2018-Jun-04 UT 10:26-11:00 Ill=72% Cabeus observed by LCROSS on 2009-10-9

     On 2009 Oct 09 UT11:00-11:04 NASA's LCROSS upper centaur stage, 
     followed 4 min later by the observation spacecraft, is due to impact 
     into a the crater Cabeus in the hope of kicking up some dust and 
     possible frozen volatiles. Note that this description is intended for 
     observers on the date of impact and it is doubtful that any new
     science could be achieved by re-observing the same area months
     after the impact. If you are observing on the date of impact, then 
     please observe around 11:00-11:04UT and ignore the predicted times in 
     the headings. However this report is included as techniqcally
     if something is seen it is a TLP, albeit man-made! For those observing 
     on the date in question here are a few observing tips to maximize 
     the science of your observations: (1) If you are imaging, then please 
     try to obtain images before the impact because you can then subtract 
     these from images taken during the impact and hence show up faint 
     changes that you might normally miss. (2) If you have a spare scope and 
     camera,use this to observe through filters such as UBVR or I, or if you
     have narrow band interference filters, try observing in
     say Hydrogen Alpha, Methane, OH, or indeed any volatile that you 
     might expect to see in a comet (the main source of water at the poles).
     (3) Please try checking the area long after the impact, just in
     case other effects might trigger a TLP. (4) Please go to some trouble 
     to ensure accurate timings- these will be essential in order to 
     understand the sequence of events - assuming any are seen. Timings can 
     be obtained using a short wave radio or via a GPS. Note that you should 
     always use UT or UTC. (5) Please send any observations that you make 
     into the upload section of the LCROSS campaign observers web site. If 
     you belong to an astronomical society e.g. BAA or ALPO, then do please 
     send copies of your observations to the Lunar Sections of your society 
     or club. (6) Finally this desription will be updated a day or two after 
     the planned impact.

     Petersberg, Florida, 6cm  refractor and 20cm reflector. x130. Seeing 
     Antoniadi I) "A dark discolouration was seen on the east floor, 
     adjacent to the central peak and the dark area on the west floor 
     directly south of the prominent dark area. Hobdell thinks it was a 
     small crater on a secondary rill with slight venting discolooration, 
     seen in Orbiter pictures. A sketch was made and the BAA alerted. The 
     sketch matches the dark spots in Alphonsus (normal aspects?)" cameron 
     comments that the sketch looks like the aspect in the Lick composite 
     photos. Foley comments that dark at this lunar age is not normal. A UK

     ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Jun-18 UT 00:04-01:04 Ill=23% Aristarchus observed by Livesey_R on 1966-4-24

     On 1966 Apr 24 at 21:30UT R.Livsey (Scotland, 6" reflector at x275) 
     observed that Aristarchus was "fluorescent" in Earthshine. It is 
     uncertain whether the description of "fluorescent" should be involve 
     this observation being categorized as a TLP, however just for safety it 
     will be assigned an ALPO/BAA weight=1. This was a BAA Lunar Section 
     report.


2018-Jun-18 UT 00:09-01:50 Ill=23% Aristarchus observed by Miles_H on 1987-3-4

     On 1987 Mar 04 at UT 19:03-19:47 H. Miles (Cornwall, UK, 5" refractor, 
     x30, S=clear) found at 19:03 that Aristarchus was exceptionally bright 
     (even without blocking out the sunlit side of the Moon), being the most 
     easily seen crater on the Moon, and this was despite the sky not yet 
     being dark. The crater had faded by 19:20UT and at 19:47UT Earthshine 
     was no longer visible. CED brightness measurements were made and were 
     less than usual and the inside of the crater may have had a blue/gray 
     colour (unclear from the Cameron 2006 catalog description). The Cameron 
     2006 catalog ID=299 and the weight=2. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     On 1983 May 16 at UT20:35-22:10 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK) noted that 
     Aristarchus was dull in Earthshine (UT21:36-21:40). The floor was a 
     luminous rose/violet colour. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=219 and the

     On 1880 Nov 06 at UT 20:00 an unknown observer observed a TLP at an 
     unknown location on the Moon. The Cameron catalog has an entry for this 
     date and time but does not specify the location, the observer or what 
     was seen. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=218 and the weight=0. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jun-18 UT 01:12-01:52 Ill=24% Aristarchus observed by Hobdell on 1981-6-7

