2018-Jun-01 UT 11:19-21:37 Ill=92% Daniell observed by Krieger on 1894-2-23

     Daniell 1894 Feb 23 UT 00:00? Observed by Krieger (Germany) 
     "Strong, brownish-red coppery hue." NASA catalog weight=4 and 
     catalog ID #281. ALPO/BAA weight=3.

2018-Jun-01 UT 11:19-12:48 Ill=92% Cleomedes observed by North_G on 1993-9-3

     Cleomedes Alpha 1993 Sep 03 UT2200-22:20 G. North (UK, 18.25" 
     reflector, x86 & x144) observed it to be a strikingly brilliant 
     'splodge' seen in the mostly shadow filled interior of 
     Cleomedes, and around this splodge was a faint halo extending 
     symetrically in an eastwards direction. The splodge was the 
     mountain Cleomedes Alpha. Strangely no shadow from the mountain 
     was seen to be cast onto the halo on the east. Observer alerted 
     other observers by phone, and upon returning to the scope found 
     that the splodge had faded in brightness and continued to fade 
     over the next hour as one would expect from a mountain at 
     sunset. Some heavy spurious colour was present. J. Cook & M. 
     Cook (Frimley, UK) observed at 22:20-22:25 and found the bright 
     splodge, but no halo. M. Cook re-observed later and confirmed 
     normal fading of splodge. Roscoe observed from 00:30UT next day, 
     but by that time Cleomedes Alpha had set and was no longer 
     visible in the shadow filled floor. S. Beaumont had observed 
     earlier at 20:00 but had recorded all as normal in Cleomedes. 
     The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=466 and weight=5. 
     The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

2018-Jun-01 UT 19:10-21:06 Ill=91% Torricelli_B observed by Mobberley_M on 1985-12-29

     On 1985 Dec 29th at UT 23:23-23:58, M. Mobberley (Bury St. Edmunds, 
     Suffolk, UK, seeing II-III) made a video scan of the Moon. P.W. Foley 
     examined the tape and noted something that Mobberley had not seen 
     visually. Two scans of Totticelli B had taken place, one at 23:23 and 
     the other at 23:58UT. In the first a brilliant point appeared briefly, 
     on the western rim, positioned at 3o'clock. In the second video 
     sequence this brilliant spot was present continuously and wandered 
     along the rim. It was possible to monitor frequency of turbulence 
     present, this apparent movement did not ppear to conform, although 
     judgement here was extremelydifficult as the feature was at absolute 
     point of resolution, a little better than 0.5 mile. Also considered was 
     the implication of the equipment effect, this did not seem to fit 
     either as other nerby craters in the same configuration, 30% shadow 
     filled with sunlight on exterior of western walls. A point to watch for 
     in future. ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     Pleiades)" The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=294 and the weight=3. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1. Note this may? refer to an occultation, in 
     which case it will be pointless to observe again for a 
     particular illumination.

2018-Jun-02 UT 21:21-21:32 Ill=84% Isidorus_K observed by Darling_D on 1979-4-16

     Something resembling a cigar shaped shiny object seen
     on S rim - hanging over a smaller crater. It looked like a bright
     aluminum can in the sun & cast a shadow onto the rim. The length 
     was 8-10 miles long x 1 mile wide at the central point. 
     It appeared tapered to points at both ends. Observer studied it
     for several hours. S term. ~60-70miles away. Apparently not related 
     to topog. Alt. 8deg. Cameron 2006 Extension catalog weight=3.
     ALPO/BAA catalog weight=1.

     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.


2018-Jun-03 UT 13:35-15:23 Ill=78% 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.


