2018-Oct-01 UT 00:00-00:12 Ill=65% Montes_Spitzbergen observed by Madej_P on 1980-10-30

     On 1980 Oct 30 at UT03:19-03:41 P. Madej (Huddersfield, UK, 158mm f/4 
     reflector, seeing I-II, and transparency very good. Wratten 15 (yellow) 
     and Wratten 35 (purple) used. No spurious colour seen). At 03:19UT, the 
     observer noted that Mons Spitzbergen looked sharper at x52. At x72 
     bright flashes of a bright lunar gray to a light orange colour seen. 
     BAA Lunar Section TLP team alerted. At 03:32UT a yellow filter used and 
     the flashes were better seen, one flash approximately 20-30 sec apart. 
     At 03:31UT Madej used a purple filter and could not see Mons 
     Spitzbergen but did see the flashes (45-60 sec apart). cameron 2006 
     catalog TLP ID=118 and weight=3. ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2018-Oct-01 UT 00:00-01:53 Ill=65% Plato observed by Butler_FC on 1980-10-30

     Plato 1980 Oct 30 UT 05:00-0704 Observed by F.C. Butler (SW 
     London, UK, seeing III, but worsening (but not as bad as IV) 
     towards the end of the observing period, transparency 100% 
     clear, 22cm Newtonian reflector, x144, x185). The floor seemed 
     quite devoid of detail, apart from a vague mottling seen during 
     the briefest moments of best seeing conditions. At the start of 
     the observing period he could just glimpse the central craterlet 
     at x185, but could not be sure. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2018-Oct-01 UT 05:11-05:12 Ill=64% Tycho observed by Moseley_R on 1983-8-30

     Tycho 1983Aug30 UT 00:15-00:18 R. Moseley (Coventry, UK, 6" 
     f/10 reflector, x60, transparency very good, seeing III, 
     improving with altitude) attention initially caught by the 
     impression of a rosy colouration along the NW crest and outer 
     wall. For perhaps 2-3 min this persisted - before fading 
     entirely. The observer felt that the cause may have been 
     psysiological - or short-lived spurious colour. However 
     interestingly nearby craters did not show the effect. A 
     sketch was made over a longer time span 00:15-00:40UT. 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     On 1981 Oct 21 at UT13:40-13:45 D. Louderback (South Bend, WA, USA, 
     10" reflector) observed a cloud on the north east quadrant of 
     Aristarchus crater, and also covered the bright spot on the east wall 
     (Cameron says that the east wall bright spot is Bartlett's "EWBS".

2018-Oct-07 UT 05:01-05:20 Ill=5% S_Pole observed by Hill_H on 1985-9-12

     Southern cusp obseved by H.Hill (UK) on 1985 Sep 12 UT0435-0455. 
     Solar Selenographic colongitude=241.3. Observer saw an extremely 
     attenuated cusp extending well beyonf the Moon's prime meridian. 
     There were also dusky ill-defined stips along the Earthlit limb 
     nearby. 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-Oct-13 UT 16:11-16:51 Ill=22% W_Limb observed by Hvidore on 1972-4-17 *

     On 1972 Apr 17 at UT 20:10-20:45 Hvidore (Denmark, 2.5" refractor, x58, 
     x100, seeing=good) noted a brightening of the dark limb between 
     Hercynian mountains and Cleostratus crater. Thought that it was due to 
     atmospheric disturbance. Cameron says similar to other reports e.g. No. 
     1156. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1330 and weight=1. The ALPO/BAA

2018-Oct-16 UT 16:05-16:08 Ill=49% Theophilus observed by Marshall_KP on 1982-9-24 *

     In 1982 Sep 24 at 22:45-23:40 K. Marshall (Medellin, Columbia) saw in 
     Theophilus an obscuration on the south west wall close to Cyrillus and 
     furthermore it had a red / mauve colouration (seen best in a 12mm Ortho 
     eyepiece). Through a Wratten 15 yellow filter the region was quite 
     bright. At23:40UT the obscuration faded. There was plenty of detail in 
     the region between Theophilus and Cyrils. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=

     to forest fire pollution - Moon looks red, USA, location: Mill 
     Creek, WA) observed several pin point-like orange flashes of 
     light occur (2-5 sec duration each and static wrt the Moon's 
     surface) across the bright illuminated side of the Moon with the 
     naked eye. Other much fainter, almost instantaneous sparkles 
     were seen. The brightest flash seen was of 5 sec duration. 
     Switching to binoculars (15x45, another fainter one was seen 
     too. Binouculars were handed to wife, who also confirmed similar

