TLP Repeat Illumination/Libration and Earthshine predictions for: Ukraine - Kiev



Ill is percentage illumination of the Moon
*Indicates a repeat illumination and libration event to within +/- 1 deg for both
A non-* indicates just repeat illumination to within +/-0.5 deg


2018-Jul-01 UT 00:19-00:52 Ill=93% Swift observed by Wilkins_HP on 1934-12-23

     Peirce A (Swift=IAU name?) 1937 Dec 23 UTC 22:00 Observed by Wilkins 
     (England, UK, 12.5" reflector) "Obscuration on floor if crater. Crater 
     invis. (similar to #394, 396)." NASA catalog weight=4 (high). NASA 
     catalog ID #412.


2018-Jul-01 UT 00:45-00:52 Ill=93% Aristarchus observed by Corralitos on 1970-1-25

     Aristarchus 1970 Jan 25 UT 07:00? Observed by Thomas, Rogers, 
     Corralitos Observatory (Organ Pass, NM, USA, 24" reflector, Moon blink) 
     "Bluing around the crater -- vis. in monitor but not photographe due to 
     clouds" NASA catalog weight=4 (high). NASA catalog ID #1233


2018-Jul-01 UT 23:24-01:02 Ill=88% Macrobius observed by Gray_R on 2005-10-21

     On 2005 Oct 21 at UT 13:07-14:27 R. Gray (Winnemucca, NV, USA, 15cm F/9 
     refractor, x228, seeing 4-5, transparency 5-6) observed a possible TLP 
     in Macrobius. His report is as follows: "Blinked Macrobius with Wratten 
     Filters Blue 38A and Red 29. Macrobius became almost invisible through 
     the Blue 38A and essentially the same as in white light through the Red 
     29. The interior of the crater was completely in shadow. The only part 
     of the east wall that was visible was an apparent high point still in
     the sun and seen as a bright point of light. This faded into darkness 
     before 13:56UT. No sign of any illumination of the east wall crater 
     interior or the interior of the west wall was seen during the
     observation period. The outer west wall was a rough looking, 
     complicated mix of deep shadow and illuminated sunlit terrain." The 
     observer concluded that there was not a TLP - although he did get a 
     filter reaction, this may have been due to the different densities of 
     the filters? ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Jul-03 UT 01:09-01:58 Ill=80% Aristarchus observed by Louderback_D on 1991-7-31

     On 1991 Jul 31 at UT 07:50 D. Louderback (South Bend, WA, USA, 3" 
     refractor) observed that the south floor of Aristarchus was wellow - 
     "almost gold, spilled over S wall on ray toward Herodotus". Cameron 
     comments that Bartlett often reported a yellow floor but not a spill of 
     the colour over to the external ray. Cameron also comments that 
     Louderback's refractor would refract more in blue light than in yellow, 
     therefore she did not think that it was due to chromatic aberation. The 
     Cameron 2006 catalog ID=431 and the weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2. 


2018-Jul-03 UT 01:09-01:58 Ill=80% Mons_Piton observed by Louderback_D on 1991-7-31

     On 1991 Jul 31 at UT 07:50 D. Louderback (South Bend, WA, USA, 3" 
     refractor) found that all of Mons Piton was "unusually dark". Points D, 
     C (E and S resp), usually brightest points, but this time were not 
     bright. "Whole mt was as dark as W wall usually is at this time. In 
     violet filter Piton disappeared completely, but was a little brighter 
     in red filter and points D & G showed. Color not seen by eye. No albedo 
     measured. Suggests red event." Cameron rules out chromatic aberation 
     from Louderback's refractor. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=431 and the 
     weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jul-03 UT 21:42-23:38 Ill=73% Aristarchus observed by Stochard on 1862-11-12 *

     Stochard of Dublin, Ireland, saw naked eye at 10:30UT on
     1862 Nov 12 Aristarchus as extraordinarily bright as a bright
     spot on the Moon. This was seen in daylight with the waning
     crescent. Cameron 2006 extension catalog ID=6 and weight=3.
     ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Jul-07 UT 00:25-01:12 Ill=42% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

2018-Jul-16 UT 17:57-18:01 Ill=18% Angstrom observed by Smith on 1985-4-23

     On 1985 Apr 23 at UT20:00 Smith (England, UK) found two large glows in 
     Earthshine, one was somewhere in the vicinity of Gruithuisen (i.e. 
     between Aristarchus and Sinus Iridum). The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=263 
     and weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Jul-16 UT 17:57-18:01 Ill=18% Bullialdus observed by Smith on 1985-4-23

