2024-Jun-07 UT 21:41-22:29 Ill=2% Earthshine: (radio) Daytime Arietids: ZHR=30? (vel=41 km/s)

2024-Jun-08 UT 20:43-22:36 Ill=6% Aristarchus observed by Manske_R on 1988-4-18 *

     On 1988 Apr 18 at UT 19:00 R. Manske (Madison, WI, USA) observed that 
     Aristarchus? was glowing in Earthshine. Weier (Madison, WI, USA) 
     detected it easily in 7x50 binouculars. Spain (Fairfield, KY, USA) 
     though detected no TLP, nor could he see Aristarchus. The Cameron 2006 
     catalog ID=324 and the weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2024-Jun-08 UT 21:42-22:58 Ill=7% Earthshine: (radio) Daytime Zeta Perseids: ZHR=30? (vel=25 km/s)

2024-Jun-09 UT 20:44-21:18 Ill=12% Aristarchus observed by Celis on 1970-5-8

     On 1970 May 08 at UT 23:00-23:30 Celis (Quilpue, Chile, 3" refractor, 
     x60, atmosphere turbulent) observed in the Aristarchus region a clear 
     line(?) and several star-like points. Cameron suspects atmospheric 
     effects due to low altitude and turbulence? The Cameron 1978 catalog 
     ID=1259 and weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2024-Jun-09 UT 20:44-21:08 Ill=12% Aristarchus observed by Darling_D on 1989-4-9 *

     On 1989 Apr 09 at 02:13 was seen to be not very bright in binoculars, 
     despite visibility of Earthshine in general as being exceptional. 
     Darling confirmed this at 02:31UT, though it was quite bright in a 
     17" reflector,but Herodotus could barely be seen. Weier claimed to be 
     able to see Aristarchus with the naked eye. At 02:08 the brightness was 
     found to be 5.0 for several measurments. The observing team ware from 
     the Maddison Asgtronomical Society, WI, USA. The Cameron 2006 catalog 
     ID=359b and he weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2024-Jun-09 UT 20:44-20:49 Ill=12% Gassendi observed by Graham_F on 1990-4-28

     On 1990 Apr 28 at UT 00:00-00:30 F. Graham (Marshall TWP, OH, USA, 6" 
     reflector) during a failed attempt to observe the occultation of X6493 
     that was thwarted by clouds, noticed that Gassendi was "Gass,>>,>Aris 
     or anything else". The crater had a "milky lustre". It is possible that 
     another occultation observing group may have a video of the Earthshine 
     at this time. Darling (Sun prairem WI, USA, 20x50 binoculars) could not 
     see Earthsine, though the sky was bright at the time. The Cameron 2006 
     catalog ID=402 and the weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=1. 


2024-Jun-09 UT 20:44-21:18 Ill=12% Gassendi observed by Graham_F on 1990-4-28

     On 1990 Apr 28 at UT 01:19-01:25 F. Graham (Marshall TWP, OH, USA, 6" 
     reflector) during a failed attempt to observe the occultation of X6493 
     that was thwarted by clouds, noticed that Gassendi was "Gass,>>,>Aris

2024-Jun-09 UT 21:10-21:18 Ill=12% Aristarchus observed by Celis on 1970-7-6

     On 1970 Jul 06 at UT 22:45-23:45 Celis (Paso Hondo, Chile, 3" 
     refractor, x60, x100, x135, seeing=very good) saw Aristarchus as an 
     outstanding bright patch (10 deg bright) electric blue colour, every 10 
     sec groups of 3 or 4 separate sparkles for 10sec then a period of calm 
     for 30sec-1min. At 130x was almost constant form. Sometimes the form 
     would be radial like an open band with extended fingers. This was 
     observed in the dark part of the Moon and Cameron suspects atmopsheric 
     effects. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1264 and weight=2. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2024-Jun-09 UT 21:12-21:18 Ill=12% Plato observed by Robinson_JH on 1980-11-10

     On 1980 Nov 10 UT 17:55-18:15 J-H Robinson (Teighmouth, Devon, UK) 
     observed the floor patches in Plato to be easy in red, but not so well 
     seen in blue. This is a BAA Lunar Section report. ALPO/BAA weight=1.
     Note the month or day must be wrong!