2018-Oct-20 UT 19:26-23:22 Ill=85% Aristarchus observed by Louderback_D on 1982-9-29 *

     On 1982 Sep 29 at UT 05:52UT D. Louderback (South Bend, WA, USA, 8" 
     reflector, x240) saw approximately 7-8 diameters from Aristarchus (72W, 
     15N) a star-like point on the dark side - uncertain if this weas on the 
     limb or inside the disk of the Moon. Cameron 2006 catalog ID=185 and 
     weight=1. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Oct-20 UT 19:45-21:40 Ill=85% Plato observed by Barker_R on 1938-3-13

     On 1938 Mar 13 at UT 04:00-06:00 Barker (Chestnut, England, UK) noted a 
     slight reddish colour in Plato. However Fox (Newark, UK, 6.5" 
     reflector, x240) saw none on the south east wall, but instead saw a 
     yellowish glow on the southern floor at the same time (confirmation?). 
     Appearently Fox saw the same effect on Apr 10, 11, and May 8-11, then 
     on June 8-10. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=432 and the weight=5. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2018-Oct-20 UT 21:20-22:33 Ill=85% Herodotus observed by Fabian on 1989-5-17

     On 1989 May 17 at UT Fabian (Chicago, IL, USA, 4" reflector, x35-x50 
     and 8" reflector) noted a pale blue colouration in the ridges situated 
     west of Aristarchus and north of Herodotus craters, in the vicinity of 
     the terminator (and on the night side). Aristarchus itself did not have 
     any colour. Īt was only area with such color though there were numerous 
     others of similar elevation and relation to term. The colour was seen 
     in a 4" Cassegrain telescope, but when an 8" reflector was used at 
     02:30UT, even with the same eyepieces. Cameron comments that maybe the 
     larger telescope spread the colour out? The sketch that Fabian 
     suplied, suggested to Cameron that the TLP was located at Herodotus, 
     and the ridge was part of Schroter's valley - Cobra Head. The Cameron 
     2006 catalog ID=364 and the weight=2. The ALPO/BAA weight=2. 


2018-Oct-21 UT 17:56-18:17 Ill=91% Aristarchus observed by Herschel_W on 1783-5-13

     Two small conical mountains, near last 4th May eruption,
     close to the third one that he had seen before, but not
     these two. They were not on any map.


2018-Oct-21 UT 17:56-19:23 Ill=91% Langrenus observed by Baum_R on 1947-8-28

     SE of Langrenous 1947 Aug 28 UT 21:00? Observed by Baum 
     (Chester, England) A long mountain mass, on limb to the SE of 
     Langrenus crater, had a decidedly bluish cast. To the north, on 
     the limb,  were several ordinary peaks appearing in profile and 
     some were sharp and pointed. NASA catalog ID=498. NASA catalog 
     weight=3. ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Oct-21 UT 18:36-21:33 Ill=91% Aristarchus observed by Brook_C on 2006-6-8 *

     On 2006 Jun 08 at UT 20:30-20:45 C.Brook (Plymouth, UK, 60mm refractor 
     x75) found that Aristarchus was "shining exceptionally bright during 
     daylight on a gibous moon". The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Oct-21 UT 19:23-21:07 Ill=91% Proclus observed by Bartlett on 1950-7-27

     Proclus 1950 Jul 27 UT 02:56 Observed by Bartlett (Baltimore, 
     MD, USA) described in the NASA catalog as: "C.p. of Proc.