     On 1985 Apr 23 at UT20:00 Smith (England, UK) found two large glows in 
     Earthshine, one was west of Bullialdus crater. The Cameron 2006 catalog 
     ID=263 and weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Jul-16 UT 17:57-18:01 Ill=18% Promontorium_Laplace observed by Ashton on 1989-2-9

     On 1989 Feb 09 at UT 19:00 Ashton (Stafford, UK, seeing=V) observed a 
     "green glow in the "peninsular region" of Cape La Place (south of poss. 
     Helicon A?) and brown on the Earthlit limb. Foley (Kent, UK, 12" 
     reflector) noticed a "pin point glow surrounded by blue-green halo" 
     through a blue filter, but not seen through a red filter. He also 
     suspected some brightness variations. He noted that Aristarchus was 
     barely seen and Copernicus was only a faint smudge, presumably because 
     of the bright limb? J. Cook (Frimley, UK) observed a white glow in the 
     Cape region (made up of pin points?) - no other places had a similar 
     effect. P. Moore (Selsey, UK, 12" reflector) reported that nothing 
     unsual was to be seen anywhere on the Moon. M. Cook (Frimley, UK) found 
     a "bright point source near the tip of LaPlace perhaps maupertius D (or 
     LaPlace D?)." This was seen in a blue filter but not through a red 
     filter - the limb was also seen as bright and the cape as a faint 
     patch. Holmes (Lancashire, UK, 30"? reflector or refractor?) although 
     commenting that Aristarchus was a bit dull, could not see the Sinus 
     Iridum glow, North (UK) could only detect the vague presence of 
     Earthshine throug his finder scope, but not in his telecope. The 
     Cameron 2006 catalog ID=349 and the weight=2. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2018-Jul-17 UT 17:56-18:26 Ill=28% N_Pole observed by Chernov_VM on 1977-9-17

     On 1977 Sep 17 at 16:30UT V.M. Chernov (Soviet Union) observed the 
     northern cusp of the Moon to be elongated more than 180deg ashen light. 
     This was 4.3 days after new Moon. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jul-17 UT 17:56-18:26 Ill=28% Aristarchus observed by Holmes_D on 1989-2-10

     On 1989 Feb 10 at UT 18:15-18:40 Holmes and Wooler (Lancashire, 
     UK, 22cm Newtonian, x155) found Aristarchus to be bright, but so 
     too was Prinz. However in a 2nd observing session at 21:05-21:10 
     an area near crater both regions werestill visible but fainter. 
     The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=350 and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=1.


2018-Jul-17 UT 18:06-18:26 Ill=28% Prinz observed by Holmes_D on 1989-2-10

     On 1989 Feb 10 at UT 19:00? D. Holmes and Wooler (Lancashire, UK) found 
     area near Prinz to be bright, but so too was Aristarchus crater.  The 
     Cameron 2006 catalog ID=350 and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jul-17 UT 18:06-18:26 Ill=28% Proclus observed by Edmonds on 1989-2-10

     On 1989 Feb 10 at UT 19:00? Edmonds (England) observed a "bright red 
     coppery" colour in the northwestern part of Proclus crater. He checked 
     and found that there was no colour elsewhere, though he still suspects 
     that the effect was spurious colour. Cameron comments that usually blue 
     is seen in the north and red in the south if due to spurious colour. 
     The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=350 and the weight=3. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=2.


2018-Jul-18 UT 17:55-18:14 Ill=39% S_Pole observed by Wilkins_HP on 1948-4-14

     Leibnitz Mountains 1948 Apr 14 UT 20:00? Observed by Wilkins 
     (Kent, England, 12.5" reflector) " S.cusp prolonged -- detached 
     peaks -- starlike pts. connected by fine filaments brighter than 
     earthshine. (Barcroft, Haas, Vaughan, Moore & Firsoff also have 
     seen similar phenom.)(just sunlight catching high peaks?)." NASA 
     catalog weight=2. NASA catalog ID #502. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jul-18 UT 17:55-18:47 Ill=39% Posidonius observed by McConnell_J on 1968-4-3

     Posidonius 1968 Apr 03/04 UT 22:29-00:15 Observed by McConnell 
     (Antrim, N.Ireland, 3.5" refractor, x117, S=E) "Peculiarhaziness 
     in NE (ast. ?) corner of crater. Greenish-yellow tint similar to 
     M.Crisium at FM. Central crater was clearly vis. N.wall showed 
     no detail at all." NASA catalog weight=3. NASA catalog ID #1064. 
     ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2018-Jul-18 UT 17:59-18:47 Ill=39% Aristarchus observed by Miles_H on 1985-4-25

     On 1985 Apr 25 at UT 21:34-22:04 H. Miles (England) observed 
     Aristarchus within Earthshine. Foley (Kent, UK, 12" reflector) had 
     observed it one hour prior to Miles and found it to be both dull and 
     blue - with a bright patch west of the crater on Aristarchus Upsilon 
     Mountain. At 21:45UT 6 star-like flashes seen on the floor. They 
     occurred again a few minutes later and repeated at 22:04UT.By 21:45UT 
     the bright patch had gone though. Smith (England) had also apparently 
     seen the flashes and a further glow, albeit more north of the one seen 
     by Foley. Miles confirmed Smith's glow north of Aristarchus. 
     Peters did not see much, indeed found Aristarchus to be quite 
     faint (2130-2141). The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=264 and the 
     weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2. 


