2024-Jun-09 UT 01:39-03:13 Ill=7% Aristarchus observed by Horne_J on 1988-4-19 *

     On 1988 Apr 19 at UT 01:15-04:00 J. Horne (Steadman, NC, USA, 8" 
     reflector, S=4/10) took photographs of the Moon's Earthshine (appeared 
     in the Aug 1988 Sky and telescope magazine). Aristarchus was bright. In 
     addition several members of the Madison Astronomical Society also found 
     the crater to be bright and one of them saw streaks and flashes from 
     the crater.  Manske (8" reflector, x97, + binoculars, S=E) found the 
     crater to be "abnornormally bright" where as other craters in 
     Earthshine were just normal. Fryback's (Madison, WI, USA, 8" reflector, 
     S=VG) photographs confirm that the crater was very bright - the Moon 
     was only 4deg in altitude though. The Camweron 2006 catalog ID=325 and 
     the weight="confirmed". the ALPO/BAA weight=3.

2024-Jun-10 UT 01:11-01:50 Ill=13% Picard observed by Gray_R on 2002-9-10

     Picard 2002 Sep 10 UT 02:30-03:21 Observed by Gray (Winnemucca, NV, 
     USA, 152mm refractor x248,S=2-3, T=5) "observed in White light and 
     through Wratten Red 25  and Blue #38A filters. The crater through the 
     Red 25 filter looked very similar to the view in White light. Using the 
     Blue 38A filter Picard almost dissapeared - it looked like a dim, 
     faintly observable black spot with the sunlit, east facing west crater
     wall barely visible. Observer had not observed Picard very often, so 
     was not too familiar with it but it seemed odd that it almost vanished 
     through the blue filter." ALPO observational report. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=3.


2024-Jun-10 UT 01:41-02:23 Ill=14% Aristarchus observed by Johnson_G on 1992-4-6

     On 1992 Apr 06 at UT00:45-02:03 G. Johnson (Swanton, MD, USA, 3.5" 
     refractor, x36) observed Aristarchus in Earthsine, but at a higher 
     magnification is appeared as a diffuse star. However the crater was not 
     seen later. D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 3" refractor), D. Weier 
     and F. Graham (Pittsburgh, PA, USA, 7" reflector, photographs), 
     observing at 01:24UT could not see the crater. The cameron 2006 catalog

     good and transparency = clear) observed south east of Plato at the foot 
     of Mt Blanc a small bright spot like a magnitude 4 star - slightly out 
     of focus. This bright speck remained unchanged for 30 minutes. The 
     Cameron 1978 catalog ID=137 and the weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2. 


2024-Jun-11 UT 02:25-02:57 Ill=21% Plato observed by Hodgson on 1847-12-11

     On 1847 Dec 11 at 18:00UT Hdgson (Eversley, UK, x80 refractor and 40x 
     reflector) observed in Plato (Though it might have been Cape Agassiz or 
     Teneriffe Mts) a bright spot of about a 1/4 the angular diameter of 
     Saturn that varied intermittently and was at all times visible on the 
     night side of the Moon. The following day he glimpsed the same spot 
     rhough clouds. From his drawing the spot was ~5' below the true N. 
     point & near the following limb (IAU E. limb) Cameron comments that 
     Plato fits the angular distance better than the other two candidates 
     unless there was a large northern libration. The Cameron 1978 catalog 
     ID=125 and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     Pennsylvania, 6" reflector x45 and 8" reflector x200, photos taken) 
     observed the following at Aristarchus: "While obs. Earthshine on moon, 
     saw it glowing -- a bright steady star-like glow, est. at 5-8th mag. 
     First noted at 0057h. Obs. other obj. then came back to it. It was 
     still there -- till moonset (@0500h). Saw it in other telscopes & 
     Lojeck took photos. (photo shows Aris. prominent, but also LaLande, 
     Pytheas & Timocharis. 2 prs. in Aris. but there are other pts on the

2024-Jun-12 UT 01:51-03:25 Ill=30% Aristarchus observed by Brandli on 1969-5-21

     On 1969 May 21 at UT 20:00-21:00 Brandli and Germann (Switzerland, 6" 
     refractor) observed a slow orange-red blinking on the surrounding area 
     of Aristarchus. It was seen less markedly the next night. Wald (Zurich, 
     Switzerland) noted at 20:30UT that the crater was pink (Confirmation 
     says Cameron) - this was during the Apollo 10 watch. The cameron 1978 
     catalog ID=1131-1132 and weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=4.


