     Herodotus 1998 Dec 30 UT 18:50-19:10 observed by J.Knott 
     (Liverpool, UK 22cm Newtonian, x216, seeing II, transparency 
     good). Observer reports a bright spot, as bright as the 
     central peak in Aristarchus on the NW rim of Herodotus at 
     19:10 (still there at 19:15, but the curious thing was that it 
     was not visible earlier at 18:50? Now there is a bright 
     craterlet here, and the observer doubted if what he had seen 
     was unusual - though we have the rise in brightness o20 
     minutes to account for? The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     3" refractor, x150, seeing poor and chromatic aberation on the limb) 
     detected "purple"in the vicinity of Aristarchus crater and this was 
     stongest on the north and north west external rims, however there was 
     no "violet glare"from inside the crater. However the region of the 
     central peak was very bright - though he could not detect the central 
     peak. The brightness of the TLP was 4.5 and it should normally be 3 
     (nimbus area). Near the "big plain"it was 7. The chromatic aberation 
     seen on the crater. There was also violet on the northen wall of 
     Herodotus crater and the Cobra Head. Īt appeared dark blue in the blue 
     filter", the surrounds remained gray". Apparently on the 26th the"ring 
     was still dark with faint violet - nearly normal". Cameron comments 
     that the TLP was due to spurious colour. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=
     229 and the weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     red. In blue the central spot was seen and there were dark radial 
     streaks to the south wall and south east. At 22:50 there was a loss of 
     detail. Other craters were normal. At 23:08 the floor was dark in red,

2019-Oct-15 UT 02:26-03:26 Ill=98% Plato observed by Moore_P on 1980-9-25

     On 1980 Sep 25 at UT20:20-22:14 P. Moore (Selsey, UK) noticed that the 
     central craterlet was more visible in red than in blue. There was also 
     a streak on the floor that was "shifted to S & W." The floor was dark 
     and Mons Pico was bright. Peters found Plato's floor (and central 
     craterlet) to be dark, and darker in blue than in red, however he was 
     suffereing from spurious colour at his observing site. Cameron 2006

2019-Oct-16 UT 04:22-06:20 Ill=95% Aristarchus observed by Curtis on 1987-6-14

     Aristarchus 1987 June 14 UT 04:43-08:00 Observed by Curtis, Jacobs, and 
     Manske (Yanna Research Station, Carl A. Fosmark Jr. Memorial 
     Observatory, Madison Astronomical Society, WI, USA, 17" f4.5 Dobsonian 
     and the 8" f10 SCT Celestron) "On the night 13/14  June  11:42 P.M. to 
     3:00 A.M. local time or 14 June 04:43 to 8:00 UT. Three people 
     witnessed this event and all three of them observed with three 
     different telescopes to rule out instrumental aberration. These three 
     pople were members of the Madison Astronomical. The three observers 
     involved are Keith Curtis, Tom Jacobs and Robert Manske. Keith Curtis 
     took detailed notes of the event as he observed it. The observations 
     were made at the Yanna Research Station, Carl A. Fosmark Jr.
     Memorial Observatory of the Madison Astronomical Society following the 
     annual picnic. This is MAS dark sky site and is located near Brooklyn, 
     Wisconsin. As they were observing the night sky they saw the Moon 
     rising and noted a strong orange color due to atmospheric effects. 
     Approximately 1/2 hour after the Moon rise they decided to turn one of 
     the telescopes on it. It was at 04:43 UT, it was noted by Keith Curtis 
     that as the Moon rose it began to loose the horizon color effect and 
     return to its normal color, but he found that the red color was not 
     leaving the crater Aristarchus. At first they all thought this was an 
     atmospheric effect but decided it was a real event since they detected  
     a second crater (Euler) showing red color on its rim. Keith Curtis
     said that the red color was very strong on the Western rim of 
     Aristarchus with a strong blue/green or aqua green on the Eastern rim. 
     Keith also reported that the glow opaque enough to prevent viewing of 
     the interior of crater Aristarchus. He said they observed until 3:00 
     A.M. daylight saving time or 8:00 UT. and the red glow was still 
     visible when they ended  their observing session. Robert Manske 
     description of the event was that he saw two craters glowing a strong 
     red and blue giving it a rainbow effect. He said that the red glow was 
     so strong he was unable to see the craters underneath during the entire 
     observing session. Concerning the orientation of the red and blue was 
     on the crater he stated that  he did not remember since he failed to 
     take any notes. Concerning whether there was any difference in 
     appearance when they observed it with the 17" f4.5 Dobsonian and the 
     8" f10 SCT Celestron. He said that he could not detect any difference 
     to the lunar formation or the color on it regardless of which telescope 
     he used. He did mention that as the Moon was rising it had the 
     appearance of one large Maria in the center of the disk. This illusion 
     disappeared as the Moon rose higher into the sky. When talking to Tom 
     Jacobs he said that he remembered that he did not see anything on the 
     Moon until 1/2 hour after Moon rise. He said that he remembered that 
     the entire Aristarchus region had a strong reddish or pinkish color. 
     All three witness all reported variations in the type of color they 
     were seeing. This would indicate that individuals color perception is a 
     major factor during a color event. Keith Curtis saw a very strong 
     coloration around the rim of the craters, where Robert Manske saw the 
     entire region covered by this red and blue coloration and he could not 
     see the interior of the craters underneath. Tom Jacobs reported that 
     the glow covered the entire crater but he could see the crater 
     underneath it. The Moon never achieved a height greater than 21 degrees 
     so it could be that what the observers saw was caused by the Earths 
     atmosphere. Further details can be found on the following web site:

