2020-Jul-02 UT 03:25-04:33 Ill=89% Aristarchus observed by Zeller_P on 2013-4-22

     On 2013 Apr 22 UT 01:39-02:37 P. Zeller (Indianapollis, USA, 
     10" f/4 reflector, x200, seeing 6, Transparency 3 - scattered 
     cirrus) observed visually (depicted in sketch) the two closely 
     spaced NW wall dark bands) to have a rusty-red hue. The colour 
     of these bands did not change over the period of the observing 
     session. Images were taken, but resolution and image S/N is 
     not sufficient to resolve separate bands here, or to detect 
     colour. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2020-Jul-02 UT 03:45-05:36 Ill=89% Plato observed by North_G on 1981-8-11

     On 1981 Aug 11 at UT21:05-21:36 G. North (England, seeing=poor) 
     detected, in green light, a darkening on the floor of Plato. This 
     effect was not seen elsewhere. J-H Robinson (Teighmouth, Devon, UK) 
     detected on the SSE rim (inner and beyond) a triangle that appeared 
     hazy in a wide range of filters at 21:05UT. However at 21:36UT it was 
     only hazy in green and blue light. No similar effect was seen 
     elsewhere. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=150 and weight=5. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=3.


2020-Jul-02 UT 04:35-06:29 Ill=89% Gassendi observed by Cook_AC on 1977-10-23

     On 1978 Oct 23 observing period: UT22:00-22:40 A.C. Cook (Frimley, 
     Surrey, UK, 6" reflector, x144, 6mm Ortho eyepiece, seeing IV, red and 
     blue filters used) saw at 22:10 a secctor on thwe western floor to be 
     mainly bright in the red. The surface was bumpy here. The observer at 
     the time commented that this was probably not a TLP, but no precise 
     explanation given. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     moonblink reaction, and crater dull". BAA Lunar Section report. ALP\BAA 
     weight=3.


2020-Jul-02 UT 05:34-07:20 Ill=89% Herodotus observed by Martini_A on 2017-2-8

     On 2017 Feb 08 UT 01:45 A.Martini Jr (10" Schmidt-Cassegrain 
     with ASI 120 MC camera +IR filter, Gain 40, Gamma 36, 
     exposure 0.003 sec) saw on a computer monitor screen a flash 
     to far to the west of Herodotus and Aristarchus at the 
     location 54.53W, 23.5N. It had a duration of 0.5 sec and on a 
     brightness scale of 0 = night side of the Moon to 10 = 
     Aristarchus, ranked 7. Unfortunately they were not recording 
     at the time. As there was no confirmation observation and it 
     could be a cosmic ray air shower detection, the ALPO/BAA 
     weight=1

2020-Jul-03 UT 05:26-06:33 Ill=95% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1982-7-3

     Aristarchus 1982 Jul 03/04 UTC 20:55-01:08 Observed by Foley (Kent, UK, 
     Seeing Antoniadi III) "Brightness variance" - CED 3.6-4.1-4.9. When the 
     crater was dark it had a slate-blue-grey interior. Moore found the

     On 1982 Jul 03/04 at UT 20:45-01:08 J.D. Cook (Frimley, 
     Surrey, UK) found the Mare Frogoris area, north of Plato was 
     pink at 20:45UT. Saxton found flashes in Mare Frigoris and 
     near thye Alps. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=174 and the 
     weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2020-Jul-03 UT 05:31-06:38 Ill=95% Plato observed by Foley_PW on 1982-7-3

     Interior craterlets could not be seen and some of the walls and 
     exterior features were fuzzy. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Jul-03 UT 07:23-07:41 Ill=96% Aristarchus observed by Robinson_JH on 1975-4-23