2018-Jun-03 UT 17:37-19:08 Ill=78% Plato observed by Foley_PW on 1975-6-28

     Plato 1975 Jun 28/29 UT 23:00-01:20. Foley (Wilmington, UK, 12" 
     reflector, seeing, III, good clarity transparency). At 23:00, 
     00:30, and 01:15 blue was seen on the inner wall:floor southern 
     boundary, and red on the corresponding northern floor:wall 
     boundary. However by 01:20, blue was now on the S-NW floor:wall 
     boundary, and red on the NE-SE floor:wall boundary. Atmospheric 
     spectral dispersion existed in many regions, but did not change 
     like the colours in Plato. Similar appearance craters such as 
     Grimaldi, Schickard, and Riccioli, were checked for a similar 
     change in colour, but no change was noticed in these. ALPO/BAA

     Aristarchus 2004 Dec 02 UT 01:55-02:45 Observed by Brook (Plymouth, 
     England, 60mm OG x120) "Fluctuation in the brightness and definition of 
     A of about 1/4 to 1/2 minute period. Rest of field unaffected. Checked 
     for cloud wih naked eye during fades - negative. Checked for misting 
     and tear salt on eyepiece by shifting A around the field - negative." 
     BAA Lunar Section report.


2018-Jun-03 UT 20:43-21:32 Ill=77% Aristarchus observed by Amato_M on 2004-12-2

     Aristarchus 2004 Dec 02 UT 03:00 Observed bt Michael Amato (West Haven, 
     CT, USA, 127mm Maksutov, x123) "The brightness variation (as seen by 
     Brook earlier) was very apparent. One thing never seen before by Amato 
     was a thin short bright ray that extended out in the opposite direction 
     as Aristarchus bright ray". The higher the Moon climbed in the sky the 
     more obvious this short thin bright ray became. An ALPO report.


2018-Jun-04 UT 13:55-15:13 Ill=70% 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.

     Aristarchus 2004 Dec 03 UT 00:00-01:00 Observed by Brook (Plymouth, 
     England, 60mm OG x120) "Fluctuation in the brightness in Aristarchus 
     still present but less pronounced than yesterday. Also saw the bright 
     short ray on the opposite side to the main ray in Aristarchus that 
     Amato saw yesterday - but this may be normal?" BAA Lunar Section 
     report.

     Plato 1975 Jun 29/30 UT 23:05-00:30. Foley (Wilmington, UK, 12" 
     reflector, seeing, III, good clarity transparency). At 23:05, 
     blue was seen on the inner wall:floor southern boundary, and red 
     on the corresponding northern floor:wall boundary. However by 
     00:30, blue was now on the W floor:wall boundary, and red on the 
     E floor:wall boundary. Atmospheric spectral dispersion existed 
     in many regions, but did not change like the colours in Plato. 
     Similar appearance craters such as Grimaldi, Schickard, and 
     Riccioli, were checked for a similar change in colour, but no 
     change was noticed in these. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     M.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, seeing=III-II) noticed that the crater had a 
     blue/green colour and that this varied, filling a large circular patch, 
     brightly illuminating to the ESE-SSE (IAU?) spilling over the wall and 
     the rim. Shadows inside the crater were large and elongated. The filter 
     response was greater in the blue than through a yellow or red

     On 1986 Mar 15 UT 19:51-19:55 A. Cook (Frimley, UK, Naked Eye 
     and 12" reflector, x60, seeing IV, transparancy poor) 
     observed a naked eye flash at 19:50.5 UT in the Mare Nubium 
     area. The flash was white in colour and lasted not longer 
     than 0.5 sec and was about magnitude 2 at most in brightness. 
     There was no rise or fade associated with this flash. Upon 
     checking the area with the telescope, the observer reproted 
     seeing a faint fuzzy small patch that came and went over 
     several seconds in the same general area - but this may have 
     been due to the seeing conditions and/or glare from the 
     bright side of the Moon. The patch area was about the same 
     size as Aristarchus, i.e. approx 40 km across. Note however 
     that observing conditons were too poor that night to see 
     Aristarchus. At later observing sessions from  20:30UT 
     onwards, the patch was not seen. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

