2018-Jul-03 UT 02:51-03:01 Ill=79% 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 02:51-03:01 Ill=79% 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 04:32-06:07 Ill=79% Plato observed by Foley_PW on 1975-6-28

     boundary, and red on the corresponding northern floor:wall 
     boundary. However by 01:20, blue was now on the S-NW floor:wall 
     boundary, and red on the NE-SE floor:wall boundary. Atmospheric 
     spectral dispersion existed in many regions, but did not change 
     like the colours in Plato. Similar appearance craters such as 
     Grimaldi, Schickard, and Riccioli, were checked for a similar 
     change in colour, but no change was noticed in these. ALPO/BAA

     Aristarchus 2004 Dec 02 UT 03:00 Observed bt Michael Amato (West Haven, 
     CT, USA, 127mm Maksutov, x123) "The brightness variation (as seen by 
     Brook earlier) was very apparent. One thing never seen before by Amato 
     was a thin short bright ray that extended out in the opposite direction 
     as Aristarchus bright ray". The higher the Moon climbed in the sky the 
     more obvious this short thin bright ray became. An ALPO report.

     blue was seen on the inner wall:floor southern boundary, and red 
     on the corresponding northern floor:wall boundary. However by 
     00:30, blue was now on the W floor:wall boundary, and red on the 
     E floor:wall boundary. Atmospheric spectral dispersion existed 
     in many regions, but did not change like the colours in Plato. 
     Similar appearance craters such as Grimaldi, Schickard, and 
     Riccioli, were checked for a similar change in colour, but no 
     change was noticed in these. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     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 20:01-21:42 Ill=29% Aristarchus observed by Wisniewski_M on 1988-3-23 *

     On 1988 Mar 23 at UT 01:15-01:30 M. Wisniewski (Chicago, IL, USA, S=F) 
     observed that Aristarchus was the brightest (mag 5), and only feature 
     visible in Earthshine. It had the appearance of a steady blue-white 
     star like point. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA) though observed other 
     features as well: Proclus, Theophilus, Cyrillus and Censorinus - all of 
     which were normal. The cameron 2006 catalog ID=319 and the weight=0. 
     The ALPO/BAA weight-1. 


2018-Jul-17 UT 20:01-20:02 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 20:01-20:02 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-18 UT 20:02-20:10 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 20:25-22:20 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.

2018-Jul-18 UT 22:19-22:31 Ill=40% Santbech observed by Rogers_G on 1994-6-14

     On 1994 Jun 14 UT 21:45-22:00 G.Rogers (Crendon, UK, 3" Zeiss 
     refractor, sky conditions perfectly clear) reported seeing three 
     very large whitish clouds against the Moon. The strongest seemed 
     to "stem" from the vicinity of Santbech crater (crater 
     identified the next day from an atlas), and was a milk chocolate 
     colour near the stem. The other two large clouds were to the 
     north - in the general area of Mare Fecunditatis and Mare 
     Crisium though perhaps slightly further west and in contact with 
     the terminator? The effect was confirmed (independently) by 4 
     other observers using the same telescope. The telescope was 
     moved but the clouds remained in the same position over the 
     Moon. This report comes from The Astronomer Jan 2013 p 230. 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jul-18 UT 22:28-00:24 Ill=40% Proclus observed by Darling_D on 1989-2-11

     On 1989 Feb 11 at UT23:30-01:39 D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 12.5" 
     reflector, x159, seeing=7/10) observed a linear east to west feature in 
     Proclus. D. Weier (WI, USA, 11" reflector, x378) found the NNW part of 
     the crater to be brighter than expected and confirmed the prescence of 
     the east to west feature - this crossed the shadow on the east floor 
     and over into Mare Crisium. R. Manske (WI, USA) detected another 
     "streak" parallel to this. All observers suspect that the linear 
     features were due to raised topography on the floor of Proclus - 
     however Cameron comments that there does not seem to be any linear 
     features on the floor of Proclus to cause these effects. The Cameron 
     2006 catalog ID=351 and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=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.

2018-Jul-20 UT 20:05-20:17 Ill=61% 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 20:05-20:17 Ill=61% 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

     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

2018-Jul-21 UT 00:37-01:10 Ill=62% Mons_Pico observed by Quinn on 1986-11-9

     On 1986 Nov 09 at UT 23:00 Quinn (Glebview, IL, USA, 8" reflector, x49-
     x305) found ´n the vicinity of an unnamed ridge points toward Pico- two 
     bright points about 5 magnitudes brighter than any other part of the 
     Moon. The Alpine valley points directly between these two points. "Came 
     from apparently featureless area. Both points about the same size, but 
     different shapes ~ width of alpine valley" The observer used 4 
     different eyepieces and the points were brightest in the lowest power. 
     Other specks of light could be seen in the darkness wound the N point.