     On 1981 Jun 07 at UT02:30-03:00 B. Hobdell (St Petersberg, FL, USA, 
     10" and 4" reflectors, seeing=I) at 02:30UT saw a flash from 
     Aristarchus and another one from Schroter's valley. By 02:45UT 
     Aristarchus was starting to be difficult to see and had occasionally a 
     bluish cast. By 03:00UT the crater could only barely be seen. This was 
     odd because visibility on the Earthlit side was really rather good. The 
     Cameron 2006 catalog ID=143 and weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jun-18 UT 01:12-01:52 Ill=24% Copernicus observed by Hobdell on 1981-6-7

2018-Jun-19 UT 00:19-02:04 Ill=34% Aristarchus observed by Madej_P on 1983-5-17

     On 1983 May 17 at UT20:13-20:40 P. Madej (Huddersfield, UK, x38 and 
     x63) found that Aristarchus was normal in appearance, but at 20:19 a 
     blood red disk was seen as bright as a 6th magnitude star. The colour 
     did not vary but the brightness changed from 4 to 8 over a 1.5-3min 
     period, on the south west wall. Foley (Kent, UK, 12" reflector)observed 
     Aristarchus at 22:10 and noted that it had the same rose-violet colour 
     as had been seen by him a day earlier. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=220 
     and the weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2018-Jun-19 UT 00:30-02:22 Ill=34% Aristarchus observed by Hobdell on 1981-6-8

     On 1981 Jun 08 at UT01:48-02:45 B. Hobdell (St Petersberg, FL, USA, 10 
     and 4" reflectors) could hardly see Aristarchus crater, however at 
     01:48UT it brightened in blue for about 3 minutes. Then at 02:20UT 
     there was a bright flash, and by 02:25UT the crater was very bright, 
     but by 02:45UT it was no longer visible. Cameron 2006 catalog ID=144 
     and weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     Cornwall, England, UK, 5"refractor? x60 and x120) found 
     Aristarchus to be a white ill-defined circular patch. At 
     17:45UT it was a lot brighter (Cameron comments that this 
     might have something to do with sky darkness). In contrast, 
     Copernicus was just seen as a white patch and the Jura 
     mountains could be seen (not as bright). Aristarchus grew 
     brighter over time and there was a bright point on the west 
     wall (seen at x60 and x120). t was fainter at 1854 & < At 
     1830. (Foley) said Earthshine cond. Superb with many regions 
     clearly seen, but Aris. was dull. (Cooks) in hazy condition 
     could not detect Aris." The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=338 and

     On 1983 May 17 Foley (Kent, UK, 12" reflector)observed 
     Aristarchus at 22:10 and noted that it had the same rose-violet colour 
     as had been seen by him a day earlier. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=220

2018-Jun-19 UT 02:24-02:47 Ill=35% Daniell observed by Madej_P on 1979-4-2

     Daniell 1979 Apr 02 UT 21:45-22:14 Obseved by Madej (Huddersfield, UK, 
     158mm reflector, f/4.2, x36-110, seeing II-III) "Obscuration seen" BAA 
     Lunar Section Report. Cameron says that this was a bright white cloud 
     that covered three quarters of the crater. A yellow filter was used at 
     21:48, but the cloud was still white, albeit thinner (at x110). By 
     22:14UT the TLP was barely visible and again no colour seen. Buczynski 
     (Lancaster, UK, seeing = poor) saw spurious colour. Later (22:31-
     22:46UT?) Mellor obtained some photos, but these revealed no colour.

2018-Jun-19 UT 02:46-02:47 Ill=35% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1980-4-20

     On 1980 Apr 20 at UT 19:25-23:43 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK, 10" reflector, 
     seeing II-III) found that Aristarchus was very bright in Earthshine 
     (also found on the photographs that he took), giving off a blue 
     "incadescence", the CED brightness reading was 5. Occasionally Foley 
     could see a star-like point in the south east corner. For comparison in 
     brightness he used highland terrain near to Grimaldi (CED=2). By 
     comparison, Buczynski and Lord, could not see Aristarchus. Earlier, 
     Geenwood saw the crater easily as a star-like point with a diffuse 
     exterior glow. Cameron says thyat this was confirmed by Buczynski and 
     Lord (?). At 20:35UT Amery decided that Aristarchus looked brighter 
     than normal. Pedler though described the crater as "small dim nebulous 
     blue or blue-green" that was invisible by 20:27UT. At 20:28-22:01 Blair 
     could not detect Aristarchus, nor could J-H Robinson at 20:40UT though 
     he did see it at 20:55UT as both diffuse and blue. Ricketts detected a 
     blow glow with irregularly spaced flashes of roughly 5-10 sec apart. 
     Cook's at Frimley, UK, saw no features in Earthshine. Cameron 2006

