2019-Dec-01 UT 04:49-05:16 Ill=22% Aristarchus observed by Emanuel on 1965-7-3

     In 1965 Jul 03 at UT 04:25-05:34 Emanuel (West Covina, CA, USA, 4.5" 
     reflector) observed 4th magnitude star-like flashes and pulsations 
     coming from Aristarchus. Cameron says this confirmed and that the date 
     in MBMW is 7/2/65 which is local time = 3rd UT. The Cameron 1978 
     catalog ID=882 and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2019-Dec-01 UT 05:55-07:20 Ill=22% Aristarchus observed by Fryback_D on 1988-4-21

     On 1988 Apr 21 at UT 01:28-04:00 D. Fryback (Madison, WI, USA) took a 
     series of photographs - Aristarchus was a luminous patch and in one 
     photograph a red spot (Cameron suspects marks on the film). is seen 
     near Aristarchus. Strangely though when looking through the telescope, 
     the crater was not excessively bright. D. Spain (Fairdale, KY, USA, 
     3.5" reflector?, x60) observed a narrow white streak of mag 5-6 of 
     duration 0.5 sec that covered 160-320km near the centre of the Moon at 
     01:53UT. A similar streak happened but the direction was different. 
     Next 2 small red flashes were seen at 02:00 and 02:01UT of magnitude 7 
     (<1sec) in the vicinity of Aristarchus. The cameron 2006 catalog ID=327 
     and the weight=1.

     northern cusp was elongated into Earthshine, 4.6 days after New Moon. 
     One day before this the cusps appeared nromal to him. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=1.


2019-Dec-01 UT 06:20-07:20 Ill=22% Moon observed by Spain_D on 1988-4-21

     On 1988 Apr 21 at UT 01:53 D. Spain (Fairdale, KY, USA, 3.5" 
     reflector?, x60) observed a narrow white streak of mag 5-6 of duration 
     0.5 sec that covered 160-320km near the centre of the Moon at 01:53UT. 
     A similar streak happened again but the direction was different. Next 2 
     small red flashes were seen at 02:00 and 02:01UT of magnitude 7 (<1sec) 
     in the vicinity of Aristarchus. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=327 and the 
     weight=1.

2019-Dec-02 UT 04:49-04:51 Ill=30% Aristarchus observed by Gridley on 1965-7-4

     In 1965 Jul 04 at UT 03:53-05:59 Gridley, Welch (West Covina, CA, USA, 
     4.5" and 8" reflector, seeing=excellent), Albert (CA, 8" reflector, 
     x375) and Emanuel (8" reflector) observed star-like flashes in 
     Aristarchus crater. Cameron says this confirmed and that the date 
     in MBMW is 7/3/65 which is local time = 4th UT also but is in error due 
     to misreading of handwriting. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=883 and 
     weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2019-Dec-02 UT 05:23-06:40 Ill=30% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1985-5-24

     On 1985 May 24 at UT 21:01-22:40 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK, 12" reflector) 
     observed that Aristarchus was very bright (varied) and had a strong 
     (transient) red/rose colour and the crater floor was glowing. Detail 
     was visible. Mobberley (Suffolk, UK) also found the floor of the crater 
     to be "glowing". Photographs of Earthshine excellent. The Cameron 2006 
     catalog ID=274 and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2019-Dec-02 UT 07:33-08:14 Ill=31% Grimaldi observed by ASTRONET on 1966-9-20

     On 1966 Sep 20 at UT 03:22 Three Astronet observers (Phoenix, AZ, and 
     Los Angeles, CA, USA) (independently?) reported flashes in Grimaldi 
     crater. One observer was in Phoenix AZ, and another in Losa Angeles, 
     CA, so probably not due to the atmosphere. Cameron comments that the 
     astronaut Schmidt on Apollo 17 saw a flash in it while orbiting the 
     Moon. the Cameron 1978 catalog ID=977 and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=4.

     On 1992 Dec 29 at UT 17:42-17:54 A. Dollfus (Meudon, France, 1m 
     aperture telescope used) detected evidence for a dust cloud using CCD 
     polarimetry. The ALPO/BAA weight=5.


