2018-Sep-01 UT 16:05-19:57 Ill=65% 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-Sep-01 UT 19:28-20:31 Ill=64% 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. 
     Cameron 2006 catalog ID=154 and weight=3. ALPO/BAA weight=1. 


2018-Sep-01 UT 19:52-21:49 Ill=64% Aristarchus observed by Sage_VA on 1978-10-23

     Aristarchus 1978 Oct 23 UT 06:30-06:34 V.A. Sage (Bristol, UK, 
     10.25" reflector, x250, Wratten 44a and 25, seeing II) noted 
     that Aristarchus was surrounded by a dark area in the blue 
     filter. They did not regard this as a TLP at the time. However 
     because Aristarchus is surrounded by blue material in real life, 
     this should have been brighter? For this reason, despite the 
     observer regarding this as a negative TLP, an ALPO/BAA weight=1 
     has been applied.


2018-Sep-02 UT 19:13-20:54 Ill=53% Plato observed by Arsyukhin on 1981-12-19

     On 1981 Dec 19 at UT 01:00-05:00 E.V. Arsyukhin (Moscow, Russia, 3"

     (Parnaiba, PI, Brazil, 9.5" reflector, x90, seeing=good) 
     observed during a lunar eclipse that the Straight Wall 
     surroundings were darker than an observation from two days 
     earlier. At 07:09UT tonality became clearer. As dawn was in 
     progress and atmospheric turbulence, not sure if it was a TLP? 
     Other features were normal. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1297 and 
     weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Sep-03 UT 18:58-22:41 Ill=41% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

2018-Sep-04 UT 19:57-21:34 Ill=30% Limb observed by Dunn_S on 1762-6-16

     Closest parts of the Moon at Saturn appearing from
     occultation were dull and hazy. Was this an effect of
     the lunar atmosphere or a high haze and halo around the Moon?
     Cameron's 2006 catalog extension gives this an ID No. of 3
     and a weight of 1. The ALPO/BAA catalog weight is also 1.


2018-Sep-04 UT 21:44-23:02 Ill=30% Aristarchus observed by Theiss on 1973-5-27

2018-Sep-06 UT 21:57-00:00 Ill=11% Reiner observed by Darling_D on 1986-6-4

     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.


2018-Sep-06 UT 22:20-23:02 Ill=11% S_Pole observed by Hill_H on 1984-7-25

     Southern cusp obseved by H.Hill (UK) on 1984 Jul 25. Solar 
     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.


2018-Sep-06 UT 21:57-22:40 Ill=11% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

     this position approximating Linne (?). At 04:20UT Moseley, of 
     Armagh, Northern Ireland, using a 10" reftactor x 80 
     (seeing=fair) saw a flash in the centre - Alphonsus or Parrot?

     spot in Earthsine, just north of Aristarchus (47W, 25N) at position 
     angle 30deg-40deg, only a little way in from the limb. It appeared like 
     a star through haze and a few seconds of arc in diameter. It was 
     Visible for more than 1 hour until 20:50UT although had faded somewhat 
     by that time. However J. & M. Cook (Frimley, UK, 12" reflector, x143

2018-Sep-17 UT 14:43-15:57 Ill=56% Torricelli_B observed by Gray_R on 2002-10-14

     Torricelli B 2002 Oct 14 UT 02:58-03:43 Observed by Gray (Winnemucca, 
     NV, USA, 152mm refractor x114, x305, seeing Antoniadi III, transparency 
     good) "I was out this morning (2:58-3:43 UT, October 14, 2002) 
     observing Torricelli B. At 3:17 UT the west sunlit wall of the crater 
     brightened from an intensity (Elger Scale) of 5.0 to 9.0. In actual 
     terms it went from slightly less bright than the walls of Picard to as 
     bright as the sunlit west wall of Dionysius. This was observed at 114x 
     in white light, where all three craters were in the field of view 
     simultaneously. This event lasted less than a minute and no comparable
     brightening in Dionysius or Picard was seen. The wall of Torricelli B 
     returned to 5.0 in brightness. I continued to observe Torricelli B in 
     white light until 3:43 UT, but the brightness remained at 5.0. Before 
     the brightening I tried blinking Torricelli with the following 
     combinations of filters: Wratten Red 25 and Blue 38A, Red 25 and Blue 
     80, and Red 25 and Schott BG38 (Blue Green). Nothing showed up more 
     prominently in any combination except the Red 25-Blue 38A combination, 
     where Torricelli B became invisible in the Blue, probably because of 
     the filter density. Both the Blue 80 and Schott BG 38 seemed closer in
     density to the Red 25 than the Blue 38A is. I could not see any details 
     inside Torricelli B during this session, including the bright spot on 
     the NE rim." The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     Edmund Optics filters (rose No. 47 and blue No. 80), 
     transparency poor due to thick haze. seeing was excellent) 
     observed that that the rays that crossed Mare Cisrium from
     Proclus were brighter in red light than in blue. A similar 
     effect was also observed, to a lesser extent south of the

