2020-Aug-04 UT 23:43-01:30 Ill=98% Hahn observed by Hazel_N on 2012-1-9

     On 2012 Jan 09 UT 21:01-21:08 Hahn crater was imaged by N. Hazel 
     (Beverley, Yorkshire, UK, Nikon D7000 with 70-300 zoom at max, 
     with 2x teleconverter, at f9, 1/320 sec, ISO 400  tripod 
     mounted, mirror up), A series of images were taken. The 21:06 one 
     showed a grey column cutting across the central floor of the 
     crater from the west and then bisecting the eastern rim. All 
     detail inside is completely invisble. Some (but not all) of the 
     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.

     On 1981 Oct 15 at UT06:03-06:51 D. Louderback (South Bend, WA, USA, 3" 
     refractor, seeing=1-2 and transparency=5) observed that the brightenss

     a cross. the 2 points A & D on his sketch (index) were affceted. They 
     were 10 pts dimmer in red than blue. Not due to seeing as they did not

2020-Aug-05 UT 23:45-01:22 Ill=94% Aristarchus observed by Moore_P on 1992-5-19

     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

     Aristarchus 1983 Aug 03 UT 0305-0400 Observed by R,Moseley 
     (Coventry, UK, 6" reflector, seeing II, Transparency very good). 
     At the start of the observation, the NE wall and immediate 
     exterior was the brightest area visible (this is normal) and 
     seemed tinged with a faint blue/violet. At 03:45 the impression 
     of colour was fading in the brightening sky, but by 03:55 the 
     colour was back again with a faint violet/purple surrounding the 
     whole formation from E clockwise to N. The observer found it 
     difficult to decide whether it was really a colour on the Moon, 
     or an optical illusion. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     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
