     On 1967 May 20 at UT 21:05-21:20 Kelsey (Riverside, CA, 8" reflector, 
     x300) using an English Moonblink device found colour on the south west 
     part of the floor. Note that for the times given by Cameron, the Moon 
     was below the horizon from California - so possibly these are local 
     times and these times need to be correctly converted into UT? The

2018-Aug-23 UT 01:08-01:23 Ill=90% Bullialdus observed by Cook_AC on 1980-12-18

     On 1980 Dec 18 at UT20:46-23:58 A.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, 12" reflector, 
     40-250x, S=IV and transparency good) found the north west wall to be 
     brighter in red than in blue light, however the effect faded during 
     21:29-21:41UT and was gone by 22:40UT. There was however spurious 
     colour on the north west wall. M. Cook (Frimley, UK) found the central 
     peak to be both bright and diffuse, and brighter in red than in blue 
     light during 20:52-20:57UT, however at "22:53-23:58 c.p. very bright &

2018-Aug-23 UT 01:08-02:47 Ill=90% Plato observed by Foley_PW on 1983-7-21

     On 1983 Jul 21 at UT 21:02-23:18 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK, 12" reflector, 
     seeing=III) found the region around the cleft on the souther rim to be 
     out of focus - however atmospheric conditions were turbulent until 
     23:18UT. An unsual dark triangular region (long base against rim) was 
     seen to extend from the inner rim at 12 o'clock onto the floor for 13-
     16km. The crater had lots of detail elsewhere. M. Cook (Frimley, UK) 
     found the south east to soth west to be obscured again, but not as 
     badly as she had seen on the 20th July. J. Cook (Frimley, UK) found the 
     dark region had 2 white bands on the side and the south west wall was 
     blurred like it was on the 20th July - this time tough colour was not 
     present. There were also two light patches on the floor. Mosely 
     (Coventry, UK) observed the south wall at x120 and found the wall out 
     of focus at the 11 o'clock location. Through a yellow filter he saw a 
     "white mistiness: on the top of the southern rim and only the south 
     east cleft could be seen (no colour). By 22:40-23:00 the effect had 
     cleared up. No dark triangular patch was seen. When Marshall (Surrey, 
     UK) observed (22:30-03:00) nothing unsual was seen, though a sketch 
     provided shows a light patch on the floor located at 11 o'clock. All 
     observations, made by all observers had some atmospheric turbulence, 
     however trsnparency was good. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=225 and the 
     weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2018-Aug-23 UT 01:08-01:52 Ill=90% Plato observed by North_G on 1992-5-13

     On 1992 May 13 at UT 20:16-21:29 several observers reported a TLP in 
     Plato mostly concerning the visibility of floor craterlets, however 
     observer seeing varied from III-V. North (UK, 18.25" reflector) 
     reported "Colouration and floor craterlets very prominent. Seeing 
     Antoniadi V, Transparancy Poor.". Foley (Kent, UK, 12" reflector 
     seeing=III-IV) found the floor to be bright and in the better moment of 
     seeing detected floor craterlets. The WNW spot was misty some of the 
     time. Moore (Selsey, UK, 15" reflector, seeing V) had very poor seing 
     conditions. J.D. Cook and M.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, 3.6" reflector, 
     seeing II-III) used a CCD camera at 22:11 UT. The Cameron 2006 catalog

2018-Aug-23 UT 03:34-04:30 Ill=90% Gassendi observed by Foley_PW on 1976-11-3

     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 
     report. ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2018-Aug-23 UT 04:12-05:44 Ill=90% Aristarchus observed by Barr on 1963-11-28

     On 1963 Nov 28 at UT 00:30-01:45 Barr, Greenacre, Hall and 
     Dungan (Flagstaff, AZ, USA, 24" refractor, and 69" reflector) 
     observed pink on the outer SW rim and a red spot towards the S of 
     this. A red spot was seen on the eastern side of Vallis Schroteri
     but only by Barr and Dungan. Other features checked for 
     atmospheric spectral dispersion and chromatic aberation - but the 
     colours in Aristarchus were not due to these. Smaller 12" scope 
     checked but no effects seen - presumably due to resolution and 
     image contrast issues? Pink on the SW rim may have been seen in a 
     69" scope by Boyce and Ford. ALPO/BAA weight=4.


