2019-Dec-04 UT 16:06-16:41 Ill=54% 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.

     On 1978 Nov 08 at UT03:00 D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 
     12.5" reflector, x95, seeing 8/10) saw near Beer and 
     Timocharis (11W, 30N) a bright flash inside the dark area. It 
     appeared like a diamond twinkling in sunlight and was somewhat 
     dazzling to the eyes. Cameron wonders in this was a meteor? 
     The Cameron 2005 TLP catalog ID=39 and weight=2. This is an 
     ALPO observation. The ALPO/BAA weight is 3.


2019-Dec-04 UT 18:09-19:59 Ill=54% Alphonsus observed by Poppendiek on 1958-11-19

     Large plume-like diffuse cloud over central peak, very
     large compared to central peak (@ approx 30km diameter)
     with intensity much different from other parts. Brightness
     between walls and shadowed floor. Would take 3 minutes to
     collapse, so continuously fed. 13-14 days later, at SS,
     central peak was normal. Kuiper took photos after Kozyrev's
     observations, but saw nothing abnormal. Drawing. Haas saw
     nothing in 12inch reflector at the time. Cameron 1978

2019-Dec-05 UT 16:37-18:11 Ill=63% Eimmart observed by Louderback_D on 1981-8-9

     On 1981 Aug 09 at UT05:08-05:21 D. Louderback (South Bend, WA, USA, 3" 
     refractor) found that the bright patch in the southern part of Eimmart, 
     could only be seen well in red light (this is between A, C and D in his 
     feature notation) i.e. 5 brightness values higher than in white or blue 
     light. Indeed in white light this bright area was closer to the east 
     wall bright spot. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=149 and weight=4. The

2019-Dec-08 UT 00:08-00:26 Ill=82% SW_Limb observed by Logue_DA on 1955-1-5

     On 1955 Jan 05 at 01:00-01:30 UT D.A. Logue (Larchment, PA, 
     USA, 15cm reflector at x340, seeing Good) saw a strange blue 
     light above the surface of the Moon where the night and the 
     day meet. He observed this light for more than 30 min and it 
     did not appear to move. It appeared like a star in that the 
     rays of light came from it. The observer adds that he first 
     thought thst the objects was a star, but later decided that it 
     had to be on the Moon itself. A drawing shows the blue spot 
     near the rugged south west (IAU?) limb of the Moon. The editor 
     of the Strolling Astronomer (Vol 8, No. 11-12, Nov-Dec 1954, 
     p146) was unable to identify the craters drawn. The editor 
     speculates that the observer saw a high mountain peak with its 
     summit in sunlight and detached from the illuminated regions - 
     however this would not explain the blue colour. Note this is 
     an ALPO observation and does not apear in the Cameron 
     catalogs. ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     he had not seen earlier. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=445 and weight=5.
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Dec-08 UT 16:17-17:27 Ill=87% Gassendi observed by Foley_PW on 1976-11-3

     On 1976 Nov 03 at UT20:00-21:40 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK) reported a TLP in 
     Gassendi - some obsevers detected colour, others did not. P. Moore did 
     not notice anything unsual earlier at 18:50-19:00, though his seeing 
     was IV-V. Nor did he see anything unsual from 21:53-00:20, but seeing 
     was still IV-V. D. Jewitt, observing 20:34-21:25 and 22:55-23:20 also 
     reported nothing unusual. Amery (Reading, UK, 25cm reflector, x300) did 
     however notice a small reddish spot to west of central ridge, but by 
     20:30UT the colour was less obvious, but the spot was back again at 
     20:45, but not easily seen at 21:00 and gone completely by 21:45UT.  
     N.Bryant (Ilfracombe, UK, 25.4cm reflector, x260), observed 3 red 
     patches on the floor between 20:54 and 21:31UT. A BAA Lunar Section

2019-Dec-08 UT 17:06-19:39 Ill=88% 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.


