006 Catalog extension ID=265 and weight=2.

2020-Jan-02 UT 09:20-10:07 Ill=42% W_Limb observed by Vince_AW on 1948-4-15

     In 1948 Apr 15 at UT 20:00? Vince (England, UK) observed a bright spot, 
     about magnitude 3, in Earthshine, about 30deg north of Grimaldi., on 
     the west limb (90W, 25N). The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=503 and the 
     weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2020-Jan-02 UT 06:54-10:46 Ill=42% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

2020-Jan-03 UT 06:28-07:51 Ill=51% Cassini observed by Radford_P on 1972-1-23

     Cassini 1972 Jan 23 UT 16:55-17:15 P.Radford (Harlow, UK, 11.5cm 
     reflector) saw a large red flash followed by several weaker red 
     flashes, situated on the 32,335 foot spot elevation just above 
     the Cassini area. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2020-Jan-03 UT 06:28-09:07 Ill=51% Proclus observed by Cook_MC on 1993-5-28 *

     On 1993 May 28 at UT 21:02-21:30 M.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, 3.3" Questar 
     telescope, x80-x130, atmosphere hazey - poor transparency) noticed that 
     the east side rims were slightly fuzzy and suspects that this might 
     have been due to the illumination angle. A.C. Cook (Frimley, UK) 
     obtained some CCD images that revealed that the effect was to some 
     extent still there one hour later. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=461 and 
     the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2020-Jan-03 UT 06:46-08:37 Ill=51% Eudoxus observed by Trouvelot on 1877-2-20

     "Eudoxus" 1877 Feb 20 UTC 21:30-22:30 Observed by Trouvelot (Meudon, 
     France, 13" refractor?) "Fine line of light like a luminous cable, 
     drawn W. to E. across crater". NASA catalog weight=1 (very low). NASA 
     catalog ID #185. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Jan-03 UT 07:36-08:24 Ill=51% Ptolemaeus observed by Ingalls on 1866-4-22

     Ptolemaeus 1866 Apr 22 UTC 20:00? Observed by Ingalls (Champion Hills, 
     England, UK) "Crater on term., unusually smooth surf. seemed much 
     diversified & gave impression, as at many other times that there was an 
     obscuring medium". NASA catalog weight=3 (average). NADA catalog ID = 142. ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2020-Jan-03 UT 08:33-10:18 Ill=51% Aristarchus observed by Mobberley_M on 1985-4-27

     Mobberley and Foley note that Aristarchus was very
     prominent in Earhshine. Little other detail seen
     in Earthshine other than the limb. The Cameron
     2006 extension catalog then says: "Confirm moving 
     side to side. Saw bright blue spot in center" however 
     it is unclear whether this refers to Aristarchus,
     or Torricelli-B - the latter was also undergoing a TLP
     at this time. Cameron 2006 extension catalog ID=267
     and weight=5 (confirmed?). 


2020-Jan-03 UT 08:33-10:18 Ill=51% W_Limb observed by Mobberley_M on 1985-4-27

     On 1985 Apr 27 UT 22:00 M. Mobberley (Suffolk, UK) could not see much 
     detail in Earthshine (apart from Aristarchus), except that there was a 
     brightness on the western limb of the Moon. The Cameron 2006 catalog 
     ID=267 and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Jan-03 UT 09:26-11:13 Ill=51% Mons_Piton observed by Louderback_D on 1986-10-11

     On 1985 Oct 11 at UT 04:56-05:12 D. Louderback (South Bend, WA, USA, 
     4" refractor, x95, seeing=1-2-1 and transparency=4) detected a change 
     in brightness of Mons Piton point D (his designation) during 04:56-
     04:59. The whole of the east slope was affected - initially bright and 
     then faded and there was a blue colour (detected with filters). The 
     variabilty was 8-11sec (Cameron suspects atmosphere as the altitude was 
     low). The brightness stabilized at 05:12UT, but variability resumed 
     until observing finished. As a comparison Aristillus was not seen to 
     change. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=287 and the weight=1. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=1.


2020-Jan-03 UT 10:07-11:12 Ill=52% W_Limb observed by Barrett on 1973-12-2

     On 1973 Dec 02 at UT 22:17:33 Barrett and Brick (New York, 3.5" Questar 
     freflector) observed an occultation of Kappa Aquari, a wide double 
     star, on the western limb. The star faded perceptably before 
     disappearing. Cameron says that the fact that the star was a double was 
     not an explanation - she says that there are many reports of similar 
     fades for single stars. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1384 and weight=4. 
     The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Jan-03 UT 11:13-12:29 Ill=52% Ptolemaeus observed by Cook_AC on 1978-4-15 *

