     refractor) observed a TLP in Kepler. Cameron says that the date maybe a 
     misprint, should be 11/1/63? - sunset terminator at 25W and Copernicus 
     in dark. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=782 and weight=0. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=1.

2018-Dec-02 UT 08:28-00:00 Ill=25% Mons_La_Hire observed by Darling_D on 1989-6-28

     On 1989 Jun 28 at UT 08:39-09:00 D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 
     3" refractor, x36) discovered that at this time Mons La Hire was the 
     brightest feature on the Moon. LaPrice was also very bright. Cameron 
     quotes that Darling recorded that LaHire had a brightness of 7.0 and 
     LaPlace=7.5. Darling did not think that this was a TLP. The Cameron 
     2006 catalog ID=369 and weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     refractor, x36) noted that promontorium LaPlace was very bright. 
     LaHire brigtness was 7.0 and LaPlace was 7.5. Darling suspects 
     that this was not a TLP because "as did not have mother-of-perl 
     appearance as seen on Piton at times"The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=369

2018-Dec-09 UT 22:46-23:01 Ill=6% Aristarchus observed by Horne_J on 1988-4-19

     On 1988 Apr 19 at UT 01:15-04:00 J. Horne (Steadman, NC, USA, 8" 
     reflector, S=4/10) took photographs of the Moon's Earthshine (appeared 
     in the Aug 1988 Sky and telescope magazine). Aristarchus was bright. In 
     addition several members of the Madison Astronomical Society also found 
     the crater to be bright and one of them saw streaks and flashes from 
     the crater.  Manske (8" reflector, x97, + binoculars, S=E) found the 
     crater to be "abnornormally bright" where as other craters in 
     Earthshine were just normal. Fryback's (Madison, WI, USA, 8" reflector, 
     S=VG) photographs confirm that the crater was very bright - the Moon 
     was only 4deg in altitude though. The Camweron 2006 catalog ID=325 and

2018-Dec-11 UT 22:47-23:39 Ill=19% Aristarchus observed by Fryback_D on 1988-4-21

     On 1988 Apr 21 at UT 01:28-04:00 D. Fryback (Madison, WI, USA) took a 
     series of photographs - Aristarchus was a luminous patch and in one 
     photograph a red spot (Cameron suspects marks on the film). is seen 
     near Aristarchus. Strangely though when looking through the telescope, 
     the crater was not excessively bright. D. Spain (Fairdale, KY, USA, 
     3.5" reflector?, x60) observed a narrow white streak of mag 5-6 of 
     duration 0.5 sec that covered 160-320km near the centre of the Moon at 
     01:53UT. A similar streak happened but the direction was different. 
     Next 2 small red flashes were seen at 02:00 and 02:01UT of magnitude 7 
     (<1sec) in the vicinity of Aristarchus. The cameron 2006 catalog ID=327

2018-Dec-11 UT 23:54-00:29 Ill=19% Aristarchus observed by Sancristoforo_G on 2011-4-7