2024-Jun-09 UT 21:43-23:09 Ill=13% Earthshine: (radio) Daytime Zeta Perseids: ZHR=30? (vel=25 km/s)

2024-Jun-10 UT 20:45-21:13 Ill=20% Boussingault observed by Schmidt_J on 1860-4-24

     Boussingalt 1860 Apr 24 UT 20:00? Observed by Schmidt (Athens, Greece, 
     7" refractor) "Noted weak glows on the crater he tho't prob. due to 
     wall reflections on floor" NASA catalog weight=0 (very unlikely to be a 
     TLP). NASA catalog ID #132. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2024-Jun-10 UT 20:45-21:47 Ill=20% Cassini observed by Andrenko on 1937-2-14

     Bright spot (in dark part of Moon - confirmation of Arkhipov?). Cameron 
     1978 catalog weight=5 and Cameron 1978 catalog serial No. 418,


2024-Jun-10 UT 20:46-21:47 Ill=20% Aristarchus observed by Blair_G on 1980-11-11

     On 1980 Nov 11 at UT17:35-18:32 G. Blair (Weir, Scotland, UK) at 
     17:35UT immediately noted that the Earthsine was extremeley bright. All 
     large detail easily seen on unilluminated disk. 17:38UT a definite pale 
     reddish brown tinge enveloped the Aristarchus area. 17:39 seemed to be 
     getting larger and more intense west (IAU) side. Attempted to contact 
     other observers. 17:40UT Aristarchus still had a bright central peak. 
     17:50UT fading a little from the west (IAU). 18:00UT slight revival in 
     brightness. 18:15UT effect still visible when Aristarchus set behind a 
     high western horizon. The two sketches supplied show the illuminated 
     region around the crater with extension to the west (IAU). P. Foley 
     (Kent) found thatAristarchus was bright enough in Earthshine to be seen 
     with the naked eye. Telescope in operation at 18:00UT and the entire 
     Aristarchus region was bathed in violet/rose colour with what appeared 
     to be a strong ray extending to the west (IAU). Detail could be clearly 
     seen inside Aristarchus crater such as the central zone, west and north 
     wall and rim in relief from point southeat to northwest. CED measure 
     0.8 (white), 0.9 (blue), 0.2 (red). No other reading in Earthshine gave 
     a measure in red. Observation ceased by 18:32UT as the Moon was very 
     low. ALPO/BAA weight=3. 


2024-Jun-10 UT 21:27-21:47 Ill=20% Aristarchus observed by Celis on 1970-7-7

     On 1970 Jul 07 at UT 23:00-23:30 Celis (Paso Hondo, Chile, 3" 
     refractor, x60, x100, x135, seeing=good) observed the following in 
     Aristarchus: "Similar conditions as last night (#1264) but diminished 
     in brightness to 40% (to 6deg bright. Real phenom. in the dimming?)". 
     The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1265 and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2024-Jun-10 UT 21:44-21:49 Ill=20% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

2024-Jun-11 UT 21:29-22:07 Ill=28% Aristarchus observed by Celis on 1970-7-8

     On 1970 Jul 08 at UT 23:00-23:30 Celis (Paso Hondo, Chile, 3" 
     refractor, x60, x100, x135, seeing=excellent) observed the following at 
     Aristarchus: "Conditions again similar (to #1264). Brighter tonite(8 
     deg) than last nite. but not as bright as on the 6th. Pin pts. of light 
     very accentuated. The radial open hand extended fingers form not so 
     frequently, perhaps because of the larger crescent illum. now.". 
     The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1266 and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2024-Jun-11 UT 21:50-22:07 Ill=28% Cyrillus_G observed by Paynter_L on 1983-8-13

