     north wall obscured. cameron comments that maybe this was due to the 
     low altitude of the Moon? The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=491 and 
     the weight=4. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

2018-Jul-04 UT 13:28-14:34 Ill=67% Aristarchus observed by Gray_R on 2004-12-3

     Observations made with a variable polarizer (akin to a crater
     extinction device) to measure brighness with red and blue filters.
     Some variability in brightness noted. With the Kodak Wratten
     25 and 38A filters there was little or no increase in contrast with the 
     red filter, but with the blue filter there was a great increase in 
     contrast of the brighter areas of the crater - the crater floor and 
     patches of lighter material, especially at the north end. The remaining
     areas were supressed with the Blue 38A. ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     On 1941 Mar 31 UT 03:15 Barcroft (Madera, CA, USA, 6" reflector) 
     observed Aristarchus in Earthshine - Haas thought it must have been 
     unusually bright. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=486 and weight=3. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Jul-16 UT 05:07-05:32 Ill=13% S_Pole observed by Livesey_R on 1997-4-10

     South Pole 1997 Apr 10 UTC 20:45 Observed by Livesey (Scotland, 65x33, 
     Seeing Antioniadi II, Transparency : Thick Haze Alto Stratus, windy) 
     "Two bright spots seen - one on southern tip of crescent and 2nd way 
     over on the dark side of the S. limb. Earthshine seen, but no 
     features". Probably these are just peaks making it into sunlight -
     though one of them was of considerable distance from the tip of
     the cresecent (was this the peak of eternal light?). So therefore 
     the ALPO/BAA weight=1 i.e. it is worth checking out - however we 
     may not be able to tell for sure until the libration matches 
     up too.


2018-Jul-16 UT 06:07-06:43 Ill=14% Promontorium_Olivium observed by Rodriguez_H on 1988-2-20

     On 1988 Feb 20 at UT22:25-22:34 H. Rodriguez Moreira (Fortaleza, 
     Brazil, 4" refractor) observed a rapid rise in brightness at 
     22:25UT in Promintorium Olivium. About 4 minutes after this the 
     brighness fluctuated 3 times and the TLP faded in 9 minutes 
     after it started, returning everything to normal. "Bluish light 
     point on darkside of it" - apparently a Greek observer (Aguirre) 
     observed a flash but no date was given. The Cameron 2006 catalog 
     ID=317 and the weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     On 1821 Feb 06 at UT 18:00-19:00 At 18:00UT H. Kater (London, UK), 
     Olbers (Bremen, Germany), Browne (UK), commented that Aristarchus 
     looked like a 6-7th magnitude lumninous star, some 3-4' in diameter. At 
     19:00UT Aristarchus looked like a cloudy spot according to Ward and 
     Bailley (England, large telescope, x80). The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=
     84-85 and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2018-Jul-17 UT 07:12-08:01 Ill=23% Aristarchus observed by Schroter on 1786-12-24

     Schroter observed Aristarchus to be extraordinarily bright on the dark
     side of the Moon. Cameron 1978 catalog ID=30 and weight=4. ALPO/BAA 
     catalog weight=2.

     1977 Apr 23 UT19:30-22:45 Foley (10.75" Newtonian and 4.5" 
     refractor, seeing II, transpaency excellent) saw som every large 
     variations in the brightness of Aristarchus whereas other 
     features in Earthshine remained stable. Aristarchus was seen to 
     be blue/violet. ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Jul-18 UT 05:15-06:33 Ill=33% Piccolomini observed by Cameron_W on 1990-8-26

     On 1990 Aug 26 at UT 02:30-03:30 W. Cameron (Sedona, AZ, USA, 8" 
     reflector, x110 and x220) observed that Proclus and Piccolomini craters 
     both had a pink colour inside them. At a higher magnification of x220 
     Piccolomini was still pink and it was stronger on the central peak's 
     wesern side. The cameron 2006 catalog ID=407 and the weight=3. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1 as the Moon was not above the horizon at the date and UT given. 