2018-Oct-21 UT 19:35-21:32 Ill=91% Aristarchus observed by Gray_R on 2002-9-19

     On 2002 Sep 19 at UT 06:31-07:22 R. Gray (Winnemucca, NV, USA) found 
     that the bright areas of the crater floor, and the east facing part of 
     the west rim, were brighter noticeably in red (Wratten 25) or white 
     light, than in blue (Wratten 38A). The observer suspects that the 
     apparent TLP was more to do with the relative densities of the filters 
     and the contrast in Aristarchus than a real event. This was partly 
     confirmed after checks on other craters, though it did not work 
     everywhere. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Oct-21 UT 19:52-21:47 Ill=91% Aristarchus observed by Greenacre on 1963-10-30

     Aristarchus 1963 Oct 30 UT 01:50-02:15 Observed by Greenacre and 
     Barr (Flagstaff, AZ, USA, 24" Clark Refractor) observed 2 ruby 
     red spots - one just to the SW of the cobra's Head and the other 
     on a highland area east of Vallis Schroteri. A pink colour 
     formed coverting the SW rim of Aristarchus. Effects present with 
     or without Yellow Wratten 15 filer. Similar effects checked for 
     elsewhere on other craters but not seen. So presumed not to have 
     been due to chromatic aberation or astmospheric dispersion. 
     Effecta not seen in 12" refractor, but this may have been a 
     resolution issue. The NASA catalog ID No. is #778. The NASA 
     catalog weight is 5 (highly reliable). ALPO/BAA weight=4.


2018-Oct-21 UT 20:22-21:15 Ill=91% Oceanus_Procellarum observed by Wildey on 1962-12-9

     In 1962 Dec 09 at UT 07:36 Wildey and Pohn (Mt Wilson, CA, USA, 60" 
     reflector) observed that Oceanus Procellarum was 1.13 magnitudes 
     brighter than normal. Observation at sunrise and is abnormal if area 
     measured was mare. If it were an east facing wall it would be normal. 
     The Cameron 1978 catalog weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

2018-Oct-21 UT 20:28-21:21 Ill=91% Aristarchus observed by Wildey on 1962-12-9

     In 1962 Dec 09 at UT 07:42 Wildey and Pohn (Mt Wilson, CA, USA, 60" 
     reflector) observed that Aristarchus was 0.80 magnitudes (x2) fainter 
     than average for this age (photometric measurement) Vmag=3.80, average=
     3.0. The Cameron 1978 catalog weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Oct-21 UT 20:30-21:46 Ill=91% Langrenus observed by Moore_P on 1992-2-16

     On 1992 Feb 16 at UT 01:05-01:35 P. Moore (Selsey, UK, 12.5" 
     reflector, seeing=III) found the north rim area to be both very 
     bright and misty - though he did not think it to be a TLP but 
     wanted it to be recorded, just in case. The Cameron 2006 catalog 
     ID=440 and the weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Oct-21 UT 20:40-22:37 Ill=91% Prinz observed by Gray_R on 2002-9-19

     On 2002 Sep 19 at UT07:36-08:06 R. Gray (Winnemucca, NV, USA) found 
     that Prinz was more difficlut to see through a blue Wratten 38A filter 
     than through a red Wratten 25 filter. However he suspects that it might 
     have something to do with the unequal (to his eyes) transmission 
     density differences between either filter. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2018-Oct-21 UT 21:53-00:35 Ill=92% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1975-2-23 *

     On 1975 Feb 23 at UT 18:00-00:24 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK, 12 inch 
     reflector, seeing Good), noticed that Aristarchus was a slate-grey 
     tinged with blue, and abnormally bright, fading at UT 18:47, and 
     decreased activity at UT20:45 after a cloudy period. Blue was seen on 
     the northern wall at UT19:00, but at 19:10 no colour, but instead an 
     obscuration. All normal from UT 21:04-21:46 according to Foley. At 
     UT19:00 G. Amery (Reading, UK, 10 inch reflector) noted shadowy grey 
     near the shadow under the south wall, indistinct small area, no colour. 
     At UT 20:00 activity increased. Colour negative fr. 150-300x till 21:10 
     (Hunt, Cambridge, UK, 2.5" refractor, seeing Poor-Very good). Negative 
     fr. 20:20-21:00 in bad seeing, and very good seeing at 200x all 
     negative (colour blink filters). From 23:45-00:20UT (Fitton, 
     Lancashire, UK, 8" reflector). Turner of Sussex, UK with an 8" 
     reflector, observed as well. (confirm. of activity earlier & neg. 
     later). Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1397 and weight=5. ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     Torricelli B 2002 Oct 18 UTC 20:56-21:59 Observer: G.North (UK, 8" 
     reflector, x134, Seeing Antoniadi IV, Transparency good) - thought that 
     Torricelli B was perhaps a little brighter than expected, especially 
     when compared to Moltke and Censorinus based upon past recollection of 
     relative brightnesses at this colongitude). Slight bluish tint seen as 
     well. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Oct-21 UT 23:02-23:57 Ill=92% Aristarchus observed by Greenacre on 1963-10-30