     Ptolemaeus 1978 Apr 15 UTC 21:54-22:20 Observed by A.Cook 
     (Frimley, Surrey, UK, 12" reflector x240, S=IV (Antoniadi)) 
     "Small triangular area on the NW floor of the crater, at the 
     foot of the rim, was slightly brighter in blue light than in red 
     (Moonblink used). Suspected this was due to the poor observing 
     conditions. Certainly blink reaction was not unmistakable". 
     ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     On 1931 Mar 27 R.Barker (observing from Cheshunt, UK, 12.5" reflector) 
     found that the central mountain in the brilliant ray crater Tycho was a 
     curious shade of grey. This was despite the interior of Tycho being 
     fully in shadow. Cameron 1978 catalog ID=400 and weight=3. ALPO/BAA

     On 1982 Jun 30 at UT 02:05-02:15 Marco Petek (Porto Alegre, 
     Brazil) found that the region between Eratosthenes and Bode 
     (7W, 13N) looked like it had a darkening (cloud?) that had 
     even darker points inside. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=172 
     and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2020-Jan-04 UT 06:29-08:18 Ill=60% Tycho observed by Spellman_R on 2003-5-10

     Tycho 2003 May 10 UTC 03:15 Observer Robert Spellman (Los Angeles, USA) 
     - "CCD video of spur-like features coming off N & S edges of central 
     peak - spurs pointed eastwards". It is now thought that this effect is 
     almost certainly seeing flare as it is visible on other features in the 
     image, although to a much lesser extent. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Jan-04 UT 08:18-10:40 Ill=61% Tycho observed by Spellman_R on 1996-4-27 *

     1996 Apr 27 UTC 02:26-03:14 Observed by Spellman (Los Angeles, CA, USA)
     " 02:26 U.T. Sunrise on Tycho 3/4 of the crater was in shadow, 
     topmost section of the central peak was in sunlight. In white light 
     brightness of the central peak rivaled the brightness of the Eastern
     (sunlit) wall. No change was detected in red light, however in blue 
     light definite strong darkening was observed. Blink obtained when 
     viewing thru 25A and 38 filters. At 2:52 U.T. in the poor to fair 
     seeing the apparent size of the central peak in white and red light was 
     the same, in blue light the central peak in white and red light was the 
     same, in blue light the central peak size shrank to 1/2 white and red 
     size (and brightness). Also appearing sharper. Comparison was made also 
     with the central peak of Alphonsus, no changes were observed. The 
     significant part of the observation was the relative brightness of the 
     central peak to the sunlit rim in white and red light, they appeared 
     almost identical with the crater rim, being just slightly brighter. In 
     blue light the brightness of the central peak was reduced by at least 
     half while the rim brightness was not, (relative to one another). I 
     strongly believe that this was a real event. The shadow filled 
     portion of Tycho was examined for any abnormalities but none 
     were observed. Observations were ended shortly after 3:14 U.T. due to 
     clouds. I also conducted about 20 Moon blink observations during this 
     observing run and got the same strong reaction each time." ALPO/BAA
     weight=3.


2020-Jan-04 UT 08:21-10:16 Ill=61% Proclus observed by Westmoreland_S on 1972-7-19

     Proclus 1972 Jul 19 UT 21:24-21:30 observed by S.Westmoorland 
     (Cropwell-Bishop, UK, 15cm reflector, x48 & x96, image dull 
     but steady) observed a brilliant spot in the NE (IAU?) wall 
     which lasted for about 90 seconds. After fading it was 
     replaced by pulsations for a further 2 minutes. Clouds 
     prevented further observations. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Jan-04 UT 09:07-10:58 Ill=61% Alphonsus observed by Brook_C on 2001-6-29

     On 2001 Jun 29 at UT22:16-22:22 C. Brook (Plymouth, UK, 60mm refractor, 
     x120, no spurious colour seen, seeing I) observed that the central 
     peaks of Alphonsus looked bright at 22:16UT but had dimmed by 22:22UT. 
     The three dark patches on the floor of Alphonsus were clearly seen. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Jan-04 UT 09:07-10:58 Ill=61% Arzachel observed by Brook_C on 2001-6-29

     On 2001 Jun 29 at UT 22:16-22:20 C. Brook (Plymouth, UK, seeing 
     conditions very good, x120) reported that the central peak of Alphonsus 
     was brighter than the central peak of Arzachel (or was it the other way 
     around?). Cook observed 4 hours later from Washington DC, USA and found 
     that on CCD images that the central peak of Alphonsus was only slightly 
     less than that of Arzachel. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     On 1976 Nov 03 at UT20:00-21:40 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK) reported a TLP in 
     Gassendi - some obsevers detected colour, others did not. P. Moore did 
     not notice anything unsual earlier at 18:50-19:00, though his seeing 
     was IV-V. Nor did he see anything unsual from 21:53-00:20, but seeing 
     was still IV-V. D. Jewitt, observing 20:34-21:25 and 22:55-23:20 also 
     reported nothing unusual. Amery (Reading, UK, 25cm reflector, x300) did 
     however notice a small reddish spot to west of central ridge, but by 
     20:30UT the colour was less obvious, but the spot was back again at 
     20:45, but not easily seen at 21:00 and gone completely by 21:45UT.  
     N.Bryant (Ilfracombe, UK, 25.4cm reflector, x260), observed 3 red

