TLP Repeat Illumination/Libration and Earthshine predictions for: USA FM Palikir



Ill is percentage illumination of the Moon
*Indicates a repeat illumination and libration event to within +/- 1 deg for both
A non-* indicates just repeat illumination to within +/-0.5 deg


2020-Mar-01 UT 07:36-09:14 Ill=35% Apianus_D observed by Power_F on 2011-10-3

     Apianus D On 2011 Oct 03 UT 21:00-21:20 F. Power (Meath, 
     Ireland, 11" SCT) observed changing colours (blue, white, and 
     red) on the inner western rim of this crater. He changed 
     eyepieces and moved the scope around to look at dufferent parts 
     of the Moon, but nowhere else exhibited anything similar. As 
     another test he asked his wife to have a look without telling 
     her what he was seeing. She confirmed the same effect. 5 digital 
     camera images had been taken. Most of these were out of focus 
     and the first one was saturated, however one of them showed a 
     approximately 35 km long, by 11 km wide (at the north) lopsided 
     carrot shaped orange colour to the western rim of Apianus D. No 
     similar strong colour could be seen anywhere else on the image, 
     nor on the other 4 images. This TLP is being given an ALPO/BAA 
     weight of 1 as the Moon was low, but an image taken looks 
     interesting.


2020-Mar-01 UT 08:23-10:19 Ill=35% Censorinus observed by Holmes_D on 1988-11-15

     On 1988 Nov 15 UT 19:15 Holmes (Rockdale, UK, 215mm Newtonian) noticed 
     the Censorinus apron (just east of the crater and including the rim) 
     was fuzzy but the crater was clear - a sketch was provided. A BAA Lunar 
     Section observation.Cameron 2006 Catalog Extension ID=339 and weight=3.
     ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2020-Mar-01 UT 09:08-11:04 Ill=35% Torricelli_B observed by Braga_R on 2001-4-29

     On 2001 Apr 29 at UT 20:50 R. Braga (Italy) reported that without any 
     filter, the brightness of the east wall of Torricelli B was halfway 
     Torricelli C (faintest) and Moltke (brightest). By insering a Wratten 
     25 red filter though, the crater was slightly more evident. However 
     using a blue Wratten 39A filter, the crater vanished completely, whilst 
     Toricelli C remained. The ALPO/BAA weight=3. 


2020-Mar-01 UT 08:01-11:08 Ill=36% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

2020-Mar-02 UT 07:36-09:28 Ill=45% Ross_D observed by Harris on 1964-3-21

     Near Ross D (24E, 11N) 1964 Mar 21 UT 05:00-06:20 Observed by 
     Harris, Crow, Cross (Whittier, CA, USA) - negative confirmation 
     from Las Cruces. NASA catalog weight=0 (unreliable). NASA catalog 
     ID #805. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Mar-02 UT 07:36-09:02 Ill=45% Mons_Piton observed by Horne_P on 1983-3-21

     On 1983 Mar 21 at UT 21:05-22:00 P. Horne and J. Horne (Hertz, England, 
     UK, 11" reflector, x180 and x330) found that Mons Piton (totally 
     illuminated and brightest feature on the Moon - but no variability) was 
     brighter than Aristarchus (would have been if it had been in sunlight)
     and the mountain was contained within a circular illuminated patch. 
     "Brilliant white and no shadow. Size ~16km." There was no details 
     visible but the adjacent features had distinct shadows. Hutton was also 
     observing. Foley examined the photographs and believes that they are 
     inconclusive. D. Mansbridge was photographing the Moon at 19:30UT and 
     detects Piton but it is not bright. However in a photograph taken by D. 
     Mansbrdige and 20:30UT the mountain is much brighter than any other 
     sunward facing slopses on the northern part of the Moon's terminator. 
     R. Mosley had been observing earlier at 18:10-19:40 and although 
     finding the mountain to be shining briliantly beyond the terminator, he 
     also comments that this is normal. Cameron though has seen the 
     photographs taken and thinks it might be a real TLP. The Cameron 2006 
     catalog ID=208 and weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2020-Mar-02 UT 07:36-09:23 Ill=45% Censorinus observed by Cook_MC on 1988-11-16