     On 1975 Apr 19 UT 21:09 P. Foley (Kent, UK), detected blue in 
     Plato on east. Fiton at UT20:45 found blue along the south wall 
     at the east (IAU?) end, which was very bright white. Blueness 
     extended towards the large landslip at the east of the formation. 
     Immediately north of the landslip, where the bright wall curves 
     first westwards, then again northwards, red could be faintly 
     detected, folloowed by a very faint blue. All other parts of the 
     formation were normal. Examination with a Moon blink device 
     revealed no colour blink. J-H Robinson also found blue, with red 
     on the west wall (exterior?). By 21:30UT Fitton found Plato to be 
     normal and so was Proclus, though he did find Epigenes (bright 
     cresecent of east wall only) slightly blue to the N.W and red 
     to the S.E. Mare Crisium was normal. Prominent spurious colour 
     seen on Venus, but it was low in the sky, with blue to the north 
     and red to the south. However J.H. Reading, managed to see the

2018-Sep-19 UT 10:59-11:26 Ill=73% Picard observed by Madej_P on 1982-10-26

     On 1982 Oct 26 at UT 20:41-22:22 P. Madej (Huddersfield, UK, seeing=II 
     and transparency=good) found that a blurring effect on the crater 
     Yerkes had spread to Picard (~3.5 deg brightness). The effect was not 
     detected in yellow light from the Wratten 15 filter, but a brightness 
     change was picked up in red Wratten 25 light. J.D. Cook found dark 
     surrounding Picard bright illumination. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=188 
     and weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

2018-Sep-19 UT 14:05-15:52 Ill=74% Plato observed by Brook_C on 2009-4-4

     On 2009 Apr 04 at UT 20:30-20:45 C. Brook (Plymouth, UK) observed a 
     slight pinkish mottling on the floor of Plato. The effect was no longer 
     visible after 20:45UT. A telephone alert was put out to M. Cook and G. 
     North. The former saw no colour, but this was after the event finished. 
     The latter observer reported cloudy conditions. A.Cook was probably 
     observing at the same time as C. Brook, via a couple of remotely 
     controlled telescopes in Aberystwyth. The results (time lapse imagery 
     through narrow band filters) will be examined at a later date.


2018-Sep-19 UT 14:27-16:20 Ill=74% Plato observed by Burton_M on 1972-3-24

     Plato 1972 Mar 24/25 UT 20:38-00:00 Observed by M.Burton (UK, 
     13.5" reflector, seeing IV-V, Transparency Fair, x180) UT20:38-
     20:45 floor was darker in a red filter than in a blue. UT20:47-
     20:56 JS Burgess (seeing 2/5, x200, with and without filters) 
     found everything normal (with and without filters). UT20:00-
     20:07 and 21:30-21:35 A.J. Beddoes found everything normal (with 
     and without filters). However at 23:10 L.Fitton suspected that 
     the E (IAU?) floor of Plato had a red-brown cast, but could not 
     be quite sure. UT23:54-00:00 M.Burton, detected the floor was 
     darker in red than in blue light. Burton did not detect any 
     colour without the use of filters on either of the two occasions 
     that he detecetd a blink. In view of the fact that two observers 
     did not detect anything, albeit not concurrently with the TLP 
     reports, this TLP is being given an ALPO/BAA weight of 1.


2018-Sep-19 UT 14:51-16:23 Ill=74% Eudoxus observed by Unknown_Observer on 1882-2-27

     On 1882 Feb 27 at UT 18:30-19:30 an unknown observer reported an 
     unusual shadow in Eudoxus. Apparently the shadow was seen to be normal 
     on 1882 Feb 25 at UT 20:30-20:45. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=228 and 
     weight=3. Reference: Sirius Vol 15, 167, 1882. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Sep-19 UT 15:05-18:40 Ill=74% Pytheas observed by Robotham on 1982-8-29 *

     On 1982 Aug 29 at UT 02:13-02:30 Robotham (Springfield, ON, Canada, x97 
     and x160) found that the west rim of Pytheas crater was very bright, 
     especially at lower magnifications, being one of the brightest spots on 
     the Moon. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=182 and weight=3. ALPO/BAA 
     weight=2.


