2018-Jul-01 UT 00:19-02:15 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 00:45-02:26 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 01:18-01:55 Ill=93% Unknown observed by Miranova on 1961-7-1

     On 1961 Jul 01 at UT 00:00? an unknown Miranova (Russia or 
     Israel) obtained some spectral photometry of lunar objects. A 
     spectral plate in 425 -> 500nm bands. The Cameron 1978 catalog 
     ID=743 and weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2018-Jul-02 UT 00:17-01:02 Ill=87% 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 01:09-03:01 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 01:09-03:01 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 23:29-00:31 Ill=72% 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-08 UT 04:09-04:33 Ill=31% Aristarchus observed by Bartlett on 1976-10-18 *

     Aristarchus 1976 Oct 18 UT 07:42 Observed by Bartlett (Baltimore, MD, 
     USA, 4.5" reflector and 3" refractor, S=3, T=5) "Inner E. wall 6 deg 
     with very large EWBS at 8deg. No viol. color anywhere & floor was gray 
     at 4 deg (very low). C.p. is only 8 deg. At base of c.p. between peak & 
     advancing shadow a very faint but definite red glow was seen. It was 
     also seen later in the 3" refr. Was confined to W.base of peak & no 
     color on E. base tho. carefully searched for. This red glow was unique 
     in his experience of 28 yrs. His obs. thru. col. 223deg saw nothing 
     more unusual." Cameron 1978 catalog weight=4 and ID #1455.


2018-Jul-09 UT 03:34-04:34 Ill=21% Aristarchus observed by Schmidling on 1964-6-6 *

     On 1964 Jun 28 at UT 08:20-09:10 Schmidling, St Clair, and Platt 
     (Riverdale, New York, USA, 8" reflector, x256) observed in the 
     Aristarchus, Herodotus, Schroter's valley area: two red spot glows, 
     glimmer, looked like ruby gems. Cameron says that the date was 
     predicted by Greenacre and looked for. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=817 
     and weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=4.  


2018-Jul-09 UT 03:20-03:56 Ill=21% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

2018-Jul-15 UT 19:32-19:35 Ill=10% Aristarchus observed by Piazzi_Smyth on 1835-12-22

     In 1835 Dec 22 at UT17:00-18:30 Piazzi-Smyth (Edinburgh, UK) at 18:30UT 
     observed near Aristarchus a bright spot of magnitude 9-10 and at 
     17:00UT Baily (England) observed a star-like point, in Aristarchus. 
     The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=113-114 and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=3. 


2018-Jul-16 UT 19:31-19:44 Ill=19% 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-16 UT 20:00-21:36 Ill=19% Picard observed by Unknown_English_Observer on 1909-5-23 *

     In 1909 May 23 at UT 18:00? an unknown English observer observed a 
     bright spot east of Picard. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=330 and the 
     weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jul-16 UT 20:10-20:14 Ill=19% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

2018-Jul-17 UT 19:30-20:02 Ill=29% 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 19:30-20:02 Ill=29% 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-17 UT 19:57-20:44 Ill=29% Unknown observed by Unknown_Observer on 1900-11-26

     In 1900 Nov 26 at UT 19:00? an unknown observer (in Europe) observed a 
     suspicious obscuring phenom on a dark plain (mare). The cameron 1978 
     catalog ID=307 and the weight=2. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jul-17 UT 20:12-20:44 Ill=29% Grimaldi observed by Johnson_LT on 1951-3-13

     1951 Mar 13 UT 01:35:50 L.T.Johnson (USA) observed a faint flash 
     near W limb in earthshine - just S of Grimaldi. 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1. 


2018-Jul-17 UT 20:09-20:46 Ill=29% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

2018-Jul-18 UT 19:30-19:54 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 19:30-20:10 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 19:30-19:54 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 20:25-21:12 Ill=40% 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.

     reflector, x33, seeing I to II, transparency fair, Hoya linear type 
     polarizer filter) observed that when the filter was used on Mare 
     Crisium, that the north part became a bright gray when turned to 45deg, 
     but when turned the other way it returned to normal. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=3.