2019-Dec-02 UT 08:04-08:14 Ill=31% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1975-12-8

     On 1975 Dec 08 at UT18:00-20:40 P.W. Foley (Wilmington, Kent, 
     UK, 12" reflector, x60-x624, seeing II, slight mist) found 
     Aristarchus to be less well visible than features such as: 
     Grimaldi, Reiner, Darwin/Byrgius, Kepler, Plato and Sinus 
     Iridum. Earthshine was exceptionally good tonight and was 
     orange/red in colour. Photographs were taken and these confirmed 
     the apparent dullness of Aristarchus. ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2019-Dec-02 UT 05:16-08:16 Ill=31% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

2019-Dec-03 UT 04:49-06:34 Ill=40% Censorinus observed by Foley_PW on 1984-7-4

     On 1984 Jul 04 UT 22:08-23:09 Foley (12" reflector, Kent, UK) found 
     that Censorinus gave a low brightness CED reading of 58%, despite all 
     other measured points on the Moon as being normal. M. Cook (Frimley, 
     UK) found Censorinus to be extremely dull compared to Proclus. J.D. 
     Cook (Frimley, UK) found Censorinus to be quite dull, barely above 
     background levels. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=246 and the weight=4. 
     The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2019-Dec-03 UT 04:49-06:34 Ill=40% Theophilus observed by Richardson on 1984-7-4

     On 1984 Jul 04 at UT 22:05-23:09 Richardson (Swinton, Yorkshire, UK, 
     seeing=VE) found that a peak west of Theophilus crater had a deep blue 
     colour, and this was strange because no colour was seen elsewhere on 
     the Moon. Foley (Kent, UK, 12" reflector), once alerted, found a dome 
     east of Kant? to be blue, and likewise no colour was seen elsewhere on 
     the Moon. Cameron 2006 catalog ID=246 and the weight=4. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=3.


2019-Dec-03 UT 04:49-06:34 Ill=40% Torricelli_B observed by Foley_PW on 1984-7-4

     On 1984 Jul 04 UT 22:08-23:09 Foley (12" reflector, Kent, UK) found 
     that Torricelli B was a much lower brightness than was expected and 
     this remained the case for the rest of the lunation. The Cameron 2006 
     catalog ID=246 and the weight=4. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Dec-03 UT 06:28-07:26 Ill=40% Aristarchus observed by d_Adhuda on 1891-11-7

     On 1891 Nov 07 at UT=19:00 d'Adjuda of Lisbon, Portugal (seeing fair)

     distinct luminous point in the dark. Cameron 1978 catalog ID=275 and 
     weight=3. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Dec-03 UT 06:41-08:29 Ill=40% Censorinus observed by Marshall_KP on 1984-7-5

     On 1984 Jul 05 at UT 00:00-01:25 Marshall (Medelin, Columbia, 
     seeing=II) observed that Censorinus was much less bright than Proclus 
     (confirmed by CED readings). Cameron 2006 catalog ID=247 and weight=3. 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Dec-03 UT 06:41-08:30 Ill=40% Proclus observed by Marshall on 1984-7-5

     On 1984 Jul 05 at UT 00:00-01:25 Marshall (Medelin, Columbia) found 
     Proclus to be much brighter than Censorinus (which of the two was 
     abnormal is a question) - though he thought that Censorinus looked 
     dull. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=247 and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=1.


2019-Dec-03 UT 07:31-09:06 Ill=40% Langrenus observed by Dollfus_A on 1992-12-30

     On 1992 Dec 30 at UT 17:36 A. Dollfus (Meudon, France, 1m aperture

2019-Dec-04 UT 04:49-05:49 Ill=49% Proclus observed by Kern on 1972-6-18

     Proclus 1972 Jun 18 UTC 20:50-21:15 Observed by Kern (8.75E, 48.25N, 
     60mm refractor) "Yellow to white bright pattern at the NW wall, visible 
     only occasionally" S=4, T=3 Ref: Hilbrecht & Kuveler Moon & Planets

2019-Dec-04 UT 04:49-05:39 Ill=49% Censorinus observed by Cook_AC on 1984-7-5

     Censorinus 1984 Jul 05 UT 21:05-21:25 Observed by Cook (24" reflector 
     with line scan photodiode array at Mill Hill observatory, London) "Two 
     line scan photodiode array images were taken which used the motion of 
     the Moon to build up an image. The first image at 21:25UT did not 
     include all of Censorinus, but the part that it did include was not 
     very bright. The 21:25UT image did include all of Censorinus and the 
     crater was bright, including the part that was just visible in the 
     previous image. Possibly the seeing was worse at 21:05? and this could 
     explain the brightness descrepency, but it is worth checking again by 
     taking images at the same illumination conditions" BAA Lunar Section 
     report. At 21:17 M. Cook (Frimley, UK) found Proclus to be brighter 
     than Censorinus (more so than the previous night) and obtained variable 
     readings for Censorinus. Cameron 2006 catalog ID=247 and weight=3. 
     ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2019-Dec-04 UT 04:54-06:48 Ill=49% Cassini observed by Knopp on 1885-2-21