     On 2011 Apr 07 UT 19:45-20:10 Aristarchus was seen to be “very 
     bright” in Earthshine. Giorgio Sancristoforo (Milan, Italy, 
     203mm SCT, atmospheric seeing good) noticed Aristarchus to be 
     exceptionally bright (Sketch supplied) at around 20:00 and was 
     the first to report this. Although he did not record the start 
     and end times, he commented that the effect lasted 20-30 minutes 
     and then was significantly reduced in brightness. Although 
     direct comparison in terms of brightnes could not be made with a 
     star, he thought Aristarchus to be brighter than +0.7 in 
     magnitude (Saturn). Furthermore Aristarchus was visible when 
     daylight was still present, when looking through the telescope, 
     although it could not be seen with the naked eye due to too much 
     extraneous light. Aristarchus was probably white in colour, but 
     the observer was partly colour blind and so was uncertain. Not 
     much detail was seen elsewhere in Earthshine, even when the sky 
     darkened, and he was not able to see Kepler or Copernicus, just 
     the limb. No details were seen in Aristarchus itself, for 
     example no ray to the SW was visible. It later transpired that 
     Lajos Bartha (Budapest, Hungary, 70mm refractor, x83, seeing 
     conditions good) had observed Earthshine even earlier from 
     UT19:45-20:10 and noticed a bright area close to the edge of the 
     Moon that he later confirmed was Aristarchus. When he started 
     observing the sky twilight was still a deep blue, but the dark 
     side of the Moon was seen both with the naked eye and through 
     the telescope. Earthshine was medium in brightness and grey in 
     colour. Copernicus and Kepler were weak in brightness but 
     certainly visible. There was some scattered light from the 
     sunlit side of the Moon noticed, but not enough to obscure 
     Copernicus and Kepler from visibility. As a test he moved the 
     telescope around and the bright spot moved with the Moon and so 
     was not a glare problem. The following day he checked Earthshine 
     again but found that the bright spot was not so conspicuous. As 
     a footnote, Tim Haynes (UK) had been observing an occultation of 
     37 Tauri, much earlier at 19:14UT, through 10x50 binoculars. He 
     commented that Earthshine was visible, but that he hadn't 
     noticed Aristarchus - though he was not looking at the Moon 
     specifically to see this crater. ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2018-Dec-12 UT 00:02-00:29 Ill=19% Aristarchus observed by Douillet on 1933-3-30

2018-Dec-12 UT 22:48-23:31 Ill=27% Aristarchus observed by Pruss on 1969-7-19

     On 1969 Jul 19 at UT 1845-18:47 Pruss and Witte (Bochum, Germany, 6" 
     refractor x36 and binoculars) saw brightenings in the north west wall 
     of Aristarchus for 3-7 seconds of about 1 magnitude over the 
     background. From orbit at UT 18:46 the Apollo 11 crew Armstrong, 
     Aldrin, and Collins (in orbit around the Moon and using the naked eye) 
     were asked to take a look at Aristarchus after Earth-based reports of 
     TLP activity. Armstrong reported (after the solar corona had set, on 
     the night side) that probably Aristarchus "to be considerably more 
     illuminated than the surrounding area. It just has - seem to have, a 
     slight amount of flourescence to it". Collins reported a moment later: 
     "Looking out on the same area now. Well at least there is one wall of 
     the crater that seems to be more illuminated than the others. I am not 
     sure that I am actually identifying any phosporesecence, but that 
     definitely is lighter than anything else in the neighborhood". Houston 
     then asked if the crew could detect any colour and if the inner wall 
     was the inner or outer part? Aldrim  commnted that it was the inner 
     wall and Collins mentioned thatno colour was incolved. The Cameron 1978 
     catalog ID=1165 and weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     On 1969 Jul 19 at UT 19:30-21:30 Gervais (Lodure, France, 4.5" 
     refractor?) saw the whole region of Aristarchus and its environs 
     as brighter than normal. Two photographs were obtained. The 
     Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1156 and weight=5. At UT 20:30-20:55 
     Oliver (Spain, using a reflector) found the Aristarchus to have 
     brightened by about 1 magnitude. From UT 20:12-20:30 the crater 
     had been normal. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1167 and the 
     weight=2. At UT 21:00-00:35 P. Mourilhe Silva (Rio de Janeiro, 
     Brazil, 19.5" refractor) saw Aristarchus as a very bright 
     elliptical shape which extended to the north like a bridge 
     between two points. Jose M. L. da Silva and Ronaldo Mourao (Rio 
     de Janeiro, Brazil, 13" refractor) saw a brightening on the 
     north west wall from 21:24-23:22UT intermittently but cont'd. 
     Wall was extraordinarilly bright, along NW wall brighter. 
     Moseley (Armagh, Northern Ireland, UK, 10" refractor) detected 
     an unusual bright, along north west wall, brighter than normal 
     in Earthshine and brighter than crater. It was not constant, but 
     pulsated irregularly with frequency of 20 seconds and amplitude 
     0.75-1.0 magnitudes. No colour seen or obscuration though lokked 
     for. Clouds interrupted observations. Vasquez (Valparaiso, 
     Chile, 12" reflector) saw it as a very luminous point of 
     magnitude 1. Wairy Cardoso (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 12" 
     reflector and 18" refractor) noted a bright. 1s??? The Cameron