2018-Jul-20 UT 19:28-20:17 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 19:28-20:17 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-20 UT 19:31-20:56 Ill=60% Mons_Piton observed by Louderback_D on 1986-10-11

     On 1985 Oct 11 at UT 04:56-05:12 D. Louderback (South Bend, WA, USA, 
     4" refractor, x95, seeing=1-2-1 and transparency=4) detected a change 
     in brightness of Mons Piton point D (his designation) during 04:56-
     04:59. The whole of the east slope was affected - initially bright and 
     then faded and there was a blue colour (detected with filters). The 
     variabilty was 8-11sec (Cameron suspects atmosphere as the altitude was 
     low). The brightness stabilized at 05:12UT, but variability resumed 
     until observing finished. As a comparison Aristillus was not seen to 
     change. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=287 and the weight=1. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=1.


2018-Jul-20 UT 19:45-21:21 Ill=60% W_Limb observed by Barrett on 1973-12-2

     On 1973 Dec 02 at UT 22:17:33 Barrett and Brick (New York, 3.5" Questar 
     freflector) observed an occultation of Kappa Aquari, a wide double 
     star, on the western limb. The star faded perceptably before 
     disappearing. Cameron says that the fact that the star was a double was 
     not an explanation - she says that there are many reports of similar 
     fades for single stars. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1384 and weight=4. 
     The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2018-Jul-21 UT 19:27-19:59 Ill=70% 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 19:27-20:36 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
     weight=3.


2018-Jul-21 UT 19:27-21:43 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, 
     x120, no spurious colour seen, seeing I) observed that the central 
     peaks of Alphonsus looked bright at 22:16UT but had dimmed by 22:22UT. 
     The three dark patches on the floor of Alphonsus were clearly seen. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     On 2001 Jun 29 at UT 22:16-22:20 C. Brook (Plymouth, UK, seeing 
     conditions very good, x120) reported that the central peak of Alphonsus 
     was brighter than the central peak of Arzachel (or was it the other way 
     around?). Cook observed 4 hours later from Washington DC, USA and found 
     that on CCD images that the central peak of Alphonsus was only slightly 
     less than that of Arzachel. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

2018-Jul-24 UT 19:43-21:29 Ill=92% Herodotus observed by Haas_W on 2003-5-13

     On 2003 May 13 at UT06:40-07:26 W. Haas (Las Cruces, NM, USA, 12.5" 
     reflector, x321 and x202, S=2, T=3.5) suspected (06:40-06:55UT) that he 
     saw an oval bright feature (intensity 5.5) near the centre of the floor 
     of Herodotus crater indenting into the shadow - however the seeing was 
     none too good, so it is more of a suspicion than a definite sighting. 
     At 07:14-07:26UT he re-examined the region (x202 and x321, S=1-2 and T=
     3.5) and had better glimpses that conformed his initial suspicions of 
     there being an oval indentation bright spot (now intensity 6) into the 
     shadow in the centre of the floor. Of course Herodotus does not have a 
     central peak! There was also a very bright spot on the NW> sunlit rim 
     of Herodotus crater. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     reflector, x200, x360, x624, atmospheric clarity good, seeing 
     III from 20:15-22:30, but the clouded out at 22:30, and from 
     23:15-01:15 seeing was IV-V with poor transparency) observed 
     (22:20-20:45 UT) variation in the SE corner of the 
     Aristarchus, namely the usual dark bands were alternating 
     light to dark, not in keeping with otyher crater features. 
     This effect was not linked to atmospheric turbulence. Also 
     projected image of bands beyond the crater W. wall were 
     repeatedly noted. The observer broke away from observing at 
     20:45UT to make a telephonealert call. At 20:55UT they noted 
     that the area between Vallis Schroteri and Herodotus seemed 
     very light/bright, also the E. exterior of the crater wall of 
     Herodotus. From 21:01-21:11 A slight blueness was seen to 
     extend from the NE corner of Aristarchus, along the exterior 
     rim, acrossand beyond Herodotus to the SW. A tgorough search 
     was made of many bright areas, both near the terminator and to 
     the E., but no blueness could be detected elsewhere. A slight 
     orange hue was noted along the E. limb of theMoon (Spurious 
     colour). From 21:18;22:30 Aristarchus seemed normal again, and 
     likewise the head of Vallis Schoteri too. The observer was 
     clouded out from 22:30-23:15and from 23:15-01:30 the seeing 
     was so appaling that no colour or projection of the bands 
     could be seen. A Moon Blink was used during the session, but 
     no colour was detected in this? Another observer, R.W. Rose 
     (Devon, UK) observed 21:20-21:30 but had IV seeing, and saw 
     nothing unusual, but commented that if TLP wactivity had been 
     taking place, then they would probably not have seen it. The