     On 1975 Apr 23 at UT 20:30 J-H Robinson (Teighmouth, Devon, UK, 260mm 
     reflector, x200). Observer was observing since 20:30UT, at 21:00UT 
     though they noticed red on the outside south wall of Aristarchus, a 
     hazy ill defined area that was larger in a red filter than in blue 
     filter, and outside east wall was bright in red. At 21:08UT the outside 
     west wall of Aristarchus no longer gave a colour blink reaction, and at 
     21:22UT the colour blink on the southern end of the crater ceased, but 
     the image blur remained (in both red and blue filters) despite the rest 
     of the crater being sharp in detail. Observations ceased at UT 21:35 
     because the blurring at the southern end seemed to be normal and this 
     was confirmed when checked with photographic atlases. Other craters 
     such as Proclus, Pickering, Tycho, Gassendi, Copernicus, Alphonsus, 
     Plato, Menelaus, Manilius, Linne and Theophilus, showed no colour blink 
     reactions. However Picard had a red bright blink from 20:30-20:40 and 
     the permanant blink on the N. Floor of Fracastorius was detectable. 
     Also Plato floor shadings were clearer in red than in blue - 
     intermittently. This is a BAA lunar section observation. No estimation 
     of transparency or seeing is given, nor any comment on whether spurious 
     colour was seen in any craters visually. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2020-Jul-05 UT 07:00-08:30 Ill=100% W_Limb observed by Bouron on 1982-1-9

     On 1982 Jan 09 at UT18:46-21:42 Bouron (UK?) observed that the west 
     limb, during a total lunar eclipse, had dark orange on it. Cameron 
     2006 catalog ID=162 and weight=5. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     On 1963 Dec 30 at UT11:00 many observers reported seeing a red glow on 
     the North East (IAU?) limb of the Moon. This was also captured on a 
     photograph. Cameron suggests eclipse geometry as an explanation. Thye 
     Cameron 1978 catalog ID=792 and weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Jul-05 UT 08:30-09:02 Ill=100% Mare_Fecunditatis observed by Emersen_G on 2000-1-21

     On 2000 Jan 21 UT04:40 G. Emersen (Golden, CO, USA, 30cm focal length 
     lens with Wratten 25 ref filter) took 43 CCD images of the eclipse of 
     the Moon and on one of them at 04:40UT (exposure 0.3 sec) a relatively 
     bright spot appeared in the southern part of Mare Fecunditatis. The 
     spot looks sharper than the rest of the Moon and so might be a cosmic 
     ray? CCD images taken from Washington D.C. by A.C. Cook at this time, 
     do not show this spot, however exposures were at intervals of 0.25 sec 
     and so might have missed this spot if it happened during image readout. 
     The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     On 1995 Apr 03 at UT 03:30 Unknown Observer (Transparency good) saw a 
     darkening in the Cobra Head, Schroter's valley area of Aristarchus - 
     the best example that he had ever seen. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=474 
     and the weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=. Reference - BAA Lunar Section 
     circular 1995 Oct, p125 and personal communication from David Darling 
     to the BAA on 6/6/1995. Note it is uncertain whether this refers to the 
     Clementine mission or to somebody who observed during the Clementine 
     mission, or somebody with that surname. Anyway if it is the Clementine 
     mission then the date is wrong - possibly the year should have been 
     1994? The Cameron catalogue does actually mention a TIFF on Clementine 
     mission? The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=474 and the weight=3. I am 
     assuming that the year should be 1994 and not 1995? The ALPO/BAA 
     catalog weight=1 until we can find out what the correct date is?

2020-Jul-13 UT 10:10-12:06 Ill=46% Plato observed by Wilkins_HP on 1944-8-12

     On 1944 Aug 12 at UT 04:00 H.P. Wilkins (Kent, UK, 8.52" 
     reflector) observed that central craterlet in Plato was 
     unusually bright and shows up as a bright white spot on his 
     sketch - though this might have been artistic license in his 
     sketch. His written notes refer to the unusual lack of a rim 
     (especially the northern part) to this craterlet.