     Barr (Flagstaff, AZ, USA, 24" Clark Refractor) a violet or 
     purple-blue colour formed beyond the NW of Aristarchus. ALPO/BAA 
     weight=2. This followed an earlier observation that night of two 
     red spots and a pink glow.


2018-Oct-21 UT 23:28-23:57 Ill=92% Plato observed by Hobdell on 1981-10-11

     On 1981 Oct 11 at UT 00:05-02:00 B.Hobdell (St Petersberg, FL, USA, 4" 
     refractor, S=3 and T=5) observed a brightening on the floor of Plato. 4 
     bright spots appeared and vanished and there was a fith one in the 
     centre that was very bright at times. At UT 00:14 the central spot 
     became bright then was "followed by a haze permeating entire floor, 
     heaviest in the northern quadrant. Came from 2 S peaks or white spots, 
     shaped like a boomerang extending to presumed c.p. (c.c ?). White 
     flashed at 0052 from it cloud changed shape - spread N. At 0136 
     brightening from c.c. area 0419 dissipated. All white spots seen at

2018-Oct-22 UT 23:15-01:09 Ill=96% 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.

     00:34UT colours were gone. At 00:35UT blue was on Aristarchus and the 
     area was bright, but was black in a red filter. At 00:53UT the features 
     were clear and the colour gone and the brightness had decreased to 9. 
     Cameron comments that the colour was not due to temp. inversion because 
     of being dark in the red filter, implying a medium). The Cameron 1978

     reflector x250-360, and seeing III) saw a strong orange colour on the 
     south wall and floor of Aristarchus. He suspected it to be spurious 
     colour but could not detect colours on any other craters. The colour
     remained but at 18:12 UT he suspected a trace on colour on Mons Pico 
     but was not sure. However he reported it to the TLP coordinator of the 
     BAA Lunar Section. The orange in Aristarchus gradually faded and had 
     almost vanished by 00:20UT when seeing was too bad to continue 
     observing. At 02:30UT he was able to re-observe again and there was 
     still a very very slight hint of orange in Aristarchus - but he 
     comments that if he had not been looking for it he might not have 
     noticed. ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     of detail in the north west wall, especially in red light, but also 
     slightly in blue light too. By 22:48 there was activity on the crater 
     floor i.e. the four bright spots were visible in white light but not in 
     red. In blue the central spot was seen and there were dark radial 
     streaks to the south wall and south east. At 22:50 there was a loss of 
     detail. Other craters were normal. At 23:08 the floor was dark in red, 
     but some details were visible in blue. the effect had finished by 
     23:35. At21:34 J-H Robinson found Plato to be normal and no blinks, 
     though floor clearer in red than in blue, however the floor detail had 
     gone by 21:57. Blair suspected a dusty patch in north of Plato, 
     especially in red light. at 21:57 and it started spreading at 21:13, 
     then east at 21:15 and then north. Though it faded at 21:25 but was 
     back again at 21:35, and Moon blink colour filters still gave a

