     transparency good) "Observations carried out of the area extending from 
     the Alpine Valley to the Crater Cassini. At 17:12 a pin point bright 
     flash was seen NW of the rim of the crater E in white light. A 2nd pin 
     point flash was also seen at 18:18, this time thru a blue filter. The 
     2nd flash was also seen on the NW rim of the crater E. The observer 
     does not think this was a TLP as the seeing was III, but the flash was 
     so bright as to be startling. Other peaks within the Alps were bright 
     but were much less so in red and ble filters, where the rim of the 
     crater E. NW edge was very bright in all filters, including white 
     light. Incoming cloud prevented further observation." BAA Lunar Section

     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.