     On 1988 Nov 16 at UT 18:20 M.C. Cook (Frimley, UK) observed that a ray 
     north east of censorinus appeared to be very diffuse and this did not 
     change during the observation. This was odd because proclus ray 
     material remained clear. The apron material of Censorinus was diffuse 
     E-W and the northern part was dull, but not fuzzy. The Cameron 2006 
     catalog ID=340 and the weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2020-Mar-02 UT 07:36-09:23 Ill=45% Torricelli_B observed by Cook_MC on 1988-11-16

     On 1988 Nov 16 at UT 18:20 M.C. Cook (Frimley, UK) observed that 
     Torricelli B changed in brightness (at times), but thinks that this was 
     due to atmospheric transparency. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=340 and 
     the weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Mar-02 UT 08:19-10:04 Ill=45% Torricelli_B observed by Mobberley_M on 1984-4-8

     On 1984 Apr 08 UT 19:50 Mobberley (14" reflector, x194, seeing 
     III-IV, Transparency Fair-Poor, Cockfield, UK) found that 
     Torricelli B's shadow was 1/2 the way across the floor, which 
     was normal, but that there was a very dar grey/brown shroud 
     around the carter, out to several radii. 
     The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Mar-02 UT 09:06-11:04 Ill=45% SE_Limb observed by Rohslberger_R on 1980-4-22

     On 1980 Apr 22 at UT20:30 R.Rohslberger (Hittfield, (near Hamburg) West 
     Germany, 8" reflector, x170 25mm occular used, 300mm focal length?) 
     took some photographs using projection. One of these recorded an 
     apparent "ejecta curtain". Cameron considered lens flare, but the other 
     photographs did not show this. If real then the plume was at a height 
     of ~40km and the ray was ~130km. Cameron concludes that this was an 
     impact photograph. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=90 and the weight=5. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2020-Mar-02 UT 09:23-11:19 Ill=45% Alphonsus observed by Lenham_AP on 1952-11-24

     Alphonsus 1952 Nov 24 UT 18:00 A.P. Lenham (Swindon, UK, 3-
     inch efractor x120) noted that the usual dark spots were not 
     visible, but floor ridges and craterlets were surperbly seen. 
     This may not be a TLP but has been given a TLP category as it 
     is a curious appearance and needs to be verified on a repeat 
     repeat illumination apeparance. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Mar-02 UT 10:08-11:53 Ill=45% W_Limb observed by Miles_H on 1987-1-7

     On 1987 Jan 07 at UT19:10-20:30 H.Miles of Cornwall, UK saw two bright 
     patches were seen in Earthshine at clock positions of 4 (this patch was 
     defined by the dark limb and the brightness faded inwards to the disk, 
     over a short distance. "Centred at 60 deg along the limb from the north 
     - a sketch showed approximately 10-15 deg along it") and 5:30 (this 
     second patch was smaller and not so bright as the first patch - it was 
     west of the north pole. P. Foley (Kent, UK) also detcted the patches 
     and said that one was not far from the sunrise terminator. 
     The Cameron 2006 Extension catalog gives this TLP an ID of 291 and a 
     weight of 2. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2020-Mar-02 UT 11:34-11:53 Ill=46% Alphonsus observed by Hopp on 1972-9-15

     Alphonsus 1972 Sep 15 UTC 18:48-18:56 Observed by Hopp (13.25E, 52.5N, 
     75mm refractor) "Diffuse white to blue area within the crater - not 
     sure" T=4, S=4. Ref: Hilbrecht & Kuveler Moon & Planets (1984) Vol 30, 
     pp53-61.


2020-Mar-02 UT 08:01-11:55 Ill=46% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

2020-Mar-03 UT 07:36-08:45 Ill=55% Plato observed by Schroter on 1789-7-30

     Plato 1789 Jul 30 UTC 21:00? Observed by Schroter (Lilienthal, Germany) 
     NASA Catalog Event #61, NASA Weight=2 (slightly low) Event described 
     as: "Soon after sunrise saw a kind of fermentation on the floor which 
     clearly resembled a kind of twilight, (due to some kind of aberration 
     unknown to the observer?)" For further details see reference: 
     Middlehurst, B.M., Burley, J.M., Moore, P.A. and Welther, B.L., 1968, 
     NASA TR R-277.


