     On 1975 Apr 19 UT 21:09 P. Foley (Kent, UK), detected blue in 
     Plato on east. Fiton at UT20:45 found blue along the south wall 
     at the east (IAU?) end, which was very bright white. Blueness 
     extended towards the large landslip at the east of the formation. 
     Immediately north of the landslip, where the bright wall curves 
     first westwards, then again northwards, red could be faintly 
     detected, folloowed by a very faint blue. All other parts of the 
     formation were normal. Examination with a Moon blink device 
     revealed no colour blink. J-H Robinson also found blue, with red 
     on the west wall (exterior?). By 21:30UT Fitton found Plato to be 
     normal and so was Proclus, though he did find Epigenes (bright 
     cresecent of east wall only) slightly blue to the N.W and red 
     to the S.E. Mare Crisium was normal. Prominent spurious colour 
     seen on Venus, but it was low in the sky, with blue to the north 
     and red to the south. However J.H. Reading, managed to see the 
     north east floor blurred and slightly blue from 22:45-23:00UT.

2019-Dec-07 UT 11:31-13:18 Ill=79% Plato observed by Foley_PW on 1983-7-20

     On 1983 Jul 20 at UT 18:50-22:40 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK, 12"reflector, 
     seeing II-III) noted that the south wall of Plato at the 11 o'clock 
     position, at the location of a cleft, was fuzzy on either side of the 
     cleft. There was also a deep red colour along the cleft and the outside 
     wall. The colour had gone by 22:40 though. All other parts of the rim 
     of Plato were clear and distinct. M. Cook (Frimley, UK, seeing III) 
     sketched some obscurations at 22:03UT. At 22:08UT the red colour 
     reduced to a red line and vanished by 22:37. The south wall obscuration 
     varied in size and there was a possible obscuration at the 7 o'clock 
     position. J. Cook (Frimley, UK, seeing II-III) confirmed Foley's and 
     M.Cook's observations. Detail inside the crater was sharp, but colour 
     oppoiste to what is usual. Price (Camberley, UK, seeing IV-V) a few km 
     away had atmospheric ripples affecting his observations. At 21:36UT G. 
     North described the south wall as odd in appearance and the terrain 
     south of this was lacking in detail - this was odd because elsewhere 
     Plato was nice and sharp. At 21:45UT though the north section of the 
     crater was a hazy red. The cameron 206 catalog ID=224 and the weight=5. 
     The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     refractor, x155, S=6/10 and T=8/10) found that Bianchini G was not 
     visible, however Heraclides E, Helicon G, and indeed many other smaller 
     craters could be seen. There were two small mountains in the general 
     area of Bianchini G. and a mare ridge - all these were clearly seen.

     On 1967 May 20 at UT 21:05-21:20 Kelsey (Riverside, CA, 8" reflector, 
     x300) using an English Moonblink device found colour on the south west 
     part of the floor. Note that for the times given by Cameron, the Moon 
     was below the horizon from California - so possibly these are local

     On 1992 May 13 at UT 20:16-21:29 several observers reported a TLP in 
     Plato mostly concerning the visibility of floor craterlets, however 
     observer seeing varied from III-V. North (UK, 18.25" reflector) 
     reported "Colouration and floor craterlets very prominent. Seeing 
     Antoniadi V, Transparancy Poor.". Foley (Kent, UK, 12" reflector 
     seeing=III-IV) found the floor to be bright and in the better moment of 
     seeing detected floor craterlets. The WNW spot was misty some of the 
     time. Moore (Selsey, UK, 15" reflector, seeing V) had very poor seing 
     conditions. J.D. Cook and M.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, 3.6" reflector,

2019-Dec-08 UT 13:52-13:53 Ill=86% Bullialdus observed by Cook_AC on 1980-12-18

     On 1980 Dec 18 at UT20:46-23:58 A.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, 12" reflector, 
     40-250x, S=IV and transparency good) found the north west wall to be 
     brighter in red than in blue light, however the effect faded during 
     21:29-21:41UT and was gone by 22:40UT. There was however spurious 
     colour on the north west wall. M. Cook (Frimley, UK) found the central 
     peak to be both bright and diffuse, and brighter in red than in blue 
     light during 20:52-20:57UT, however at "22:53-23:58 c.p. very bright & 
     previous area decreased in size. No detail in white or red, just 
     visible in blue. Sketch (J. Cook) Orange out on NW rim & on NW side of

