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-01 UT 23:24-01:02 Ill=88% 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-02 UT 04:42-05:36 Ill=87% Copernicus observed by De_Groof on 1989-1-26

     On 1989 Jan 26 at UT 03:45 De Groof (Belgium) noted a white few second 
     long flash from Copernicus crater. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=347 and 
     weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2018-Jul-02 UT 21:38-21:58 Ill=81% Plato observed by Pickering_WH on 1904-8-1

     On 1904 Aug 01 at 05:00? Pickering (Echo Mt., CA, USA) UT Plato: 
     "Bright hazy obj., 2" diam. on floor, Obs before & after were normal". 
     The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=318 and the weight=4. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=3. 


2018-Jul-02 UT 21:38-23:11 Ill=81% 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.


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 04:31-05:36 Ill=79% Plato observed by Foley_PW on 1975-6-28

     Plato 1975 Jun 28/29 UT 23:00-01:20. Foley (Wilmington, UK, 12" 
     reflector, seeing, III, good clarity transparency). At 23:00, 
     00:30, and 01:15 blue was seen on the inner wall:floor southern 
     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 
     weight=1.


2018-Jul-03 UT 21:21-00:37 Ill=73% 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.

     "Hazy broad line of light seen fr. NW wall to SE wall over shad. 
     floor. Gone next nite at 0120. He gave low wt. to obs. (sunlight 
     between peaks?)." NASA catalog weight=1. NASA catalog ID #553. 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jul-04 UT 04:41-05:36 Ill=71% Plato observed by Foley_PW on 1975-6-29

     Plato 1975 Jun 29/30 UT 23:05-00:30. Foley (Wilmington, UK, 12" 
     reflector, seeing, III, good clarity transparency). At 23:05, 
     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.


2018-Jul-04 UT 04:48-05:36 Ill=71% Aristarchus observed by Brook_C on 2004-12-3

     Aristarchus 2004 Dec 03 UT 00:00-01:00 Observed by Brook (Plymouth, 
     England, 60mm OG x120) "Fluctuation in the brightness in Aristarchus 
     still present but less pronounced than yesterday. Also saw the bright 
     short ray on the opposite side to the main ray in Aristarchus that 
     Amato saw yesterday - but this may be normal?" BAA Lunar Section 
     report.


2018-Jul-07 UT 04:46-05:36 Ill=41% Grimaldi observed by Beaumont_S on 1998-3-22

     Grimaldi 1998 Mar 22 UT05:15-06:00 S. Beaumont (Windermere, UK, 
     127mm rich field refractor, seeing III, transparency Good) 
     observed that the northern half of Grimaldi seemed much lighter 
     than the southern half. She comments that she has seen this 
     before in last quarter phases, but it was really quite marked 
     how lighter the northern half was on this occasion. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=1.

     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

2018-Jul-09 UT 04:33-05:36 Ill=20% 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 03:06-05:10 Ill=20% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

2018-Jul-16 UT 16:30-18:25 Ill=17% Angstrom observed by Smith on 1985-4-23

     On 1985 Apr 23 at UT20:00 Smith (England, UK) found two large glows in 
     Earthshine, one was somewhere in the vicinity of Gruithuisen (i.e. 
     between Aristarchus and Sinus Iridum). The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=263 
     and weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     On 1985 Apr 23 at UT20:00 Smith (England, UK) found two large glows in 
     Earthshine, one was west of Bullialdus crater. The Cameron 2006 catalog 
     ID=263 and weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Jul-16 UT 17:48-18:35 Ill=18% 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 16:49-18:37 Ill=18% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

2018-Jul-17 UT 17:12-18:52 Ill=27% N_Pole observed by Chernov_VM on 1977-9-17

     On 1977 Sep 17 at 16:30UT V.M. Chernov (Soviet Union) observed the 
     northern cusp of the Moon to be elongated more than 180deg ashen light. 
     This was 4.3 days after new Moon. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Jul-17 UT 17:21-19:17 Ill=27% Aristarchus observed by Holmes_D on 1989-2-10

     On 1989 Feb 10 at UT 18:15-18:40 Holmes and Wooler (Lancashire, 
     UK, 22cm Newtonian, x155) found Aristarchus to be bright, but so 
     too was Prinz. However in a 2nd observing session at 21:05-21:10 
     an area near crater both regions werestill visible but fainter. 
     The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=350 and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=1.