2019-Dec-08 UT 17:28-18:52 Ill=88% Aristarchus observed by Robinson_JH on 1980-8-22

2019-Dec-08 UT 17:28-18:52 Ill=88% Manilius_B observed by Robinson_JH on 1980-8-22

     On 1980 Aug 22 at 02:15-21:29UT J-H Robinson (Teighmouth, Devon, UK, 
     12" reflector, x200, seeing=II) noticed in the area south east of 
     Manilius that it was brighter in red light than in blue light at 
     20:15UT whereas 1 minute later it was the same brightness in each 
     filter. The effect reappeared at 20:21UT and was particularly strong at 
     20:32UT. Foley (Kent, UK) verified this at 21:01UT - the blink area was 
     of high reflectivity in white light and was bright in red at 21:15UT, 
     thougjh the south east area stopped giving a colour reaction at 
     21:25UT. Madej (Huddersfield) found Manilius B to be norm al at 23:52UT 
     however at 23:55UT it was surrounded by a transient white ring that 
     varied in visibility in an irregular way. Foley found Manilius B had a 
     vivid blue interior and in blue light the ring was black. and not at 
     all seen in red or white light. The CED brightness measurement varied 
     from 1.9 to 2.4. All other regions observed were normal in brightness. 
     Violet was seen on the west wall of Aristarchus though. M.Price 
     (Camberley, UK) found a possible blink in Manilius B but was observing 
     under poor seeing conditions. Cameron 2006 catalog ID=105 and weight=5. 
     ALPO/BAA weight=4.

2019-Dec-08 UT 21:29-23:16 Ill=88% Aristarchus observed by Rodway_D on 1997-10-13

     On 1997 Oct 13 at UT11:09-11:21 D. Rodway (Oamaru, South Island, New 
     Zealand, 8.5" reflector, x270) saw a deep salmon-pink colouration in 
     the south east corner interior of the crater Aristarchus. This colour 
     was confirmed by the observers wife. By 11:21 UT the colour had faded 
     completely. Rodway had been a lunar observer since 1958, using a wide 
     range of instruments from 3 inch refractors to 12 inch reflectors and 
     had observed a TLP in Gassendi back in 1966 (from L'ondon, UK), and so 
     was an experienced observer. The ALPO/BAA weight=4.

2019-Dec-09 UT 01:01-03:07 Ill=89% Vallis_Schroteri observed by Clementine on 1994-4-23 *

     On 1994 Apr 23 at UT 03:30 the US Navy Clementine Spacecraft, in orbit 
     around the Moon, obtained images of the Cobra Head region of 
     Aristarchus crater that suggested a ~15x colour ratio increase (0.4 
     microns / 1.0 microns) in comparison with images obtained on 1994 Mar 
     03. This was presented as a poster paper 18.04 at AAS 31st DPS meeting. 
     However it was later suggested that this was due to incorrect 
     radimetric calibration procedures being followed. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=1.

     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 
     observation. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Dec-10 UT 18:44-20:42 Ill=98% Lichtenberg observed by Hill_H on 1988-4-1

     x286) observed that east of Lichtenberg were ëxtensive rosy areas" 
     around the northern edge of the lava sheet. Hill believes that it may 
     have been the same effect as seen by Madler (Germany), Barcroft (USA) 
     and Baum's (UK) 1951 observation. The colour was "ünmistakable" and 
     nothing to do with the atmospheric spurious colour. Other features were 
     checked. the cameron 2006 catalog ID=322 and the weight=3. THe ALPO/BAA

     seeing=III) was able to see 4 craterlets and two rays on the floor of 
     Plato. This was suprising because Moore, using a larger telescope and 
     magnification, was unable to see any detail here on 1991 Dec 12th at

