     On 1990 Feb 28 at UT 00:05-00:13 D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 3" 
     refractor, c36) observed Aristarchus "flare up several times 2x > 
     before". Cameron suspects that this is due to cloud cover reflectivity 
     on the limb of the Earth. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=391 and the 
     weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     Om 1990 Mar 01 at UT 00:59-02:20 D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 3" 
     refractor, x36) observed that Aristarchus could barely be seen, but at 
     02:15 UT it brightened by about two times. Note that brightening might 
     refer to Lambert - it is worded in an ambiguous way in Cameron's 
     catalog). The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=392 and weight=0. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=1. 


2018-Aug-15 UT 12:54-14:20 Ill=22% Lambert observed by Fryback_D on 1990-3-1

     Om 1990 Mar 01 at UT 00:59-02:20 D. Fryback (Madison, WI, USA, 8" 
     reflector) observed that Lambert was a star-like point, but later saw 
     it brighten up (02:15UT) by two times (note that this brightening might 
     refer to Aristarchus - it is worded in an ambiguous way in Cameron's 
     catalog). The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=392 and 
     weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=1. 


2018-Aug-15 UT 12:54-13:14 Ill=22% Aristarchus observed by Cook_AC on 1991-1-19

     On 1991 Jan 29 at UT17:56-18:01 A.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, 20cm reflector 
     + image intensified CCD camera, transparency moderate to very poor) 
     observed that Aristarchus was fainter than a nearby magnitude 7.3 star 
     (SAO 146315) and may have varied in brightness and size. However the 
     image intensifier output was quite grainy. No obvious signs of impact 
     flashes or cosmic rays seen during a visual inspection of the video 
     tape recorded. Foley commented that from UT 18:53-19:10 the Earthshine 
     was strong with the naked eye and Aristarchus was bright as expected. 
     The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=418 and weight=0. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2018-Aug-15 UT 12:54-13:14 Ill=22% Grimaldi observed by Cook_AC on 1991-1-19

     On 1991 Jan 29 at UT17:56-18:01 A.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, 20cm reflector 
     + image intensified CCD camera, transparency moderate to very poor) 
     observed that a bright spot near Griomaldi appeared to vary in 
     brightness - however a possible explanation was found because the image 
     intensifier was found to vary in sensitivity across its imaging 
     surface. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=418 and weight=0. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=1.


2018-Aug-15 UT 12:59-14:14 Ill=22% Aristarchus observed by Schroter on 1788-12-2

     catalog ID=51 and the weight=4. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2018-Aug-15 UT 13:32-14:20 Ill=22% Proclus_C observed by Kolovos_G on 1985-5-23

     Proclus C region 1985 May 23 UT 17:41 Photographed by Kolovos (observer 
     from Thessoloniki, Greece, observing site near Bafra Serrain, Greece, 
     4"refractor, seeing excellent) "Observer took a series of expousres on 
     a portable scope of the Moon. On one of them a very bright slightly 
     elliptical spot was seen. Spot was very close to the Proclus C crater. 
     Upon analysis it was claimed that the spot of light had rotated the 
     direction of illumination of shadows in adjacent craters - however 
     subsequent analysis casts doubt on this. Papers on this report
     were published in Icarus. Rast and Maley suggested that it was sun 
     glint off a spinning US ex-military weather satellite that just by 
     chance came across the field of view of the Moon a few tens of seconds 
     around the time of the photographed flash. Was this a coincidence or
     not? If it were a satellite sun-glint then the satellite would have to 
     be tumbling incredibly fast in order for the flash to be so sharp in 
     the photograph - so the satellite explanation is not completely 100% 
     confirmed." The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=273 and the weight=5. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Aug-15 UT 13:55-14:20 Ill=22% Aristarchus observed by Barcroft on 1949-5-2

     In 1949 May 02 at UT 03:30-04:00 Barcroft (Madera, CA, USA, 10" 
     reflector, x96) observed in Aristarchus crater, in Earthshine, a 
     dull glow -- silvery phosphorescence.This was not visible for 30 
     min prior. Cameron comments that this is a confirmation of 
     Wilkins TLP from a few hours earlier? The Cameron 1978 catalog 
     ID=519 and weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Aug-15 UT 14:16-14:20 Ill=22% Aristarchus observed by Darling_D on 1990-6-27

     refractor, x36) reported that the crater had "Flared up at 0225 as a 
     point of light then went down" - the effect was fairly brief. 
     Earthshine was quite clearly seen and all features elsewhere were 
     normal. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=405 and the weight=0. The ALPo/BAA 
     weight=1.

