2018-Jul-02 UT 21:17-21:54 Ill=82% Aristarchus observed by Haas_W on 1957-10-13

     Aristarchus 1957 Oct 13 UT 07:00?$ W.Haas, according to the 1978 
     NASA Catalog is supposed to have seen a bright spot of light -- 
     "explosion" in this crater. Confirmation of activity
     in Aristarchus - Three independent observations within 4 hours.
     Cameron 1978 catalog weight=5 and TLP ID No.=676. Private
     comunication with Haas shows that he recorded nothing unusual
     on the 12th or 13th. Therefore an ALPO/BAA weight of 1 has
     been given until this matter is cleared up.

     158mm reflector, f/4.2, x36-110, seeing II-III) "Obscuration seen" BAA 
     Lunar Section Report. Cameron says that this was a bright white cloud 
     that covered three quarters of the crater. A yellow filter was used at 
     21:48, but the cloud was still white, albeit thinner (at x110). By 
     22:14UT the TLP was barely visible and again no colour seen. Buczynski

     On 1986 Oct 20 at UT 03:30 Slager (Grand Rapids, MI, USA) 
     detected colour in Aristarchus, red on the south wall and a 
     blue "washed out gun metal colour on the "whole"inner north 
     wall. A 2nd observer confirmed the observation. Cameron 
     suspects that this is simply spectral dispersion. The Cameron 
     2006 catalog ID=288 and the weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     reflector, seeing III) found that Aristarchus was very bright 
     and slightly blue. Cameron comments that Moore's eyesight is not 
     very blue sensitive. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=175 and weight=

     Alphonsus 1972 Jul 29 UT 00:30-03:30 Observed by Morgan (England, UK) 
     "Orange spot just W. of c.p. on central ridge; circular area @ 15-25km 
     diam, larger than c.p. Was bright orange then turned orange-brown 
     toward center. Central 4,5km was darker than rest; bownish-black with 
     blue-white specks flashing in center. Obscur. there but ridge clear 
     elsewhere. The dark spot SW of c.p. could not be seentho outside of 
     color area. Sketch. It had appearance of dome of atm. thicker at 
     center. Never seen before in 11y. Next nite brighter. NASA catalog

2018-Jul-31 UT 18:45-20:34 Ill=86% 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.

     were negative." NASA catalog weight=3. NASA catalog ID #1338.