2018-Sep-19 UT 15:09-16:42 Ill=74% Eimmart observed by Pickering_WH on 1913-6-14

     Eimmart 1913 Apr 14 UT 01:00 Observed by Pickering (Mandeville, 
     Jamaica, 6.5" reflector) "By this date crater was clear  & at an albedo 
     ~5?. Drawings compare Jan. 16 & Aug.9, 1913." NASA catalog weight=3 
     (average). NASA catalog ID #344.


2018-Sep-19 UT 15:15-17:02 Ill=74% Plato observed by Cook_MC on 2009-4-4

     On 2009 Apr 04 at UT 21:40 M.C Cook (Mundesley, UK) after receiving a 
     telephone alert call, examined Plato crater. Although she did not 
     report C. Brook's slight mottled pink on the floor of Plato, she did 
     report through that the floor patches looked darker than normal, 
     especially in blue light and in red they were not visible at all. In 
     white light they were darker than normal. A.C. Cook was probably 
     observing at the same time via a couple of remotely controlled 
     telescopes in Aberystwyth. The results (time lapse imagery 
     through narrow band filters) will be examined at a later date.
     Note that this observation was made after C. Brook said that he could
     no longer see his TLP. Therefore this constitutes a different TLP
     as there had been a gap of 1 hour since the last TLP report.


2018-Sep-19 UT 17:05-17:34 Ill=74% Agrippa observed by Bartlett on 1966-8-26

     Agrippa 1966 Aug 26 UTC 01:52-02:24 Observer: Bartlett 
     (Baltimore, MD, USA, 5" reflector x437) "Shadow of C.p. was 
     grayish, wall shad. was normal black, C.p.itself barely disting. 
     from floor" S=5, T=3. NASA catalog weight=4 (high). NASA catalog 
     ID #966. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Sep-19 UT 17:25-17:34 Ill=75% Agrippa observed by Bartlett on 1962-9-9

     In 1962 Sep 09 at UT 01:42-02:00 Bartlett (Baltimore, MD, USA, 
     5" reflector, x180, S=5-4, T=3) observed in Agrippa the shadow 
     of the central peak to be grayish, not much darker than the 
     floor, estimated at 3deg bright, whereas on 1962 Jul 12, at col 
     28deg, in the 5" telescope the dhadow was anormal black and 
     sharply defined against the floor which was 3 deg bright. The 
     Cameron 1978 catalog ID=768 and the weight=4. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=2.


2018-Sep-20 UT 10:59-12:06 Ill=81% Plato observed by Foley_PW on 1983-7-20

     On 1983 Jul 20 at UT 18:50-22:40 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK, 12"reflector, 
     seeing II-III) noted that the south wall of Plato at the 11 o'clock 
     position, at the location of a cleft, was fuzzy on either side of the 
     cleft. There was also a deep red colour along the cleft and the outside 
     wall. The colour had gone by 22:40 though. All other parts of the rim 
     of Plato were clear and distinct. M. Cook (Frimley, UK, seeing III) 
     sketched some obscurations at 22:03UT. At 22:08UT the red colour 
     reduced to a red line and vanished by 22:37. The south wall obscuration 
     varied in size and there was a possible obscuration at the 7 o'clock 
     position. J. Cook (Frimley, UK, seeing II-III) confirmed Foley's and 
     M.Cook's observations. Detail inside the crater was sharp, but colour 
     oppoiste to what is usual. Price (Camberley, UK, seeing IV-V) a few km 
     away had atmospheric ripples affecting his observations. At 21:36UT G. 
     North described the south wall as odd in appearance and the terrain 
     south of this was lacking in detail - this was odd because elsewhere 
     Plato was nice and sharp. At 21:45UT though the north section of the 
     crater was a hazy red. The cameron 206 catalog ID=224 and the weight=5. 
     The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2018-Sep-20 UT 11:32-13:12 Ill=81% Campanus observed by Bush_S on 2014-1-11

     Campanus 2014 Jan 11 UT 22:00-22:30 S.Bush (UK, 6" SCT, x180, 
     seeing average) made a sketch of the Campanus and Mercator 
     craters. He found that the central peak of Campanus difficult 
     to resolve and the floors of both craters were devoid of 
     detail. Mercator was the lighter shade of the two floors. 
     Earlier at 19:47 UT M.Brown (Huntingdon, UK) imaged this 
     region and using Registax resolved details on the floors of 
     both craters, though Mercator clearly was slightly lighter in 
     floor shade and had less detail on its floor than Campanus. 
     The most likely explanation was that it was just seeing 
     effects blocking the visibility of detail - this of course is 
     less of a problem for a Registax usid on the CCD image. 
     However just to be sure this observation is being given an 
     ALPO/BAA TLP weight of 1, to encourage visual observers to 
     attempt this observation under similar illumination and 
     seeing.