     On 1966 Sep 20 at UT 03:22 Three Astronet observers (Phoenix, AZ, and 
     Los Angeles, CA, USA) (independently?) reported flashes in Grimaldi 
     crater. One observer was in Phoenix AZ, and another in Losa Angeles, 
     CA, so probably not due to the atmosphere. Cameron comments that the

2018-Dec-12 UT 23:48-00:18 Ill=27% S_Pole observed by Kemp_A on 2011-4-8

     South Pole 2011 Apr 08 UT 19:30-20:00 A.Kemp (Mold, Flintshire, UK) observed that the 
     Leibnitz peaks at the southern pole stood out sharply. However one of the peaks was “shining 
     like a spot light. So bright that I couldn’t make out its shape”. – image clear and steady with 
     excellent transparency and seeing in the 70mm f/13 refractor (25mm and 10mm eyepieces). 
     Inspections during the above time period revealed no changes in brightness. Previous 
     observations of this area had never shown such an unusual brightness, and Arthur likened the 
     brightness to “a maximum brightness of Venus shining amongst 2nd magnitude stars”. The 
     observer was an experienced observer. ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Dec-13 UT 00:00-01:08 Ill=27% Grimaldi observed by Thinon on 1969-7-19

     Grimaldi 1969 Jul 19 UT 20:39-20:45 Delaye (France, 25cm 
     refractor) saw a bright bluish spot near Grimaldi. 20:43 a 
     flash was seen by Thinon. Delaye saw flashes at 20:44 and 
     20:45. Between 21:00 and 23:00 (J. M. L.) da Silva (Rio de 
     Janeiro, Brazil, 19.5" refractor) saw a bright spot on the W 
     (IAU??) of Grimaldi. However there is a bright spot near 
     Grimaldi, so this maybe normal. NASA ID = 1167. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=2.


2018-Dec-13 UT 00:05-01:08 Ill=27% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1975-12-8

     UK, 12" reflector, x60-x624, seeing II, slight mist) found 
     Aristarchus to be less well visible than features such as: 
     Grimaldi, Reiner, Darwin/Byrgius, Kepler, Plato and Sinus 
     Iridum. Earthshine was exceptionally good tonight and was 
     orange/red in colour. Photographs were taken and these confirmed 
     the apparent dullness of Aristarchus. ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Dec-13 UT 00:14-01:08 Ill=27% Gassendi observed by Jackson_L on 1990-3-31

     On 1990 Mar 31 at UT 21:30 L. Jackson (England, UK?) observed a red 
     glow in Earthshine in Gassendi as shown in a sketch. Apparently 
     Gassendi can often show up red colours (according to Cameron) but 
     rarely is this seen in Earthshine. Foley saw the sketch and suspects 
     that the location was Gassendi. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=397 and 
     weight=2. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     Proclus to be much brighter than Censorinus (which of the two was 
     abnormal is a question) - though he thought that Censorinus looked 
     dull. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=247 and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA

     On 1991 May 21 at UT05:30-06:15 J. Green (Orangevale, CA, USA, 11" 
     reflector) photgrapphed a broad bright band stretching east and north 
     of Cassini crater in 3 exposures taken 10 minutes apart. This 
     photographic sequence shows a gradual widening towards Cassini and by 
     the 3rd exposure the band is touching (and then obscuring) Cassini. A 
     "fan" was visible in the north east and WSW directions, later this was 
     seen as rays and this was even seen in the view finder of the camera. 
     Cameron comments that this might be lens flare but suspects that it 
     would not have been seen in the view finder. The Cameron 2006 catalog 
     ID=427 and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     (Frimley, 12" reflector, 6mm Ortho eyepiece, seeing III-IV) 
     Orange discolouration seen on ESE crater floor. Moon blink 
     tried, but no blink detected. By 21:10 the effect had lessened, 
     but was still orange. By 21:50-21:58 the effect was smaller and 
     perhaps more on the SE of the floor. Colour confirmed by Foley. 
     Fitton may also have been observing. At 22:00 A.C. Cook observed 
     and commented that a darkish, perhaps brown-orange colour seen - 
     but suspected it was probably spurious colour - but by now the 
     seeing was V. J.H. Robinson, whilst doing a Moon Blink sweep of 
     several features, including Theophilus, had not noticed anything 
     unusual 18:50-19:10. By 22:30-22:35UT, he still could not detect 
     a blink, but noticed intermittent darkining on the shaded area