2020-Mar-03 UT 07:36-08:04 Ill=55% Moon observed by Cameron_W on 1969-11-18

     On 1969 Nov 18 at UT 00:30-02:30 W. Cameron (Greenbelt, MD, USA, 12" 
     reflector, x80 and x320) using a low power eyepiece, observed that 
     bright craters (but not all of them) "glittered like diamonds". These 
     craters were several on the terminator, Proclus, Censorinus, Manillius, 
     Menelaus and Dionysius. The glitter effect was on the west wall crest 
     -- like stars. Higher power revealed these areas to be bright but not 
     star-like (nor glittering). The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1212 and the 
     weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Mar-03 UT 07:36-07:50 Ill=55% Eratosthenes observed by Bartlett on 1976-8-4

     Eratosthenes 1976 Aug 04 UTC 02:07 Observed by Bartlett (Baltimore, MD, 
     USA, S=6, T=3, 4.5" reflector 40-450x) "faint spot of light 4 deg 
     bright seen in shadow on pos. of c.p. which is normally invis. At base 
     of inner NW wall a faint bluish radiance (gas?) was observed". NASA 
     catalog weight=4 (high). NASA catalog ID #1439.


2020-Mar-03 UT 07:52-09:48 Ill=55% Eratosthenes observed by Lenham_AP on 1952-11-25

     Eratosthenes 1952 Nov 25 UT 16:30 A.P. Lenham (Swindon, UK, 3-
     inch refractor x150, Definition Good) noted that there was 
     faint/slightly bright detail inside the interior shadow - 
     observer comments "presumably peaks of central mountains & W. 
     Wall ridge, but very faint" - however this is worth checking 
     out. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Mar-03 UT 08:37-10:33 Ill=55% Alphonsus observed by Lenham_AP on 1952-11-25

     Alphonsus 1952 Nov 25 UT 17:15 A.P. Lenham (Swindon, UK, 3-
     inch refractor) noted that the usual dark spots were not 
     visible. This may not be a TLP but has been given a TLP 
     category as it is a curious appearance and needs to be 
     verified on a repeat repeat illumination apeparance. ALPO/BAA 
     weight=1.


2020-Mar-03 UT 08:40-10:23 Ill=55% Eratosthenes observed by Abel_P on 2009-11-25

     On 2009 Nov 25 UT18:42-21:03 P.Abel, T.Little and C.North (Selsey, UK, 
     15" reflector, seeing II-III, transparency very good), all saw visually 
     a brownish tinge on the north west rim of Eratosthenes crater. P.Abel 
     made a sketch and T.Little took some high resolution CCD images, some 
     of which were through coloured filters. Checks were made for spurious 
     colour, but none was seen elsewhere on the Moon. The eyepiece was 
     changed but this made no difference. M.C.Cook (Mundesley) was observing 
     with a smaller scope at the same time, but saw no colour, however 
     observing conditions were worse. W.Leatherbarrow (Sheffield, UK) was 
     observing with a instrumenet mid way in size, and saw a brownish tinge 
     in the NW rim area, but saw a similar colour elsewhere and put this 
     down to spurious colour. Normally multiple observers seeing the same 
     thing would result in a weight of 4, however as this was only observers 
     at Selsey and some of the evidence contradicts, I am allocating an 
     ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2020-Mar-03 UT 09:04-11:01 Ill=55% Pallas observed by Stuart_L on 1953-11-15

     Pallas-Schroter 1953 Nov 13 UTC 02:00 Observed by L.Stuart (USA) 
     "Saw and photographed a bright spot on term. between these two 
     craters. Used Kodak 103aF3." NASA catalog weight=5 and catalog 
     ID #559. ALPO/BAA weight=5.


2020-Mar-03 UT 09:10-11:04 Ill=55% Eratosthenes observed by Galdies_C on 2012-8-25

     On 2012 Aug 25 UT1944-1952 Eratosthenes crater was imaged by C. 
     Galdies (Malta,Nexstar 8SE, Philips SPC 900NC camera). 4 
     Registaxed images were produced covering 19:45, 19:48, 19:49, 
     and 19:51. All but the first image, once first order spurious 
     colour had been removed, showed orange on the shaded terraces on 
     the western illuminated rim (similar to what Paul Abel and 
     others saw in 2009, albeit just confined to the NW rim), and the 
     interior floor shadow was slightly smaller in red light. However 
     orange colour was also seen on the eastern side of mountains to 
     the south of the crater, which infers that the spurios colour 
     removal did not fully acomplish its main goal. The effects were 
     not caused by the registax software as the orange colour is 
     visible on individual images. Although probably the colour is 
     not lunar in orgin, its explanation is not fully explaianed, 
     therfore an ALPO/BAA weight of 1 is used for now.