     Cyrillus G 1983 Aug 13 UT  20:17-20:59 L. Paynter (Radcliffe, 
     UK, 22cm reflector, seeing III or better, transparency good). 
     Cyrillus G was relatively bright and surrounded by a shaded 
     area. On increasing the magnification from x65 to x130 he became 
     aware of a diffused "carise" colouration, in and around the 
     crater. The colouration was similar though to other spurious 
     colour on the Moon, but unlike other areas affected by spurious 
     colour, was more diffuse and spread out and not so concentrated. 
     In view of some uncertainty by the observer, ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2024-Jun-11 UT 21:45-22:09 Ill=29% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

2024-Jun-12 UT 20:46-22:08 Ill=37% Mare_Imbrium observed by Unknown_Italian_Observers on 2012-3-28

     On 2012 Mar 28 at UT 20:45-20:50 Two unknown Italian 
     observers, reported on an on-line formum that they had 
     independently seen a distinct glow with a comma/drop shape. 
     One of them moved the Moon and the glow moved with the Moon. 
     It is uncertain how experienced the observers where. A chart 
     was provided which shows the lcoation of the glow in the 
     western side of Mare Imbrium. It is just possible that this 
     was Aristarchus in Earthshine, though that is very slightly 
     further west and south than the observers reported. ALPO/BAA 
     weight=1.


2024-Jun-12 UT 21:08-22:21 Ill=37% Menelaus observed by Grego_P on 2012-3-28

     On 2012 Mar 28 P. Grego (Cornwall, UK, seeing II, 100mm 
     refractor, x132) observed a patch of light just inside the NW 
     rim of Menelaus on the shadowed wall or floor. Computer 
     visulaiztions of the illumination conditions using a digital 
     elevation model failed to produce this effect. ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2024-Jun-12 UT 21:46-22:23 Ill=38% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

2024-Jun-12 UT 22:32-00:03 Ill=38% Cepheus_A observed by Collins_M on 2000-10-4 *

     Cepheus A 2000 Oct 04 UTC 08:15-08:50 Observer: Maurice Collins 
     (New Zealand, 90cm ETX) - observer noted that crater was 
     extremely bright - wasn't sure if this was normal and at the 
     time rated it as the brightest (contrasty?) crater that he had 
     ever seen on the Moon. Many years later he suspected that he may 
     have mis-identified the crater. This still leaves us with thr 
     problem as to why a crater should be so bright in this region, 
     and if so, which one? ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2024-Jun-13 UT 21:23-22:30 Ill=47% Pitiscus observed by Slayton_G on 1981-9-6

     Pitiscus 1981 Sep 05 UT ??:?? but assumed to be AM? which would make 
     it 00:00-03:00UTC. Observed by Slayton (Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA, 
     8" reflector, ASA 64EK7 f/170, Kodak Kodachrome) photographed a bright 
     glow in the crater that appeared to move. Observer also reported seeing 
     it visually noting that it looked gray with a tinge of red. For further 
     information see p266 of Sky & Telescope (1991, March). Note that 
     Cameron gives the date and UT at 1981 Sep 06 UT 01:00-01:30, or one day 
     later. I will use this date and time from now on. The Cameron 2006 
     catalog ID=152 and weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2024-Jun-13 UT 21:36-22:30 Ill=47% Theophilus observed by Marshall_KP on 1982-9-24

     In 1982 Sep 24 at 22:45-23:40 K. Marshall (Medellin, Columbia) saw in 
     Theophilus an obscuration on the south west wall close to Cyrillus and 
     furthermore it had a red / mauve colouration (seen best in a 12mm Ortho 
     eyepiece). Through a Wratten 15 yellow filter the region was quite 
     bright. At23:40UT the obscuration faded. There was plenty of detail in 
     the region between Theophilus and Cyrils. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=
     184 and the weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=3. 