2018-Dec-17 UT 22:51-00:43 Ill=74% Proclus observed by Cook_MC on 1989-7-13

     Proclus 1989 Jul 13 UT  21:04-21:13 Observed by M.Cook (Frimley, UK, 
     90mm Quastar Cat., Seeing III, transoparency hazy) and by Moore 
     (Selsey, England) "Following an alert call by Miles concerning the 
     crater Proclus looking different, Cook observed a circular dark patch 
     that filled about half of the eastern half of the crater floor. To cut 
     down the glare a blue filter was then used and a slightly less dark 
     area was seen extending from this in a southerly direction. 8 rays were 
     seen. The dark patch was confirmed by Patrick Moore. However David 
     Darling (USA) who observed a few hours later on 1989 Jul 14 at 03:28 UT 
     could not see this dark patch." BAA Lunar Section observation. The

2018-Dec-18 UT 00:45-02:40 Ill=74% Hevelius observed by Emmett on 1826-4-17

     Scarcely a trace of nebulae tonight. As long as to June 10 at
     2000UT? A little blackness remained. (P. Moore thinks it
     was a LTP, WSC it was a permanent feature?) Drawing. Seen

2018-Dec-18 UT 03:17-03:43 Ill=75% Plato observed by Foley_PW on 1983-7-20

     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.

     cirrus) observed visually (depicted in sketch) the two closely 
     spaced NW wall dark bands) to have a rusty-red hue. The colour 
     of these bands did not change over the period of the observing

     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

2018-Dec-20 UT 03:54-04:46 Ill=91% Aristarchus observed by Robinson_JH on 1975-4-23

     On 1975 Apr 23 at UT 20:30 J-H Robinson (Teighmouth, Devon, UK, 260mm 
     reflector, x200). Observer was observing since 20:30UT, at 21:00UT 
     though they noticed red on the outside south wall of Aristarchus, a 
     hazy ill defined area that was larger in a red filter than in blue 
     filter, and outside east wall was bright in red. At 21:08UT the outside 
     west wall of Aristarchus no longer gave a colour blink reaction, and at 
     21:22UT the colour blink on the southern end of the crater ceased, but 
     the image blur remained (in both red and blue filters) despite the rest 
     of the crater being sharp in detail. Observations ceased at UT 21:35 
     because the blurring at the southern end seemed to be normal and this 
     was confirmed when checked with photographic atlases. Other craters 
     such as Proclus, Pickering, Tycho, Gassendi, Copernicus, Alphonsus, 
     Plato, Menelaus, Manilius, Linne and Theophilus, showed no colour blink 
     reactions. However Picard had a red bright blink from 20:30-20:40 and 
     the permanant blink on the N. Floor of Fracastorius was detectable. 
     Also Plato floor shadings were clearer in red than in blue - 
     intermittently. This is a BAA lunar section observation. No estimation 
     of transparency or seeing is given, nor any comment on whether spurious 
     colour was seen in any craters visually. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     M.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, 30cm reflector, seeing III - occasionally V, 
     transparency moderate to good) Found the crater to have an elongated 
     appearance (in SSW-NNE direction) in white light, similar to the 
     previous night. A bright elongated spot was seen on the NNE floor, 
     close to where the wall should be. Not able to define the rim. There 
     was a very dark surrounding area to the crater, similar to what it was 
     on the previous night (roughly 1/4 brightness of Censorinus). 23:04UT 
     brighter in yellow, then red, then blue. At 23:10 it was seen that blue 
     filter dulled the crater - this was odd because both Censorinus and 
     Proclus were brighter in blue, which is what he would normally expect. 
     At23:15 UT Censorinus was brighter in blue, then yellow then red 
     filters and some orange spurious colour seen to the south of 
     Censorinus. At 23:23UT no spurious colour seen on Proclus or 
     Censorinus. 23:46UT Torricelli B elongated as before, but a very faint 
     ray might have been seen to the south west of the rim. This report is 
     not in the 2006 Cameron catalog. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

