     (Riverdale, New York, USA, 8" reflector, x256) observed in the 
     Aristarchus, Herodotus, Schroter's valley area: two red spot glows, 
     glimmer, looked like ruby gems. Cameron says that the date was 
     predicted by Greenacre and looked for. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=817 
     and weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=4.

2019-Feb-08 UT 13:32-14:26 Ill=11% Thales observed by Barnard on 1892-4-1

     Thales 1892 Apr 04 UT 04:00-04:30 Observed by Barnard (Lick 
     Observatory, CA, USA, 36" refractor?, S=4/5) "Filled with pale luminous 
     haze tho all surrounding features were sharp & normal. Walls also hazy

2019-Feb-08 UT 13:56-14:26 Ill=12% Promontorium_Laplace observed by Ashton on 1989-2-9

     On 1989 Feb 09 at UT 19:00 Ashton (Stafford, UK, seeing=V) observed a 
     "green glow in the "peninsular region" of Cape La Place (south of poss. 
     Helicon A?) and brown on the Earthlit limb. Foley (Kent, UK, 12" 
     reflector) noticed a "pin point glow surrounded by blue-green halo" 
     through a blue filter, but not seen through a red filter. He also 
     suspected some brightness variations. He noted that Aristarchus was 
     barely seen and Copernicus was only a faint smudge, presumably because 
     of the bright limb? J. Cook (Frimley, UK) observed a white glow in the 
     Cape region (made up of pin points?) - no other places had a similar 
     effect. P. Moore (Selsey, UK, 12" reflector) reported that nothing 
     unsual was to be seen anywhere on the Moon. M. Cook (Frimley, UK) found 
     a "bright point source near the tip of LaPlace perhaps maupertius D (or 
     LaPlace D?)." This was seen in a blue filter but not through a red 
     filter - the limb was also seen as bright and the cape as a faint 
     patch. Holmes (Lancashire, UK, 30"? reflector or refractor?) although 
     commenting that Aristarchus was a bit dull, could not see the Sinus 
     Iridum glow, North (UK) could only detect the vague presence of 
     Earthshine throug his finder scope, but not in his telecope. The 
     Cameron 2006 catalog ID=349 and the weight=2. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

2019-Feb-09 UT 14:25-15:16 Ill=19% Proclus observed by Edmonds on 1989-2-10

     On 1989 Feb 10 at UT 19:00? Edmonds (England) observed a "bright red 
     coppery" colour in the northwestern part of Proclus crater. He checked 
     and found that there was no colour elsewhere, though he still suspects 
     that the effect was spurious colour. Cameron comments that usually blue 
     is seen in the north and red in the south if due to spurious colour.

2019-Feb-10 UT 14:26-16:01 Ill=27% 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. 


2019-Feb-10 UT 14:26-16:01 Ill=27% 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.


2019-Feb-10 UT 14:42-16:05 Ill=27% 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.


2019-Feb-10 UT 15:05-16:05 Ill=27% 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. 


2019-Feb-10 UT 13:29-16:07 Ill=27% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

2019-Feb-11 UT 13:04-13:50 Ill=36% Mare_Crisium observed by Webb_TW on 1832-7-4

     Webb (England, using a fluid achromat) saw brilliant minute spots and 
     streaks in Mare Crisium dotting its surface. This was seen near first 
     quarter. Cameron states that Schroter, Betr?, Madler, Slack and Ingall 
     had all seen it this way at times. Cameron 1978 catalog iD=111 and 
     weight=3. ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2019-Feb-11 UT 13:04-14:40 Ill=36% 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.


2019-Feb-11 UT 13:04-14:27 Ill=36% 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.

     ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2019-Feb-11 UT 13:54-15:15 Ill=36% Aristarchus observed by Butler_FC on 1981-3-12

     On 1981 Mar 12 at UT 19:25-20:30 Butler (of Brixton, UK, using a 
     10" reflector at 32-64x) noticed that Aristarchus was not 
     visible, although the Earthshine was very obvious. Foley (of 
     Kent, UK, and using  12" reflector) noticed that the crater was 
     only just visible but Plato could definitely be seen. Cameron's 
     2006 TLP extension catalog ID=125 and weight=0. ALPO/BAA 
     weight=2.


2019-Feb-11 UT 15:02-16:27 Ill=36% 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.