2024-Jun-13 UT 21:50-22:30 Ill=47% Posidonius observed by Houdard on 1915-4-21

     On 1915 Apr 21 at UT 1800? Houdard (France) noticed a special 
     occurrence south of Posidonius which he took as evidence of water 
     vapor. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=351 and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=2.


2024-Jun-13 UT 21:47-22:32 Ill=47% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

2024-Jun-14 UT 20:48-21:04 Ill=56% Eimmart observed by Louderback_D on 1983-9-15

     On 1983 Sep 15 at UT 05:20-05:24 Louderback (South Bend, WA, USA, 
     8" reflector and 3" refractor, seeing poor) found that the west wall of 
     Eimmart was unusually bright (8.3) and apparently it was almost as 
     bright as the "WEBS(of Aris?) at its brightest". The crater was 
     apparently normal again on Sep 20 and 26. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=
     228 and the weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2024-Jun-14 UT 20:49-22:33 Ill=56% Alphonsus observed by Darling_D on 1990-5-3

     On 1990 May 03 at UT 02:03 D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, seeing 
     steady) observed a point of light inside Alphonsus just to the north 
     of the central peak, along the "center ridge". It was seen again, half 
     way between the central peak and the noth west rim - along the ridge. 
     All other features were normal. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=403 and the 
     weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2024-Jun-14 UT 20:50-22:00 Ill=56% Purbach observed by Osawa on 1970-4-14

     Purbach 1970 Apr 14 UT 12:00-14:00 Observed by Osawa (Awajt-Shima, 
     Japan, 8" reflector, x288) "Photos in blue and orange taken. Ill-
     defined obscur. in blue photo in S. part of crater compared with 
     orange. (neg. is so faint it is doubtful. Apollo 13 watch. Similar to 
     Alter's findings in Alphonsus)." NASA catalog weight=2 (low). NASA 
     catalog ID #1250.


2024-Jun-14 UT 21:00-21:51 Ill=56% Mons_Pico observed by Schmidt_J on 1844-4-25

     SW of Pico 1844 Apr 25 UT 20:00? Observed by Schmidt (Athens, 
     Greece, ? refractor) "A bluish glimmering patch of light not 
     quite within the dark side" NASA catalog weight=4. NASA 
     catalog ID #123. ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2024-Jun-14 UT 21:13-22:33 Ill=56% Moon observed by Mattingly on 1972-4-21

     On 1972 Apr 21 at UT19:01 Mattingly (Apollo 16 commander, in orbit 
     around the Moon, using his naked eyes) saw a bright flash from below 
     his horizon on the lunar farside (approximate longitude=180 deg). he 
     was dark adapted at the time. However no sesimic event was recorded and 
     so Cameron suspects that this was not a meteor impact but a cosmic ray 
     striking his eye. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1331 and weight=3. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2024-Jun-14 UT 21:19-22:33 Ill=56% Alphonsus observed by Horowitz on 1967-8-13

     x200, seeing = excellent and transparency = excellent) observed "A fine 
     deep red line seen at 1st contact with B-ring of Saturn. Nothing 
     unusual at A-ring contact. Persisted during occult. of B-ring. It 
     divided into 2 components & space between B-ring & globe cutting ring 
     into 2 disjointed ends persisted till dark limb passed onto globe of 
     Saturn, then a short red line corresponding exactly to chord of planet 
     disk defined by lunar limb. It increased in length as occult. 
     progressed. It suddenly vanished after 3/4 of globe had been occulted. 
     No afterglow at spot on limb, no irreg. at limb could be seen. Obs. 
     eliminates Saturn, telescope, & atmosp. as possible cause. Suggests 
     refraction from tenuous atm. of destructive interference of reflected 
     light from very small angle at limb, or diffraction of Saturn light

     Dundee, UK, 25cm refractor, Wratten 25 and 44a filters used) A white
     spot was observed on the rim of Bulialdus that was perhaps slightly 
     brighter in red than in white light. The observers however decided that 
     they did not regard this as a TLP. This is a BAA Lunar Section

     He did not regard these as TLP, but permanent blinks. This is a BAA 
     report. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2024-Jun-16 UT 22:10-22:14 Ill=75% Jansen observed by Lourencon on 1991-5-24

     On 1991 May 24 at UT 00:05-00:08 UT 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.