2018-Sep-20 UT 11:52-13:45 Ill=81% Mons_Piton observed by Louderback_D on 1983-8-19

     On 1983 Aug 19 at UT 07:15-07:30 D. Louderback (South Bend, WA, USA, 
     3" refractor, x150) found that the direct sunlit side of Mons Piton 
     mountain (E) was brighter than (his designated) points C and D and this 
     happened at the same time as some "blurring"at 07:15UT. The darker 
     side, between C, A and B were not so dark through a red filter as 
     through a blue filter (this was the opposite of what had been seen 
     before at a high sun angle). Louderback suspects that there had been a 
     colour change since he last observed. He also noted that in red light 
     the whole lunar disk appeared fuzzy and out of focus. Louderback noted 
     a 1 sec brightness on the east slope and the whole mountain sharp in 
     blue light. The Moon's altitude was low though. Brightness measurements 
     were 4 in blue light and >= 4.6 in red light and "so illdefined almost 
     blended into plain". Cameon commnets that a telescope colour/focussing 
     issue may have been at work here! The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=226 and 
     weight=4. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2018-Sep-21 UT 11:18-12:56 Ill=88% Aristarchus observed by Fitton on 1975-2-22

     On 1975 Feb 22 at 19:00-22:50 Fitton (Lancashire, UK, 8" reflector, 
     seeing=II-III-I) saw Aristarchus (at 19:00UT) blue, with no obscuration 
     visible in white, red or blue filters. This was not a telescopic 
     effect. "Obs. 4.5h. Says it & next 5 nites obs. were due to high 
     pressure system W. of obs.". Foley found nothing unsual in Aristarchus 
     in his observing session, which overlapped Fittons. The 1978 catalog

     Curtis, Keyes, Yanna, Norman, Knutson, Sullivan, Eichman and Radi (Carl 
     Fosmark Jr. Memorial Observatory, Madison, WI, USA, SCT C11) "Manske 
     initially observed a reddish tinge on the SE rim of Aristarchus. The 
     colour was present in different eyepieces. Two other pinkish tinge 
     areas were seen on the SE and NE rims. 4 of the observers did not see 
     colour. Independent confirmation was made by Don Spain (KY) and Smith 
     in LA. Full details can be found on the following web site:

     40-250x, S=IV and transparency good) found the north west wall to be 
     brighter in red than in blue light, however the effect faded during 
     21:29-21:41UT and was gone by 22:40UT. There was however spurious 
     colour on the north west wall. M. Cook (Frimley, UK) found the central 
     peak to be both bright and diffuse, and brighter in red than in blue 
     light during 20:52-20:57UT, however at "22:53-23:58 c.p. very bright & 
     previous area decreased in size. No detail in white or red, just 
     visible in blue. Sketch (J. Cook) Orange out on NW rim & on NW side of 
     c.p. Similar effects seen on  other craters. (madej) c.p. & W. rim wall 
     very sharp. c.p. disappears in yellow but still seen in purple.

2018-Sep-21 UT 12:10-13:47 Ill=88% Plato observed by North_G on 1992-5-13

     On 1992 May 13 at UT 20:16-21:29 several observers reported a TLP in 
     Plato mostly concerning the visibility of floor craterlets, however 
     observer seeing varied from III-V. North (UK, 18.25" reflector) 
     reported "Colouration and floor craterlets very prominent. Seeing 
     Antoniadi V, Transparancy Poor.". Foley (Kent, UK, 12" reflector 
     seeing=III-IV) found the floor to be bright and in the better moment of 
     seeing detected floor craterlets. The WNW spot was misty some of the 
     time. Moore (Selsey, UK, 15" reflector, seeing V) had very poor seing 
     conditions. J.D. Cook and M.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, 3.6" reflector, 
     seeing II-III) used a CCD camera at 22:11 UT. The Cameron 2006 catalog

