2019-Feb-10 UT 23:21-23:45 Ill=30% SW_Limb observed by Moeller_J on 2012-5-26 *

     On 2012 May 26 UT21:21 J. Moeller (Syracuse, NY, USA, using a 
     Konica Minolta DIMAGE Z5 digital camera, f/7.1, 1/250 sec 
     exposure, ISO-50, 69mm focal length, digital zoom x3) captured
     a hand held image of the Moon in daylight. On the SW limb of 
     the dark side of the Moon a bright spot can be seen. This has 
     a brightness comparable to that of Mare Serenitatis. There is 
     also a fainter dark blurred marking further inside the dark side.

2019-Feb-11 UT 23:21-23:27 Ill=40% Cassini_E observed by Knott_J on 2002-12-11

     Cassini E 2002 Dec 11 UT 16:30-18:46 Observed by Knott (Liverpool, 
     England, 216mm Newtonian, x216, red and blue filters used) seeing III, 
     transparency good) "Observations carried out of the area extending from 
     the Alpine Valley to the Crater Cassini. At 17:12 a pin point bright 
     flash was seen NW of the rim of the crater E in white light. A 2nd pin 
     point flash was also seen at 18:18, this time thru a blue filter. The 
     2nd flash was also seen on the NW rim of the crater E. The observer 
     does not think this was a TLP as the seeing was III, but the flash was 
     so bright as to be startling. Other peaks within the Alps were bright 
     but were much less so in red and ble filters, where the rim of the 
     crater E. NW edge was very bright in all filters, including white 
     light. Incoming cloud prevented further observation." BAA Lunar Section

2019-Feb-20 UT 02:55-04:51 Ill=100% Aristarchus observed by Porter on 1978-8-19

     On 1978 Aug 19 at UT02:45-04:00 Porter (Naragansetts, RI, USA, using a 
     6" reflector, Seing = 6/10) noticed blue on the north east corner of 
     Aristarchus and an orange glow on the south east wall. They detected no 
     movement or change in brightness. The observer used both eyes, to make 
     sure it was not an eye defect, and three filters: red Wratten 25, blue 
     Wratten 82 and Violet Wratten 47. Porter found that the colours faded 
     for a duration of 5 minutes and then returned. Their right eye gave a 
     good view and using their left eye they suspected that it was 0.5 steps 
     brighter than the remainder of the crater. The suspected colour 
     remained visible, even under moments of good seeing conditions. The 
     colour eventually faded over time and was eventually gone. Porter 
     reportd seein gcolour here on the following night. Apparently other 
     bright spots showed no colour. Fitton suggests that the filters used 
     confirm that the south east wass was definitely red in colour. The 
     Cameron 2006 catalog ID=37 and the weight=0. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     On 1996 Jul 31 at 22:40UT P. Moore (Selsey, UK, 15" reflector, x300) 
     noticed a lack of detail in the Cape Agarum area - he would normally 
     have expected to have seen some craterlets. However he would not rate 
     this observation much because the seeing was only III and he does not 
     think that it was an obscuration. However just in case he wanted to 
     record this report in the archives. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2019-Feb-24 UT 05:12-07:04 Ill=73% Messier_A observed by Moore_P on 1951-10-20

     Messier A 1951 Oct 20 UT 00:00? Observed by Moore (England) 
     "Brilliant white circular patch in it. has seen it & Messier 
     blurred several times." NASA catalog weight=4 (good). NASA 
     catalog ID #545 Note that the date and time given are probably 
     wrong as the Sun is ~7deg below the local horizon at this time. 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1 to reflect this error.


2019-Feb-24 UT 06:29-07:18 Ill=73% Aristarchus observed by Haas_W on 1957-10-13

     Aristarchus 1957 Oct 13 UT 07:00?$ W.Haas, according to the 1978 
     NASA Catalog is supposed to have seen a bright spot of light -- 
     "explosion" in this crater. Confirmation of activity
     in Aristarchus - Three independent observations within 4 hours.
     Cameron 1978 catalog weight=5 and TLP ID No.=676. Private
     comunication with Haas shows that he recorded nothing unusual
     on the 12th or 13th. Therefore an ALPO/BAA weight of 1 has
     been given until this matter is cleared up.

     Jansen 2013 Aug 26 UT 00:30-01:30 P. Grego (Cornwall, UK, 20cm 
     SCT, x200, seeing II, transparency good) observed a dark patch 
     just east of Jansen D. He had not seen this before. There maybe 
     a depression here hinted at in LOLA ndata. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2019-Feb-25 UT 06:43-07:10 Ill=62% 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.