2018-Aug-16 UT 13:32-14:56 Ill=32% Aristarchus observed by Eastman on 1965-10-30

     On 1965 Oct 30 at UT 0200 Eastman (Palos Verdes, CA, USA, 12" 
     reflector) observed a brightening in Aristarchus in ashen light. The 
     photographs that were taken show it. The phenomenon was seen each 
     lunation since July. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=908 and weight=5. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Aug-16 UT 14:01-16:08 Ill=32% Posidonius observed by Gruithuisen_F on 1821-4-7 *

     Posidonius 1821 Apr 07 UTC 18:00? Observed by Gruithuisen (Munich, 
     Germany) "Small bright crater in it was shadowless. Schroter also saw 
     it shadowless several X" NASA catalog weight=4 (good). NASA catalog ID

2018-Aug-16 UT 14:22-14:56 Ill=32% Montes_Recti observed by Smith_G on 2009-3-1

     On 2009 Mar 01 at UT 18:50-21:00 G. Smith (East Yorkshire, UK, 127mm 
     Maksutov Cassegrain telescope with zoom eyepiece and later a Plossl 
     eyepiece) observed an area between Plato and Sinus Iridum to be glowing 
     as a bright nebulous patch. It was brighter than anything else in 
     Eartshine. A change in eyepiece did not affect the appearance of the 
     nebulous patch. The patch had faded somewhat by 21:00UT. The observers 
     brother attempted to observe the patch through a 114mm reflector at 
     20:30UT but the optics were of poor quality and the effect was not 
     seen. BAA observers were alerted, but only after the event had faded - 
     they made observations from 22:00-23:46 UT but failed to detect 
     anything unusual in the region concerned. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.
     This may have been a mis-identification with Aristarchus - however 
     we cannot be 100% sure.


2018-Aug-16 UT 14:53-16:08 Ill=32% Aristarchus observed by Gridley on 1965-7-4 *

     In 1965 Jul 04 at UT 03:53-05:59 Gridley, Welch (West Covina, CA, USA, 
     4.5" and 8" reflector, seeing=excellent), Albert (CA, 8" reflector, 
     x375) and Emanuel (8" reflector) observed star-like flashes in 
     Aristarchus crater. Cameron says this confirmed and that the date 
     in MBMW is 7/3/65 which is local time = 4th UT also but is in error due 
     to misreading of handwriting. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=883 and 
     weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     Censorinus 1984 Jul 05 UT 21:05-21:25 Observed by Cook (24" reflector 
     with line scan photodiode array at Mill Hill observatory, London) "Two 
     line scan photodiode array images were taken which used the motion of 
     the Moon to build up an image. The first image at 21:25UT did not 
     include all of Censorinus, but the part that it did include was not 
     very bright. The 21:25UT image did include all of Censorinus and the 
     crater was bright, including the part that was just visible in the 
     previous image. Possibly the seeing was worse at 21:05? and this could 
     explain the brightness descrepency, but it is worth checking again by 
     taking images at the same illumination conditions" BAA Lunar Section 
     report. At 21:17 M. Cook (Frimley, UK) found Proclus to be brighter 
     than Censorinus (more so than the previous night) and obtained variable

     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.

2018-Aug-19 UT 12:50-12:53 Ill=62% Alphonsus observed by Cook_AC on 1982-7-28 *

     On 1982 Jul 28 at UT20:38-20:48UT A.C. Cook (Frimley, Surrey, UK, 12" 
     reflector, seeing IV-V, some spurious colour prsent) observed that the 
     central peak of Alphonsus was brighter in red light than in blue, so 
     much so that at the start of the session the peak could hardly be seen 
     in blue light. The central peak varied in brightness in red light but 
     not in white light. The central peak of arzachel was brighter than that 
     of Alphonsus in white light but had no colour - Arzachel's central peak 
     did however appear to fade in brightness over time (or was it Alphonsus 
     getting brighter?). Cameron 2006 catalog ID=177 and weight=3. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2018-Aug-19 UT 12:50-15:27 Ill=62% Daniell observed by Madej_P on 1983-6-18 *

     77mm refractor, x83,x166, seeing II-III, transparency fair). 
     Noted on the inside W eall a faint red rose like glow (with a 
     diameter? about it). The red glow varied in brightness with a 
     period of about 2 minutes. It looked somewhat brighter at x166. 
     The glow was still visible when the observation ended at 22:15

     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 
     filter, and was strong in a red filter. Also the crater 
     Trouvelot was not seen at x250 with a x2 Barlow.Wratten 25.

     (England) in the central region. No colour seen elsewhere. At 20:10 
     Foley (Kent, UK, 12" reflector) had seen a small extending of darkening 
     in the south east floor (not present 2 hours before) and a lot of fine 
     detail - though everything was normal again by 22:50UT. At 22:15 Amery

     observed a strong beacon like flash in white light that moved back and 
     forth in the east wall of Plato (very bright) and Mons Pico. tried 
     changing eyepiece and the field of view, but this wasn't the cause of 
     the effect. A check at 11:07UT did not show the effect, but it was back 
     again by 11:18UT being more pronounced at Mons Pico than the east wall 
     of Plato. SSW of Mons Pico was also blinking slightly. At 11:32 the 
     blinking effect was irregular 5-10 sec and this continued until

     Mosely saw a reddush-orange patch and this was confirmed by 
     Moore. NNW of the central peak, Mosely got a blink, but Moore 
     did not because of too much stray light. The colour was like
     Jupiter's red spot, but less pronounced. The Cameron 1978