2018-Aug-23 UT 04:43-05:56 Ill=90% Aristarchus observed by Robinson_JH on 1980-8-22

     On 1980 Aug 22 at UT20:15-21:29 J-H Robinson () detected violet on the

2018-Aug-23 UT 04:43-05:56 Ill=90% 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.

     telescope, x130, seeing III-IV, Moon 16 deg in altitude) observed a 
     dusky dark gray area just north of Herodotus and just south of the 
     Cobra Head. The interior shadow on the east of Herodotus by comparison 
     wad black and distinct. No change was seen when viewed through a 
     rotated polaroid filter. Apparently D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA) 
     was observing at the same time but had better observing conditions and 
     could see detail in this region, suggesting that it was not a TLP.

     On 1988 Apr 01 atUT01:15-03:20 H.Hill (Lancaster, UK, 10" reflector, 
     x286) observed that east of Lichtenberg were ëxtensive rosy areas" 
     around the northern edge of the lava sheet. Hill believes that it may 
     have been the same effect as seen by Madler (Germany), Barcroft (USA) 
     and Baum's (UK) 1951 observation. The colour was "ünmistakable" and 
     nothing to do with the atmospheric spurious colour. Other features were

     reflector, x200, Wratten 25 and 44A filters, seeing II-III, 
     transparency, good) noticed in Aristarchus, blue to the north west
     (IAU?) internal wall, also blue observed in other small bright objects 
     against dark backgrounds. Lunar rotational axis and optical normal 
     related such that the normal runs NW-SE (IAU?) through these features. 
     Observer deduced that the coliur was obviously spurious and no blink 
     was seen in any feature. The blue disappeared as the lunar altitude 
     increased and no blue seen by 00:00UT. This is a BAA lunar section 
     observation. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     other images showed a more blurred view of this feature. It's 
     possible that this was a seeing ripple effect, or just the 
     natural appearance of shadings on the Moon at this time, however 
     for now this will be given an ALPO/BAA weight of 1.

2018-Aug-27 UT 06:51-08:38 Ill=99% Mare_Tranquillitatis observed by Culver on 1988-4-3

     On 1988 Apr 03 at UT02:25-02:30 Culver (Harker Heights, X, USA, Meade 
     2045 reflector, x40, seeing=turbulent) detected flashes coming from 
     just north of the centre of Mare Tranquilitatis. Some of these flashes 
     were of a duration of seconds whilst others were several minutes. 
     Altogether ~20 flashes were seen, and not in the same place. "5 small 
     star-like points could be located - and there were lots of craterlets". 
     The spots were "lined up E-W at N of 10 deg latitude." Colour was not 
     visible on these nor variations. Apparently the observer had seen this 
     type of TLP before but had not reported them. The Cameron 2006 catalog 
     ID=323 and weight=2. the ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     telescope, x130, seeing=III) managed to see the central craterlet in 
     Plato and an unnamed one north west of Mons Pico. Cameron comments - 
     "were this & No. 429 LTP or just good seeing?)." Note it is possible 
     that she mean LTP 439 in which case it would refer to the previous