2024-Jun-27 UT 02:44-04:06 Ill=70% Aristarchus observed by Cameron_W on 1982-10-8

     On 1982 Oct 08 at UT 04:15-04:30 W. Cameron (Silverspring, MD, USA, 
     3.5" reflector, x160, Seeing-very good) suspected blue tinge on north 
     west rim and brown/red on south east rim of Aristarchus crater + focus 
     was slightly difficult. No similar colour effect seen on other craters. 
     Cameron 2006 catalog ID=186 and weight=1. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2024-Jun-27 UT 02:44-04:06 Ill=70% Clavius observed by Cameron_W on 1982-10-8

     On 1982 Oct 08 at UT 04:15-04:30 W. Cameron (Silverspring, MD, USA, 
     3.5" reflector, x160) found that Clavius had a "D" shaped crater on its 
     outskirts that made it appear to have a ridge crossing through it. 
     Cameron 2006 catalog ID=186 and weight=1. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2024-Jun-27 UT 02:44-03:41 Ill=70% Plato observed by Darling_D on 1989-4-26

     On 1989 Apr 26 at UT 10:22-10:44 D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 3" 
     refractor, x36-x140) found that the eastern half of Plato crater was 
     dark - and he checked this using several eyepieces. moderate 
     magnification resolved the dark region into bands, but too high a 
     magnification (x140) made the bands dissappear. The Cameron 2006 
     catalog ID=362 and the weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=1. 


2024-Jun-28 UT 02:33-03:26 Ill=59% Tycho observed by Moseley_R on 1983-8-30

     Tycho 1983Aug30 UT 00:15-00:18 R. Moseley (Coventry, UK, 6" 
     f/10 reflector, x60, transparency very good, seeing III, 
     improving with altitude) attention initially caught by the 
     impression of a rosy colouration along the NW crest and outer 
     wall. For perhaps 2-3 min this persisted - before fading 
     entirely. The observer felt that the cause may have been 
     psysiological - or short-lived spurious colour. However 
     interestingly nearby craters did not show the effect. A 
     sketch was made over a longer time span 00:15-00:40UT. 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2024-Jun-28 UT 03:06-04:07 Ill=59% Lexell observed by Unknown_English_Observer on 1919-2-21

     In 1919 Feb 21 at UT 22:00? an unknown English observer observed in 
     Lexell crater an intensely dark line going out from it. The Cameron 
     1978 catalog ID=370 and weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2024-Jun-28 UT 03:34-04:07 Ill=59% Archimedes observed by Darling_D on 1981-9-20

     On 1981 Sep 20 at UT 08:00-09:40 D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 
     12.5" reflector, x342, seeing=excellent) detected the small crater on 
     its western rim But not on the eastern floor. This was odd because both 
     are equal in size, furthermore smaller craters could be seen and the 
     Moon was at a high altitude above the horizon, so seeing not a problem. 
     Cameron 2006 catalog ID=154 and weight=3. ALPO/BAA weight=1. 


2024-Jun-29 UT 02:35-03:11 Ill=48% Linne observed by Markov on 1918-4-4

     "Observed early morning Moon, with 60mm OG x120, from 02-20 to  02-45 
     hrs UT targeting Plato, Aristarchus, and Alphonsus. From 02-20 to 02-30 
     hrs UT. Aristachus showed a faint pink colouration, where the light 
     material contacted the darker Mare surface. This was not seen after 02-
     30 hrs UT." Transparency very good, seeing somewhat unsteady at first, 
     improving later on. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.