2018-Jul-18 UT 05:15-06:33 Ill=33% Proclus observed by Cameron_W on 1990-8-26

     On 1990 Aug 26 at UT 02:30-03:30 W. Cameron (Sedona, AZ, USA, 8" 
     reflector, x110, x220, seeing=good) observed that the north wall of 
     Proclus crater was the brightest part of the crater, indeed very 
     bright. Proclus and Picolomini had pink colours inside them. CED 
     brightness measurements were as follows: "Proc. at 100x 4.0, 4.0; at 
     200x 3.4, 3.4; Theop. 3.5, 3.9; 3.5; Herc. 2.5, 2.75; 3.5; Atlas 2.8, 
     2.5, 3.0; Posidonius 3.0." The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=407 and the 
     weight=3. The BAA/ALPO weight=1 as the Moon was not above
     the horizon at the UT given.


2018-Jul-18 UT 05:15-06:33 Ill=33% Theophilus observed by Cameron_W on 1990-8-26

     On 1990 Aug 26 at UT 02:30-03:30 W. Cameron (Sedona, AZ, USA, 8" 
     reflector, x110 and x220, seeing=good) observed that the west wall of 
     Theophilus crater was red (on terminator). However Posidonius was also 
     on the terminator and no colour was seen elsewhere along the 
     terminator, however Proclus and Piccolomini had pink interiors. At a 
     higher power of x220 a prismatic effect was seen on the terminator in 
     Theophilus and opther craters - "even on W rim of a crater due W of 
     Theoph.". CED measurements of Theophilus... 3.5, 3.9, 3.5. The Cameron 
     2006 catalog ID=407 and the weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=1
     because the Moon was below the horizon at this time.

     On 1867 Apr 09 at UT 19:30-21:00 Elger(Liverpool? UK, 4"? aperture 
     telescope) observed that Aristarchus was shining like a 7th magnitude 
     star-like point, becoming fainter, almost extinguished at 9PM. He had 
     seen lights before but never so strong. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=151 
     and he weight=4. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

2018-Jul-19 UT 07:01-08:58 Ill=44% Messier observed by Robinson_JH on 1981-2-10

     Messier 1981 Feb 10 UT 19:20-20:10 TLP discoevered by Hedley 
     Robinson (Devon, England) "Messier was brighter than Aristarchus 
     in both red and blue filters and also appeared indistinct, later 
     becoming invisible - lost in a bright streak. In comparison 
     Aristarchus was clear. Another observer, Amery confirmed that 
     Aristarchus was sharp in appearance but Messier certainly was 
     not. Cook likewiese found Messier not to be as sharp as Messier 
     A dueto a big shadow in Messier A. Pedler found that the sun 
     facing wall of Messier was OK but that the shadow was changing 
     from black to grey periodically at intervals of 2-3 minutes to a 
     few seconds. By contrast he found that Messier A remained quite 
     well defined. He tried red and blue filters but found no blink 
     effect. At 20:23UT Pedler found that the shadow had stabilized 
     to a shade of "mid grey" although remaining ill-defined. North 
     also found that Messier A was distinct but Messier itself was 
     ill-defined. Moore found the same thing but thinks that this is 
     normal for Messier under this illumination to appear indistinct. 
     More also saw the grey interior shadow. Price saw similar 
     appearance to Moore and suspected that this was normal for this 
     stage in illumination. Ratcliffe suspected everything normal - 
     just commenting that Messier was smaller and no detail in 
     comparison to Messier A. Madej and Taylor provided a sketch that 
     showed again a grey interior and merging with the east 
     wall/mare. Foley found Messier's pale grey interior to be un-
     focusable but in comparison Messier A was sharp. He says that he 
     would expect a grey interior and the east wall to merge with the 
     mare. However the complete loss of deatil and variability were 
     not normal. Cameron comments that the Kuiper atlas confirms the 
     fuzzy indistinct appearance of Messier and that a Lunar Orbiter 
     picture shows a grey shadow. The Cameron extended catalog 
     weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Jul-19 UT 08:54-10:20 Ill=45% Julius_Caesar observed by Colesanti_C on 1993-6-25

     On 25 Jun 1993 at UT 23:30-23:52 Carlos Colesanti (Mairinque, 
     Brazil) obtained two CCD images of Julius Caesar crater and 
     noticed a brilliant fuzzy area on the rim of the crater. This 
     appeared in both images and resembled a fuzzy white blob. Note 
     that this is a REA-Brazil observation. ALPO/BAA weight=1. 
     Cameron (2006) ID=463.