2020-Jan-07 UT 08:04-09:14 Ill=87% Deslandres observed by Penzel_E on 1965-5-12

     On 1965 May 12 at UT 19:10 E. Penzel (Rodewisch, East Germany) was 
     taking a sequence of images during the impact of the Soviet Lunik 5. He 
     detected a tens of km scale elongated cloud after the impact over a 
     duration of 9.5 minutes. However there are differences between the 
     images elsewhere on the Moon, possibly due to different exposures or 
     some other effects and it is not 100% sure that what he detected was 
     impact debris/cloud?. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2020-Jan-07 UT 08:07-09:58 Ill=87% Aristarchus observed by Lipskii on 1964-6-21

     On 1964 Jun 21 at UT 21:18 Lipskii and Pospergelis (Shternberg State 
     Ast. Institute, AZI-2" reflector (Cass.) observed Aristarchus: 
     "Polarization meas. with electron polarimeter. Plane of polariz. 
     rotated 2deg fr. the adjacent areas. They interpret it as some 
     scattering medium over the crater. (Source gave date as 6/31/64,

2020-Jan-07 UT 08:34-08:58 Ill=87% Manilius_B observed by Robinson_JH on 1980-8-22

     On 1980 Aug 22 at 02:15-21:29UT J-H Robinson (Teighmouth, Devon, UK, 
     12" reflector, x200, seeing=II) noticed in the area south east of 
     Manilius that it was brighter in red light than in blue light at 
     20:15UT whereas 1 minute later it was the same brightness in each 
     filter. The effect reappeared at 20:21UT and was particularly strong at 
     20:32UT. Foley (Kent, UK) verified this at 21:01UT - the blink area was 
     of high reflectivity in white light and was bright in red at 21:15UT, 
     thougjh the south east area stopped giving a colour reaction at 
     21:25UT. Madej (Huddersfield) found Manilius B to be norm al at 23:52UT 
     however at 23:55UT it was surrounded by a transient white ring that 
     varied in visibility in an irregular way. Foley found Manilius B had a 
     vivid blue interior and in blue light the ring was black. and not at 
     all seen in red or white light. The CED brightness measurement varied 
     from 1.9 to 2.4. All other regions observed were normal in brightness. 
     Violet was seen on the west wall of Aristarchus though. M.Price 
     (Camberley, UK) found a possible blink in Manilius B but was observing 
     under poor seeing conditions. Cameron 2006 catalog ID=105 and weight=5. 
     ALPO/BAA weight=4.


2020-Jan-07 UT 10:09-12:07 Ill=87% Herodotus observed by Haas_W on 2003-5-13

     On 2003 May 13 at UT06:40-07:26 W. Haas (Las Cruces, NM, USA, 12.5" 
     reflector, x321 and x202, S=2, T=3.5) suspected (06:40-06:55UT) that he 
     saw an oval bright feature (intensity 5.5) near the centre of the floor 
     of Herodotus crater indenting into the shadow - however the seeing was 
     none too good, so it is more of a suspicion than a definite sighting. 
     At 07:14-07:26UT he re-examined the region (x202 and x321, S=1-2 and T=
     3.5) and had better glimpses that conformed his initial suspicions of 
     there being an oval indentation bright spot (now intensity 6) into the 
     shadow in the centre of the floor. Of course Herodotus does not have a 
     central peak! There was also a very bright spot on the NW> sunlit rim 
     of Herodotus crater. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2020-Jan-07 UT 11:13-12:26 Ill=87% Bailly observed by Miles_H on 1965-5-12

     On 1965 May 12 at UT 22:20 H. Miles (UK) found a possible 
     obscuration in Bailly crater. Most of the region was as sharp as 
     normal, but the central area was greyish and blurred. Although 
     the observer concerned considered themselves a non-experienced 
     observer, another BAA Lunar Section observer saw the same 
     effect. ALPO/BAA weight=2.