2020-Mar-03 UT 09:58-11:55 Ill=56% Aristarchus observed by Loocks on 1969-11-18

     On 1969 Nov 18 at UT 04:22 Loocks (Valparaiso, Chile, 12" reflector) 
     observed a flash of light of magnitude 12. Cameron speculates a meteor 
     and mentions the apollo 12 watch. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1214 and 
     weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Mar-03 UT 10:12-12:07 Ill=56% N_Pole observed by Harris on 1912-1-28

     North (?) (left) Cusp 1912 Jan 28 UT 00:00 (27th 20:00 L.T.) Observed 
     by Harris (Philadelphia? Pennsylvania?, naked eye?): Intensely black 
     curved object 400x240km, shaped like a "crow". Cameron 1978 weight=1 
     (very low) and ID=334. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Mar-03 UT 10:32-12:29 Ill=56% Eratosthenes observed by Longshaw_N on 2017-5-4

     Eratosthenes: On 2017 May 04 UT 21:50-22:10 N. Longshaw (BAA, 
     UK, 78mm APO refractor, x125 & x175, seeing II-III, 
     transparency Good). A brownish (orange) tint was seen on the 
     inner NW wall light terraces - this was immediately obvious 
     when first looking at the crater, but as time progressed the 
     effect became less bright. Other craters were checked for 
     similar coloured tints, but none were seen elsewhere on the 
     Moon. UAI observers in Italy (F. Taggogna & A. Tonon) had been 
     imaging the region in colour 17:57-21:47, but their images do 
     not show any colour on the inner NW rim terraces, the their 
     last image is 3 min before Longshaw saw the colour. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2020-Mar-03 UT 10:48-12:43 Ill=56% Eratosthenes observed by Hill_H on 1947-1-30

     Eratosthenes 1947 Jan 30 Mean Col. 16deg. Observed by Hill (UK) "Main 
     peak of massive central mountain group appeared to be in a shadowless 
     having regard to it's claimed height of 6,600 ft. The whole of the 
     floor to the west should have still been in darkness. Instead 
     immediately to the west was a dark (intensity 1.5-2) region extending 
     almost to the foot of the bright inner wall and very diffuse in 
     outline. The observation could not be followed through due to 
     increasing cloud, but on the following night all was normal."

     25cm reflector, x250 & x380, seeing good but with some cloud)
     The interior W. wall of this crater (on the lip) appeared 
     hazy - difficulkt to bring detail into focus. Neighbouring 
     craters/detail were sharp. Details in the crater wall interior 
     were starting to become visible as time went on, but it had 
     clouded over by 11:30. A Moon Blink was used but no colour was 
     detected. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2020-Mar-05 UT 08:33-10:29 Ill=76% Bullialdus observed by Cook_MC on 1979-6-5

     Bullialdus 1979 Jun 05 UT 22:00-23:00 Observed by Cook M.C. 
     and J.D. (Frimley, UK, 12-inch reflector, Seeing III-IV, good 
     transparency). MC Cook observed internittently over this time 
     period (due to cloud) and found the crater sharper in a blue 
     filter than in a red filter. No obscuration seen apart from a 
     darkish patch on the SW rim and spreading over onto an area 
     surrounding the rim, which she took to be shadow, though the 
     main shadow was along the east rim of the crater. JD. Cook 
     observed an orange colouration seen on eastern and the cleft 
     on the SW rim. Dark area seen on southern floor of crater, 
     south of central peak. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Mar-05 UT 10:11-12:08 Ill=76% Eimmart observed by Louderback_D on 1981-4-15

     On 1981 Apr 15 at UT06:27-06:40 D. Louderback (South Bend, WA, USA 
     using a 3" refractor x134 and S=4.5-5 and T=5-0) saw a bright spot on 
     the western wall of Eimmart (sketch supplied) have an unusual 
     brightening and shade. Variations occurred over 2-3 minute intervals. 
     Louderback commented that the spot looked like a flare with its apex 
     located at the crater wall and there was some blurring effect on the 
     spot - it decreased in size during the phenomenon. Seeing worsened 
     later. Apparently on the 18th and 19th of April everything was back to 
     normal. Cameron comments that there is no bright spot on the Moon at 
     this location. Lunar Orbiter IV plates 192-3.2 shows evening 
     conditions. Cameron 2006 Catalog Extension TLP ID=130 and weight=3.

