2018-Dec-01 UT 00:00-00:19 Ill=39% Copernicus observed by Firsoff on 1955-5-15

     Copernicus 1955 May 15 UTC 03:30 Observed by Firsoff (Somerset, UK, 
     6.5" reflector x70) "Almost as bright in violet filter as Aristarchus" 
     NASA catalog weight=4. NASA catalog ID #592.


2018-Dec-01 UT 00:00-00:19 Ill=39% Aristarchus observed by George on 1965-10-18

     Aristarchus 1965 Oct 18 UTC 07:30-07:36 Observed by George, Dervas 
     (Huntsville, Alabama, 20" reflector x125) "Color with intermittent 
     displays, detected with Trident MB device. Observers dubious. NASA 
     catalog weight=2 (low). NASA catalog ID #907.


2018-Dec-01 UT 01:06-02:03 Ill=38% Plato observed by Morgan_P on 2009-6-16

     On 2009 Jun 16 at UT 03:20-03:40 P. Morgan (UK, 30.5cm reflector, x400, 
     seeing=6/10 and transparency=5/5) observed a large diffuse ashen-like 
     effect over the shadow filled floor of Plato. The effect was lighter 
     towards the south. Observer checked the effect with both left and right 
     eyes and it remained the same. Unusually no shadow spires from rim 
     moutain peaks were seen. A check for colour in the region effected 
     revealed none. As time progressed, terrestrial twilight encroached. A 
     sketch was made. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Dec-01 UT 01:25-02:03 Ill=38% Plato observed by Hobdell on 1981-10-21

     On 1981 Oct 21 at UT 11:35-11:48 B. Hobdell (St Petersberg, FL, USA, 
     10" reflector) found that the south peak of Plato on floor glowed white 
     at 11:35UT, then a milky shade spread all aorind Plato's floor 
     (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 
     "white area except a tail that reached the cetre of Plato" Spurious 
     colour was not seen. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=157 and weight=3.


2018-Dec-01 UT 00:00-01:36 Ill=38% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

2018-Dec-01 UT 22:41-00:36 Ill=28% Aristarchus observed by Moseley_R on 1983-8-3

     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.


2018-Dec-01 UT 22:42-00:05 Ill=28% Aristarchus observed by Gilheany on 1965-8-21

     On 1989 Apr 09 at 00:00? R.Horton (N.Scituate, RI, USA, 6" reflector)
     found Aristarchus (and Kepler) to be much less bright than Copernicus. 
     Photographs show this. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=359a and the weight=
     3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Dec-10 UT 12:40-13:06 Ill=9% Copernicus observed by Horton_R on 1989-4-9

     On 1989 Apr 09 at UT 00:00? R. Horton (N. ScN. Scituate, RI, USA, 6" 
     reflector) took an Earthshine photograph that revealed Copernicus to be 
     brighter than Aristarchus and Kepler. Cameron comments that usually 
     Aristarchus is the brighter and thought it a bit odd because Copernicus 
     should have been less visible, being nearer the terminator3 The Cameron 
     2006 catalog ID=359a and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Dec-10 UT 12:40-13:07 Ill=9% Tycho observed by Darling_D on 1989-4-9

     reflector, 3" refractor, S=9/10 and T=6) observed the central peak of 
     Tycho in Earthshine and that the crater "glowed". However Earthshine 
     was exceptionally bright tonight. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=359b and 
     weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Dec-10 UT 13:20-13:35 Ill=9% Aristarchus observed by Darling_D on 1989-4-9

     On 1989 Apr 09 at 02:13 was seen to be not very bright in binoculars, 
     despite visibility of Earthshine in general as being exceptional. 
     Darling confirmed this at 02:31UT, though it was quite bright in a 
     17" reflector,but Herodotus could barely be seen. Weier claimed to be 
     able to see Aristarchus with the naked eye. At 02:08 the brightness was 
     found to be 5.0 for several measurments. The observing team ware from 
     the Maddison Asgtronomical Society, WI, USA. The Cameron 2006 catalog 
     ID=359b and he weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     In 1825 Apr 22 at UT0030 Argelander (England) and Gobel (Koburg, 
     Germany) saw the following in the vicinity of Aristarchus: "Points of 
     light in center. In low magn. appeared as a small star, somewhat 
     scintillating. At higher magn. became larger & diffused. (date 1824 ?