2018-Sep-21 UT 13:07-14:22 Ill=88% Plato observed by Foley_PW on 1983-7-21

     On 1983 Jul 21 at UT 21:02-23:18 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK, 12" reflector, 
     seeing=III) found the region around the cleft on the souther rim to be 
     out of focus - however atmospheric conditions were turbulent until 
     23:18UT. An unsual dark triangular region (long base against rim) was 
     seen to extend from the inner rim at 12 o'clock onto the floor for 13-
     16km. The crater had lots of detail elsewhere. M. Cook (Frimley, UK) 
     found the south east to soth west to be obscured again, but not as 
     badly as she had seen on the 20th July. J. Cook (Frimley, UK) found the 
     dark region had 2 white bands on the side and the south west wall was 
     blurred like it was on the 20th July - this time tough colour was not 
     present. There were also two light patches on the floor. Mosely 
     (Coventry, UK) observed the south wall at x120 and found the wall out 
     of focus at the 11 o'clock location. Through a yellow filter he saw a 
     "white mistiness: on the top of the southern rim and only the south 
     east cleft could be seen (no colour). By 22:40-23:00 the effect had 
     cleared up. No dark triangular patch was seen. When Marshall (Surrey, 
     UK) observed (22:30-03:00) nothing unsual was seen, though a sketch 
     provided shows a light patch on the floor located at 11 o'clock. All 
     observations, made by all observers had some atmospheric turbulence, 
     however trsnparency was good. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=225 and the 
     weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     (13" refractor) all from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil "Crater was 
     gray-bluish, different from any other region & unusually bright. 
     Cardoso saw brightening, used blue, red, green & neutral

2018-Sep-21 UT 16:02-17:34 Ill=89% Aristarchus observed by Barr on 1963-11-28

     On 1963 Nov 28 at UT 00:30-01:45 Barr, Greenacre, Hall and 
     Dungan (Flagstaff, AZ, USA, 24" refractor, and 69" reflector) 
     observed pink on the outer SW rim and a red spot towards the S of 
     this. A red spot was seen on the eastern side of Vallis Schroteri
     but only by Barr and Dungan. Other features checked for 
     atmospheric spectral dispersion and chromatic aberation - but the 
     colours in Aristarchus were not due to these. Smaller 12" scope 
     checked but no effects seen - presumably due to resolution and 
     image contrast issues? Pink on the SW rim may have been seen in a 
     69" scope by Boyce and Ford. ALPO/BAA weight=4.


2018-Sep-21 UT 16:31-18:20 Ill=89% Herodotus observed by Bartlett on 1966-6-30

2018-Sep-21 UT 17:19-19:01 Ill=89% Vallis_Schroteri observed by Weier_D on 1992-3-16

     On 1992 Mar 16 at UT 00:39-01:14 D. Weier (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 11" 
     reflector) at 00:39UT noted some soft, diffused, faint ïllumination 
     within the shadow projected over the Cobra Head area, though it had a 
     sharp appearance to the edge of the shadow. D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, 
     USA, 11" reflector) was taking photographs from UT 00:51 and making 
     drawings and visual descriptions. The first 3 photographs in the 
     sequence have the crater as normal. Four other photographs reveal an 
     abnormality. Seeing conditions were excellent and a great deal of 
     surface detail was seen inside Aristarchus crater - however the 
     apeparance of the Cobra's Head was "washed out" and again shadows near 
     to this were illuminated. The NASA catalog ID=442 and the weight=5. The

2018-Sep-23 UT 11:19-12:19 Ill=97% Aristarchus observed by Louderback_D on 1983-8-22

     On 1983 Aug 22 at UT 05:44-06:33 D. Louderback (South Bend, WA, USA, 
     3"refractor, x150) found the brightness of Aristarchus (diffuse white 
     patch) to be 7 to 7.5 but apparently it is normally 8-8.5, so fainter 
     than normal. Another brightness reading found "brightening then nearly 
     extinction at S. wall similar to changes seen on Eimmart before. 
     Watched fluctuation compared to Cobra Head, they were similar but more 
     pronounced at Aristarchus" especially in blue light compared to red 
     (although there was a little brightness in red). Timings of these 
     fluctuations were 7sec, 7sec, 9-10sec and 9-10sec. The latter two might 
     have been seeing related as the crater enlarged up at these times. The 
     observer felt that the Cobra Head appeared fainter than the previous 
     year and had faded during the second set of brightness measurements.

     Aristarchus) for a fraction of a second, followed by a bright 
     spot in the same position (not an astronomer). After 
     discussions with others, decided it was a moment of transition 
     to greater intensity (better seeing?). Moore thinks it was 
     atmospheric but says it should be on record. Cmeron's 1978

     reflector, x200, Wratten 25 and 44A filters, seeing II-III, 
     transparency, good) noticed in Aristarchus, blue to the north west
     (IAU?) internal wall, also blue observed in other small bright objects 
     against dark backgrounds. Lunar rotational axis and optical normal 
     related such that the normal runs NW-SE (IAU?) through these features. 
     Observer deduced that the coliur was obviously spurious and no blink 
     was seen in any feature. The blue disappeared as the lunar altitude 
     increased and no blue seen by 00:00UT. This is a BAA lunar section