     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 18:06-19:37 Ill=28% 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 18:28-20:46 Ill=28% 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-18 UT 17:59-19:54 Ill=38% 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 17:59-19:54 Ill=38% 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 18:15-20:10 Ill=38% 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 20:25-20:36 Ill=39% 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 20:25-20:36 Ill=39% Hecataeus 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

     telescope, x80-x130, atmosphere hazey - poor transparency) noticed that 
     the east side rims were slightly fuzzy and suspects that this might 
     have been due to the illumination angle. A.C. Cook (Frimley, UK) 
     obtained some CCD images that revealed that the effect was to some

2018-Jul-20 UT 18:22-20:17 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?).

     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.

     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.

     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.


2018-Jul-21 UT 18:59-20:40 Ill=70% Arzachel observed by Brook_C on 2001-6-29

     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-21 UT 19:08-20:37 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

2018-Jul-24 UT 00:07-00:59 Ill=87% SW_Limb observed by Logue_DA on 1955-1-5

     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.

     On 1976 Nov 03 at UT20:00-21:40 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK) reported a TLP in 
     Gassendi - some obsevers detected colour, others did not. P. Moore did 
     not notice anything unsual earlier at 18:50-19:00, though his seeing 
     was IV-V. Nor did he see anything unsual from 21:53-00:20, but seeing 
     was still IV-V. D. Jewitt, observing 20:34-21:25 and 22:55-23:20 also 
     reported nothing unusual. Amery (Reading, UK, 25cm reflector, x300) did 
     however notice a small reddish spot to west of central ridge, but by 
     20:30UT the colour was less obvious, but the spot was back again at 
     20:45, but not easily seen at 21:00 and gone completely by 21:45UT.  
     N.Bryant (Ilfracombe, UK, 25.4cm reflector, x260), observed 3 red 
     patches on the floor between 20:54 and 21:31UT. A BAA Lunar Section

2018-Jul-24 UT 17:35-18:47 Ill=92% Manilius_B observed by Robinson_JH on 1980-8-22

     On 1980 Aug 22 at 02:15-21:29UT J-H Robinson (Teighmouth, Devon, UK, 
     12" reflector, x200, seeing=II) noticed in the area south east of 
     Manilius that it was brighter in red light than in blue light at 
     20:15UT whereas 1 minute later it was the same brightness in each 
     filter. The effect reappeared at 20:21UT and was particularly strong at 
     20:32UT. Foley (Kent, UK) verified this at 21:01UT - the blink area was 
     of high reflectivity in white light and was bright in red at 21:15UT, 
     thougjh the south east area stopped giving a colour reaction at 
     21:25UT. Madej (Huddersfield) found Manilius B to be norm al at 23:52UT 
     however at 23:55UT it was surrounded by a transient white ring that 
     varied in visibility in an irregular way. Foley found Manilius B had a 
     vivid blue interior and in blue light the ring was black. and not at 
     all seen in red or white light. The CED brightness measurement varied 
     from 1.9 to 2.4. All other regions observed were normal in brightness. 
     Violet was seen on the west wall of Aristarchus though. M.Price 
     (Camberley, UK) found a possible blink in Manilius B but was observing 
     under poor seeing conditions. Cameron 2006 catalog ID=105 and weight=5. 
     ALPO/BAA weight=4.