     On 1975 May 18 at UT2115-2145 C. Lord (St Annes-on-sea, 
     Lancashire, UK, 76mm f/16 refractor, x170, Wratten 25, and 44a 
     Moon blink filters used, Transparency 4.5/5, no wind, S=F). The 
     west flank of Maginus, and the interior, appeared to be partly 
     obscured. No other features in a similar position along the 
     terminator were obscured. No colour blink was detected with the 
     filters, though a pronounced red/white light blink was noted; the 
     device employed a N.D. x4 filter. By 21:45UT the floor was no 
     longer obscured and only Magninus G was masked in a white haze; 
     however immediately adjacent to the terminator was an ill defined 
     misty patch lying where the outer flank of maginus would have 
     been visible. The rest of the terminator was sharp. The 
     obscuration was only seen to advantage in blue and int. light, 
     and the blue/int blink was only very slight. Findlay and 
     McDonnell observed 21:30-23:00 using a 25cm refractor (Seeing II-
     III) but failed to see anything unsual. NASA catalog weight=3.

     77mm refractor, x83,x250, seeing II-III, transparency fair). 
     After studying the whole length of this valley, the observer saw 
     a change in "albedo" and a small change in colour of the valley 
     floor near to the Plato end. This colour was not seen in a 
     yellow Wratten 15 filter but was noted in a purple Wratten 35

     reflector, 3" refractor, x90, seeing=3/10 and transparancy=5) noted 
     that there was a dark patch of brightness 4.5 on the south east of 
     Proclus - it was not as dark as it was on 1988 Jul 22. Cameon comments 
     that the dark patch is normal. The north rim of Proclus was 9.0 in 
     brightness, the floor had a brightness of 6.0, the west rim and south 
     wall were both 7.5. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=352 and the weight=0.

2018-Jul-21 UT 20:06-20:37 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

     On 1955 Jan 05 at 01:00-01:30 UT D.A. Logue (Larchment, PA, 
     USA, 15cm reflector at x340, seeing Good) saw a strange blue 
     light above the surface of the Moon where the night and the 
     day meet. He observed this light for more than 30 min and it 
     did not appear to move. It appeared like a star in that the 
     rays of light came from it. The observer adds that he first 
     thought thst the objects was a star, but later decided that it 
     had to be on the Moon itself. A drawing shows the blue spot 
     near the rugged south west (IAU?) limb of the Moon. The editor 
     of the Strolling Astronomer (Vol 8, No. 11-12, Nov-Dec 1954, 
     p146) was unable to identify the craters drawn. The editor 
     speculates that the observer saw a high mountain peak with its 
     summit in sunlight and detached from the illuminated regions - 
     however this would not explain the blue colour. Note this is 
     an ALPO observation and does not apear in the Cameron 
     catalogs. ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     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

     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

     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

     out of the north east rim of menelaus (Normal?). It appeared just 
     before the artea emerged and increased in brightness. At 23:58UT it 
     decreased and continued to do so. The north east edge of Menelaus

     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-Jul-31 UT 01:47-02:17 Ill=90% Aristarchus observed by Brook_C on 2002-5-30

     On 2002 May 30 at UT02:30-02:44 C. Brook (Plymouth, UK) suspected that 
     Aristarchus crater looked dimmer than normal. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jul-31 UT 03:11-05:03 Ill=90% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1975-11-21

     Aristarchus 1975 Nov 18-19 UT 23:30-00:30? Observed by Foley (Kent, 
     England, 12" reflector) "Deep blue-viol. spot in NW (IAU ?) interior 
     corner. (seen occasionally with obscur. but dates not given)." NASA 
     catalog weight=3 (average). NASA catalog ID #1421."


2018-Jul-31 UT 03:35-05:28 Ill=90% Plato observed by Marshall on 1984-11-11

     On 1984 Nov 11 at UT21:00? Marshall (England) noted that there was no 
     normal brightness on the floor to most southernmost craterlet. The 
     Cameron 2006 catalog ID=253 and the weight=2. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jul-31 UT 04:42-05:54 Ill=90% Aristarchus observed by Louderback_D on 1980-8-29

     On 1980 Aug 29 at UT07:32 D. Loudernack (South Bend, WA, USA, 8" 
     reflector, x140) found the south wall to have a broad dark band (only 
     visible in red light) at its base that covered nearly all of the 
     southern half of the crater. The brightness reading was 8.4 (in blue 
     light) and 4 (in red light). Cameron 2006 catalog ID=107 and weight=3. 
     ALPO/BAA weight=3.