     Gassendi 1971 Oct 29 UT 22:15-22:50 observed by J.Coates and 
     A.R. Neville (Burnley, UK, 6" reflectir, x192, slight fog, 
     seeing jumpy but good at times). An in ititial Moonblink 
     search proved negative. However white light observations by 
     Coates revealed a golden brown colour between the black 
     interior shadow and the base of the (bright W (IAU?) wall). 
     Neville confirmed its appearance as a coppery hue and saw the 
     colour for 5 minutes before it vanished at 22:55UT. ALPO/BAA

2020-Mar-05 UT 13:33-14:35 Ill=77% Gassendi observed by Sims_DM on 1977-5-28

     Gassendi 1977 May 28/29 UT 20:45-21:15 Observed by D. Sims 
     (Dawlish, Devon, UK) saw a hazy area on the south east floor 
     that was normal in red and white light but darker in blue. 
     This was partly confirmed by J-H Robinson (Devon, England, 10" 
     reflector) 21:24-23:12 who saw the south east floor of 
     Gassendi to have a loss of detail - but no colour seen, 
     although at 21:57-21:58 it was slightly brighter in red than 
     in blue briefly. P. Doherty (22:45-23:15) did not see anything 
     ususual. D. Jewitt (22:22-22:55) did not reveal anything

     M. Cook of Frimley, UK, noticed Torricelli B to have a blue 
     tinge inside and outside. No colour had been noticed earlier 
     on 19-21 Mar. Cameron reports also in her catalog that the halo 
     around Torricelli B had lost its brilliance as seen on 29th Mar.

     6" Cassegrain, x150 and x180, Seeing 3, high deck of Cirrus clouds) 
     "Torricelli B hard to make out in the videos taken, but images taken 
     through cloud. A check on the image received by the coordinator shows 
     that Torricelli B is in fact visible, but perhaps not very bright. A 
     later observational sequence of images by Raul Salvo (Montevideo, 
     Uraguay UT 03:15-03:23) showed similarly that Torricelli B was dark, 
     and there was some brightness variability although the 
     background setting on these was low" An ALPO report.


2020-Mar-06 UT 08:17-10:13 Ill=85% Bullialdus observed by Gray_R on 2006-12-2

     At 03:30UT observer noticed a hint of yellow colour
     on the floor of the crater and by 03:57UT the south
     east and central parts of the floor and the circular
     feature on the south west floor had turned a deep
     yellow colour. The rest of the crater remained colourless.
     Other craters also remained colourless. By 04:05UT the colour
     was fading and by 04:15UT it was gone. Maurice Collins
     in New Zealand took some low resolution colour images about
     4 hours later but these failed to show any yellow colour.
     Zac Pujic obtained colour images at a different time of
     natural surface colour on the Moon and finds that Bullialdus
     does actually have a natural yellow cast to most of the floor.
     However this does not explain the variability in colour strength
     seen by Robin Gray. ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2020-Mar-06 UT 08:51-09:13 Ill=85% Mersenius_C observed by Ward_G on 2005-11-13

     G. Ward (a lunar observer for 15 years) observed an area just south 
     west of Mersenius C to be blurred and in a greenish cloud. The green 
     colour was more like that of dead grass than one gets from a neon bulb.
     The effect was seen from 04:50-04:57UT, but could have been going on 
     before it was first noted at 04:50-UT. Seeing was 6-7/10 4" Refractor 
     (2 element). refractor had been used hundreds of hours before (over a 
     10 year period) with no similar colour was seen. The observer checked 
     other areas but did not see any similar effects. They also rotated and 
     changed eyepieces, but this made no difference to the TLP. The TLP site 
     seen was picked up on an image taken earlier at 04:47UT by W. Bailley,
     from Sewell, NJ, USA. Unfortunately the area concerned, a mountain on 
     the image, was saturated and so we cannot tell if a colour was present 
     there and the seeing was poor.


2020-Mar-06 UT 09:02-10:58 Ill=85% Timocharis observed by Firsoff on 1954-10-8

2020-Mar-06 UT 09:03-10:59 Ill=85% Aristarchus observed by Grego_P on 1987-1-11

     On 1987 Jan 11 at UT 18:15-23:00 P. Grego (Birmingham, UK, 6" 
     reflector, seeing=III) sketched Aristarchus crater and saw two luminous 
     circular patches on the exterior west wall - these were less bright 
     than the inner wall but brighter than the outer wall. The Cameron 1978 
     catalog ID=292 and weight=5.