2018-Jul-19 UT 09:27-10:20 Ill=45% 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 
     mag star-like point on the north east wall of Aristarchus crater. M. 
     Price (Camberley, UK) at 21:46 and 21:49. North (UK) detected flashes 
     from the central peak. Foley saw Aristarchus as a "translucent glow". 
     Moore, Pedler and Ratcliff could not find Aristarchus. Earlier though 
     Amery (Reading, UK) had found Aristarchus to be sharply defined. 
     Cameron 2006 catalog ID=122 and weight=5. ALPO/BAA weight=3.

2018-Jul-20 UT 05:33-06:52 Ill=54% Messier observed by Robinson_JH on 1982-12-22

     On 1982 Dec 22 at UT 19:20-20:10 J-H Robinson (Teighmouth, Devon, UK, 
     10" reflector, x150, seeing=IV-V) could not distinguish between Messier 
     and Messier A. The tail of these features was very bright - two 
     telescopes were used. Moore (Selsey, UK, 12" reflector, seeing=III) 
     could see Messier A but found Messier itself obscured - just see the 
     west wall and thought that the comet like tail was unusual as it did 
     not appear divided. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=192 and weight=5. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     4" refractor) discovered that the central peak of Alphonsus crater was 
     very bright. The central peak was also brighter in red than in blue 
     light. However G. North (Herstmonceux, UK, 6" reflector, x135, seeing 
     V-III) and M. Cook (Frimley, UK, 4" reflcrctor, x10, seeing=III) 
     observed that the central peak was normal, however they did not use 
     filters. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID= and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=2.

     Mosely saw a reddush-orange patch and this was confirmed by 
     Moore. NNW of the central peak, Mosely got a blink, but Moore 
     did not because of too much stray light. The colour was like
     Jupiter's red spot, but less pronounced. The Cameron 1978 
     catalog ID=1118 and weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=4.

     On 1987 Mar 09 at UT20:00 M. Mobberley (Sussex, UK) obtained some video 
     of Mons Pico - apparently these show the mountain with a puzzling 
     appearance (not sure whether it was the observer who claimed this or

2018-Jul-23 UT 05:13-05:51 Ill=82% Archimedes observed by Miranda on 1971-8-1

     Archimedes 1971 Aug 01 UT 22:00(?) (19:00 originally given 
     probably local time) Miranda (Plaui, Brazil, 4" refractor, 
     x80) observed two grooves going from east to west, broadening 
     towards the west, across Archimedes. A drawing was supplied. 
     Apparently this was the first time that this was ever seen. 
     Cameron suggests rays? and also says that in fact a similar 
     phenomenon reported before in neasrly the same position 
     (Apollo 15 watch?). The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1303 and 
     weight=2. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     and x207, seeing III-V and transparency fair) suspected an obscuration 
     on the north and north west wall. The effect came and went. May have 
     been due to seeing and image contrast? Cameron 2006 catalog ID=101 and 
     weight=1. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jul-23 UT 06:23-08:20 Ill=82% Sinus_Iridum observed by Manske_R on 1987-10-3

     On 1987 Oct 03 at UT 01:0?0-02:00 R. Manske (Brooklyn, WI, USA, 8" 
     reflector, x226) observed sunlight glinting of the walls in spectacular 
     display of colours. White (even gold) was seen at the centre, and blue 
     on the top most part of the rim. The white (or gold) band was thin in 
     comparison to other bands. The observer suspects that this effect was 
     terrestrial atmosphere related. Cameron 2006 catalog ID=307 and weight=
     0. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     30cm reflector, Meade 23A and 38A filters, seeing III, 
     transparency fairly good, some haze) observed a whitish misty 
     effect seen bordering the shadows of the SE rim. It appeared 
     intermittently and was not seen in the violet or red filters. 
     Observers wonders if it could have been an effect associated 
     with the Earth's atmosphere, which was unsteady with some haze. 
     However, other craters appeared normal. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jul-23 UT 07:54-08:46 Ill=83% Unknown observed by Scarfe on 1964-1-24