     Knopp of Paysandu, Uruguay on 1885 Feb 21 at 23:00-23:30? UT saw red 
     patches in the crater. Reddish smoke or mist. The observer says several 
     others had seen a star like point there that night. Cameron's 1978 
     catalog ID=348 and weight=4. ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2019-Dec-04 UT 05:16-06:50 Ill=49% Rimae_Triesnecker observed by Gordeenko on 1912-5-23

     Triesnecker Rille 1912 May 23 UT 18:00? Observed by Gordeenko

2019-Dec-04 UT 07:51-09:48 Ill=50% Messier observed by no on 1968-5-5

     Messier 1968 May 05 UT 01:35-03:35 Observed by Delano (USA).
     No oclour noticed with Moon blink device, but Messier A's W. 
     wall did brighten slightly over the 2 hours of observations 
     compared to Messier's W wall. The ffect was less marked in 
     the 2nd hour. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Dec-04 UT 07:53-08:16 Ill=50% Promontorium_Agassiz observed by Green_J on 1991-5-21

     On 1991 May 21 at UT05:30-06:15 J. Green (Orangevale, CA, USA, 11" 
     reflector) photgrapphed a broad bright band stretching east and north 
     of Cassini crater in 3 exposures taken 10 minutes apart. This 
     photographic sequence shows a gradual widening towards Cassini and by 
     the 3rd exposure the band is touching (and then obscuring) Cassini. A 
     "fan" was visible in the north east and WSW directions, later this was 
     seen as rays and this was even seen in the view finder of the camera. 
     Cameron comments that this might be lens flare but suspects that it 
     would not have been seen in the view finder. The Cameron 2006 catalog 
     ID=427 and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

2019-Dec-05 UT 04:50-05:43 Ill=59% Mons_Pico observed by Turner_S on 1979-9-29

     On 1979 Sep 29 at UT10:00-12:00 S. Turner (Maryborough, Australia) 
     observed a strong beacon like flash in white light that moved back and 
     forth in the east wall of Plato (very bright) and Mons Pico. tried 
     changing eyepiece and the field of view, but this wasn't the cause of 
     the effect. A check at 11:07UT did not show the effect, but it was back 
     again by 11:18UT being more pronounced at Mons Pico than the east wall 
     of Plato. SSW of Mons Pico was also blinking slightly. At 11:32 the 
     blinking effect was irregular 5-10 sec and this continued until 
     12:00UT. Cameron 2006 catalog ID=71 and weight=0 but she suggests 
     atmospheric scintillation as a cause. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2019-Dec-05 UT 05:21-07:18 Ill=59% Mare_Frigoris observed by Pratt_H on 1871-11-20

     On 1871 Nov 20 at UT 17:30-19:30 H. Pratt (UK) saw one of the most 
     spectacular TLP obscurations that he had ever seen in Mare Frigoras. He 
     observed a kind of haze around the north west (NE?) slopes of Plato. 
     This effect was not seen elsewhere and all objects in Mare Frigoris 
     were indistinct or veiled. By 18:30 the effect was modified and by 
     19:30 very little trace was seen. Ref. from Corliss.

     reflector, x250, seeing=fair and transparency=3.5). Shading 
     usually visible west of it was not seen. Cameon comments that 
     the albedo must have been at 5, where normally it is 4.5 and the 
     nearby plain is 5). Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1322 and weight=2.