2018-Jul-18 UT 17:59-18:47 Ill=39% Torricelli_B observed by Cook_MC on 1985-4-25

     Curious lack of detail, but this may have been related to
     the seeing. Of greater interest though was a dark blue
     splodge where the crater should have been. Shadow seen through
     this splodge, but no crater rim seen.


2018-Jul-18 UT 18:15-18:47 Ill=39% Proclus observed by Cook_MC on 1985-4-25

     Almost certainly the following was spurious colour and not
     a TLP. Proclus was found to be brighter than Censorinus. 
     Red was seen on the northern inner floor and blue on the
     edge of the external north rim NNE-NW. The rim to the SW
     could not be seen. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jul-18 UT 18:44-18:49 Ill=39% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

2018-Jul-19 UT 17:54-18:21 Ill=49% Mare_Crisium observed by Webb_TW on 1832-7-4 *

     Webb (England, using a fluid achromat) saw brilliant minute spots and 
     streaks in Mare Crisium dotting its surface. This was seen near first 
     quarter. Cameron states that Schroter, Betr?, Madler, Slack and Ingall 
     had all seen it this way at times. Cameron 1978 catalog iD=111 and 
     weight=3. ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Jul-19 UT 17:54-18:11 Ill=49% Plato observed by Thornton_FH on 1948-4-15

     Plato 1948 Apr 15 UT 20:00? Observed by Thorton (Northwitch, England, 
     9" reflector) "Brilliant orange-yellow flash 1 km inside E. rim  
     (similar to earlier #500 LTP flash in the dark)" NASA catalog weight=3 
     (average). NASA catalog ID #504.


2018-Jul-19 UT 17:54-18:18 Ill=49% Aristarchus observed by Madej_P on 1985-4-26

     Aristarchus appeared to glow in Earthshine with a faint 
     green luminescence that moved from side to side. A bright
     blue central spot was also seen. The green colour was detected
     in two seperate eyepieces.  Observation made from England.
     Cameron 2006 catalog extension ID=266 and weight=2. 
     ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Jul-19 UT 18:23-19:03 Ill=49% Aristarchus observed by Johnson_G on 1985-4-26

     G Johnson of Swanton, MD, USA used a 2" refractor at f/12.
     Aristachus revealed as a red spot on a photo of the Moon. This
     was similar to another photo obtained on 1988 Apr 21st. Frame (with 3
     exposures present)reveals a dim star like point near Campanus on 
     exposure 1. Expsoure 2 shows it a little east on the Earth-lit 
     part. Exposure 3 shows it off the south-east limb. Apparently 20
     minutes later took 2 exposures and frame 18 was a double. The
     second exposure revealed an object farther from the limb but the
     first exposure does not show the object. The two high power exposures 
     do not show it. Cameron could not see the spots that Johson describes
     on his slides, but did see several spots (defects?) on the 
     8 and 12 second exposures near Hevelius and also on the 20 second
     exposure near to Hecataeus only. BAA members observed star like 
     flashes a few hours earlier - near Aristarchus. One BAA member, Madej, 
     had seen a green glow in Arisarchus in two places in two eyepieces.
     Cameron 2006 Catalog extension ID=265 and weight=2.

     In 1948 Apr 15 at UT 20:00? Vince (England, UK) observed a bright spot, 
     about magnitude 3, in Earthshine, about 30deg north of Grimaldi., on 
     the west limb (90W, 25N). The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=503 and the

2018-Jul-20 UT 17:53-18:40 Ill=60% Ptolemaeus observed by Ingalls on 1866-4-22

     Ptolemaeus 1866 Apr 22 UTC 20:00? Observed by Ingalls (Champion Hills, 
     England, UK) "Crater on term., unusually smooth surf. seemed much 
     diversified & gave impression, as at many other times that there was an 
     obscuring medium". NASA catalog weight=3 (average). NADA catalog ID = 142. ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2018-Jul-20 UT 17:53-18:34 Ill=60% Eudoxus observed by Trouvelot on 1877-2-20

