2019-Jul-05 UT 20:48-21:02 Ill=13% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

2019-Jul-06 UT 20:13-21:08 Ill=21% Macrobius observed by McLeod on 1938-6-2

     Macrobius 1938 Jun 02 UTC 18:00? Observed by McLeod (England? 5" ? 
     reflector) "Changes in dark areas. (near Proclus where Green saw 
     phenomenom. see #443)" NASA catalog weight=2 (low). NASA catalog ID #
     444.


2019-Jul-06 UT 20:13-20:40 Ill=21% Brenner_F observed by Collins_M on 2012-5-25

     On 2012 May 25 UT 05:35 Brenner F crater was recorded in a larger 
     area image by M. Collins (Palmerstone North, New Zealand, ETX-90 
     with LPI imager (monochrome mode) - seeing not good). He took a 
     sequence of 108 images from 05:35-05:40UT, and in the 65th frame, 
     a light spot, approximately 4 pixels wide can be seen just 
     outside the western illuminated rim of Brenner F. It is not 
     visible in any other frames. The exposure time was 0.125 Sec. 
     Because the western edge of the spot is very sharp, and the rest 
     of the Moon is slightly blurred due to seeing, it is thought that 
     this was most likely a cosmic ray event in the CCD camera - the 4 
     pixel width was perhaps contributed to by the image compression.
     It could also be some bright surface spot that was made invisible 
     most of the time by poor seeing, and then during a brief period
     the atmosphere is sharp enough at that locality to make it 
     visible. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Jul-06 UT 20:32-21:43 Ill=21% S_Pole observed by Masini_R on 2009-1-30

     On 2009 Jan 30 ay 22:35:20UT +/-2 min R. Masini (Perth, Australia) saw 
     a bright clound just west the south pole and along of the southern 
     limb. The effect lasted a few seconds and faded. It was seen with the 
     naked eye. There was a grazing occultation of a 6th magnitude star from 
     this site, however the star would have been in the wrong place at the 
     time of the TLP. The ALPO/BAA weight=2. 


2019-Jul-06 UT 20:51-21:02 Ill=21% Aristarchus observed by Livesey_R on 1966-4-24

     On 1966 Apr 24 at 21:30UT R.Livsey (Scotland, 6" reflector at x275) 
     observed that Aristarchus was "fluorescent" in Earthshine. It is 
     uncertain whether the description of "fluorescent" should be involve 
     this observation being categorized as a TLP, however just for safety it 
     will be assigned an ALPO/BAA weight=1. This was a BAA Lunar Section 
     report.


2019-Jul-06 UT 20:48-21:45 Ill=22% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

     2x brighter than it's surroundsings. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=254 
     and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2. 


2019-Jul-07 UT 20:48-22:22 Ill=33% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

     "Bright area moved 80km/hr towards SSE & expanded as contrast 
     reduced. Corralitos MB did not confirm" NASA catalog weight=3 
     (average). NASA catalog ID #1049. Reports in ALPO/BAA archive 
     mention observations from Edmund Arriola & Robert Moody, Jr.

     Cross 02:25-02:38 (12" f/66 Cass, x400, T=6, S=1.5 to 1") - the 
     latter although seeing low visual activity, apparently according 
     to Harris, took some yellow light photos that showed high 
     activity? ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2019-Jul-08 UT 20:13-20:45 Ill=43% Aristarchus observed by Price_M on 1981-2-10

     On 1981 Feb 10 at UT21:46-21:49 P. Madej (Huddersfield, UK) found a 2nd

     Price (Camberley, UK) at 21:46 and 21:49. North (UK) detected flashes 
     from the central peak. Foley saw Aristarchus as a "translucent glow".

     Torricelli 2011 Dec 31 UT 16:39-17:00 R.Braga (Milan, Italy,

     bright at the start of the observing session but dimmed 
     considerably at around 17:00UT. Observer not sure on the 
     normal appearance of this crater. In view of the seeing 
     conditions and small aperture, this TLP is being given an 
     ALPO/BAA weight of 1.

     Section member (Southam, Warwickshire, UK) found no detail on the floor 
     of Autolycus, despite there being plenty of detail on the floor of

     this stage of illumination. Grego reports that the observation was from 
     a Society for Popular Astronomy member and they described "a 
     homogeneous grey veil over the 20 km floor of the crater". The

     the crater was highly luminous at 21:20, and surrounded by a blue halo that 
     had a darker blue band within it. This craterlet faded over time, and by 21:20

2019-Jul-15 UT 00:20-01:22 Ill=96% Aristarchus observed by Cook_AC on 1987-9-5

     On 1987 Sep 05 at 20:55UT A.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, 90mm questar 
     telescope, x130, seeing III-IV, Moon 16 deg in altitude) observed a 
     dusky dark gray area just north of Herodotus and just south of the 
     Cobra Head. The interior shadow on the east of Herodotus by comparison 
     wad black and distinct. No change was seen when viewed through a 
     rotated polaroid filter. Apparently D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA) 
     was observing at the same time but had better observing conditions and 
     could see detail in this region, suggesting that it was not a TLP. 
     There is no Cameron entry for this report. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     On 1985 May 02 at UT 20:20-20:38 J.D. Cook (Frimley, UK) noted at 20:20 
     found the south rim (and just outside) to be blurred in appearence and 
     there was also a hazy shadow inside the crater. M.C. Cook found a 
     "break in clarity in break on S wall". Miles (UK) also found the south 
     wall blurred in appearance and Foley (Kent, UK) noted that the area was 
     featureless and the 2 craters positions at 1 o'clock high up on the 
     inner wall were obscured", although just north of these was sharp 
     detail. Foley also recorded that the shadow on the east wall was 
     opaque"and that thye inside of Aristarchus was slate/blue in colour and 
     dull, however by 20:28 the crater had brightened by 0.4 steps on 
     Foley's CED device and the missing craterlets were visible again. Jean 
     (Canada, 4" refractor) observed a rose colour intermittently (UT 1948-
     20:58) - however Cameron suspects that this is chromatic aberation.

     lens with Wratten 25 ref filter) took 43 CCD images of the eclipse of 
     the Moon and on one of them at 04:40UT (exposure 0.3 sec) a relatively 
     bright spot appeared in the southern part of Mare Fecunditatis. The 
     spot looks sharper than the rest of the Moon and so might be a cosmic 
     ray? CCD images taken from Washington D.C. by A.C. Cook at this time, 
     do not show this spot, however exposures were at intervals of 0.25 sec 
     and so might have missed this spot if it happened during image readout.

     On 1970 Aug 17 at UT 02:40 Pedler (England) noted that the

     On 1979 Sep 14 at 13:30-14:42 D. Louderback (South Bend, WA, USA, 8" 
     reflector, x146) found that half of the northern rim was "extinguished)

     reflector) "Observing thru polaroid filter, E. (IAU?) wall was invis; 
     but became vis. when filter was rotated, indicating refl. of polarized 
     light. Same area examined since, but no such phenomenon." NASA catalog