2018-Dec-25 UT 03:07-04:09 Ill=92% Messier_A observed by Moore_P on 1951-8-20

     Messier A 1951 Aug 20 UT 01:48-03:00 Observed by P.Moore 
     (England, 8.5" reflector, x350). Bright cloud like circular 
     patch seen on S wall of Messier A. It was the brightest object 
     in the vicinity. Observations ceased due to the Moon setting 
     behind a tree. W.Haas thinks that this effect is not unusual at 
     similar colongitudes. Moore checked again under similar 
     illumination and still considers the Aug 20 appearance abnormal. 
     NASA weight=4. NASA catalog ID #545. ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Dec-25 UT 03:07-04:12 Ill=92% Cleomedes observed by Beaumont_S on 1993-12-31

     On 1993 Dec 31 at UT 05:00-07:40 S. Beaumont (Cambridge, UK, 12" 
     reflector) "saw a patch of hazy light to NW (from c.p. alpha) at 0550 
     craters B & J shadow of alpha had not reached E wall yet, but at 0536 
     it did. Alpha > at 0550. Craters B & J to SE had faded, vanished at 
     0630. Hazy patch remained around peak, alpha low mainly to NE like a 
     comet's tail. Slightly reddish fringe to E wall. (shown in sketch)". 
     The above has been quoted in full from the Cmeron catalog because the 
     catalog desription is slightly ambiguous and any attempted summary 
     might make the description more unreliable. The cameron 2006 catalog 
     ID=470 and the weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.   


2018-Dec-25 UT 04:31-05:52 Ill=92% Torricelli_B observed by Brook_C on 2002-10-23

     Torricelli B 2002 Oct 23/24 UT 23:25-23:52 Observed by Clive Brook 
     (Plymouth, UK, 60 mm OG x120 + prism) "Observed that Torricelli was 
     very diffuse and Tor B showing shadow ? observer considered a shadow 
     perhaps a little surprising this far from the terminator. Nothing 
     unusual seen by M.Cook at 23:52UT or by A Cook at 00:40-00:52 and 
     indeed other craters did appear to have shadows this far from the 
     terminator ? so perhaps only unusual aspect of the original observation 
     that could not be checked due to poor seeing by the latter observer was 
     the fuzziness. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Dec-25 UT 06:10-07:58 Ill=91% Proclus observed by Muller on 1973-1-21

2018-Dec-25 UT 06:59-08:08 Ill=91% Romer observed by Darling_D on 1979-9-9

     On 1979 Sep 09 at UT08:00-08:15 D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 12.5" 
     reflector, x75 and photography used, seeing 4/10 and the Moon's 
     altitude was 45deg) photographed Romer crater and recorded two adjacent 
     bright cigar shaped objects - these were the same size as an 
     observation made in 1987. Darling believes that these are ridges. 
     Cameron comments that in LO-IV 192-3,2 a ridge is revealed on the 
     inside wall that matches the description. Cameron 2006 catalog ID=66 
     and weight=2. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2018-Dec-30 UT 06:04-08:05 Ill=40% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

2018-Dec-30 UT 08:30-08:37 Ill=40% Plato observed by Wilkins_HP on 1944-8-12

     On 1944 Aug 12 at UT 04:00 H.P. Wilkins (Kent, UK, 8.52" 
     reflector) observed that central craterlet in Plato was 
     unusually bright and shows up as a bright white spot on his 
     sketch - though this might have been artistic license in his 
     sketch. His written notes refer to the unusual lack of a rim 
     (especially the northern part) to this craterlet.