2019-Dec-05 UT 08:54-09:08 Ill=60% Theophilus observed by Cook_JD on 1978-11-8

     Theophilus 1978 Nov 08 UT 20:49-22:00 Observed by J.D. Cook 
     (Frimley, 12" reflector, 6mm Ortho eyepiece, seeing III-IV) 
     Orange discolouration seen on ESE crater floor. Moon blink 
     tried, but no blink detected. By 21:10 the effect had lessened, 
     but was still orange. By 21:50-21:58 the effect was smaller and 
     perhaps more on the SE of the floor. Colour confirmed by Foley. 
     Fitton may also have been observing. At 22:00 A.C. Cook observed 
     and commented that a darkish, perhaps brown-orange colour seen - 
     but suspected it was probably spurious colour - but by now the 
     seeing was V. J.H. Robinson, whilst doing a Moon Blink sweep of 
     several features, including Theophilus, had not noticed anything 
     unusual 18:50-19:10. By 22:30-22:35UT, he still could not detect 
     a blink, but noticed intermittent darkining on the shaded area 
     on the E. floor, but seeing was now IV. The darkening was more 
     noticeable in blue than red light. BAA Lunar Section

2019-Dec-07 UT 11:31-12:18 Ill=78% 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.

     On 1976 Apr 10 at 21:15-21:49UT S.Spencer (60mm refractor x60, seeing 
     quite good) noticed a faint red glow at the south west wall of Gassendi 
     covering a span of about 35 deg arc. The observer had some doubts about 
     this because they were using a small telescope, but thought that they 
     ought to report it, just in case. A BAA Lunar Section report. ALPO/BAA

2019-Dec-08 UT 04:52-06:48 Ill=84% Aristarchus observed by Moore_P on 1985-5-30

     On 1985 May 30 at UT 20:10-23:54 P.Moore (Selsey, UK, 15" reflector) 
     and at the same time Doherty (Sussex, UK, 15" reflector) observed a 
     strangely bright and pink/red north rim of Aristarchus crater during 
     UT20:20 and 20:36UT. The effect reduced between ~20:39 and 20:44UT. 
     M.C. Cook (Frimley, UK) found the northern wall to have a red/purple 
     colour but the effect vanished after 50 minutes. Cook also saw a "V"-
     like notch in the NW crater shadow and this appeared to be bigger than 
     normal. G. North (Sussex, UK) saw a tinge of pink colour on the 
     northern rim and a bit later a "ruby red" colour on the north-west wall 
     - again this effect lasted 50 minutes. Moseley verified the colour. 
     Finally M. Hather (Yorkshire, UK) suspected the north wall of 
     Aristarchus to be blue in colour. Cameron suspects that this TLP is not 
     spurious colour because it is in the wrong place. The Cameron 2006

2019-Dec-09 UT 11:32-12:09 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 12:06-13:54 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.

     On 1985 Sep 28 UTC 20:54-23:52 P.W. Foley (Suffolk, UK) found (actually 
     before 20:54 UT) brightness variance in Torricelli B. J.D. Cook 
     (Frimley, UK) observed a brief blue coloured patch somewhere in the 
     Torricelli B region, but could not pin it down precisely. At 22:50UT 
     M.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, 30cm reflector, seeing III - occasionally V, 
     transparency moderate to good) Found the crater to have an elongated 
     appearance (in SSW-NNE direction) in white light, similar to the 
     previous night. A bright elongated spot was seen on the NNE floor, 
     close to where the wall should be. Not able to define the rim. There 
     was a very dark surrounding area to the crater, similar to what it was 
     on the previous night (roughly 1/4 brightness of Censorinus). 23:04UT 
     brighter in yellow, then red, then blue. At 23:10 it was seen that blue 
     filter dulled the crater - this was odd because both Censorinus and 
     Proclus were brighter in blue, which is what he would normally expect. 
     At23:15 UT Censorinus was brighter in blue, then yellow then red 
     filters and some orange spurious colour seen to the south of 
     Censorinus. At 23:23UT no spurious colour seen on Proclus or 
     Censorinus. 23:46UT Torricelli B elongated as before, but a very faint 
     ray might have been seen to the south west of the rim. This report is 
     not in the 2006 Cameron catalog. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     On 2000 Jan 21 UT04:40 G. Emersen (Golden, CO, USA, 30cm focal length 
     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.

     four new features that he had not seen before in Earthsine in 
     comparison with what he saw on 16 Jul 1979, this time in the southern 
     part of the Moon. pin-point flashes were seen within these bluish 
     areas. Each time a flash occurred the gas clouds brightened (sometimes

     Found Briggs A to be brownish in colour at x64, however the 
     colour vanished at 06:55 when x104 was used. Switching back to 
     x64 the colour was still there but fainter. The colour fade may 
     have been due to day light glare encroaching? Could not see this 
     effect anywhere else on the Moon but did detect what he regarded 
     as a permanent coloured spot (yellow) between Cruger and 
     Grimaldi. ALPO/BAA weight=1.