2019-Feb-12 UT 13:04-13:10 Ill=46% Mons_Piton observed by Marshall_KP on 1983-5-20

     On 1983 May 20 at UT00:00-03:00 K. Marshall (Medellin, Columbia) 
     noted that Mons Piton was too bright near the terminator and was 
     surrounded by shadow. A sketch was made. The mountain appeared 
     segmented with one thin shadow line. The mountain looked like a 
     Mexican Sombrero hat. This appearance is normal. What was 
     abnormal was that Piton was brighter than Proclus, and only 
     slightly fainter than Censorinus. The CED brightness 
     measurements were normal Piton=3.6, Proclus=3.5 and Censorinus=
     3.7. Please check to see whether this is still the case. The

     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 
     Strolling Astronomer (Vol. 7, No. 12), on page 170. The ALPO/BAA

     Pickering 1971 Jan 04 UTC 20:29-20:37 Observed by Collier (London, 
     England) "Between Saunder and Rhaeticus, apparently coming from Pick. 
     After 2027h it dimished with extraordinary swiftness, like a light goes 
     out. (experienced observer)" NASA catalog weight=?. NASA catalog ID #

     a flash of light. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Feb-12 UT 15:13-16:25 Ill=46% 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?). 


2019-Feb-12 UT 15:13-16:25 Ill=46% 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.

2019-Feb-12 UT 16:09-17:48 Ill=47% 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.

     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.


2019-Feb-13 UT 13:28-13:54 Ill=57% Tycho observed by Barker_R on 1931-3-27

     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

2019-Feb-13 UT 15:35-17:22 Ill=57% 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

2019-Feb-14 UT 16:16-18:13 Ill=68% Mare_Imbrium observed by Caruso_J on 1979-8-3

     A region of the Mare Imbrium was extremely bright, giving
     a reading of 8 out of 10 on the Elger scale. Cameron notes
     that from photos of the Full Moon, the area appears to
     normally be the brightness of Archimedes floor i.e. 3.5 out
     of 10 on the Elger scale. Atmospheric seeing was excellent
     and the observer could see a lot of fine detail with their
     2.4" and 3" refractors. Cameron 2006 catalog extension ID=62

     that he could only just see the central craterlet on nights of 
     2-5th Jun and it was of reduced in brightness from normal. 
     North reported that the floor seemed nearly black, but 
     brighter in a green filter (x144 magnification used). All 
     three observers compared the Plato area to other areas for

     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.

     (Winemucca, NV, USA, 152mm f/9 refractor, seeing 4-5, trasparency 4-5, 
     x114, x228) "Blinked Herodotus with Wratten filters Blue 38A and Red 
     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."

2019-Feb-17 UT 13:25-14:41 Ill=94% 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.

     Amery (Reading, England) saw blue in Aristarchus but a photograph did 
     not show the colour. Foley thinks this was spurious colour. Cameron

2019-Feb-17 UT 16:25-18:13 Ill=94% Promontorium_Laplace observed by Foley_PW on 1978-4-20

     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.

2019-Feb-17 UT 19:56-21:54 Ill=95% 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

2019-Feb-17 UT 21:19-22:42 Ill=95% 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
     extended catalogID=63 and weight=1. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Feb-17 UT 21:35-22:30 Ill=95% 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.

2019-Feb-19 UT 19:49-22:09 Ill=100% Aristarchus observed by Darling_D on 1989-10-15 *

     David Darling observed bright glittering on Aristarchus. This
     was followed by a flare up in brightness at 00:38:05 UT in the
     comet-like ray area of the crater equivalent in intensity to the
     central peak. Then he saw another one on the north east rim of 
     Aristarchus of the same brightness. A third flare was seen at
     00:49UT in south of Herodotus, on the comet-like ray. Another
     two flares were observed at 00:56UT on the north west rim of
     Aristarchus. Darling suspects that these effects were due
     to seeing effects and Cameron agrees. However Weier suspects
     that they were TLP? Brightness measurements by Weier were for
     the south west rim of Herodotus 8.0, for a spot at the Cobra's
     Head 9.0 and 7.5 for C.H. Cameron apparently did not see the flashes
     but did suspect that the interior of Aristarchus was a bit unusual.

     Aristarchus 1976 Aug 11 06:44 Observed by Bartlett (Baltimore, MD, USA, 
     4.5" reflector, 45-300x, S=4-3, T=4) "Pale viol. radiance (gas?) on 
     plateau m. Dark viol. tinge on nimbus. C.p.=10 deg walls=8deg, & all of

     weight=4 (high). NASA catalog ID #1441.


2019-Feb-20 UT 15:42-16:47 Ill=98% Torricelli_B observed by Cook_AC on 1985-12-28

     CCD images taken through Wratten 25 (red+near IR) and 87 
     (near IR only) filters. Between 00:02 and 00:25UT there
     was some slight evidence that a fade may have taken place
     however careful analysis by Cook casts doubt on this.
     Probably it was more related to a degradation in image 
     quality due to seeing than a true TLP. An ALPO/BAA
     weight of 1 has been assigned.


2019-Feb-20 UT 17:42-19:31 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.

     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