2018-Jun-19 UT 07:38-09:34 Ill=37% Aristarchus observed by Cook_JD on 1981-3-11

     A faint white pinpoint flash seen and also in the same position
     a whitish glow around the crater. No futher flashes seen after the
     first one. From UT2117-2130 the glow was still visible but faded
     making it more difficult to locate. When Foley observed he found 
     Aristarchus not very visible in Earthshine, despite Plato, Grimaldi,
     and several other features being visible. Both observers used
     12" reflectors. Cameron's 2006 catalog Extension ID=124 and 
     weight=0. ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     On 1994 Jun 14 UT 21:45-22:00 G.Rogers (Crendon, UK, 3" Zeiss 
     refractor, sky conditions perfectly clear) reported seeing three 
     very large whitish clouds against the Moon. The strongest seemed 
     to "stem" from the vicinity of Santbech crater (crater 
     identified the next day from an atlas), and was a milk chocolate 
     colour near the stem. The other two large clouds were to the 
     north - in the general area of Mare Fecunditatis and Mare 
     Crisium though perhaps slightly further west and in contact with 
     the terminator? The effect was confirmed (independently) by 4 
     other observers using the same telescope. The telescope was 
     moved but the clouds remained in the same position over the 
     Moon. This report comes from The Astronomer Jan 2013 p 230.

2018-Jun-21 UT 07:04-08:24 Ill=59% Werner observed by Lippert_RM on 1953-9-16

     On 1953 Sep 16 UT03:00 R.M. Lippert (San Diego, CA, USA, 20cm 
     Cassegrain reflector, x90)saw a bright magnitude 1 flash on the 
     Moon, that was probably on the east rim of Werner(?) crater. It 
     is unclear if the observer meant it was really magnitude 1, or 
     was what a magnitude 1 star would have looked like. The flash 
     was yellow-orange in colour. Observation described in the 
     "Observations and Comments" column in the December, 1953

     the IAU renamed some craters.


2018-Jun-21 UT 07:45-08:33 Ill=59% Proclus observed by Darling_D on 1989-12-5

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

     2004 Nov 20 UT 02:34:03 R. Spellman (120mm F8.3 refractor at prime 
     focus,  PC23C CCTV camera, via a DVD recorder) recorded a flash of 
     light. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Jun-21 UT 09:15-10:08 Ill=60% 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.


2018-Jun-21 UT 11:30-13:14 Ill=61% Archimedes observed by Hill_EG on 1966-3-29

     (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.


2018-Jun-21 UT 12:29-13:15 Ill=61% Proclus observed by Mobberley_M on 1987-11-28

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


2018-Jun-21 UT 12:59-13:36 Ill=61% Censorinus observed by Cook_MC on 1987-11-28

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

2018-Jun-21 UT 13:11-13:36 Ill=61% Mons_Pico observed by Quinn on 1986-11-9

     On 1986 Nov 09 at UT 23:00 Quinn (Glebview, IL, USA, 8" reflector, x49-
     x305) found īn the vicinity of an unnamed ridge points toward Pico- two 
     bright points about 5 magnitudes brighter than any other part of the 
     Moon. The Alpine valley points directly between these two points. "Came 
     from apparently featureless area. Both points about the same size, but 
     different shapes ~ width of alpine valley" The observer used 4 
     different eyepieces and the points were brightest in the lowest power. 
     Other specks of light could be seen in the darkness wound the N point.

     the following in Plato: "A shadow in a depression, or a cloud, or an 
     optical illus.? Oval dark area nr. center, disappeared in 15m clear & 
     prominenet at first then vanished 4 of 14 spots nr. center continuously

2018-Jun-22 UT 08:27-09:34 Ill=70% 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.


2018-Jun-22 UT 08:32-09:14 Ill=70% Proclus observed by Darling_D on 1989-12-6

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

     Although the crater was on the night side, a small bright spot
     was seen. This was blue, almost UV, and equivalent to a star of
     magnitude 2. It flashed over intervals of about 30 seconds
     and changed in colour from UV to blue. The BAA Lunar Section
     TLP network was alerted. Mobberly and J.Cook did not see much
     although J. Cook may have seen something, but located else where?
     Cameron lists this as a confirmed? observation? The Cameron

2018-Jun-22 UT 14:34-14:38 Ill=72% 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.