     "Eudoxus" 1877 Feb 20 UTC 21:30-22:30 Observed by Trouvelot (Meudon, 
     France, 13" refractor?) "Fine line of light like a luminous cable, 
     drawn W. to E. across crater". NASA catalog weight=1 (very low). NASA 
     catalog ID #185. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jul-20 UT 17:53-18:46 Ill=60% Proclus observed by Cook_MC on 1993-5-28

     On 1993 May 28 at UT 21:02-21:30 M.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, 3.3" Questar 
     telescope, x80-x130, atmosphere hazey - poor transparency) noticed that 
     the east side rims were slightly fuzzy and suspects that this might 
     have been due to the illumination angle. A.C. Cook (Frimley, UK) 
     obtained some CCD images that revealed that the effect was to some 
     extent still there one hour later. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=461 and 
     the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Jul-20 UT 18:21-19:16 Ill=60% Aristarchus observed by Mobberley_M on 1985-4-27

     Mobberley and Foley note that Aristarchus was very
     prominent in Earhshine. Little other detail seen
     in Earthshine other than the limb. The Cameron
     2006 extension catalog then says: "Confirm moving 
     side to side. Saw bright blue spot in center" however 
     it is unclear whether this refers to Aristarchus,
     or Torricelli-B - the latter was also undergoing a TLP
     at this time. Cameron 2006 extension catalog ID=267
     and weight=5 (confirmed?). 


2018-Jul-20 UT 18:21-19:16 Ill=60% W_Limb observed by Mobberley_M on 1985-4-27

     On 1985 Apr 27 UT 22:00 M. Mobberley (Suffolk, UK) could not see much 
     detail in Earthshine (apart from Aristarchus), except that there was a 
     brightness on the western limb of the Moon. The Cameron 2006 catalog 
     ID=267 and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jul-21 UT 17:52-18:04 Ill=69% Tycho observed by Barker_R on 1931-3-27

     On 1931 Mar 27 R.Barker (observing from Cheshunt, UK, 12.5" reflector) 
     found that the central mountain in the brilliant ray crater Tycho was a 
     curious shade of grey. This was despite the interior of Tycho being 
     fully in shadow. Cameron 1978 catalog ID=400 and weight=3. ALPO/BAA

     - "CCD video of spur-like features coming off N & S edges of central 
     peak - spurs pointed eastwards". It is now thought that this effect is 
     almost certainly seeing flare as it is visible on other features in the 
     image, although to a much lesser extent. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jul-21 UT 18:11-19:25 Ill=69% Proclus observed by Westmoreland_S on 1972-7-19

     Proclus 1972 Jul 19 UT 21:24-21:30 observed by S.Westmoorland 
     (Cropwell-Bishop, UK, 15cm reflector, x48 & x96, image dull 
     but steady) observed a brilliant spot in the NE (IAU?) wall 
     which lasted for about 90 seconds. After fading it was 
     replaced by pulsations for a further 2 minutes. Clouds 
     prevented further observations. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jul-21 UT 18:36-21:38 Ill=70% Alphonsus observed by Brook_C on 2001-6-29 *

     On 2001 Jun 29 at UT22:16-22:22 C. Brook (Plymouth, UK, 60mm refractor,

2018-Jul-21 UT 19:08-19:25 Ill=70% Tycho observed by Spellman_R on 1996-4-27

     1996 Apr 27 UTC 02:26-03:14 Observed by Spellman (Los Angeles, CA, USA)
     " 02:26 U.T. Sunrise on Tycho 3/4 of the crater was in shadow, 
     topmost section of the central peak was in sunlight. In white light 
     brightness of the central peak rivaled the brightness of the Eastern
     (sunlit) wall. No change was detected in red light, however in blue 
     light definite strong darkening was observed. Blink obtained when 
     viewing thru 25A and 38 filters. At 2:52 U.T. in the poor to fair 
     seeing the apparent size of the central peak in white and red light was 
     the same, in blue light the central peak in white and red light was the 
     same, in blue light the central peak size shrank to 1/2 white and red 
     size (and brightness). Also appearing sharper. Comparison was made also 
     with the central peak of Alphonsus, no changes were observed. The 
     significant part of the observation was the relative brightness of the 
     central peak to the sunlit rim in white and red light, they appeared 
     almost identical with the crater rim, being just slightly brighter. In 
     blue light the brightness of the central peak was reduced by at least 
     half while the rim brightness was not, (relative to one another). I 
     strongly believe that this was a real event. The shadow filled 
     portion of Tycho was examined for any abnormalities but none 
     were observed. Observations were ended shortly after 3:14 U.T. due to 
     clouds. I also conducted about 20 Moon blink observations during this 
     observing run and got the same strong reaction each time." ALPO/BAA
