     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

2020-Jul-02 UT 12:11-14:07 Ill=91% 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.

     (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.

     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.

2020-Jul-26 UT 11:29-14:09 Ill=38% 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.


2020-Jul-26 UT 11:29-14:09 Ill=38% Torricelli_B observed by Foley_PW on 1984-7-4 *

     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.

     On 1984 Jul 05 at UT 00:00-01:25 Marshall (Medelin, Columbia, 
     seeing=II) observed that Censorinus was much less bright than Proclus 
     (confirmed by CED readings). Cameron 2006 catalog ID=247 and weight=3.

     On 1984 Jul 05 at UT 00:00-01:25 Marshall (Medelin, Columbia) found 
     Proclus to be much brighter than Censorinus (which of the two was 
     abnormal is a question) - though he thought that Censorinus looked 
     dull. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=247 and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA

2020-Jul-26 UT 12:54-13:14 Ill=39% Theophilus observed by Delaye on 1969-7-20

     Theophilus 1969 Jul 20 UT 18:40 Observed by Delaye, Thinon, Donas, ?
     ourdan (Marseilles, France, 10" refractor x60) "Saw a flash on the c.p.

2020-Jul-27 UT 11:29-11:35 Ill=50% Mare_Crisium observed by Williams_AS on 1882-3-26

     A.S.Williams of West Brighton, UK, using a 2.75" Acromatic refractor 
     (x75, definition good, but it was too windy to use the 5.25") noticed 
     that the mare was a mass of light streaks and spots. This was not 
     considered unusual, but these features were unusually plain, distinct 
     and brught, especially the streaks. The observer could not recall 
     seeing the streaks so bright and clear with this instrument before, and 
     indeed hardly ever with the larger 5.25" telescope. The observer 
     continued to observe Mare Crisium on many nights for several months and 
     comments that such an unusual exhibition was later seen perhaps once 
     every 2-3 lunations. They are uncertain how much this effect depends 
     upon the state of the Earth's atmosphere. This TLP does not make it 
     into the Cameron 1978 catalog and so may not be a TLP - however it has 
     been included, just in case, and to try to understand what was actually 
     seen. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     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 
     readings for Censorinus. Cameron 2006 catalog ID=247 and weight=3.

     On 1987 Jun 04 at UT02:26-03:26 D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, S=G 
     and T=4) observed that Mons Piton was the brightest object on the Moon 
     that he had ever noted before. Variations seen gave the mountain a

     Plato 1882 Mar 27 UTC 20:10-21:00 Observer: A.S. Williams (Brighton, 
     UK, 5.5" saw the shadow filled floor of Plato at Sunrise with a 
     "Glowing and curious milky kind of light". About 1 hour after sunrise 
     at Plato, there was no trace of this effect. The TLP filled the whole 
     floor except at a quarter of the diameter from the east wall which was 
     actually quite black. The observer saw a curious phosphorescent glimmer 
     at sunset (April11th?). Cameron comments that Birt, Nelson and Waugh

     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

     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
