2018-Nov-01 UT 03:07-04:51 Ill=45% Tycho observed by Sandel_J on 1996-2-12

     On 1996 Feb 12 at UT 07:30-08:27 J.Sandel (Caycee, SC, USA) 
     noted a contrast effect inside Tycho at sunset. At 07:30UT there 
     was a slight, but definite illumination of small areas of the 
     crater floor west of the central; peak. Also seen by T. Ferrel 
     (Lawrenceville, GA, USA, SCT C8). This was oval in shape and 
     gray in colour - Ferrel noted some diffuseness. It brightened 
     over 30 minutes. At 08:11UT a definite brightness fade noted in 
     Tycho's central peak. The crater floor had increased 
     illumination of entire crater floor. ALPO/BAA weight=3.

2018-Nov-02 UT 08:56-09:23 Ill=31% Aristarchus observed by Moseley_R on 1983-8-3

     Aristarchus 1983 Aug 03 UT 0305-0400 Observed by R,Moseley 
     (Coventry, UK, 6" reflector, seeing II, Transparency very good). 
     At the start of the observation, the NE wall and immediate 
     exterior was the brightest area visible (this is normal) and 
     seemed tinged with a faint blue/violet. At 03:45 the impression 
     of colour was fading in the brightening sky, but by 03:55 the 
     colour was back again with a faint violet/purple surrounding the 
     whole formation from E clockwise to N. The observer found it 
     difficult to decide whether it was really a colour on the Moon, 
     or an optical illusion. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     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=

     On 2012 Jan 09 UT 21:01-21:08 Hahn crater was imaged by N. Hazel 
     (Beverley, Yorkshire, UK, Nikon D7000 with 70-300 zoom at max, 
     with 2x teleconverter, at f9, 1/320 sec, ISO 400 – tripod 
     mounted, mirror up), A series of images were taken. The 21:06 one 
     showed a grey column cutting across the central floor of the 
     crater from the west and then bisecting the eastern rim. All 
     detail inside is completely invisble. Some (but not all) of the 
     other images showed a more blurred view of this feature. It's 
     possible that this was a seeing ripple effect, or just the 
     natural appearance of shadings on the Moon at this time, however 
     for now this will be given an ALPO/BAA weight of 1.

     In 1950 Jul 02 UT07:22 Bartlett (Baltimore, MD, USA, 3.5" 
     reflector) saw no dark bands on the inside of Aristarchus, 
     despite detail being seen elsewhere. He would normally have 
     expected to have seen bands at this colongitude, based upon past 
     observations. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Nov-25 UT 01:51-03:44 Ill=95% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1983-10-23

     Aristarchus 1983 Oct 23 UT 19:00-01:30 Observer: Foley (Kent, UK, 
     12" reflector, seeing=II) noiced at 19:00UT an extended bright 
     spot on E wall and extending beyond. This was brighter than other 
     areas of the crater. There was also occasional star-like 
     glistening. Foley comments that the inside of Aristarchus was 
     slightly obscured. The TLP started fading from UT20:30 and 
     finished by 01:30UT. six out of nine independent observers 
     confirmed the effects seen. In total 14 observers observed, 9 
     reported back and 6 found abnormalities in Aristarcus though all 
     encountered variable seeing conditions - some had spurious 
     colour. Cameron comments that this was one of the best 
     recorded/confirmed TLP events. All CED brightness measurements 
     obtained were very high. Moore, Nicolson and Clarke (5" refractor 
     and 15" reflector, 230-350xseeing III) found the crater to be 
     very bright at 19:11UT through a 5" refractor and there was a 
     blob on the east rim (Bartlet's EWBS?) at 19:14UT. Nicolson also 
     saw a very bright star-like area on the eastern wall but this was 
     not defined as it usually is. The crater was also very bright at 
     22:43UT using the 15" reflector available to these observers. At 
     01:07UT they used a Moon blink and discovered that the bright 
     region was bright in blue light and less bright in red - although 
     this was not a detactable blink when switching rapidly between 
     filters. They found that the crater had returned to normal by 
     01:15UT. M.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, seeing III-IV) observed a large 
     diffuse spot on the east of the crater that was brighter in blue 
     than in red light and the CED device gave a high reading. J.D. 
     Cook (Frimley, UK, seeing III-IV) made a skecth that showed the 
     bright spot extended on the east wall - again the CED reading was 
     high and a lot of detail was visible on the floor. A.C. Cook 
     (Frimley, UK, seeing III-IV) also noted remarkable detail and the 
     bright (as confirmed by CED) blob on the eastern rim. G. North 
     (Sussex, UK, seeing III-II) also confirmed the bright blob on the 
     eastern wall. Wooller found the north west wall was a dirty 
     yellow colour - though no colour was seen elsewhere in or outside 
     the crater. Mosely found the crater to be bright and his sketch 
     revealed the extension of the bright blob on the eastern rim and 
     again a great deal of interior detail. Amery (Reading, UK, seeing 
     III) found Aristarchus to be "a brilliant splash against dulled 
     background in violet filter, especially polarizing filter. CED + 
     polarizer readings high, but not as high as previous night". 
     Mobberley (Suffolk, UK, seeing III-IV) remarked that "spurious 
     colour a total mess around Aristarchus & nothing abnormal seen". 
     A photograph was taken at 20:50UT reveals the  bright blob and 
     entire detail. Peters (Kent, UK, seeingIII-II) observed  
     Aristarchus with a UV screen from 20:15-21:23UT and comented that 
     althogh being very bright, there was no variation between white 
     and UV. It was checked with a Moon Blink device and the radial 
     bands were  clearly seen in white light, < in blue. The Cameron 
     2008 catalog ID=233 and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=4.