2020-Mar-06 UT 09:03-10:59 Ill=85% Plato observed by Moore_P on 1987-1-11

     On 1987 Jan 11 at UT P. Moore (Sussex, UK) found the the floor of Plato 
     was much more drk than the adjacent Mare Imbrium. Furthemore there was 
     a blurring of detail over the northeast wall and onto the nearby floor. 
     detail elsewhere in the crater was OK. By 23:00UT there was less lack 
     of detail effects. M. Cook (Frimley, UK) at 21:55UT noted the obscured 
     area but decided that it was narrower than the same effect one month 
     ago and suspected that she may have been observing towards the end of 
     this TLP. The effect gradually dimmed between 21:55 and 22:45UT. Other 
     craters were normal. G. North was affected by poor seeing conditions. 
     Davies detected a slight obscurtion on the north east corner - it was a 
     misty gray feature at x200. The Cameron 2006 catalog extension ID was 
     292 and the weight was 5. Tha ALPO/BAA weight was 4.

     England, 18" reflector) "I was examining the Cobra Head of the Schroter 
     Valley, when I noticed what seemed to be a diffuseed patch of thin 
     smoke or vapour, apparently originating from the valley on the E. Side 
     where the landslip is, and spread over the edge on to the plain for a 
     short distance. Every detail of the edge of the valley was perfectly 
     clear and distinct except where this patch occurred, but there the 
     definition was poor and very blurred" NASA catalog

     (Montevideo, Uraguay UT 03:15-03:23) showed that Torricelli B 
     was dark, and there was some brightness variability although the 
     background setting on these images was low and seeing could 
     account for the brightness variation? An ALPO report.


2020-Mar-06 UT 10:06-12:02 Ill=85% Gassendi observed by Darling_D on 1990-10-1

     On 1990 Oct 1st at 00:44-01:24UT D Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA) 
     observed that Gassendi still had a blink effect when viewed through 
     blue (Wratten 38A) and red (Wratten 25A) filters. No effect was seen on 
     Aristarchus. Gassendi was brighter in the red filter and this was 
     confirmed by Weier. Sketches were made and brightness measurements 
     taken. Both observers used a 12.5" reflector x159. At 01:00UT the NW 
     wall was 7.5, the SW wall 8.0, the S. wall 7.5, the floor 6.0, the

     misty and also noted no detail on the floor. Amery though noted that 
     all parts of the floor were sharp although some darkening was visible 
     in the north west and a hint of obscurtion. The east wall though was 
     quite sharp. Mosely could see the central craterlet but from 8-6

2020-Mar-09 UT 08:46-09:57 Ill=100% Aristarchus observed by Darling_D on 1990-12-2

     F. Graham took some photos of the Cobras Head and found a blue cloud 
     about 50 km in diameter and scattering light - Cameron says that 
     this indicates high density. Darling found the Cobra's Head obscure and 
     variable "clear and bright to diffused". Cameron was alerted observed 
     (02:40UT) variations with periods of approximately 30 seconds, and 
     thought that she could see a red tinge on the east rim of Aristarchus - 
     checks elsewhere found no other colours. Darling found that a blue 
     filter enhanced the effect and a red filter made it disappear. There 
     was a blink at 02:55UT but no blink in the Cobra's Head, which looked 
     fuzzy and lacking in detail. The effect was confirmed by Weier, who 
     also saw two dark spots in the Cobra Head in blue but not in red light. 
     The brightness of the Cobras Head was 6.0, Herodotus floor 5.5, NW wall 
     7.5, South wall, 7.0, Aristarchus south wall 9.0, west wall 9.0, south 
     wall 7.0, East wall 8.0, and the central peak 10.0. Observer details

     Louderback, of South Bend, WA, USA observed a bright area over
     Mons Anguis and Eimmart - it resembled a comet and had a bluish 
     colour and varied in brightness. The colour was confirmed as it 
     was not seen in a red filter but could be seen in blue and white 
     light. Other features were checked but did not show anything 
     similar although a violet glare was suspected in the blue filter. A
     sketch was made. Observer made Eimmart 8 in brightness at 07:30UT.
     Noted that the area around Eimmart appeared opaque at times and less so
     at other times. At 08:52UT the phenomenon was seen again. On May 2nd 
     a bright spot was still seen in the region but it was not changing 
     dimensions. During the observation on Apr 30th the atmospheric
     transparency was excellent. A 2.5" refractor was used. Reference:
     Personal communication from Louderback to Cameron on 1980 Jul 16th.