     A.S.Williams of West Brighton, UK, using a 5.25" Calver, x150 and 
     definition fairly good. Observer noticed that the Mare seemed covered 
     with a close network of innumerable streaks, and spotted with countless 
     numbers of light specks, so that it would hardly be possible to 
     delineate them all in one night. The spots and streaks together must 
     have numbered ~1000. The observer had never seen anything like the 
     number of spots and streaks. Peirce A, was not at all easy to se and 
     neighboring spots almost as bright made it difficult to distinguish 
     which one was Peirce A. ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     On 1976 Apr 10 at 21:15-21:49UT S.Spencer (60mm refractor x60, seeing 
     quite good) noticed a faint red glow at the south west wall of Gassendi 
     covering a span of about 35 deg arc. The observer had some doubts about 
     this because they were using a small telescope, but thought that they 
     ought to report it, just in case. A BAA Lunar Section report. ALPO/BAA

2018-Aug-22 UT 16:05-18:01 Ill=87% Aristarchus observed by Moore_P on 1985-5-30

     On 1985 May 30 at UT 20:10-23:54 P.Moore (Selsey, UK, 15" reflector) 
     and at the same time Doherty (Sussex, UK, 15" reflector) observed a 
     strangely bright and pink/red north rim of Aristarchus crater during 
     UT20:20 and 20:36UT. The effect reduced between ~20:39 and 20:44UT. 
     M.C. Cook (Frimley, UK) found the northern wall to have a red/purple 
     colour but the effect vanished after 50 minutes. Cook also saw a "V"-
     like notch in the NW crater shadow and this appeared to be bigger than 
     normal. G. North (Sussex, UK) saw a tinge of pink colour on the 
     northern rim and a bit later a "ruby red" colour on the north-west wall 
     - again this effect lasted 50 minutes. Moseley verified the colour. 
     Finally M. Hather (Yorkshire, UK) suspected the north wall of 
     Aristarchus to be blue in colour. Cameron suspects that this TLP is not 
     spurious colour because it is in the wrong place. The Cameron 2006

     central peak in Aristarchus on the NW rim of Herodotus at 
     19:10 (still there at 19:15, but the curious thing was that it 
     was not visible earlier at 18:50? Now there is a bright 
     craterlet here, and the observer doubted if what he had seen 
     was unusual - though we have the rise in brightness o20 
     minutes to account for? The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2018-Aug-25 UT 19:34-21:25 Ill=99% 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.

     Plato 1944 Sep 03 UTC 03:40 - A.W. Mount (Fort Worth, TX, USA, 
     Conditions good, seeing 6/10) saw a small white bright point of 
     light appear suddenly close to the W. wall of Plato glowed 
     briefly as by far the most conspicuous object in the lunar field

     On 1980 Sep 24 at UT 21:13-23:50 P.Moore (Selsey, UK) at 22:45 saw loss 
     of detail in the north west wall, especially in red light, but also 
     slightly in blue light too. By 22:48 there was activity on the crater 
     floor i.e. the four bright spots were visible in white light but not in 
     red. In blue the central spot was seen and there were dark radial 
     streaks to the south wall and south east. At 22:50 there was a loss of 
     detail. Other craters were normal. At 23:08 the floor was dark in red, 
     but some details were visible in blue. the effect had finished by 
     23:35. At21:34 J-H Robinson found Plato to be normal and no blinks, 
     though floor clearer in red than in blue, however the floor detail had 
     gone by 21:57. Blair suspected a dusty patch in north of Plato, 
     especially in red light. at 21:57 and it started spreading at 21:13, 
     then east at 21:15 and then north. Though it faded at 21:25 but was

     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

     Moon Blink carried out. In Red 25 Proclus looked nearly the 
     same as in white light. Through the Blue 38a filter, however, only the 
     brilliant lit south east wall was clearly visible. The northeast wall 
     was very dim with this filter. With no filters the NE and SE wall were 
     brilliantly lit, the SE wall was almost as bright as Aristarchus. A 
     thread like strip along the NW wall, possibly the rim of the crater, 
     was also brilliantly illuminated. The interior of the crater was a 
     featureless stygian black with the exception of a brilliant (intensity 
     9) thread of light that ran parallel  to the illuminated east wall. 
     Whether this was an L.T.P. or an optical  effect of atmospheric 
     turbulence is unknown, did not see anything similar elsewhere along the 
     terminator though" ALPO/BAA weight=3.

2018-Aug-30 UT 16:49-17:42 Ill=83% Proclus observed by Louderback_D on 1980-8-30

     On 1980 Aug 30? at UT 08:00? D. Louderback (South bend, WA, USA, 8" 
     refletor x140) found the north wall to be very bright in red light 
     (this is not normal as it is usually bright in blue - according to 
     Cameron). The brightness was 9.7 (red) and 9 (blue no filter)compared 
     to Eimmart's 8.7. Louderback thought that they observed an oranfe-
     yellow tinge. Cameron 2006 catalog ID=108 and weight=3.
