     On 1985 May 24 at UT 21:01-22:40 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK, 12" reflector) 
     observed that Aristarchus was very bright (varied) and had a strong 
     (transient) red/rose colour and the crater floor was glowing. Detail 
     was visible. Mobberley (Suffolk, UK) also found the floor of the crater 
     to be "glowing". Photographs of Earthshine excellent. The Cameron 2006 
     catalog ID=274 and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2018-Aug-17 UT 17:48-18:44 Ill=44% Aristarchus observed by d_Adhuda on 1891-11-7

     On 1891 Nov 07 at UT=19:00 d'Adjuda of Lisbon, Portugal (seeing fair)

     On 1984 Jul 04 UT 22:08-23:09 Foley (12" reflector, Kent, UK) found 
     that Censorinus gave a low brightness CED reading of 58%, despite all 
     other measured points on the Moon as being normal. M. Cook (Frimley, 
     UK) found Censorinus to be extremely dull compared to Proclus. J.D. 
     Cook (Frimley, UK) found Censorinus to be quite dull, barely above 
     background levels. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=246 and the weight=4.

2018-Aug-17 UT 17:48-17:52 Ill=44% Theophilus observed by Richardson on 1984-7-4

     On 1984 Jul 04 at UT 22:05-23:09 Richardson (Swinton, Yorkshire, UK, 
     seeing=VE) found that a peak west of Theophilus crater had a deep blue 
     colour, and this was strange because no colour was seen elsewhere on 
     the Moon. Foley (Kent, UK, 12" reflector), once alerted, found a dome 
     east of Kant? to be blue, and likewise no colour was seen elsewhere on 
     the Moon. Cameron 2006 catalog ID=246 and the weight=4. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=3.

     On 1984 Jul 04 UT 22:08-23:09 Foley (12" reflector, Kent, UK) found 
     that Torricelli B was a much lower brightness than was expected and 
     this remained the case for the rest of the lunation. The Cameron 2006 
     catalog ID=246 and the weight=4. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2018-Aug-18 UT 17:46-17:49 Ill=54% Messier observed by Robinson_JH on 1982-12-22

     On 1982 Dec 22 at UT 19:20-20:10 J-H Robinson (Teighmouth, Devon, UK, 
     10" reflector, x150, seeing=IV-V) could not distinguish between Messier 
     and Messier A. The tail of these features was very bright - two 
     telescopes were used. Moore (Selsey, UK, 12" reflector, seeing=III) 
     could see Messier A but found Messier itself obscured - just see the 
     west wall and thought that the comet like tail was unusual as it did 
     not appear divided. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=192 and weight=5. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2018-Aug-19 UT 17:44-18:47 Ill=64% Mare_Frigoris observed by Pratt_H on 1871-11-20

     On 1871 Nov 20 at UT 17:30-19:30 H. Pratt (UK) saw one of the most 
     spectacular TLP obscurations that he had ever seen in Mare Frigoras. He 
     observed a kind of haze around the north west (NE?) slopes of Plato. 
     This effect was not seen elsewhere and all objects in Mare Frigoris 
     were indistinct or veiled. By 18:30 the effect was modified and by 
     19:30 very little trace was seen. Ref. from Corliss.

     (Selsey, England) "Following an alert call by Miles concerning the 
     crater Proclus looking different, Cook observed a circular dark patch 
     that filled about half of the eastern half of the crater floor. To cut 
     down the glare a blue filter was then used and a slightly less dark 
     area was seen extending from this in a southerly direction. 8 rays were 
     seen. The dark patch was confirmed by Patrick Moore. However David 
     Darling (USA) who observed a few hours later on 1989 Jul 14 at 03:28 UT

     On 1938 Jan 16 at UT 00:00 Barker (Chestnut, England, UK, 12.5" 
     reflector) noticed that Plato crater had a brownish-gold veined 
     surface, colour irregular - laid on a smooth floor. The Cameron

2018-Aug-25 UT 20:06-21:25 Ill=100% Torricelli_B observed by Foley_PW on 1985-9-28

     On 1985 Sep 28 UTC 20:54-23:52 P.W. Foley (Suffolk, UK) found (actually 
     before 20:54 UT) brightness variance in Torricelli B. J.D. Cook 
     (Frimley, UK) observed a brief blue coloured patch somewhere in the 
     Torricelli B region, but could not pin it down precisely. At 22:50UT 
     M.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, 30cm reflector, seeing III - occasionally V, 
     transparency moderate to good) Found the crater to have an elongated 
     appearance (in SSW-NNE direction) in white light, similar to the 
     previous night. A bright elongated spot was seen on the NNE floor, 
     close to where the wall should be. Not able to define the rim. There 
     was a very dark surrounding area to the crater, similar to what it was 
     on the previous night (roughly 1/4 brightness of Censorinus). 23:04UT 
     brighter in yellow, then red, then blue. At 23:10 it was seen that blue 
     filter dulled the crater - this was odd because both Censorinus and 
     Proclus were brighter in blue, which is what he would normally expect. 
     At23:15 UT Censorinus was brighter in blue, then yellow then red 
     filters and some orange spurious colour seen to the south of 
     Censorinus. At 23:23UT no spurious colour seen on Proclus or 
     Censorinus. 23:46UT Torricelli B elongated as before, but a very faint 
     ray might have been seen to the south west of the rim. This report is 
     not in the 2006 Cameron catalog. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.