2018-Jul-24 UT 17:55-18:12 Ill=92% Deslandres observed by Penzel_E on 1965-5-12

     On 1965 May 12 at UT 19:10 E. Penzel (Rodewisch, East Germany) was 
     taking a sequence of images during the impact of the Soviet Lunik 5. He 
     detected a tens of km scale elongated cloud after the impact over a 
     duration of 9.5 minutes. However there are differences between the 
     images elsewhere on the Moon, possibly due to different exposures or 
     some other effects and it is not 100% sure that what he detected was 
     impact debris/cloud?. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2018-Jul-24 UT 19:34-21:29 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.

     On 1965 May 12 at UT 22:20 H. Miles (UK) found a possible 
     obscuration in Bailly crater. Most of the region was as sharp as 
     normal, but the central area was greyish and blurred. Although 
     the observer concerned considered themselves a non-experienced 
     observer, another BAA Lunar Section observer saw the same

     On 1985 May 02 at UT 20:20-20:38 J.D. Cook (Frimley, UK) noted at 20:20 
     found the south rim (and just outside) to be blurred in appearence and 
     there was also a hazy shadow inside the crater. M.C. Cook found a 
     "break in clarity in break on S wall". Miles (UK) also found the south 
     wall blurred in appearance and Foley (Kent, UK) noted that the area was 
     featureless and the 2 craters positions at 1 o'clock high up on the 
     inner wall were obscured", although just north of these was sharp 
     detail. Foley also recorded that the shadow on the east wall was 
     opaque"and that thye inside of Aristarchus was slate/blue in colour and 
     dull, however by 20:28 the crater had brightened by 0.4 steps on 
     Foley's CED device and the missing craterlets were visible again. Jean 
     (Canada, 4" refractor) observed a rose colour intermittently (UT 1948-
     20:58) - however Cameron suspects that this is chromatic aberation.

     Coude Rrefractor, x250, Royal Grenwwich Observatory, 
     Herstmonceux, UK, seeing V, Transparency: Fair). 19:40-19:55 
     image very unsteady. All seems normal in other crtaters with 
     the exception of Arcimedes. Much of the rim seems indistinct 
     apart from a 1/4 length of the west rim. Strongly suspected 
     that this was due to a combination of seeing and illumination. 
     UT 20:02-20:06 - checked the area with a lower magnification 
     10" Astrographic Refractor - the crater seems more normal, so 
     suggesting that the theory was correct. 20:36-20:41 returned 
     to the 30" reflector, and the crater appeared similar to the 
     start of the session. This is almost certainly not a TLP, but 
     it would be helpful to have some images or sketches to check 
     this theory out. Weight=1.

2018-Jul-25 UT 23:37-01:34 Ill=97% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1975-5-23

     Aristarchus 1975 May 23 P.W. Foley (Wilmington, UK, 12" 
     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 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     (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 
     S=IV (fair?) rated Aris. brightest". At 23:50UT LeCroy Jr and Sr 
     (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

     spots on the Moon during a lunar eclipse (including Aristarchus). At 
     23:50UT 3 of these patches emerged from the dark and appeared as bright 
     spots compared to other craters "Älbedo=10+". The Albedos of Manilius 
     and Delambre were 8.5 at 00:05UT. Details became apparent in all 3

     On 1975 Nov 18/19 at UT 23:15-0005 LeCroy Jr and Sr (Springfield, VA, 
     4.5" reflector, S=7) observed that Menelaus was one of four glowing 
     spots on the Moon during a lunar eclipse (including Aristarchus). At 
     23:50UT 3 of these patches emerged from the dark and appeared as bright 
     spots compared to other craters "Älbedo=10+". At 23:55UT a ray appeared 
     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 
     appeared very dark at the point that the ray was extending from SW edge 
     (a ridge there) and apperared to obscure features along its path 
     (Albedo=9). The Albedos of Manilius and Delambre were 8.5 at 00:05UT. 
     At 00:05UT the rays were still apparent but seemed to have returned to 
     normal. Details became apparent in all 3 features. The Cameron 1978 
     catalog ID=1419 abd weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.