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

     Peter Foley observed a tiny yellow-brown region close
     to the tip of the cape, north east of the precipitous west
     edge, in the face of the north facing slope. The area
     concerned was diffuse and varied in density despite
     the surroundings not varying. Foley notcied no colour
     elsewhere on the Moon, though Amery thought that he saw
     some in Aristarchus, but Foley thinks this was spurious.

2018-Jun-26 UT 12:01-13:58 Ill=97% Plato observed by Foley_PW on 1978-8-16

     Peter Foley (Kent, UK, 8" reflector, seeing=II) noticed that
     the floor beneath the north wall, and the area over the north
     wall were indistinct (almost out of focus). Despite looking
     elsewhere in the crater and surrounds, no other blurring
     (obscuration of detail) could be seen, indeed everywhere else
     was sharp and detailed. Foley tried several eyepieces but this
     made no difference. He used a crater extinction device but
     found no variations in brightness. There was a slight
     darkening when he used a red filter in the Moon Blink device.
     The obscuration effect weakened between UT20:56 and 21:10,
     was difficult to see at 21:13 and had finished by 00:15.
     Patrick Moore (12" reflector, Dublin, Ireland) saw nothing 
     unusual when he started observing at UT 22:00. Cameron says 
     "Photos marked at location of phenomenon". Cameron 2006

2018-Jun-26 UT 13:23-15:15 Ill=97% Aristarchus observed by Louderback_D on 1979-8-6

     Aristarchus normal in red and blue filters however the
     Cobra Head part of Schroter's Valley was brighter in blue.
     Indeed it was very dull in red - Louderback says that this
     was not surprising as the whole areas around Aristarchus is
     brighter in blue. Louderback is an experienced observer
     of the Aristarchus area of more than 10 years. Cameron 2006

2018-Jun-26 UT 13:44-14:29 Ill=97% Aristarchus observed by Louderback_D on 1985-12-25

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

2018-Jun-28 UT 18:43-20:09 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 
     Cameron 2006 catalog ID=37 and the weight=0. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jun-28 UT 19:53-20:09 Ill=100% Aristarchus observed by Coates_J on 1973-11-10

     Aristarchus 1973 Nov 10 UTC 20:00? Observed by Coates (England, 8" 
     reflector x200, Moon at gigh altitude above horizon). "Attracted to 
     crater because of an orange hue extending towards Herod. Has seen this 
     at other times. Thinks not a LTP, but actual color on ground."NASA 
     catalog weight=2 (low). NASA catalog ID #1381.


2018-Jun-29 UT 10:04-11:19 Ill=98% Copernicus observed by Rawlings_G on 1978-4-23

     On 1978 Apr 23 at UT20:35 (Rawlings, UK, finderscope, x50) 
     observed a bright flash (~0.3 sec duration) near to Copernicus (20W, 
     9N) with rays to the south east whilst he looked through a finder 
     scope. Moore, who studied the drawing, suggests that the area of the 
     flash was near Copernicus. However Cameron says this cannot be the case 
     if the flash was in darkness as mentioned in the BAA Lunar Section 
     circular. She comments that it might have been a meteor? The Cameron 
     2005 catalog ID=28 and weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2018-Jun-30 UT 15:17-17:12 Ill=95% Aristarchus observed by Pedler_J on 1990-1-13

     On 1990 Jan 13 at UT 22:15-23:05 J. Pedler (Bristol, UK, seeing=III and 
     transparency=excellent, no spurious colour) detected a blue region on 
     the north of Aristarchus, varying in sharpness/diffuseness. The crater 
     rim in this region could not be descerned. Eleswhere the crater rim was 
     normal as too were other features. When a Moon blink device was used, 
     no colour blink was detected, however through the blue filter the 
     suspected area was bright and the crater rim indistinct. Whereas 
     through the red filter the area looked perfectly normal. At 22:30UT the 
     effect had vanished and everywhere was normal. The Cameron 2006 catalog 
     ID=388 and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.