2020-Jul-15 UT 10:26-10:29 Ill=27% Moon observed by Darling_D on 1979-9-16

     On 1979 Sep 16 at UT 08:00-09:00 D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 
     12.5" reflector, x62-x97, clear, but Moon at low altitude) detected 
     four new features that he had not seen before in Earthsine in 
     comparison with what he saw on 16 Jul 1979, this time in the southern 
     part of the Moon. pin-point flashes were seen within these bluish 
     areas. Each time a flash occurred the gas clouds brightened (sometimes 
     by 6x) for a few seconds. Cameron thinks that these are related to

2020-Jul-15 UT 10:26-10:47 Ill=27% Briggs_A observed by Butler_FC on 1980-2-11

     Briggs A 1980 Feb 11 UT 06:30-07:00 Observed bt Butler_FC 
     (Brixton, UK, 22cm Newtonian reflector, x64, x104, seeing IV). 
     Found Briggs A to be brownish in colour at x64, however the 
     colour vanished at 06:55 when x104 was used. Switching back to 
     x64 the colour was still there but fainter. The colour fade may 
     have been due to day light glare encroaching? Could not see this 
     effect anywhere else on the Moon but did detect what he regarded 
     as a permanent coloured spot (yellow) between Cruger and 
     Grimaldi. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2020-Jul-17 UT 11:36-12:06 Ill=11% Plato observed by Short_J on 1751-4-22

     James Short, Dr Harris and Mr Stephens saw initially a streak of 
     light on the shadowed floor of Plato. They were not expecting to see
     any light to reach the floor. Shortly afterwards they saw a second
     streak of light parallel to the first and this shortly divided
     into two. Gaps in the mountains were found for both streaks,
     but they were unable to understand why one of the streaks divided
     into two. Cameron's 1978 assigns this TLP an ID of 20 and a weight
     of 5. The ALPO/BAA catalog assigns a weight of 1.

     Aristarchus 1949 May 01 at UT 20:45 H.P. Wilkins (Kent, UK, 3" 
     refractor x100) observed Earthshine was very detailed and 
     Aristarchus was noticeably a bright patch. Upon concentrating on 
     Aristarchus, he observed that it flared up in brightness 
     considerably more still for about 2 sec. During this flare up 
     time, inner terraces and the central peak became visible. 
     Cameron says that this was confirmed by Barcroft a few hours 
     later???? The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=518 and Weight=5. The

2020-Jul-26 UT 03:10-03:18 Ill=34% Daniell observed by Price_M on 1979-12-24

     M. Price of Camberley, UK noticed that an area in relation
     to the central area of the floor could not be resolved. Averted
     vision was used, but this did not help to resolve detail. The crater
     was close to the terminator and was in general sharply in focus
     apart from the suspect area. No spurious colour seen. Sketch
     supplied.P. Foley wonders if the effect was due to the resolution
     limit of Price's scope? Cameron 2006 extension catalog ID=78

     On 1988 Jul 22 at UT 02:15-04:00 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK, 11" 
     reflector) made a sketch of a dark area of the (East) floor of 
     Proclus that revealed a large anomalous dark region - there 
     should be no shade here when the sun is at an altitude of above 
     50 deg!. BAA lunar section archives reveal similar dark shadings 
     - however on this night it was a different shaped dark area. The 
     appearance was confirmed by several observers. Foley reported 
     that the region affected stretched from Proclus to Theophilus. 
     The TLP was seen in the USA too by D, Darling as early as 
     01:31UT and by others on his TLP network - brightness 
     measurements of the "c.p." were 3.5 and the remainder of the 
     floor was 5.5. However the observers did not all agree on the 
     same position for this dark area. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=

     2009 Apr 13 UT 18:55-20:00 J. Adee (UK) and later A. Jarwaski (UK) saw 
     Mons Pico to be incredibly bright. Adee reported naked eye visibility, 
     though this does not show up in later CCD images. Jarwaski saw another 
     nearby Mt very bright as well. This has been assigned an ALPO/BAA 
     weight of 2, though i suspect it is just normal for Pico to get quite 
     bright at sunrise.

     Patches of brightness seen in the area between craters Aratus and Joy.
     Seemed to the observer to be perhaps slightly brighter than one would
     expect - the observer thought that their observation only barely
     constitured a TLP but decided to send the report in anyway. This
     has been assigned an ALPO/BAA weight of 1.

     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

     x150, S=7/10, T=3) observed the following in Proclus: "At 0213 
     the previously observed gray area was 1/3 of July 22 and V 
     shaped and fanned out across the floor. Could see hint of knot 
     seen before. Craters named in 7/23/88 (#319) were all normal 
     this time too". Is it possible that this report refers to the 
     crater "Gray" rather than "Proclus" as the column field suggests 
     in the Cameron catalog? The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=333 and 
     weight=5. The ALPO/BAA catalog weight=2.