     Moon Blink carried out. In Red 25 Proclus looked nearly the 
     same as in white light. Through the Blue 38a filter, however, only the 
     brilliant lit south east wall was clearly visible. The northeast wall 
     was very dim with this filter. With no filters the NE and SE wall were 
     brilliantly lit, the SE wall was almost as bright as Aristarchus. A 
     thread like strip along the NW wall, possibly the rim of the crater, 
     was also brilliantly illuminated. The interior of the crater was a 
     featureless stygian black with the exception of a brilliant (intensity 
     9) thread of light that ran parallel  to the illuminated east wall.

     On 1981 Oct 18 UT 22:14022:16 M.Mobberley (Bury St Edmunds, UK, 
     14" Cassegrain, seeing variable, transparency misty) found that 
     the central craterlet on the floor of Plato was not visible, 
     despite it being visible under similar colongitudes on other 
     nights. Might be due to observing conditions, but observer 
     suspicous. At 02:08 the observer comments that the central 
     craterlet was ellusive, and at 02:42, though it is uncertain 
     whether they regarded it as suspicous still at this stage?

     f/10 reflector, x60, transparency very good, seeing III, 
     improving with altitude) attention initially caught by the 
     impression of a rosy colouration along the NW crest and outer 
     wall. For perhaps 2-3 min this persisted - before fading 
     entirely. The observer felt that the cause may have been 
     psysiological - or short-lived spurious colour. However 
     interestingly nearby craters did not show the effect. A 
     sketch was made over a longer time span 00:15-00:40UT.

     12.5" reflector, x342, seeing=excellent) detected the small crater on 
     its western rim But not on the eastern floor. This was odd because both 
     are equal in size, furthermore smaller craters could be seen and the 
     Moon was at a high altitude above the horizon, so seeing not a problem.

     Reiner 1986 Jun 04 UT 09:15-09:33 Observed by Darling (Sun Praire, WI, 
     USA, 12.5" Newtonian x79, x40, x35, Seeing 6, sky clear and steady - 
     Moon 9deg above horizon). David Darling was out on the morning of 4 
     June observing the planet Mars. While studying Mars the crescent Moon  
     rose giving me a splendid view of the earthshine portion of the disk. 
     As the Moon rose higher into the sky he decided to turn the telescope 
     onto it to the earthshine region of the Moon. He made it a practice 
     to examine this region of the Moon to monitor for craters that appear 
     to glow under this light. While observing he became aware of a black 
     spot located  in the sunlit portion of the Moon about 60 miles west of 
     the sunset terminator. At first he thought the black spot was a shadow 
     being cast by a large mountain or crater. When looking at his lunar 
     charts he could not locate any feature that would account for it. As he 
     continued to study the black spot he realized that it appeared darker 
     than any shadows on the Moon. It was at 4 June 1986 4:15 A.M. CDT or 
     9:15 U.T. when he first sighted the phenomena and it was at 4:25 A.M. 
     CDT or 9:25 U.T. that he realized he was seeing a lunar transient 
     phenomena event. It was at this time that he could start to see silvery 
     filaments or streaks in the black patch. Between 9:23 and 9:25 U.T. he 
     watched the black patch disappear. When the black spot had disappeared 
     he found that the location of the black spot was over the crater
     Reiner. he estimated that during the L.T.P. event that area covered by 
     the black cloud was approximately 40 to 50 square miles. He also had 
     examined other formations on the Moon during this event and none were 
     exhibiting the same phenomena witnessed over the crater Reiner.

     Selenographic colongitude=232.6. Observer noted a dusky ill-
     defined strip in Earthshine extending beyond the southern cusp 
     that appeared "atmospheric". Note that this is almost certianly 
     not a TLP but is worth checking out if the libration and solar 
     colongitude is similar, just to verify that this is what the Moon 
     normally looks like. ALPO/BAA weight=1.
