2019-Aug-03 UT 14:38-14:51 Ill=9% Mare_Tranquillitatis observed by Dezmelyk on 1971-2-27 *

     On 1971 Feb 27 at UT 23:50-00:00 Dezmelyk (Newtown Square, 
     Pennsylvania, 2" refractor, x225, x500, seeing=good) observed in 
     Earthshine a peculiar white glow too far from the terminator to be 
     sunlit. 9 minutes later they could not detect this, nor any other 
     spots. The spot concerned was about 8-9th magnitude - "like galaxies". 
     They checked the lens for dirt but it was clean. A drawing was 
     provided. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1285 and weight=2. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=2.


2019-Aug-05 UT 13:56-15:33 Ill=27% Grimaldi observed by Lucas on 1970-4-11 *

     On 1970 apr 11 atUT 05:29 Lucas (San Diego, CA, USA, 10" refelctor, 
     seeing=fair) and others (Oregon, USA) obtained a photometric record of 
     light level changes in Grimaldi crater. Visible reports by others 
     during the same time. The photometer paper chart pen moved off scale on 
     a 10mV scale adjusted to 1000mV. The peaks correlate with the visible 
     observers from California and Oregon. Bright flashes, 3-5 events 
     (confirmation during the Apollo 13 watch). The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=

2019-Aug-16 UT 18:41-20:33 Ill=98% Taruntius observed by Wildey on 1962-9-15

     In 1962 Sep 16 at UT08:05 Wildey, Pohn (Mt Wilson, CA, USA, 60" 
     reflector) Taruntius faded from Vmag-3.21 to 4.04, a 0.82 difference in 
     magnitude in 2.5 hours - a photometric measurement. The average 
     magnitude for this age is 4.03, so therefore the crater had brightened 
     by two times above normal. The Cameron 1978 catalogID=769 and the 
     weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     USA, 8" reflector x300) "Landslip at west would not focus. (Ricker not 
     certain it was a real LTP)." NASA catalog weight=2 (low). NASA catalog 
     ID 973.


2019-Aug-17 UT 20:21-22:11 Ill=95% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1983-10-23

     Aristarchus 1983 Oct 23 UT 19:00-01:30 Observer: Foley (Kent, UK, 
     12" reflector, seeing=II) noiced at 19:00UT an extended bright 
     spot on E wall and extending beyond. This was brighter than other 
     areas of the crater. There was also occasional star-like 
     glistening. Foley comments that the inside of Aristarchus was 
     slightly obscured. The TLP started fading from UT20:30 and 
     finished by 01:30UT. six out of nine independent observers 
     confirmed the effects seen. In total 14 observers observed, 9 
     reported back and 6 found abnormalities in Aristarcus though all 
     encountered variable seeing conditions - some had spurious 
     colour. Cameron comments that this was one of the best 
     recorded/confirmed TLP events. All CED brightness measurements 
     obtained were very high. Moore, Nicolson and Clarke (5" refractor 
     and 15" reflector, 230-350xseeing III) found the crater to be 
     very bright at 19:11UT through a 5" refractor and there was a 
     blob on the east rim (Bartlet's EWBS?) at 19:14UT. Nicolson also 
     saw a very bright star-like area on the eastern wall but this was 
     not defined as it usually is. The crater was also very bright at 
     22:43UT using the 15" reflector available to these observers. At 
     01:07UT they used a Moon blink and discovered that the bright 
     region was bright in blue light and less bright in red - although 
     this was not a detactable blink when switching rapidly between 
     filters. They found that the crater had returned to normal by 
     01:15UT. M.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, seeing III-IV) observed a large 
     diffuse spot on the east of the crater that was brighter in blue 
     than in red light and the CED device gave a high reading. J.D. 
     Cook (Frimley, UK, seeing III-IV) made a skecth that showed the 
     bright spot extended on the east wall - again the CED reading was 
     high and a lot of detail was visible on the floor. A.C. Cook 
     (Frimley, UK, seeing III-IV) also noted remarkable detail and the 
     bright (as confirmed by CED) blob on the eastern rim. G. North 
     (Sussex, UK, seeing III-II) also confirmed the bright blob on the 
     eastern wall. Wooller found the north west wall was a dirty 
     yellow colour - though no colour was seen elsewhere in or outside 
     the crater. Mosely found the crater to be bright and his sketch 
     revealed the extension of the bright blob on the eastern rim and 
     again a great deal of interior detail. Amery (Reading, UK, seeing 
     III) found Aristarchus to be "a brilliant splash against dulled 
     background in violet filter, especially polarizing filter. CED + 
     polarizer readings high, but not as high as previous night". 
     Mobberley (Suffolk, UK, seeing III-IV) remarked that "spurious 
     colour a total mess around Aristarchus & nothing abnormal seen". 
     A photograph was taken at 20:50UT reveals the  bright blob and 
     entire detail. Peters (Kent, UK, seeingIII-II) observed  
     Aristarchus with a UV screen from 20:15-21:23UT and comented that 
     althogh being very bright, there was no variation between white 
     and UV. It was checked with a Moon Blink device and the radial 
     bands were  clearly seen in white light, < in blue. The Cameron 
     2008 catalog ID=233 and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=4.