2020-Jul-30 UT 03:31-05:24 Ill=78% Plato observed by Madej_P on 1981-9-8

     On 1981 Sep 08 at UT 21:28-21:34 P. Madej (Huddersfield, UK, seeing 
     III-IV and trasnaparency good) observed a light orange transparent 
     cloud extending from the north east inner corner across over the floor 
     of Plato. Camero comments that this report was confirmed by 3 othr 
     observers. The shape of this clud varied. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=
     153 and weight=4. The ALPO/BAA weight=3. 


2020-Jul-30 UT 04:26-05:45 Ill=78% Dawes observed by Porter on 1973-2-12

     Dawes 1973 Feb 12-23 UT 22:30-01:20 Observed by Porter (Narragansett?, 
     RI, USA, 6" reflector x96, S=9, T=0-4, alt=55-75deg?) "Brightening of 
     some of permanent pts. monitored while others stayed steady & normal 
     brightness. (Other nites' obs. suggest that he saw end of dimming event 
     & return to normal). Distinct fluctuations." NASA catalog weight=4 
     (good). NASA catalog ID #1361.


2020-Jul-31 UT 03:28-04:12 Ill=87% Gassendi observed by Cook_AC on 1979-12-29

     Gassendi 1979 Dec 29 UTC 20:09-22:04 - Observer: Cook (Frimley, Surrey, 
     UK) "Colour seen - almost certainly spurious colour and not a TLP".
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Jul-31 UT 03:28-03:56 Ill=87% Bianchini_G observed by Caruso_J on 1987-9-4

     Om 1987 Sep 04 at UT 03:00 J. Caruso (Middletown, CT, USA, 3" 
     refractor, x155, S=6/10 and T=8/10) found that Bianchini G was not 
     visible, however Heraclides E, Helicon G, and indeed many other smaller 
     craters could be seen. There were two small mountains in the general 
     area of Bianchini G. and a mare ridge - all these were clearly seen. 
     Caruso states that Bianchini G should normally be much more clearly 
     seen than the other features mentioned and is the same size as 
     Heraclides E. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=305 and the weight=3. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Jul-31 UT 04:00-05:52 Ill=87% Jansen observed by Lourencon on 1991-5-24

     On 1991 May 24 at UT 20:00? Romualdo Lourencon (Sao Paulo, 
     Brazil, 60mm refractor, seeing=III) detected a circular cloud in 
     Jansen B and H? (Gazateer report says F and K). "The crater of 
     the event 100km diam. compared to Copernicus, dark with crescent 
     obscured region below it. Was S of Jansen. A circular depression 
     there was before LTP in darkness. Wonders if circ. depr. was 
     shadow of cloud? The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=428a and the 
     weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=1. 


2020-Jul-31 UT 04:39-06:09 Ill=87% Proclus observed by Davis_H on 1988-7-25

     On 1988 Jul 25 at UT03:15 H. Davis (Madison, WI, USA) stated that 
     Proclus was normal apart from a "slightly darker area in SW (Ast) SE 
     (IUE) corner." The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=334 and the weight=0. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     Bornhusrt, Cameron, astronet observers (Tucson, AZ, USA - 21" reflector 
     x200) and by Corralitos observatory (Organ Pass, NM, USA, 24" 
     reflector) "W. dark-haloed area varying & the small dark-haloed (40%) 
     area also varying. Seen by others present incl. the author (WBC) who 
     attributes the variations to "seeing". Not confirmed by Corralitos MB."

     Bornhusrt, Cameron, astronet observers (Tucson, AZ, USA - 21" reflector 
     x200) and by Corralitos observatory (Organ Pass, NM, USA, 24" 
     reflector) "Obscuration on E. wall, bright area E. of crater at its 
     brightest. (I (WSC) was present at obs. but did not note anything not 
     attributable to bad seeing, but am not familiar with the area in normal 
     aspect. Others present did not see anything unusual, but Bornhurst & 
     Eastman confirmed). Corralitos Obs. found due to changing light
