2024-Jun-09 UT 17:31-19:00 Ill=11% Aristarchus observed by Horton_R on 1989-4-9 *

     On 1989 Apr 09 at 00:00? R.Horton (N.Scituate, RI, USA, 6" reflector)
     found Aristarchus (and Kepler) to be much less bright than Copernicus. 
     Photographs show this. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=359a and the weight=
     3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2024-Jun-09 UT 17:31-20:02 Ill=11% 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 17:31-19:00 Ill=11% Copernicus observed by Horton_R on 1989-4-9 *

     On 1989 Apr 09 at UT 00:00? R. Horton (N. ScN. Scituate, RI, USA, 6" 
     reflector) took an Earthshine photograph that revealed Copernicus to be 
     brighter than Aristarchus and Kepler. Cameron comments that usually 
     Aristarchus is the brighter and thought it a bit odd because Copernicus 
     should have been less visible, being nearer the terminator3 The Cameron 
     2006 catalog ID=359a and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2024-Jun-09 UT 17:31-19:01 Ill=11% Tycho observed by Darling_D on 1989-4-9 *

     Tycho in Earthshine and that the crater "glowed". However Earthshine 
     was exceptionally bright tonight. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=359b and 
     weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2024-Jun-12 UT 17:32-18:28 Ill=36% Aristarchus observed by McIntosh on 1969-7-20

     On 1969 Jul 20 at UT 0845 McIntosh (Auckland, New Zealand, 14" 
     reflector) saw Aristarchus crater to be brighter in red light. This was 
     during the Apollo 11 watch. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1173 and 
     weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2024-Jun-12 UT 17:32-19:15 Ill=36% Mare_Crisium observed by Kidger_M on 1975-3-18

     On 1975 Mar 18 at UT17:30 M.Kidger (Winterbourne Down, Bristol, UK, 
     60mm refractor, x36, very good conditions with a very sharp image and 
     the sky was almost perfectly clear apart from a very few small clouds). 
     In Mare Crisium it was observed that only a ray of Proclus could be 
     seen to cross the floor - normally there are at least four craters 
     visible inside mare Crisium on good nights and at least one being 
     visible under bad conditions. So despite it being very clear and the 
     image quality being good, the observer found it odd that no craters 
     were visible on the floor of mare Crisium. This is a BAA Lunar Section 
     report. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2024-Jun-12 UT 17:32-17:43 Ill=36% 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
     and weight=2. ALPO/BAA weight=2. 6" reflector x64 and x120.
     Seeing=III-IV and Transparency=good.

     Observations made by Challis of Cambridge, and N. Pogson of Hartwell, 
     both of the UK. Before the occultation, Saturn's rings were 
     distorted. A dark border was seen around the Moon. Just before 
     re-appearance a sea green colour was noticed. Cameron 2006 
     catalog extension  ID=5 and weight=2-5. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2024-Jun-12 UT 19:10-20:07 Ill=36% W_Limb observed by Webb_TW on 1855-6-20

     In 1855 Jun 20 at UT 21:00 T.W. Webb (England) observed a trace of 
     twilight (Cameron says also seen by Gruithuisen, Henry and others at 
     times). Webb gives a low weight to his own observation, saying "for 
     want of better optical means". The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=130 and 
     weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     On 1970 Apr 13 at UT09:00-09:03 Whelan (Walters, New Zealand, using a 
     10" reflector) observed Menelaus to have a deep red cloud that seemed 
     to surge upward from outside the southern edge of the crater wall and 
     disperse around the outside edge, spreading out on reaching Mare 
     Serentiatis. All clear again though by 09:03UT, (Apollo 13 watch).

2024-Jun-14 UT 17:33-18:32 Ill=55% Proclus observed by Foley_PW on 1988-7-22

     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=
     331 and the weight=2. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2024-Jun-14 UT 17:40-19:36 Ill=55% Arzachel observed by Barcroft on 1941-1-6

     On 1941 Jan 06 at UT04:00 Barcroft (Madera, CA, USA, 6" 
     reflector) saw an anomalous shadow in Arzachel crater. Cameron 
     1978 catalog ID=482 and weight=3. ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     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 1, though I suspect it is just normal for Pico to get quite 
     bright at sunrise.