2018-Jun-19 UT 23:13-23:22 Ill=45% Julius_Caesar observed by Colesanti_C on 1993-6-25

     On 25 Jun 1993 at UT 23:30-23:52 Carlos Colesanti (Mairinque, 
     Brazil) obtained two CCD images of Julius Caesar crater and 
     noticed a brilliant fuzzy area on the rim of the crater. This 
     appeared in both images and resembled a fuzzy white blob. Note 
     that this is a REA-Brazil observation. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2018-Jun-20 UT 02:14-03:07 Ill=46% 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.

     12.5" Newtonian x342) "I was using a 12.5 f5 Newtonian reflector with a 
     9mm eyepiece and 2x Barlow with no filters. I had been observing other 
     features on the Moon when I had panned to the area where the sunrise 
     was taking place on Mount Piton. The mountain peak looked like a 
     shimmering block of ice with a phosphorescence luminescence cloud 
     around the peak. What was really interesting was the shaft of light 
     streaming across the Lunar Maria that appeared like a cone and it came 
     to a point near Mount Piton. The Mountain had the appearance of mother 
     of pearl and the luster or glow that surround the peak only lasted 
     about 20 minutes." The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=296 and gthe weight=4.

     UK, 5" Coude, Antoniadi II seeing, x150) "Floor blinks indicating 
     colour - used a Moon blink device". 2 areas of the floor were affected, 
     The first one was on the far west of Mare Crisium, next to Proclus 
     crater. The second area was in the NNW, but outside the edge of the 
     mare. Other features elsewhere checked but gave no colour reaction. 
     Peters (UK) though did detect colour elsewhere, but his seeing was III-

     On 1989 Jan 14 at UT 19:15-19:30 M. Holmes (Rochdale, England, 
     UK) reported that Torricelli B was "dull & inconspicuous". The 
     Cameron 2006 catalog ID=344 and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA

2018-Jun-21 UT 02:39-04:23 Ill=57% 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.

     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.


2018-Jun-21 UT 03:59-04:25 Ill=57% Mons_Piton observed by Marshall_KP on 1983-5-20

     On 1983 May 20 at UT00:00-03:00 K. Marshall (Medellin, Columbia) 
     noted that Mons Piton was too bright near the terminator and was 
     surrounded by shadow. A sketch was made. The mountain appeared 
     segmented with one thin shadow line. The mountain looked like a 
     Mexican Sombrero hat. This appearance is normal. What was 
     abnormal was that Piton was brighter than Proclus, and only 
     slightly fainter than Censorinus. The CED brightness 
     measurements were normal Piton=3.6, Proclus=3.5 and Censorinus=
     3.7. Please check to see whether this is still the case. The

     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.


2018-Jun-22 UT 02:55-04:36 Ill=67% 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.

2018-Jun-23 UT 23:14-00:53 Ill=84% Plato observed by Brook_C on 2006-2-8 *

     C. Brook of Plymouth UK, using a 4" refractor x216, noticed at UT 20:10
     dark patches coming and going (in terms of visibility) on the floor of 
     Plato. Occasional views of the central cratelet (seen as a white spot) 
     were glimpsed. The dark patches seen lasted about 1-2 seconds before
     fading out during each visibility cycle. Teneriff Mountains were 
     checked but no sign of seeing effects that might explain the dark floor
     patches. By 20:26UT the dark patch effect was fading and by 20:31UT 
     floor detail was visible. Observations ceased at UT 20:34. Seeing 
     conditions were II and the Moon was at a high altitude. Other observers 
     were alerted but came on-line after the effect had finished. ALPO/BAA 
     weight=2.