     Om 1990 Mar 01 at UT 19:05-19:45 M. Holmes (Rockdale, England, UK) saw 
     a blue blinking spot near Sirsallis A until 19:15UT after which it 
     faded and "haloed, loss of detail". The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=392 and 
     weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=1. Note that in Cameron's catalog the UT
     given is ambiguous as 3 UTs (00:59-02:20, 18:30-18:50, 19:35-19:45) are 
     given for 3 features (Lambert, Aristarchus and Sirsalis A) and it is 
     not clear which is which, but it is assumed that Holmes saw the 
     Sirsalis A event at around 19:15UT?

     weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2018-Dec-13 UT 12:41-12:42 Ill=32% Daniell observed by Price_M on 1979-12-24

     M. Price of Camberley, UK noticed that an area in relation
     to the central area of the floor could not be resolved. Averted
     vision was used, but this did not help to resolve detail. The crater
     was close to the terminator and was in general sharply in focus
     apart from the suspect area. No spurious colour seen. Sketch
     supplied.P. Foley wonders if the effect was due to the resolution
     limit of Price's scope? Cameron 2006 extension catalog ID=78
     and weight=2. ALPO/BAA weight=2. 6" reflector x64 and x120.
     Seeing=III-IV and Transparency=good.


2018-Dec-13 UT 12:41-13:11 Ill=32% Gassendi observed by Williamson_P on 1990-3-2

     On 1990 Mar 02 at UT 19:35-19:50 P. Williamson (Shropshire, UK, 14" 
     reflector, x178, seeing=good and steady) noticed a yellow-orange glow 
     in Gassendi (from a small illumnated crater?) in Earthshine at 19:35UT 
     and by 19:40UT it had become very bright white, afterwhich it 
     completely faded within 10 minutes. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=393 and 
     the weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2018-Dec-13 UT 13:23-13:54 Ill=32% Mare_Crisium observed by Kidger_M on 1975-3-18

     On 1975 Mar 18 at UT17:30 M.Kidger (Winterbourne Down, Bristol, UK, 
     60mm refractor, x36, very good conditions with a very sharp image and 
     the sky was almost perfectly clear apart from a very few small clouds). 
     In Mare Crisium it was observed that only a ray of Proclus could be 
     seen to cross the floor - normally there are at least four craters 
     visible inside mare Crisium on good nights and at least one being 
     visible under bad conditions. So despite it being very clear and the 
     image quality being good, the observer found it odd that no craters 
     were visible on the floor of mare Crisium. This is a BAA Lunar Section 
     report. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Dec-13 UT 13:40-15:17 Ill=32% Theophilus observed by Beaumont_S on 1993-12-19

     On 1993 Dec 19 at UT 16:00-17:00 S. Beaumont (Cambridge, UK, 12" 
     reflector, x230) observed in Theophilus that the "c.p. > reddish brown 
     tint to SW (on peak?)" but suspected that it was probably spurious 
     colour, however no colour was seen later. The ALPO/BAA catalog ID=469 
     and the weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Dec-13 UT 14:25-16:12 Ill=32% W_Limb observed by Webb_TW on 1855-6-20

     In 1855 Jun 20 at UT 21:00 T.W. Webb (England) observed a trace of 
     twilight (Cameron says also seen by Gruithuisen, Henry and others at 
     times). Webb gives a low weight to his own observation, saying "for 
     want of better optical means". The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=130 and 
     weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1. 


2018-Dec-13 UT 14:57-16:18 Ill=32% Atlas observed by Fehring on 1965-10-30

     using a 2.4" refractor x88, seeing very good) saw a fuzzy area -- 
     variations in shape and distinctness, seen in an area east of Atlas 
     crater. A drawing was made. It was noted that no other area had a 
     similar effect. Cameron 1978 catalog ID=909 and weight=3. ALPO/BAA

2018-Dec-15 UT 12:42-15:17 Ill=50% Proclus observed by Foley_PW on 1988-7-22 *

     On 1988 Jul 22 at UT 02:15-04:00 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK, 11" 
     reflector) made a sketch of a dark area of the (East) floor of 
     Proclus that revealed a large anomalous dark region - there 
     should be no shade here when the sun is at an altitude of above 
     50 deg!. BAA lunar section archives reveal similar dark shadings 
     - however on this night it was a different shaped dark area. The 
     appearance was confirmed by several observers. Foley reported 
     that the region affected stretched from Proclus to Theophilus. 
     The TLP was seen in the USA too by D, Darling as early as 
     01:31UT and by others on his TLP network - brightness 
     measurements of the "c.p." were 3.5 and the remainder of the 
     floor was 5.5. However the observers did not all agree on the 
     same position for this dark area. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=

     though this does not show up in later CCD images. Jarwaski saw another 
     nearby Mt very bright as well. This has been assigned an ALPO/BAA 
     weight of 2, though i suspect it is just normal for Pico to get quite 
     bright at sunrise.


