     Lichtenberg area 1940 Oct 22 UT 07:12 Observed by Barcroft

     On 1958 Dec 02 at UT 06:00 an unknown observer detected a TLP on the 
     Moon. The reference for this is from Palm, 1967 Icarus. The Cameron 
     1978 catalog ID=709 and weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Sep-02 UT 00:58-03:53 Ill=62% Aristarchus observed by Bartlett on 1964-7-31 *

     Aristarchus 1964 Jul 31 UT 02:00-02:23 Observed by Bartlett 
     (Baltimore, MD, USA, 5" reflector x180) "Deep ravine on E.glacis 
     interrupted midway of its length by apparent break just below 
     rim of craterlet assoc. with EWBS. Normally, ravine is seen 
     continuous. Probable obscuration at pt, of break." S=7, T=5.

2018-Sep-02 UT 01:36-03:10 Ill=61% Vallis_Schroteri observed by Unknown_Observer on 1994-4-3

     On 1995 Apr 03 at UT 03:30 Unknown Observer (Transparency good) saw a 
     darkening in the Cobra Head, Schroter's valley area of Aristarchus - 
     the best example that he had ever seen. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=474 
     and the weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=. Reference - BAA Lunar Section 
     circular 1995 Oct, p125 and personal communication from David Darling 
     to the BAA on 6/6/1995. Note it is uncertain whether this refers to the 
     Clementine mission or to somebody who observed during the Clementine 
     mission, or somebody with that surname. Anyway if it is the Clementine 
     mission then the date is wrong - possibly the year should have been 
     1994? The Cameron catalogue does actually mention a TIFF on Clementine 
     mission? The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=474 and the weight=3. I am 
     assuming that the year should be 1994 and not 1995? The ALPO/BAA 
     catalog weight=1 until we can find out what the correct date is?

     Plato 1944 Sep 03 UTC 03:40 - A.W. Mount (Fort Worth, TX, USA,

     crater floor to the north of the central mountain leading to Gassendi 
     A. It lasted for about two minutes during 22-30 hrs UT to about 22-35 
     hrs UT (observer unable be more precise). Used 60mm OG x120. Seeing 
     quite steady trans good. Checked Gassendi again at 23hrs UT to 23-05. 
     No sign of colour. Also area mentioned earlier seemed lighter now. No 
     colour on Aristarchus. Plato floor dark -no sign of craterlets. Seeing

2018-Sep-26 UT 23:24-00:51 Ill=96% 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.


2018-Sep-26 UT 23:24-00:59 Ill=96% Aristarchus observed by Brook_C on 2002-9-23

     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.

     U.S.A. reported a contrast effect and brightening in the crater 
     Proclus. Using a 15.2 cm refractor he conducted a Moon blink search 
     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. 
     Whether this was an L.T.P. or an optical  effect of atmospheric

     On 1981 Oct 26 UT 20:44-21:14 M. Mobberley (Bury St Edmunds, UK,

     floor of Theophius, radiating on the central peak upto the 
     surrounding base of the wall next to Cyrillus crater. This fan 
     had a hint of yellow/red. The observer did not consider this to 
     be abnormal - there was certainly no loss of focus here as far 
     as the observer was concerned, and no mention is made of this 
     effect in later observations that night. Plenty of spurious
