2019-Aug-09 UT 10:20-10:40 Ill=68% Plato observed by Foley_PW on 1975-4-19

     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 
     north east floor blurred and slightly blue from 22:45-23:00UT.

     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.

     reflector) observed a large bright (intensity 6.5) oval area on 
     near the central floor. According to Ricker and Kelsey (ALPO 
     selected area coordinators) this is unusual. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2019-Aug-12 UT 10:16-13:13 Ill=92% 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.

2019-Aug-12 UT 11:22-11:26 Ill=92% 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 
     ID=445 and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

2019-Aug-12 UT 13:21-14:41 Ill=92% 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.

     On 1980 Sep 22 at UT05:00? D. Louderback (South Bend, WA, USA, 8" 
     reflector, x140 and 2.5" refractor) observed in Promitorium Agarum that 
     one of his pre-designated points, called "A", through to "C and "D" was 
     at least 5 brightness points brighter in red than in blue light. The 
     reverse was true on Sep 25th. Tonight the red seemed to be on a narrow 
     strip on the western edge. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=109 and the 
     weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2019-Aug-13 UT 12:01-12:36 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 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

     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.

     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

     In 1962 Sep 16 at UT08:05 Wildey, Pohn (Mt Wilson, CA, USA, 60" 
     reflector) Taruntius faded from Vmag-3.21 to 4.04, a 0.82 difference in 
     magnitude in 2.5 hours - a photometric measurement. The average 
     magnitude for this age is 4.03, so therefore the crater had brightened 
     by two times above normal. The Cameron 1978 catalogID=769 and the 
     weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     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 
     weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     No other features revealed colour apart from Aristarcus, where a TLP 
     was going on. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=446 and the weight=0. The

2019-Aug-17 UT 20:21-20:23 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.

     (previously completely shadow filled). The needle like shadows started 
     to be indistiguishable through the sunlight (dawn on Earth). The cloud 
     like feature was washed out by daylight at 11:48UT and conformed to the

     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.