2018-Dec-15 UT 14:22-15:48 Ill=51% Linne observed by Schmidt_J on 1866-10-16

     In 1866 Oct 16 at UT 23:00 Schmidt (Athens, Greece, 7"refractor) 
     observed that Linne crater had disappeared and been replaced by a white 
     patch with a small hill or craterlet. White part seems to increase in 
     size. Cameron says probably not a TLP. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=145 
     and the weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Dec-15 UT 14:25-16:15 Ill=51% Plato observed by Markov on 1918-5-18

     Plato 1918 May 20 UT 18:00? Observed by Markov (Russia) "Brightness in 
     shadow of the light sector & 1 spot" NASA catalog weight=3 (average).

2018-Dec-15 UT 14:26-15:28 Ill=51% Montes_Apenninus observed by Armitage_J on 2008-4-13

     Patches of brightness seen in the area between craters Aratus and Joy.
     Seemed to the observer to be perhaps slightly brighter than one would
     expect - the observer thought that their observation only barely
     constitured a TLP but decided to send the report in anyway. This
     has been assigned an ALPO/BAA weight of 1.


2018-Dec-15 UT 14:28-16:01 Ill=51% Alphonsus observed by Cook_AC on 1982-7-28

     On 1982 Jul 28 at UT20:38-20:48UT A.C. Cook (Frimley, Surrey, UK, 12" 
     reflector, seeing IV-V, some spurious colour prsent) observed that the 
     central peak of Alphonsus was brighter in red light than in blue, so 
     much so that at the start of the session the peak could hardly be seen 
     in blue light. The central peak varied in brightness in red light but 
     not in white light. The central peak of arzachel was brighter than that 
     of Alphonsus in white light but had no colour - Arzachel's central peak 
     did however appear to fade in brightness over time (or was it Alphonsus 
     getting brighter?). Cameron 2006 catalog ID=177 and weight=3. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     less so (?) and the shape changed. When viewed through a green filter 
     it was less distinct. "Change with two other filters. Polarizer gave a 
     circular shape with a knot on SE side & W58 in White." The measured 
     brightness of Proclus was 9 on three sides and 8.5 on its west rim. The 
     floor was 5.5, but the dark spot was 4. Alphonsus, Bullialdus,

     were two whitish semi-circular tide like marks enclosing two 
     dark patches adjoining the interior west wall The observer was 
     puzzled because if these were two masses of spawning foot

     A.S.Williams of West Brighton, UK, using a 5.25" Calver, x150 and 
     definition fairly good. Observer noticed that the Mare seemed covered 
     with a close network of innumerable streaks, and spotted with countless 
     numbers of light specks, so that it would hardly be possible to 
     delineate them all in one night. The spots and streaks together must 
     have numbered ~1000. The observer had never seen anything like the 
     number of spots and streaks. Peirce A, was not at all easy to se and 
     neighboring spots almost as bright made it difficult to distinguish 
     which one was Peirce A. ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     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.

2018-Dec-19 UT 17:57-19:45 Ill=88% 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.

     (Liverpool, UK 22cm Newtonian, x216, seeing II, transparency 
     good). Observer reports a bright spot, as bright as the 
     central peak in Aristarchus on the NW rim of Herodotus at 
     19:10 (still there at 19:15, but the curious thing was that it 
     was not visible earlier at 18:50? Now there is a bright 
     craterlet here, and the observer doubted if what he had seen 
     was unusual - though we have the rise in brightness o20 
     minutes to account for? The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     Aristarchus 2015 Mar 03 UT 23:58 Brendan Shaw (UK) saw a flash 
     on the NW rim of Aristarchus on his computer screen - the camera 
     was working in the near IR. Seeing was not very good at the 
     time. Unfortunately this flash occurred in between imaging 
     sessions. No other flashes seen, despite looking. The observer 
     considerd the possibility that it might have been a cosmic ray 
     detection, but cannot say for sure. The ALPO/BAA TLP weight=1.

     On 1980 Sep 24 at UT 21:13-23:50 P.Moore (Selsey, UK) at 22:45 saw loss 
     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,

     over and onto the east wall looked unusual. 8 bands were visible, "two 
     on E. wall of c.p. strongest, surrounding collar grey increasing 
     intensely outward. Band at 2 o'clock position was very dark. Bright 
     spot on W. wall at 4 o'clock position." A sketch was made that

     suspected on the eastern edge of Geminus, on the border of the 
     crater filled shadow and the eastern illuminated rim, a 
     brownish, almost speia hue. This extended for a short distance 
     from the floor shadow into the illuminated rim width and spanned 
     from the north to the south of the crater. For a comparison, 
     Cleomedes was checked but nothing unusual was noticed in its 
     shadow. The observer notes that Elger also saw a warm brown or 
     sepia tone. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     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.

2018-Dec-29 UT 01:56-02:19 Ill=54% 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.

     saw a small circular area of grey or white in the dark south end 
     of Copernicus.The area showed up better through a Wratten 15 
     yellow filter, but was not seen at all through a purple Wratten 
     35 filter. P.W. Foley (Kent, UK), confirmed this but thinks that