2020-Jan-08 UT 06:43-08:39 Ill=93% Aristarchus observed by Cook_JD on 1985-5-2

     On 1985 May 02 at UT 20:20-20:38 J.D. Cook (Frimley, UK) noted at 20:20 
     found the south rim (and just outside) to be blurred in appearence and 
     there was also a hazy shadow inside the crater. M.C. Cook found a 
     "break in clarity in break on S wall". Miles (UK) also found the south 
     wall blurred in appearance and Foley (Kent, UK) noted that the area was 
     featureless and the 2 craters positions at 1 o'clock high up on the 
     inner wall were obscured", although just north of these was sharp 
     detail. Foley also recorded that the shadow on the east wall was 
     opaque"and that thye inside of Aristarchus was slate/blue in colour and 
     dull, however by 20:28 the crater had brightened by 0.4 steps on 
     Foley's CED device and the missing craterlets were visible again. Jean 
     (Canada, 4" refractor) observed a rose colour intermittently (UT 1948-
     20:58) - however Cameron suspects that this is chromatic aberation.

2020-Jan-08 UT 06:51-08:37 Ill=93% Archimedes observed by North_G on 1988-9-23

     On 1988 Sep 23 at 19:40-19:55 & 20:36-20:41 G. North (760mm 
     Coude Rrefractor, x250, Royal Grenwwich Observatory, 
     Herstmonceux, UK, seeing V, Transparency: Fair). 19:40-19:55 
     image very unsteady. All seems normal in other crtaters with 
     the exception of Arcimedes. Much of the rim seems indistinct 
     apart from a 1/4 length of the west rim. Strongly suspected 
     that this was due to a combination of seeing and illumination. 
     UT 20:02-20:06 - checked the area with a lower magnification 
     10" Astrographic Refractor - the crater seems more normal, so 
     suggesting that the theory was correct. 20:36-20:41 returned 
     to the 30" reflector, and the crater appeared similar to the 
     start of the session. This is almost certainly not a TLP, but 
     it would be helpful to have some images or sketches to check 
     this theory out. Weight=1.

     III from 20:15-22:30, but the clouded out at 22:30, and from 
     23:15-01:15 seeing was IV-V with poor transparency) observed 
     (22:20-20:45 UT) variation in the SE corner of the 
     Aristarchus, namely the usual dark bands were alternating 
     light to dark, not in keeping with otyher crater features. 
     This effect was not linked to atmospheric turbulence. Also 
     projected image of bands beyond the crater W. wall were 
     repeatedly noted. The observer broke away from observing at 
     20:45UT to make a telephonealert call. At 20:55UT they noted 
     that the area between Vallis Schroteri and Herodotus seemed 
     very light/bright, also the E. exterior of the crater wall of 
     Herodotus. From 21:01-21:11 A slight blueness was seen to 
     extend from the NE corner of Aristarchus, along the exterior 
     rim, acrossand beyond Herodotus to the SW. A tgorough search 
     was made of many bright areas, both near the terminator and to 
     the E., but no blueness could be detected elsewhere. A slight 
     orange hue was noted along the E. limb of theMoon (Spurious 
     colour). From 21:18;22:30 Aristarchus seemed normal again, and 
     likewise the head of Vallis Schoteri too. The observer was 
     clouded out from 22:30-23:15and from 23:15-01:30 the seeing 
     was so appaling that no colour or projection of the bands 
     could be seen. A Moon Blink was used during the session, but 
     no colour was detected in this? Another observer, R.W. Rose 
     (Devon, UK) observed 21:20-21:30 but had IV seeing, and saw 
     nothing unusual, but commented that if TLP wactivity had been 
     taking place, then they would probably not have seen it. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     (Guilford, UK, binoculars), Foley (Dartford, Kent, UK, 12" reflector 
     and photographs), and McKay (Kingston, England, UK, 6" reflector, x48) 
     observed the following in Aristarchus during a lunar eclipse: "It 
     appeared much fainter than ever before seen in ecl. by Moore. Fainter 
     than Proc., Cop., & Tycho. Others rated brightness in order-- Hell, 
     Stevinus, Furnerius, proc.; & Proc., Tycho, Hell, Aris. Photos 
     confirmed dimness of it. For some observers it became invis. at S=II 
     (good). Good ranked at least 4 other craters brighter than Aris. & that 
     at 2035h it dimmed. Earthshine cond. extraordinarily good. Peters, at 
     S=IV (fair?) rated Aris. brightest". At 23:50UT LeCroy Jr and Sr 
     (Springfield, VA, 4.5" reflector, S=7) observed four glowing spots on 
     the Moon during a lunar eclipse (including Aristarchus). At 23:50UT 
     Aristarchus was an oval shape with no details seen. It had a ray 
     extending from the south west rim (normal). The north rim was slightly 
     blue and the south west rim very very slightly red. At 23:55UT it was 
     clearing and details showed. At 00:02UT it was clear. Sketches were 
     provided. Cameron comments that the colours fit Fitton's predictions on 
     spectral dispersion in our atmosphere from atmospheric inversions. The 
     brightness measued was 10+ and normal should be 9, and the plain is 
     4.5. The Moon's altitude at the LeCroy site was 45 deg. The Cameron
