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.
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= 1237 and weight=5.

(Fort says that till Apr. 1871 selenog recorded 1600 obs. of fluctuations of lights in Plato & had drawn 37 graphs of indiv. lights. These were deposited in the library of the Royal Astronomical Society by Birt)." The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=169 and the weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

On 1992 Jan 20/21 at UT 23:49-00:15 M.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, 3" Questar telescope, x130, seeing=III) managed to see the central craterlet in Plato and an unnamed one north west of Mons Pico. Cameron comments - "were this & No. 429 LTP or just good seeing?)." Note it is possible that she mean LTP 439 in which case it would refer to the previous nights TLP. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=439 and the weight=2. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.
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.
Mare Crisium 1965 Oct 11 UTC 10:10 Observed by McCord (Mt Wilson, CA, 100" reflector + spectrogram) "Line depth ratios a/b (H),, c/d (K) abnormally high compared with 23 other areas (including Aristarchus?)." NASA catalog weight=5 (very high). NASA catalog ID 902.

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.
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.
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.
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.

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.

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.

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.
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.
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.