2024-Jun-14 UT 18:25-20:17 Ill=55% Montes_Apenninus observed by Armitage_J on 2008-4-13

     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.


2024-Jun-14 UT 19:09-20:44 Ill=55% 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.

     On 1988 Jul 23 at UT03:07 D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 12" 
     reflector, x150, seeing = 6/10) discovered that the dark area on the 
     floor of Proclus, seen earlier by UK observers was still present, but 
     less so (?) and the shape changed. When viewed through a green filter 
     it was less distinct. "Change with two other filters. Polarizer gave a 
     circular shape with a knot on SE side & W58 in White." The measured 
     brightness of Proclus was 9 on three sides and 8.5 on its west rim. The 
     floor was 5.5, but the dark spot was 4. Alphonsus, Bullialdus,

2024-Jun-16 UT 17:34-19:33 Ill=73% Plato observed by Robinson_JH on 1974-3-3 *

     On 1974 Mar 3 at UT 19:06-20:20 J-H Robinson (Teighmouth, Devon, 
     UK, 10" refractor, x200, seeing=poor) got a Moon Blink reaction 
     on the South east wall of Plato, adjacent to the rim shadow and 
     alerted the BAA TLP network. Ford reported a negtive result at 
     19:35UT, although Robinson was still getting a blink reaction at 
     19:40UT, albeit fainter, red at times. Findlay at 19:43-19:52 
     and 20:00-20:05 saw nothing unusual. Robinson at 19:56UT no 
     longer saw a blink, but it returned at 20:05UT. Light in bothred 
     and blue filters. Not steady, but coming and going and gone at 
     20:09UT. Moore at 19:59-21:00, kennedy at 20:12-20:30, Taylor at 
     20:48-21:03 and Fitton at 20:05UT all got negative results. The 
     latter time coincides with Robinson's second blink reaction.

     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

     Dennis, UK, 20 and 30cm reflectors) noticed a craterlet just 
     to the east of Briggs and an E-W trending lineament or wrinkle 
     ridge that did not show on NASA LAC charts. Further checks did 
     not reveal it on Lunar Orbiter mosaics, but the craterlets 
     (and not the E-W trending ridge) were visible in LROC

     detected "purple"in the vicinity of Aristarchus crater and this was 
     stongest on the north and north west external rims, however there was 
     no "violet glare"from inside the crater. However the region of the 
     central peak was very bright - though he could not detect the central 
     peak. The brightness of the TLP was 4.5 and it should normally be 3 
     (nimbus area). Near the "big plain"it was 7. The chromatic aberation 
     seen on the crater. There was also violet on the northen wall of 
     Herodotus crater and the Cobra Head. Īt appeared dark blue in the blue 
     filter", the surrounds remained gray". Apparently on the 26th the"ring 
     was still dark with faint violet - nearly normal". Cameron comments 
     that the TLP was due to spurious colour. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=

     Proclus 2001 Nov 04 UTC 07:00-07:43 "Robin Gray of Winneucca, Nevada, 
     U.S.A. reported a contrast effect and brightening in the crater 
     Proclus. Using a 15.2 cm refractor he conducted a Moon blink search 
     with Wratten 25a and 38a blue filters. His report goes as follows: 
     Moon Blink carried out. In Red 25 Proclus looked nearly the 
     same as in white light. Through the Blue 38a filter, however, only the 
     brilliant lit south east wall was clearly visible. The northeast wall 
     was very dim with this filter. With no filters the NE and SE wall were 
     brilliantly lit, the SE wall was almost as bright as Aristarchus. A 
     thread like strip along the NW wall, possibly the rim of the crater, 
     was also brilliantly illuminated. The interior of the crater was a 
     featureless stygian black with the exception of a brilliant (intensity 
     9) thread of light that ran parallel  to the illuminated east wall. 
     Whether this was an L.T.P. or an optical  effect of atmospheric 
     turbulence is unknown, did not see anything similar elsewhere along the 
     terminator though" ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     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.