2018-Jun-23 UT 23:19-00:46 Ill=84% Censorinus observed by North_G on 2007-10-21

     At approximately 18:43UT observer noticed that Censorinus, and 
     its bright apron, appeared particularly brighter than normal. 
     There was some spurious colour present - but just a redness 
     along the southernmost extent of the apron visible; could not
     detect any blue along the northern edge however, he did do not
     suspect the colour to be anomalous. A re-examination at 18:51UT 
     revealed that the crater had faded and was seen to fade visibly 
     in real time to normal levels (over about a minute) by 18:53UT. 
     Other features remained constant and so too did the apparent 
     spurious colour.

     Dennis, UK,300m Newtonian, x150, seeing III, intermittent cloud) 
     - whilst producing some sketches of the crater - observer 
     noticed a faint point of light inside the shadow filled 
     interior, two thirds of the way out from where the central

     Darney observed by Cook (Frimley, UK, seeing III, Moonblink device) 
     See TLP report for Bullialdus (eastern side) concerning reddish
     areas. At 21:41 it clouded over but at 21:47-21:48 it 
     cleared briefly and the effect was noted on Bulialdus again.
     Also Darney appeared very visible through the red filter. 
     Probably both effects were spurious colour related as the Moon 
     was -18 deg in declination and the whole Moon had a slight 
     brownish tinge. An ALPO/BAA weight of 1 is assigned to this TLP."

     reflector) took some photos (albeit out of focus) that showed a bright 
     spot on the west rim. Cameron comments that this spot was sharp 
     compared to the rest of the photograph, so was probably a photographic 
     artifact. The effect was not seen in the finder scope. The Cameron 2006 
     catalog ID=103 and weight=2. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2018-Jun-25 UT 01:39-03:22 Ill=91% Aristarchus observed by Darling_D on 1989-9-12

     On 1989 Sep 12 at UT00:58-02:25 D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 12.5" 
     reflector, x159, S=7/10) observed similar light conditions to 1989 Jul 
     15. At 02:00 he observed pink on the south west wall of Aristarchus 
     crater. At 01:24UT the Aristarchus ray was yellowish, however the 
     entire Moon had a grey-yellow tinge of colour. Chromatic aberation was 
     observed at 01:56UT. By comparison Gassendi was checked and had no 
     colour. At 02:10 the crater wall of Aristarchus was unusual and was 
     quite different in appearance to rims of other craters. The cameron 
     2006 catalog ID=375 and the weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1. 


2018-Jun-25 UT 02:02-03:57 Ill=91% 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.

     On 1965 May 12 at UT 19:10 E. Penzel (Rodewisch, East Germany) was 
     taking a sequence of images during the impact of the Soviet Lunik 5. He 
     detected a tens of km scale elongated cloud after the impact over a 
     duration of 9.5 minutes. However there are differences between the 
     images elsewhere on the Moon, possibly due to different exposures or 
     some other effects and it is not 100% sure that what he detected was 
     impact debris/cloud?. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     On 2016 Jul 17 UT 03:49 P.Zeller (ALPO, Indianapolis, IN, USA) 
     imaged a pseudo-peak with shadow on the floor of Herodotus, 
     however the image scale and quality of this colour image were 
     not great and the observer suspects that it might be an 
     imaging artefact. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jun-25 UT 23:22-00:27 Ill=96% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1978-5-19

     P. Foley of Kent, UK, using a 12" reflector, seeing=III-II, noticed
     that initially that the crater was pretty dull and that the floor
     was a slate blue-gray in colour at 22:45UT. A noticeable green spot
     inside the crater on the south east appeared at 22:25UT and vanished
     at 00:50UT. Cameron notes that one doesn't get green with spurious 
     colour. Crater Extinction brightness measurements were made at 22:00 UT
     (reading=2.8) and at 23:45UT (reading=3.7). The crater dropped in 
     brightness from 3.7 to 2.8 at 23:50UT and remained lower until 3.0 at 
     23:50-03:15 UT. A graph was produced and showed Proclus and Censorinus

     On 1988 Sep 23 at 19:40-19:55 & 20:36-20:41 G. North (760mm 
     Coude Rrefractor, x250, Royal Grenwwich Observatory, 
     Herstmonceux, UK, seeing V, Transparency: Fair). 19:40-19:55 
     image very unsteady. All seems normal in other crtaters with 
     the exception of Arcimedes. Much of the rim seems indistinct 
     apart from a 1/4 length of the west rim. Strongly suspected 
     that this was due to a combination of seeing and illumination. 
     UT 20:02-20:06 - checked the area with a lower magnification 
     10" Astrographic Refractor - the crater seems more normal, so 
     suggesting that the theory was correct. 20:36-20:41 returned 
     to the 30" reflector, and the crater appeared similar to the 
     start of the session. This is almost certainly not a TLP, but 
     it would be helpful to have some images or sketches to check 
     this theory out. Weight=1.