2019-Aug-17 UT 20:35-22:09 Ill=95% Aristarchus observed by Bartlett on 1964-10-23

     Aristarchus 1964 Oct 23 UTC 02:35-02:45 Observed by Bartlett 
     (Baltimore, MD, USA, 3" refractor, 133 & 200x, S=3-5, T=4) "South floor 
     region granulated, 6 deg bright with very faint trace of pale yellow 
     color; rest of crater 8 deg bright." NASA catalog weight=4 (good), NASA 
     catalog ID #859.


2019-Aug-17 UT 21:02-22:31 Ill=95% Moon observed by Spinrad on 1962-9-16

     In 1962 Sep 16 at UT08:05 Spirad (Victoria, B.C., Canada, 48" 
     reflector) obtained a spectrum with a UV emission, in H & K lines 
     compared to Jupiter and Mars. II-AO plates, 6A/mm dispersion. 
     Fraunhofer lines much shallower than planetary ones. (whole
     Moon). The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=770 and weight=5. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=4.


2019-Aug-17 UT 21:05-21:35 Ill=95% Aristarchus observed by Brook_C on 2002-9-23

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

2019-Aug-22 UT 21:54-23:09 Ill=57% Tycho observed by Nibbering_J on 1994-1-4

     On 1994 Jan 04 at UT21:00 J. Nibbering (Rosendaal, Netherlands) 
     obtained a photograph that shows a large crescent of light centred on 
     Tycho crater, but includes also: Lilius, but not to Clavius. Cameron 
     suspects strongly that it was caused by camera lens flare. The Cameron 
     2006 catalog ID=471 and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Aug-23 UT 18:58-20:44 Ill=48% Plato observed by Morgan_P on 2009-6-16

     On 2009 Jun 16 at UT 03:20-03:40 P. Morgan (UK, 30.5cm reflector, x400, 
     seeing=6/10 and transparency=5/5) observed a large diffuse ashen-like 
     effect over the shadow filled floor of Plato. The effect was lighter 
     towards the south. Observer checked the effect with both left and right 
     eyes and it remained the same. Unusually no shadow spires from rim 
     moutain peaks were seen. A check for colour in the region effected 
     revealed none. As time progressed, terrestrial twilight encroached. A 
     sketch was made. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Aug-23 UT 19:30-20:29 Ill=48% Plato observed by Hobdell on 1981-10-21

     On 1981 Oct 21 at UT 11:35-11:48 B. Hobdell (St Petersberg, FL, USA, 
     10" reflector) found that the south peak of Plato on floor glowed white 
     at 11:35UT, then a milky shade spread all aorind Plato's floor 
     (previously completely shadow filled). The needle like shadows started 
     to be indistiguishable through the sunlight (dawn on Earth). The cloud 
     like feature was washed out by daylight at 11:48UT and conformed to the 
     "white area except a tail that reached the cetre of Plato" Spurious 
     colour was not seen. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=157 and weight=3.


2019-Aug-23 UT 21:34-22:34 Ill=47% Aristarchus observed by Louderback_D on 1981-10-21

     On 1981 Oct 21 at UT13:40-13:45 D. Louderback (South Bend, WA, USA, 
     10" reflector) observed a cloud on the north east quadrant of 
     Aristarchus crater, and also covered the bright spot on the east wall 
     (Cameron says that the east wall bright spot is Bartlett's "EWBS". 
     Louderback mentions that this TLP gave Aristarchus a diamond ring 
     effect. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=157 and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=2.

2019-Aug-24 UT 17:45-19:24 Ill=38% Aristarchus observed by Moseley_R on 1983-8-3 *

     Aristarchus 1983 Aug 03 UT 0305-0400 Observed by R,Moseley 
     (Coventry, UK, 6" reflector, seeing II, Transparency very good). 
     At the start of the observation, the NE wall and immediate 
     exterior was the brightest area visible (this is normal) and 
     seemed tinged with a faint blue/violet. At 03:45 the impression 
     of colour was fading in the brightening sky, but by 03:55 the 
     colour was back again with a faint violet/purple surrounding the 
     whole formation from E clockwise to N. The observer found it 
     difficult to decide whether it was really a colour on the Moon, 
     or an optical illusion. ALPO/BAA weight=1.