2018-Jul-23 UT 09:26-10:14 Ill=83% Plato observed by Brook_C on 2006-2-8 *

     C. Brook of Plymouth UK, using a 4" refractor x216, noticed at UT 20:10
     dark patches coming and going (in terms of visibility) on the floor of 
     Plato. Occasional views of the central cratelet (seen as a white spot) 
     were glimpsed. The dark patches seen lasted about 1-2 seconds before
     fading out during each visibility cycle. Teneriff Mountains were 
     checked but no sign of seeing effects that might explain the dark floor
     patches. By 20:26UT the dark patch effect was fading and by 20:31UT 
     floor detail was visible. Observations ceased at UT 20:34. Seeing 
     conditions were II and the Moon was at a high altitude. Other observers 
     were alerted but came on-line after the effect had finished. ALPO/BAA 
     weight=2.

     Gassendi 1976 Oct 04 UT 20:55-20:58 Observed by Robinson (Devon, 
     England) - observer noted that the east outside wall was bright in red 
     and normal in blue. Note that the Moon was 30 deg above the horizon at 
     the time of the observation. The crater returned to normal at 20:58. 
     Also seen by Moore (Selsey, UK) and Foley (Kent, UK). At 21:25-21:50 D. 
     Sims (Dawlish, UK, 25cm reflector, x300, seeing IV and some cloud at 
     times) noticed a possible obscuration over the southern part of 
     Gassendi. He had been observing earlier at 18:40-19:30 but had not 
     detected a TLP in Gassendi then. 22:11UT Robinson notices that the spot 
     outside the east wall is again bright in red., though by 22:25 it had 
     faded  and was gone by 22:28UT. The Cameron 1978 catalog further 
     quotes: "Vivid red spots & general red color seen around rim by 2 obs. 
     At 2209h blood red small area was seen. 1 h later the most westerly

2018-Jul-24 UT 06:44-08:22 Ill=89% Gassendi observed by Unknown_English_Observer on 1977-4-29

     On 1977 Apr 29 at UT21:40-23:20 an unknown UK observer reported a TLP 
     in Gassendi crater. The following are reports by observers attempting 
     to confirm activity: J.W. Napper (Didcot, UK, 30cm reflector, x287, 
     Wratten 25 and 44a, conditions clear 5+) received a telephone alert 
     call at 22:00 but the sky was cloudy until 22:30. An initial look 
     revealed nothing unusual, then at 22:54 he observed a colour blink just 
     inside the north wall, appearing bright in red and normal in blue or 
     white light. No loss of detail seen and the effect lasted only 2 
     minutes. A sketch was made. However the observer stresses that the very 
     bad seeing casts some doubt on this observation. L. Fitton observed 
     using a 8.5" reflector, with Moon blink device at x200, seeing was I-
     II. All areas negative, including Gassindi from 21:40-21:55 and again

2018-Jul-25 UT 07:08-09:01 Ill=94% Mare_Serenitatis observed by van_Son_M on 2004-5-2

     On 2004 May 02 at UT03:24 M. and L. van Son (Bremerton, WA, May 1st 
     7:24PM PST) saw a naked eye flash on the Moon. The observers were 
     glancing up at the Moon in daylight when they saw a bright white flash 
     (observer and his wife together) in the upper/mid Mare Serenitatis 
     region, west of the crater Posidonius. "Larger than how Venus appears".
     "It was a quick flash  like white, intense lightning. I'm not sure how 
     to report degrees of arc but if the face we see is 900, and we start 
     from the east then the flash occurred about 225 arc seconds to the 
     west. This was observed by the naked eye, with clear skies between us 
     and the moon." The observers checked for signs of aircraft vapour 
     trails but could not see any. There is a possibility that it could have 
     been sun glint from an Iridium satellite, but this needs to be checked 
     out and usually these last longer than the observed effect. It would be 
     useful to obtain whole Moon images under the same illunination and 
     libration so that we can judge this observation properly. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=4.