     On 1975 Nov 18 at UT 19:38-23:34 Moore (Johannesburg, South Africa, 2" 
     refractor, S=II), Peters (Kent, UK, 8.5" reflector, x120, S=IV), Good 
     (Guilford, UK, binoculars), Foley (Dartford, Kent, UK, 12" reflector 
     and photographs), and McKay (Kingston, England, UK, 6" reflector, x48) 
     observed the following in Aristarchus during a lunar eclipse: "It 
     appeared much fainter than ever before seen in ecl. by Moore. Fainter 
     than Proc., Cop., & Tycho. Others rated brightness in order-- Hell, 
     Stevinus, Furnerius, proc.; & Proc., Tycho, Hell, Aris. Photos 
     confirmed dimness of it. For some observers it became invis. at S=II 
     (good). Good ranked at least 4 other craters brighter than Aris. & that 
     at 2035h it dimmed. Earthshine cond. extraordinarily good. Peters, at 
     S=IV (fair?) rated Aris. brightest". At 23:50UT LeCroy Jr and Sr 
     (Springfield, VA, 4.5" reflector, S=7) observed four glowing spots on 
     the Moon during a lunar eclipse (including Aristarchus). At 23:50UT 
     Aristarchus was an oval shape with no details seen. It had a ray 
     extending from the south west rim (normal). The north rim was slightly 
     blue and the south west rim very very slightly red. At 23:55UT it was 
     clearing and details showed. At 00:02UT it was clear. Sketches were 
     provided. Cameron comments that the colours fit Fitton's predictions on 
     spectral dispersion in our atmosphere from atmospheric inversions. The 
     brightness measued was 10+ and normal should be 9, and the plain is 
     4.5. The Moon's altitude at the LeCroy site was 45 deg. The Cameron

     On 1989 Aug 17 at UT 01:02-04:20 G. Kolvos (Thesaloniki, Greece, 
     4"reflector) measured (using photometry) that although there was a 
     gradual fade over the Moon as the eclipse progressed, there was a 2"% 
     rise in brightness of Aristarchus.Graphs were submitted and photos. 
     A.C. Cook supplied CCD images and CCD photometry. A photograph by 
     Conway (Sun Prarie, WI, USA) at the start of the eclipse reveal a

     spots on the Moon during a lunar eclipse (including Aristarchus). At 
     23:50UT 3 of these patches emerged from the dark and appeared as bright 
     spots compared to other craters "Älbedo=10+". At 23:55UT a ray appeared 
     out of the north east rim of menelaus (Normal?). It appeared just 
     before the artea emerged and increased in brightness. At 23:58UT it 
     decreased and continued to do so. The north east edge of Menelaus 
     appeared very dark at the point that the ray was extending from SW edge 
     (a ridge there) and apperared to obscure features along its path 
     (Albedo=9). The Albedos of Manilius and Delambre were 8.5 at 00:05UT. 
     At 00:05UT the rays were still apparent but seemed to have returned to 
     normal. Details became apparent in all 3 features. The Cameron 1978

     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.

     just north of the centre of Mare Tranquilitatis. Some of these flashes 
     were of a duration of seconds whilst others were several minutes. 
     Altogether ~20 flashes were seen, and not in the same place. "5 small 
     star-like points could be located - and there were lots of craterlets". 
     The spots were "lined up E-W at N of 10 deg latitude." Colour was not 
     visible on these nor variations. Apparently the observer had seen this

     x260) saw at 01:25UT an unmistakable red-orange glow on the south and 
     south-east rim with the "Spur". Apparently Chapman (Kent, UK) detected 
     it easily. At 01:33UT the colour was barely visible. No TLP alert was 
     issued because the souther edge of Mons Pico also exhibited a hint of 
     colour, and anyway the seeing conditions were poor. Despite this no 
     other features revealed colour. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=446 and the

     seeing conditions, saw a misty light on the dark limb (similar to 
     Cameron's 1978 catalog TLP 239). The effect had narrowed down on the 
     30th. Cameron comments : "old moon in new moon's arms?". Cameron 1978 
     catalog TLP ID=242 and weight=1. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Dec-30 UT 15:36-17:11 Ill=19% Olbers observed by Moseley_R on 1983-6-14

     On 1983 Jun 14 at UT22:10-23:15 R. Mosely (Coventry, UK, 3" 
     refractor, x38, seeing IV-V) observed a limb brightening near 
     Olbers, though the cdrater itself was not visible in Earthshine. 
     By 22:30 the glow seemed to spread a little vurther to the 
     north. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Dec-30 UT 15:36-17:11 Ill=19% Pythagoras observed by Moseley_R on 1983-6-14