2020-Mar-10 UT 09:43-11:08 Ill=99% Torricelli_B observed by Mobberley_M on 1985-12-27

     Mobberley noticed that Torricelli B was bright and had an even brighter 
     spot on the inner north wall. The observation was made from UT19:45-
     21:40 using visual and video techniques. There was also a bright region 
     NNE of Toricelli B, that was noticed. Foley examined the video and 
     found that the crater faded in brightness over time and also the bright 
     area to the NNE was not as bright on video as had been seen visually. 
     Foley speculates that because the CCD camera was sesnitive to the near 
     IR that maybe the spot was blue?. Foley observed from 21:12-21:21UT and 
     also saw the bright spot on the inner north wall - but saw a blue halo 
     around the crater. Response in blue filter, darkening over whole 
     region. Brightness measures with a crater extinction device (CED) 
     indicated that the crater was 80-85% the brightness of Censorinus. 
     There was a bright area NNE of the region. M. Cook observed 22:10-
     22:16UT (15cm reflector and seeing III-IV) and also saw that the crater 
     was very bright indeed with a spot NNE of the region (same position as 
     28/28 1985 observation) - suspected that the crater might have been 
     brighter than Censorinus, but judgement effected by seeing. In a blue 
     filter the crater dulled leaving the bright spot prominent (but only 
     during a good moment of seeing) - therefore had some suspicion of 
     seeing effects. At 01:00-01:04UT M. Cook used a 12" reflector on the 
     area, but the seeing was even worse - but did manage a check of the 
     brightness of Torricelli B to Censorinus and now made it one quarter of 
     that of Censorinus and no sign of the crater dimming in the blue as had 
     been seen earlier in the 6" refletor. A. Cook (Frimley, seeing V) at 
     21:15UT (Dec 27) thought that Torricelli B looked normal and saw no 
     colour. At Dec 28 at UT 00:02-00:25 A. Cook obtained some CCD images 
     through red+IR (Wratten 25) and IR (Wratten 87) but found no colour 
     differences, though there was a very slight hint that a brightness fade 
     may have occurred between those two observing times. Note that this
     report does not have an entry in the Cameron 2006 Extension Catalog.

     On 1984 Feb 17 at 19:45-22:20UT P. Madej noticed colour in Aristarchus 
     and telephoned the BAA Lunar Secton TLP network. Mosely at 21:15UT 
     observed that Aristarchus was both bright and fuzzy - there was some 
     spurios color (red on south and blue on the north) but this was 
     replaced by violet. By 21:30UT (transparency=fair) the centre of the 
     crater was bluish and the west wall creamy white. the north and south 
     walls were brilliant white. By 22:00-22:30 UT the seeing had improved 
     and the crater looked unusual - now the centre was violet and the west 
     wall duller, off-white. By 05:35UT the crater was difficult to define 
     according to Cook - 4 bands could be seen under II seeing and the north 
     rim was fuzzy and less bright than the east wall (this was hazy). P. 
     Moore observed that the crater was normal at 04:00UT. Cameron 2006

2020-Mar-10 UT 13:31-15:22 Ill=99% 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.

     On 1985 Dec 29th at UT 23:23-23:58, M. Mobberley (Bury St. Edmunds, 
     Suffolk, UK, seeing II-III) made a video scan of the Moon. P.W. Foley 
     examined the tape and noted something that Mobberley had not seen 
     visually. Two scans of Totticelli B had taken place, one at 23:23 and 
     the other at 23:58UT. In the first a brilliant point appeared briefly, 
     on the western rim, positioned at 3o'clock. In the second video 
     sequence this brilliant spot was present continuously and wandered 
     along the rim. It was possible to monitor frequency of turbulence 
     present, this apparent movement did not ppear to conform, although 
     judgement here was extremelydifficult as the feature was at absolute 
     point of resolution, a little better than 0.5 mile. Also considered was 
     the implication of the equipment effect, this did not seem to fit 
     either as other nerby craters in the same configuration, 30% shadow