2018-Jun-28 UT 01:34-03:10 Ill=100% Aristarchus observed by Mobberley_M on 1984-12-7

     On 1984 Dec 07 at UT 19:30-23:30 M. Mobberley (St Edmunds, UK, 
     seeing=IV-V, transparency=good, spurious colour seen) found 2 
     bright pathces on the east rim on alternate sides of a bright region. 
     The band from the central 16km wide region was dark on the east side. 
     Foley (Kent, UK, 12"reflector, seeing=II-III) found Aristarchus to be 
     not as bright as normal, apart from the band that Mobberley found (1 
     hour later). The dark regions were a murky green colour (bright through 
     green, blue and yellow filters and dark through red and orange 
     filters). Cook (Frimley, UK, transparency=excellent, CCD camera used) 
     found a bright "bulge"on the eastern side. Apparently data suggests 
     that the band was brighter in red than in near IR light. Cook's 
     calibrated brightness measurements suggest that there was no change in 
     brightness over the crater with time. Two other bright points were 
     seen: one at the Cobra's Head and another half way between the east rim 
     of Aristarchus and passes Herodotus. Wratten 29 (deep red), Wratten 87 
     (near IR) and combined Wratten 29 and Wratten 87 were used. In the red 
     Wratten 29 filter the brightness falls at22:20 at Shroters valley and 
     then rises in the bright ray. They return to normal at 22:30UT. There 
     was however a lot of measurement noise from the brightness readings of 
     points B and D. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=256 and the weight=5. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=3. 


2018-Jun-28 UT 01:43-05:38 Ill=100% Mare_Crisium observed by Brook_C on 2000-6-16 *

     On 2000 Jun 15 UT 20:37 C. Brook (Plymouth, UK, 60mm 
     refractor, x117 & x40, seeing good, transparency excellent) 
     observed abright spot on the north rim of Mare Crisium (57E, 
     25N). It was comparable to the illuminated rim of Proclus in 
     brightness. No colour seen. The spot was not visible the next 
     night. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jun-28 UT 02:15-03:22 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 
     were as follows: Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 12.5" reflector, x159, 
     S=9/10).  D. Weier (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 12.5" reflector, x159, S=

     On 1983 Jan 29 at UT22:09 M.Mobberley (Sulfolk, UK, 14" reflector) 
     noted that Arago B had a slight tinge of violet colour, and was a lot 
     less (bright?) than Torricelli B's blueness. Other craters checked but

2018-Jun-29 UT 05:43-07:24 Ill=99% Aristarchus observed by Marshall_KP on 1983-5-28

     On 1983 May 28 at UT 01:50-03:00 K. Marshall (Medellin, Columbia) 
     observed the whole region of Aristarchus, Herodotus and Shroter's 
     Valley all to have a brightness of 3 and all blue and impossible to 
     focus on (he had never seen it like this before). Also the interior of 
     Aristarchus was invisible. Brightness measurement taken and a sketch 
     was made. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=222 and the weight=3. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     Proclus 1972 Nov 21 UT 21:30 Observed by Farrant (Cambridge, England, 
     8.5" reflector, x130) "Thickened bright ring remained, but the dark 
     patch had disappeared. (dark patch prob. real temporary phenom. as it 
     was seen nr. FM when contrasts are strongest, yet disappeared" NASA 
     catalog weight=1 (very low). NASA catalog ID #1351.


2018-Jun-29 UT 09:22-10:33 Ill=99% Copernicus observed by Rawlings_G on 1978-4-23

     On 1978 Apr 23 at UT20:35 (Rawlings, UK, finderscope, x50) 
     observed a bright flash (~0.3 sec duration) near to Copernicus (20W, 
     9N) with rays to the south east whilst he looked through a finder 
     scope. Moore, who studied the drawing, suggests that the area of the 
     flash was near Copernicus. However Cameron says this cannot be the case 
     if the flash was in darkness as mentioned in the BAA Lunar Section 
     circular. She comments that it might have been a meteor? The Cameron 
     2005 catalog ID=28 and weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.