     On 1983 Jun 14 at UT22:10-23:15 R. Mosely (Coventry, UK, 3" 
     refractor, x38, seeing IV-V) observed a limb brightening from 
     the vicinity of Pythagoras to the north pole cusp. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Dec-30 UT 15:36-15:59 Ill=19% Aristarchus observed by Cook_AC on 1991-1-19

     On 1991 Jan 29 at UT17:34-17:52 A.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, 20cm reflector 
     + image intensified CCD camera, transparency moderate to very poor) 
     observed that Aristarchus was fainter than a nearby magnitude 7.3 star 
     (SAO 146315) and may have varied in brightness and size. However the 
     image intensifier output was quite grainy. No obvious signs of impact 
     flashes or cosmic rays seen during a visual inspection of the video 
     tape recorded. Foley commented that from UT 18:53-19:10 the Earthshine 
     was strong with the naked eye and Aristarchus was bright as expected. 
     The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=418 and weight=0. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Dec-30 UT 15:36-16:21 Ill=19% Aristarchus observed by Cook_AC on 1991-1-19

     On 1991 Jan 29 at UT17:56-18:01 A.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, 20cm reflector 
     + image intensified CCD camera, transparency moderate to very poor) 
     observed that Aristarchus was fainter than a nearby magnitude 7.3 star 
     (SAO 146315) and may have varied in brightness and size. However the

2019-Dec-30 UT 15:36-15:59 Ill=19% Grimaldi observed by Cook_AC on 1991-1-19

     On 1991 Jan 29 at UT17:34-17:52 A.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, 20cm reflector 
     + image intensified CCD camera, transparency moderate to very poor) 
     observed that a bright spot near Griomaldi appeared to vary in 
     brightness - however a possible explanation was found because the image 
     intensifier was found to vary in sensitivity across its imaging 
     surface. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=418 and weight=0. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=1.

2019-Dec-30 UT 15:43-17:11 Ill=19% Proclus observed by Bradley_H on 2008-2-10

     Observer saw a pinpoint of white light almost as bright 
     as Aristarchus. This has been assigned an ALPO/BAA weight
     of 2.


2019-Dec-30 UT 16:28-17:11 Ill=19% Proclus_C observed by Kolovos_G on 1985-5-23

     Proclus C region 1985 May 23 UT 17:41 Photographed by Kolovos (observer 
     from Thessoloniki, Greece, observing site near Bafra Serrain, Greece, 
     4"refractor, seeing excellent) "Observer took a series of expousres on 
     a portable scope of the Moon. On one of them a very bright slightly 
     elliptical spot was seen. Spot was very close to the Proclus C crater. 
     Upon analysis it was claimed that the spot of light had rotated the 
     direction of illumination of shadows in adjacent craters - however 
     subsequent analysis casts doubt on this. Papers on this report
     were published in Icarus. Rast and Maley suggested that it was sun 
     glint off a spinning US ex-military weather satellite that just by 
     chance came across the field of view of the Moon a few tens of seconds 
     around the time of the photographed flash. Was this a coincidence or
     not? If it were a satellite sun-glint then the satellite would have to 
     be tumbling incredibly fast in order for the flash to be so sharp in 
     the photograph - so the satellite explanation is not completely 100% 
     confirmed." The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=273 and the weight=5. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2019-Dec-30 UT 16:58-17:11 Ill=19% Aristarchus observed by Barcroft on 1949-5-2

     In 1949 May 02 at UT 03:30-04:00 Barcroft (Madera, CA, USA, 10" 
     reflector, x96) observed in Aristarchus crater, in Earthshine, a 
     dull glow -- silvery phosphorescence.This was not visible for 30 
     min prior. Cameron comments that this is a confirmation of 
     Wilkins TLP from a few hours earlier? The Cameron 1978 catalog 
     ID=519 and weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     refractor, seeing II, transpaency excellent) saw som every large 
     variations in the brightness of Aristarchus whereas other 
     features in Earthshine remained stable. Aristarchus was seen to 
     be blue/violet. ALPO/BAA weight=2.