2019-Dec-08 UT 13:55-15:34 Ill=86% Plato observed by Foley_PW on 1983-7-21

     On 1983 Jul 21 at UT 21:02-23:18 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK, 12" reflector, 
     seeing=III) found the region around the cleft on the souther rim to be 
     out of focus - however atmospheric conditions were turbulent until 
     23:18UT. An unsual dark triangular region (long base against rim) was 
     seen to extend from the inner rim at 12 o'clock onto the floor for 13-
     16km. The crater had lots of detail elsewhere. M. Cook (Frimley, UK) 
     found the south east to soth west to be obscured again, but not as 
     badly as she had seen on the 20th July. J. Cook (Frimley, UK) found the 
     dark region had 2 white bands on the side and the south west wall was 
     blurred like it was on the 20th July - this time tough colour was not 
     present. There were also two light patches on the floor. Mosely 
     (Coventry, UK) observed the south wall at x120 and found the wall out 
     of focus at the 11 o'clock location. Through a yellow filter he saw a 
     "white mistiness: on the top of the southern rim and only the south 
     east cleft could be seen (no colour). By 22:40-23:00 the effect had 
     cleared up. No dark triangular patch was seen. When Marshall (Surrey, 
     UK) observed (22:30-03:00) nothing unsual was seen, though a sketch 
     provided shows a light patch on the floor located at 11 o'clock. All 
     observations, made by all observers had some atmospheric turbulence, 
     however trsnparency was good. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=225 and the

     On 1963 Nov 28 at UT 00:30-01:45 Barr, Greenacre, Hall and 
     Dungan (Flagstaff, AZ, USA, 24" refractor, and 69" reflector) 
     observed pink on the outer SW rim and a red spot towards the S of 
     this. A red spot was seen on the eastern side of Vallis Schroteri
     but only by Barr and Dungan. Other features checked for 
     atmospheric spectral dispersion and chromatic aberation - but the 
     colours in Aristarchus were not due to these. Smaller 12" scope 
     checked but no effects seen - presumably due to resolution and 
     image contrast issues? Pink on the SW rim may have been seen in a 
     69" scope by Boyce and Ford. ALPO/BAA weight=4.


2019-Dec-08 UT 16:18-17:27 Ill=87% Gassendi observed by Foley_PW on 1976-11-3

     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 
     patches on the floor between 20:54 and 21:31UT. A BAA Lunar Section

2019-Dec-08 UT 17:28-18:52 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.

2019-Dec-09 UT 11:32-12:43 Ill=92% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1975-2-23 *

     On 1975 Feb 23 at UT 18:00-00:24 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK, 12 inch 
     reflector, seeing Good), noticed that Aristarchus was a slate-grey 
     tinged with blue, and abnormally bright, fading at UT 18:47, and 
     decreased activity at UT20:45 after a cloudy period. Blue was seen on 
     the northern wall at UT19:00, but at 19:10 no colour, but instead an 
     obscuration. All normal from UT 21:04-21:46 according to Foley. At 
     UT19:00 G. Amery (Reading, UK, 10 inch reflector) noted shadowy grey 
     near the shadow under the south wall, indistinct small area, no colour. 
     At UT 20:00 activity increased. Colour negative fr. 150-300x till 21:10 
     (Hunt, Cambridge, UK, 2.5" refractor, seeing Poor-Very good). Negative 
     fr. 20:20-21:00 in bad seeing, and very good seeing at 200x all 
     negative (colour blink filters). From 23:45-00:20UT (Fitton, 
     Lancashire, UK, 8" reflector). Turner of Sussex, UK with an 8" 
     reflector, observed as well. (confirm. of activity earlier & neg. 
     later). Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1397 and weight=5. ALPO/BAA weight=3. 