2019-Feb-25 UT 06:56-08:48 Ill=62% Cabeus observed by Grego_P on 2009-9-9

     On 2009 Sep 09 UT23:31:43 P.Grego (St Dennis, Cornwall, UK, seeing II-
     III) suspected a flash south of Cabeus, just beyond the terminator.
     It was not bright, and lasted a fraction of a second. Thinks it might
     have been illusory as he saw some fainter flashes (cosmic rays?) 
     during that nights observing session. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Feb-26 UT 03:42-06:21 Ill=53% Aristarchus observed by Madej_P on 1983-1-5 *

     On 1983 Jan 05 at UT22:00 P. Madej (Huddersfield, UK) noticed some 
     colour on Aristarchus. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=195 and the weight=
     2. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Feb-26 UT 04:30-05:04 Ill=53% Kepler observed by deBerard on 1966-12-4

     Kepler 1966 DEc 04 UTC 05:10 Observed by de Beraud (Flossmoore, 
     Ilinois, USA, 6" reflector, x360, S=G) "Saw a bright area thru. blue 
     filter but could not see it in red filter. Decided it was a bluish 
     phenomenon." NASA catalog weight=3 (average). NASA catalog ID #1001.


2019-Feb-26 UT 06:41-07:09 Ill=52% Aristarchus observed by Cowan on 1974-9-8

     Aristarchus 1974 Sep 08 UT 04:45-06:30 Observed by Cowan and Johnson 
     (Dublin, TX, 8" reflector, x59, x152, S=7) "Saw a bright luminous, 
     blue, misty cloud on th NE rim. Obscur. for 1st hr. then gave way to 
     pink & features became vis. Cloud was tear-drop shape. No movement to 
     glow. Pink cloud glowed too. Very tenuous by 0130h. (Nakamura says 
     there were no seismic events within several hrs. of this time). Another 
     person saw it without being advised as the where it was." NASA catalog 
     weight=5. NASA catalog ID #1393. ALPO/BAA weight=4.


2019-Feb-26 UT 07:43-09:19 Ill=52% Alphonsus observed by Brook_C on 2009-9-11

     On 2009 Sep 11 UT00:15-00:20 and 01:00-01:05 C.Brook (Plymouth, UK, 5" 
     O.G., x100, seeing tremourlous but definition improving over time) 
     noticed that the central peak(s) in Alphonsus were brightening 
     gradually. No effect was seen earlier at UT23:30-23:35. One presumes
     that the effect also occured between these two observing times?
     The observer suspects that this was not a TLP, but is uncertain.
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Feb-27 UT 05:38-06:40 Ill=42% Wargentin observed by Gaudibert_CM on 1878-10-18

     On 1878 Oct 18 at UT 21:00? Gaudibert (France?, 4"refractor) observed 
     Webb's white spot on SW border of Wargentin to be brilliant, however 
     this had vanished by Oct 19. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=204 and the 
     weight=4. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2019-Feb-27 UT 06:34-08:04 Ill=42% Tycho observed by Carvalho_F on 2006-1-22

     Tycho 2006 Jan 22 UT 06:34-06:36 Observed by Fabio Carvalho 
     (Assis, Sao Paulo Brazil, 25cm f/6 Newtonian) "Green colouration 
     seen on a rim of Tycho, effect remained visible for only 2 
     minutes. Attempts to image it shortly afterwards failed as it 
     had finished by then" An REA-Brasil observational report. 
     ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2019-Feb-27 UT 06:59-08:51 Ill=42% Tycho observed by Cook_MC on 2009-9-11

     On 2009 Sep 11/12 UT23:28-00:00 M.C. Cook (Mundesley, UK, 90mm Questar,
     x80 and x190, seeing II and transparency moderate-poor) observed
     pink on the north west rim of Tycho and green-blue on the inner
     SW rim. No sign of colour elsewhere on the Moon except for the
     S-E rim of Plato that was red. The Moon was about 20 deg in altitude
     at the time. The effect had gone by the end of the observing period. 
     A simulation of spurious colour in different directions 
     was generated by the BAA Lunar Section and found to possibly account 
     for these colours, although there should have been some strong colours 
     seen elsewhere in Tycho and none were. The BAA/ALPO weight=2.