     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

2018-Jul-27 UT 09:36-11:33 Ill=100% Mare_Tranquillitatis observed by Searle_G on 1978-9-16

     On 1978 Sep 16 at UT 18:28-18:57 G.Searle (Concord, Sydney, NSW, 
     Australia, 8" reflector, x100, x160, S=III) observed a bright star-like 
     point on the western (IAU) edge of Mare Tranquilitatis (x100) that 
     appeared unlike any other crater and a check of the location revealed 
     no suitably bright crater in that region (from a map?). Changed to a 
     higher power (x160) and it was still there, but not as conspicuous. 
     Observer thinks that this may have been due to the Moon's low altitiude 
     (16 deg) and the seeing. At 18:35 he compared it to the brilliant 
     crater Proclus and found the star-like point to be 75% of the 
     brightness of Proclus. Ken Wallace (Australia) had been taking photos 
     and observed the object at 17:37.5UT. The object gradually faded over 
     the next 15 minutes and by 18:52UT could only be seen in averted vision 
     at x100. By 18:57UT it was gone. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=38 and 
     weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

2018-Jul-27 UT 12:56-13:32 Ill=100% Aristarchus observed by Mobberley_M on 1984-12-7

     On 1984 Dec 07 at UT 19:30-23:30 M. Mobberley (St Edmunds, UK, 
     seeing=IV-V, transparency=good, spurious colour seen) found 2 
     bright pathces on the east rim on alternate sides of a bright region. 
     The band from the central 16km wide region was dark on the east side. 
     Foley (Kent, UK, 12"reflector, seeing=II-III) found Aristarchus to be 
     not as bright as normal, apart from the band that Mobberley found (1 
     hour later). The dark regions were a murky green colour (bright through 
     green, blue and yellow filters and dark through red and orange 
     filters). Cook (Frimley, UK, transparency=excellent, CCD camera used) 
     found a bright "bulge"on the eastern side. Apparently data suggests 
     that the band was brighter in red than in near IR light. Cook's 
     calibrated brightness measurements suggest that there was no change in 
     brightness over the crater with time. Two other bright points were 
     seen: one at the Cobra's Head and another half way between the east rim 
     of Aristarchus and passes Herodotus. Wratten 29 (deep red), Wratten 87 
     (near IR) and combined Wratten 29 and Wratten 87 were used. In the red 
     Wratten 29 filter the brightness falls at22:20 at Shroters valley and 
     then rises in the bright ray. They return to normal at 22:30UT. There 
     was however a lot of measurement noise from the brightness readings of 
     points B and D. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=256 and the weight=5. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=3. 


2018-Jul-27 UT 13:20-15:12 Ill=100% Mare_Fecunditatis observed by Emersen_G on 2000-1-21

     On 2000 Jan 21 UT04:40 G. Emersen (Golden, CO, USA, 30cm focal length 
     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. 
     The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     On 1848 at UT 21:00 Rankin and Chevallier (France?): Luminous pts. seen 
     during an eclipse. Cameron ays that year 1847 given by Middlehurst must 
     be wrong as age is 2.7 days for this date in 1847 and could not be 18-
     19 as in Middlehurst because eclipse is on the 19th at 21h (mid) in 
     1948.  aux. data here are for 1848. At 21:12 Forster (England) and

2018-Jul-31 UT 18:45-19:30 Ill=87% S_Pole observed by Unknown_Observer on 1895-9-8

     On 1895 Sep 07 an unknown observer (Lewis Swift?) observed a pale blue 
     segment on the upper limb - this was apparently confirmed by Faulkes 
     (Mem. BAA, 1895). Cameron says that this is probably 1895 Sep 08 at UT 
     06:00 as Sep 07 is local time. She also infers that "upper limb" is the 
     southern limb and that Swift was at the Lowell Observatory, Flagstaff, 
     AZ, USA. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=285 and weight=5. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=2.