     (Guilford, UK, binoculars), Foley (Dartford, Kent, UK, 12" reflector 
     and photographs), and McKay (Kingston, England, UK, 6" reflector, x48) 
     observed the following in Aristarchus during a lunar eclipse: "It 
     appeared much fainter than ever before seen in ecl. by Moore. Fainter 
     than Proc., Cop., & Tycho. Others rated brightness in order-- Hell, 
     Stevinus, Furnerius, proc.; & Proc., Tycho, Hell, Aris. Photos 
     confirmed dimness of it. For some observers it became invis. at S=II 
     (good). Good ranked at least 4 other craters brighter than Aris. & that 
     at 2035h it dimmed. Earthshine cond. extraordinarily good. Peters, at

     (Springfield, VA, 4.5" reflector, S=7) observed four glowing spots on 
     the Moon during a lunar eclipse (including Aristarchus). At 23:50UT 
     Aristarchus was an oval shape with no details seen. It had a ray 
     extending from the south west rim (normal). The north rim was slightly 
     blue and the south west rim very very slightly red. At 23:55UT it was 
     clearing and details showed. At 00:02UT it was clear. Sketches were 
     provided. Cameron comments that the colours fit Fitton's predictions on 
     spectral dispersion in our atmosphere from atmospheric inversions. The 
     brightness measued was 10+ and normal should be 9, and the plain is 
     4.5. The Moon's altitude at the LeCroy site was 45 deg. The Cameron

     brightened but others didn't. Times between brightening were 6-8s. 
     Similar to seeing fluctuations. In red mt stayed dull & steady. In blue 
     it blinked." - this is a direct quote from the Cameron 2006 catalog 
     because it is very difficult to summarize. Louderback comments that the 
     TLP was still going on at 09:00UT. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=406 and 
     the weight=4. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     Mare Crisium 1962 Jul 19 UTC 07:30 Observed by Wildey & Pohn (Mt 
     Wilson, CA, USA, 60" reflector + Photometer) "Photometric meas. showed 
     change in brightness from Vmag=3.46 to V=3.07, where av. mag. for that 
     age=3.26, or a brightening of .58 mag." NASA catalog weight=5 (very

2018-Jul-30 UT 02:00-03:46 Ill=96% Aristarchus observed by Moseley_R on 1984-11-10

     On 1984 Nov 10 at UT19:15-19:50 R. Moseley (Coventry, UK, the Moon's 
     altitude was low) noticed that the region from the central peak and 
     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 
     illustrates bands on either side with bright patch. The Cameron 2006 
     catalog ID=252 and the weight=2. The ALPO/BAA weight=2. 


2018-Jul-31 UT 00:20-00:53 Ill=91% Posidonius observed by Schmidt_J on 1849-2-11

     Posidonius 1849 Feb 11 UT 02:00? Observed by Schmidt (Athens, Greece, 
     7" refractor) "Bright little crater in it was shadowless. Schroter saw 
     repeated changes in it & others & once saw this crater's shadow 
     replaced by a gray veil. Gruithuisen saw the same thing as Schroter in 
     1821." NASA catalog weight=4 (high). NASA catalog ID #128. ALPO/BAA 
     weight=3.