2019-Dec-09 UT 12:06-13:56 Ill=92% Aristarchus observed by Robinson_JH on 1975-4-23

     On 1975 Apr 23 at UT 20:30 J-H Robinson (Teighmouth, Devon, UK, 260mm 
     reflector, x200). Observer was observing since 20:30UT, at 21:00UT 
     though they noticed red on the outside south wall of Aristarchus, a 
     hazy ill defined area that was larger in a red filter than in blue 
     filter, and outside east wall was bright in red. At 21:08UT the outside 
     west wall of Aristarchus no longer gave a colour blink reaction, and at 
     21:22UT the colour blink on the southern end of the crater ceased, but 
     the image blur remained (in both red and blue filters) despite the rest 
     of the crater being sharp in detail. Observations ceased at UT 21:35 
     because the blurring at the southern end seemed to be normal and this 
     was confirmed when checked with photographic atlases. Other craters 
     such as Proclus, Pickering, Tycho, Gassendi, Copernicus, Alphonsus, 
     Plato, Menelaus, Manilius, Linne and Theophilus, showed no colour blink 
     reactions. However Picard had a red bright blink from 20:30-20:40 and 
     the permanant blink on the N. Floor of Fracastorius was detectable. 
     Also Plato floor shadings were clearer in red than in blue - 
     intermittently. This is a BAA lunar section observation. No estimation 
     of transparency or seeing is given, nor any comment on whether spurious 
     colour was seen in any craters visually. ALPO/BAA weight=1. 


2019-Dec-09 UT 13:59-15:56 Ill=93% Gassendi observed by Moore_P on 1987-9-5

     Gassendi 1987 Sep 05 UT 20:25 Observed by Moore (Selsey, Sussex, UK, Antoniadi 
     III seeing, 12.5" reflector) "Intensely bright craterlet south of central 
     peak, surrounded by a luminous nimbus. Foley (Kent, UK, 12" reflector)onfirmed 
     the crater was highly luminous at 21:20, and surrounded by a blue halo that 
     had a darker blue band within it. This craterlet faded over time, and by 21:20 
     Moore considered that it was no longer prominent, by 21:22 Foley confirmed the 
     reduced brilliance, and by 21:30 Moore considered it to be perfectly normal. 
     Moore considers the nimbus effect to be normal. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=
     306 and weight=5. The ALPO/BAA catalog weight=3.

     telescope, x130, seeing III-IV, Moon 16 deg in altitude) observed a 
     dusky dark gray area just north of Herodotus and just south of the 
     Cobra Head. The interior shadow on the east of Herodotus by comparison 
     wad black and distinct. No change was seen when viewed through a 
     rotated polaroid filter. Apparently D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA) 
     was observing at the same time but had better observing conditions and 
     could see detail in this region, suggesting that it was not a TLP.

     (IAU?) internal wall, also blue observed in other small bright objects 
     against dark backgrounds. Lunar rotational axis and optical normal 
     related such that the normal runs NW-SE (IAU?) through these features. 
     Observer deduced that the coliur was obviously spurious and no blink 
     was seen in any feature. The blue disappeared as the lunar altitude

     around the northern edge of the lava sheet. Hill believes that it may 
     have been the same effect as seen by Madler (Germany), Barcroft (USA) 
     and Baum's (UK) 1951 observation. The colour was "ünmistakable" and 
     nothing to do with the atmospheric spurious colour. Other features were

     Greenland (Crawley, UK, 7x50 binooculars) thought that they 
     saw an "explosion" on the Moon (in the general region of 
     Aristarchus) for a fraction of a second, followed by a bright 
     spot in the same position (not an astronomer). After 
     discussions with others, decided it was a moment of transition 
     to greater intensity (better seeing?). Moore thinks it was

     lens with Wratten 25 ref filter) took 43 CCD images of the eclipse of 
     the Moon and on one of them at 04:40UT (exposure 0.3 sec) a relatively 
     bright spot appeared in the southern part of Mare Fecunditatis. The 
     spot looks sharper than the rest of the Moon and so might be a cosmic 
     ray? CCD images taken from Washington D.C. by A.C. Cook at this time, 
     do not show this spot, however exposures were at intervals of 0.25 sec 
     and so might have missed this spot if it happened during image readout.

     showed a grey column cutting across the central floor of the 
     crater from the west and then bisecting the eastern rim. All 
     detail inside is completely invisble. Some (but not all) of the 
     other images showed a more blurred view of this feature. It's 
     possible that this was a seeing ripple effect, or just the 
     natural appearance of shadings on the Moon at this time, however 
     for now this will be given an ALPO/BAA weight of 1.