     Aristarchus 1987 June 14 UT 04:43-08:00 Observed by Curtis, Jacobs, and 
     Manske (Yanna Research Station, Carl A. Fosmark Jr. Memorial 
     Observatory, Madison Astronomical Society, WI, USA, 17" f4.5 Dobsonian 
     and the 8" f10 SCT Celestron) "On the night 13/14  June  11:42 P.M. to 
     3:00 A.M. local time or 14 June 04:43 to 8:00 UT. Three people 
     witnessed this event and all three of them observed with three 
     different telescopes to rule out instrumental aberration. These three 
     pople were members of the Madison Astronomical. The three observers 
     involved are Keith Curtis, Tom Jacobs and Robert Manske. Keith Curtis 
     took detailed notes of the event as he observed it. The observations 
     were made at the Yanna Research Station, Carl A. Fosmark Jr.
     Memorial Observatory of the Madison Astronomical Society following the 
     annual picnic. This is MAS dark sky site and is located near Brooklyn, 
     Wisconsin. As they were observing the night sky they saw the Moon 
     rising and noted a strong orange color due to atmospheric effects. 
     Approximately 1/2 hour after the Moon rise they decided to turn one of 
     the telescopes on it. It was at 04:43 UT, it was noted by Keith Curtis 
     that as the Moon rose it began to loose the horizon color effect and 
     return to its normal color, but he found that the red color was not 
     leaving the crater Aristarchus. At first they all thought this was an 
     atmospheric effect but decided it was a real event since they detected  
     a second crater (Euler) showing red color on its rim. Keith Curtis
     said that the red color was very strong on the Western rim of 
     Aristarchus with a strong blue/green or aqua green on the Eastern rim. 
     Keith also reported that the glow opaque enough to prevent viewing of 
     the interior of crater Aristarchus. He said they observed until 3:00 
     A.M. daylight saving time or 8:00 UT. and the red glow was still 
     visible when they ended  their observing session. Robert Manske 
     description of the event was that he saw two craters glowing a strong 
     red and blue giving it a rainbow effect. He said that the red glow was 
     so strong he was unable to see the craters underneath during the entire 
     observing session. Concerning the orientation of the red and blue was 
     on the crater he stated that  he did not remember since he failed to 
     take any notes. Concerning whether there was any difference in 
     appearance when they observed it with the 17" f4.5 Dobsonian and the 
     8" f10 SCT Celestron. He said that he could not detect any difference 
     to the lunar formation or the color on it regardless of which telescope 
     he used. He did mention that as the Moon was rising it had the 
     appearance of one large Maria in the center of the disk. This illusion 
     disappeared as the Moon rose higher into the sky. When talking to Tom 
     Jacobs he said that he remembered that he did not see anything on the 
     Moon until 1/2 hour after Moon rise. He said that he remembered that 
     the entire Aristarchus region had a strong reddish or pinkish color. 
     All three witness all reported variations in the type of color they 
     were seeing. This would indicate that individuals color perception is a 
     major factor during a color event. Keith Curtis saw a very strong 
     coloration around the rim of the craters, where Robert Manske saw the 
     entire region covered by this red and blue coloration and he could not 
     see the interior of the craters underneath. Tom Jacobs reported that 
     the glow covered the entire crater but he could see the crater 
     underneath it. The Moon never achieved a height greater than 21 degrees 
     so it could be that what the observers saw was caused by the Earths 
     atmosphere. Further details can be found on the following web site:

2018-Oct-27 UT 20:16-21:59 Ill=88% Theophilus observed by Mobberley_M on 1981-10-16

     On 1981 Oct 26 UT 20:44-21:14 M. Mobberley (Bury St Edmunds, UK, 
     14" Cassegrain, seeing III) noticed an ~100deg wide fan on the 
     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 
     colour was reported. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     Pico and other mountains did not show a similar effect. "It was seen 
     only in viol. filter tho once seemed blurred in red. No changes, 
     dimming was like a veil of mist covering the mtn - swiftly, then

2018-Oct-29 UT 21:59-23:39 Ill=69% Plato observed by Mobberley_M on 1981-10-18

     On 1981 Oct 18 UT 22:14022:16 M.Mobberley (Bury St Edmunds, UK, 
     14" Cassegrain, seeing variable, transparency misty) found that 
     the central craterlet on the floor of Plato was not visible, 
     despite it being visible under similar colongitudes on other 
     nights. Might be due to observing conditions, but observer 
     suspicous. At 02:08 the observer comments that the central 
     craterlet was ellusive, and at 02:42, though it is uncertain 
     whether they regarded it as suspicous still at this stage?

2018-Oct-31 UT 03:17-03:39 Ill=56% 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?