     On 2002 Sep 23 at UT22:45-23:56 C. Brook (Plymouth, UK) noticed that 
     the bands inside Aristarchus varied (UT22:45-22:56) in definition 
     whilst the rim of Herodotus and the rays of Kepler and Copernicus 
     remained sharp. These bouts of variation were 1-2min in duration. At 
     23:56UT when he checked again the periodic blurrings of the bands were 
     still present. The observer suspected atmospheric effects. M.Cook 
     (Frimley, UK) observed 22:00-22:30 and could see only 2 bands on the 
     west wall - but this may have been because of poor transparancy. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     with Wratten 25a and 38a blue filters. His report goes as follows: 
     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.

2018-Nov-29 UT 01:51-03:04 Ill=60% Montes_Spitzbergen observed by Madej_P on 1980-10-30

     On 1980 Oct 30 at UT03:19-03:41 P. Madej (Huddersfield, UK, 158mm f/4 
     reflector, seeing I-II, and transparency very good. Wratten 15 (yellow) 
     and Wratten 35 (purple) used. No spurious colour seen). At 03:19UT, the 
     observer noted that Mons Spitzbergen looked sharper at x52. At x72 
     bright flashes of a bright lunar gray to a light orange colour seen. 
     BAA Lunar Section TLP team alerted. At 03:32UT a yellow filter used and 
     the flashes were better seen, one flash approximately 20-30 sec apart. 
     At 03:31UT Madej used a purple filter and could not see Mons 
     Spitzbergen but did see the flashes (45-60 sec apart). cameron 2006

2018-Nov-29 UT 03:14-04:45 Ill=60% Plato observed by Butler_FC on 1980-10-30

     Plato 1980 Oct 30 UT 05:00-0704 Observed by F.C. Butler (SW 
     London, UK, seeing III, but worsening (but not as bad as IV) 
     towards the end of the observing period, transparency 100% 
     clear, 22cm Newtonian reflector, x144, x185). The floor seemed 
     quite devoid of detail, apart from a vague mottling seen during 
     the briefest moments of best seeing conditions. At the start of 
     the observing period he could just glimpse the central craterlet 
     at x185, but could not be sure. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Nov-29 UT 04:44-06:42 Ill=59% Alphonsus observed by Hall on 1964-10-27

     Alphonsus 1964 Oct 27 UTC 05:18-06:10 Observed by Hall, Johnson, 
     Weresulk (Pt. Tobacco, MD, USA, 16" reflector x400, S=5-7). "Red spot. 
     Pink glow detected with Trident MB & seen visually too." NASA catalog 
     weight=5. NASA catalog ID #863.


2018-Nov-29 UT 08:22-10:00 Ill=58% Plato observed by Mobberley_M on 1982-8-11

     On 1982 Aug 11 at UT03:30-04:15 Mobberley (Suffolk, UK) obtained a 
     photograph and made a sketch that revealed a needle-like shadow from 
     the west wall to near by the central craterlet - the latter was quite 
     clearly visible. What were not visible were the other four craterlets. 
     The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=183 and weight=4. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Nov-29 UT 08:25-10:01 Ill=58% Tycho observed by Moseley_R on 1983-8-30

     Tycho 1983Aug30 UT 00:15-00:18 R. Moseley (Coventry, UK, 6" 
     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. 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Nov-29 UT 10:05-10:53 Ill=57% Lexell observed by Unknown_English_Observer on 1919-2-21

     In 1919 Feb 21 at UT 22:00? an unknown English observer observed in 
     Lexell crater an intensely dark line going out from it. The Cameron 
     1978 catalog ID=370 and weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Nov-29 UT 10:15-10:53 Ill=57% Archimedes observed by Darling_D on 1981-9-20

     On 1981 Sep 20 at UT 08:00-09:40 D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 
     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.

2018-Nov-30 UT 03:23-04:32 Ill=48% Alphonsus observed by Alter on 1958-12-3

     Alphonsus 1958 Dec 03 UTC 11:00? Observed by Alter, Mt Wilson, CA, USA, 
     60" reflector "Photog. spect. showed floor of crater redder than 
     neighboring areas outside its walls. (Palm had a rep't for this date -- 
     same area?). NASA catalog weight=4 (high). NASA catalog ID #710.


2018-Nov-30 UT 03:57-05:51 Ill=48% Tycho observed by Nibbering_J on 1994-1-4

     On 1994 Jan 04 at UT21:00 J. Nibbering (Rosendaal, Netherlands) 
     obtained a photograph that shows a large crescent of light centred on 
     Tycho crater, but includes also: Lilius, but not to Clavius. Cameron 
     suspects strongly that it was caused by camera lens flare. The Cameron 
     2006 catalog ID=471 and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2018-Nov-30 UT 10:05-10:56 Ill=45% Aristarchus observed by Brook_C on 2004-7-10

     "Observed early morning Moon, with 60mm OG x120, from 02-20 to  02-45 
     hrs UT targeting Plato, Aristarchus, and Alphonsus. From 02-20 to 02-30 
     hrs UT. Aristachus showed a faint pink colouration, where the light 
     material contacted the darker Mare surface. This was not seen after 02-
     30 hrs UT." Transparency very good, seeing somewhat unsteady at first, 
     improving later on. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.