2018-Aug-27 UT 09:35-11:01 Ill=99% Taruntius observed by Wildey on 1962-9-15

     In 1962 Sep 16 at UT08:05 Wildey, Pohn (Mt Wilson, CA, USA, 60" 
     reflector) Taruntius faded from Vmag-3.21 to 4.04, a 0.82 difference in 
     magnitude in 2.5 hours - a photometric measurement. The average 
     magnitude for this age is 4.03, so therefore the crater had brightened 
     by two times above normal. The Cameron 1978 catalogID=769 and the 
     weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     On 1992 May 19 at UT 01:00-02:05 P. Moore (Selsey, UK, 15" reflector, 
     x260) saw at 01:25UT an unmistakable red-orange glow on the south and 
     south-east rim with the "Spur". Apparently Chapman (Kent, UK) detected 
     it easily. At 01:33UT the colour was barely visible. No TLP alert was 
     issued because the souther edge of Mons Pico also exhibited a hint of 
     colour, and anyway the seeing conditions were poor. Despite this no 
     other features revealed colour. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=446 and the 
     weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     No other features revealed colour apart from Aristarcus, where a TLP 
     was going on. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=446 and the weight=0. The

2018-Aug-28 UT 11:17-12:01 Ill=96% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1983-10-23

     Aristarchus 1983 Oct 23 UT 19:00-01:30 Observer: Foley (Kent, UK, 
     12" reflector, seeing=II) noiced at 19:00UT an extended bright 
     spot on E wall and extending beyond. This was brighter than other 
     areas of the crater. There was also occasional star-like 
     glistening. Foley comments that the inside of Aristarchus was 
     slightly obscured. The TLP started fading from UT20:30 and 
     finished by 01:30UT. six out of nine independent observers 
     confirmed the effects seen. In total 14 observers observed, 9 
     reported back and 6 found abnormalities in Aristarcus though all 
     encountered variable seeing conditions - some had spurious 
     colour. Cameron comments that this was one of the best 
     recorded/confirmed TLP events. All CED brightness measurements 
     obtained were very high. Moore, Nicolson and Clarke (5" refractor 
     and 15" reflector, 230-350xseeing III) found the crater to be 
     very bright at 19:11UT through a 5" refractor and there was a 
     blob on the east rim (Bartlet's EWBS?) at 19:14UT. Nicolson also 
     saw a very bright star-like area on the eastern wall but this was 
     not defined as it usually is. The crater was also very bright at 
     22:43UT using the 15" reflector available to these observers. At 
     01:07UT they used a Moon blink and discovered that the bright 
     region was bright in blue light and less bright in red - although 
     this was not a detactable blink when switching rapidly between 
     filters. They found that the crater had returned to normal by 
     01:15UT. M.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, seeing III-IV) observed a large 
     diffuse spot on the east of the crater that was brighter in blue 
     than in red light and the CED device gave a high reading. J.D. 
     Cook (Frimley, UK, seeing III-IV) made a skecth that showed the 
     bright spot extended on the east wall - again the CED reading was 
     high and a lot of detail was visible on the floor. A.C. Cook 
     (Frimley, UK, seeing III-IV) also noted remarkable detail and the 
     bright (as confirmed by CED) blob on the eastern rim. G. North 
     (Sussex, UK, seeing III-II) also confirmed the bright blob on the 
     eastern wall. Wooller found the north west wall was a dirty 
     yellow colour - though no colour was seen elsewhere in or outside 
     the crater. Mosely found the crater to be bright and his sketch 
     revealed the extension of the bright blob on the eastern rim and 
     again a great deal of interior detail. Amery (Reading, UK, seeing 
     III) found Aristarchus to be "a brilliant splash against dulled 
     background in violet filter, especially polarizing filter. CED + 
     polarizer readings high, but not as high as previous night". 
     Mobberley (Suffolk, UK, seeing III-IV) remarked that "spurious 
     colour a total mess around Aristarchus & nothing abnormal seen". 
     A photograph was taken at 20:50UT reveals the  bright blob and 
     entire detail. Peters (Kent, UK, seeingIII-II) observed  
     Aristarchus with a UV screen from 20:15-21:23UT and comented that 
     althogh being very bright, there was no variation between white 
     and UV. It was checked with a Moon Blink device and the radial 
     bands were  clearly seen in white light, < in blue. The Cameron 
     2008 catalog ID=233 and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=4.