2024-Jun-12 UT 02:22-03:25 Ill=30% Fracastorius observed by Robinson_JH on 1973-3-9

     Fracastorius 1973 Mar 09 UT ~19:57 Robinson (Devon, UK) saw a 
     Moon Blink (colour) in this crater. This crater is long 
     suspected of giving permanent blinks due to natural colour. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2024-Jun-12 UT 02:36-03:25 Ill=30% Aristarchus observed by Pruss on 1969-7-19

     On 1969 Jul 19 at UT 1845-18:47 Pruss and Witte (Bochum, Germany, 6" 
     refractor x36 and binoculars) saw brightenings in the north west wall 
     of Aristarchus for 3-7 seconds of about 1 magnitude over the 
     background. From orbit at UT 18:46 the Apollo 11 crew Armstrong, 
     Aldrin, and Collins (in orbit around the Moon and using the naked eye) 
     were asked to take a look at Aristarchus after Earth-based reports of 
     TLP activity. Armstrong reported (after the solar corona had set, on 
     the night side) that probably Aristarchus "to be considerably more 
     illuminated than the surrounding area. It just has - seem to have, a 
     slight amount of flourescence to it". Collins reported a moment later: 
     "Looking out on the same area now. Well at least there is one wall of 
     the crater that seems to be more illuminated than the others. I am not 
     sure that I am actually identifying any phosporesecence, but that 
     definitely is lighter than anything else in the neighborhood". Houston 
     then asked if the crew could detect any colour and if the inner wall 
     was the inner or outer part? Aldrim  commnted that it was the inner 
     wall and Collins mentioned thatno colour was incolved. The Cameron 1978 
     catalog ID=1165 and weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2024-Jun-12 UT 03:21-03:25 Ill=30% Aristarchus observed by Gervais on 1969-7-19

     On 1969 Jul 19 at UT 19:30-21:30 Gervais (Lodure, France, 4.5" 
     refractor?) saw the whole region of Aristarchus and its environs 
     as brighter than normal. Two photographs were obtained. The 
     Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1156 and weight=5. At UT 20:30-20:55 
     Oliver (Spain, using a reflector) found the Aristarchus to have 
     brightened by about 1 magnitude. From UT 20:12-20:30 the crater 
     had been normal. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1167 and the 
     weight=2. At UT 21:00-00:35 P. Mourilhe Silva (Rio de Janeiro, 
     Brazil, 19.5" refractor) saw Aristarchus as a very bright 
     elliptical shape which extended to the north like a bridge 
     between two points. Jose M. L. da Silva and Ronaldo Mourao (Rio 
     de Janeiro, Brazil, 13" refractor) saw a brightening on the 
     north west wall from 21:24-23:22UT intermittently but cont'd. 
     Wall was extraordinarilly bright, along NW wall brighter. 
     Moseley (Armagh, Northern Ireland, UK, 10" refractor) detected 
     an unusual bright, along north west wall, brighter than normal 
     in Earthshine and brighter than crater. It was not constant, but 
     pulsated irregularly with frequency of 20 seconds and amplitude 
     0.75-1.0 magnitudes. No colour seen or obscuration though lokked 
     for. Clouds interrupted observations. Vasquez (Valparaiso, 
     Chile, 12" reflector) saw it as a very luminous point of 
     magnitude 1. Wairy Cardoso (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 12" 
     reflector and 18" refractor) noted a bright. 1s??? The Cameron 
     catalog ID=1168 and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=4.


2024-Jun-12 UT 03:21-03:25 Ill=30% Theophilus observed by Fox_WE on 1969-7-19

     Theophilus 1969 Jul 19 UT 19:30-21:30 Observed by Fox (Notts. 
     England, 6.5" reflector) and Ringsdore (England, 15" 
     reflector). Fox saw intermittent glow in Theoph. for > 2h
     (time not given). Ringsdore confirmed. (Apollo 11 watch)" 
     Confirmed by Baum 21:00-21:20UT. NASA catalog weight=5. NASA

2024-Jun-13 UT 01:12-02:26 Ill=39% 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 01:52-03:47 Ill=39% Helicon observed by Novet on 1788-3-13

2024-Jun-13 UT 02:35-03:47 Ill=39% Aristarchus observed by Wald on 1969-5-22

     On 1969 May22 at UT2045-2105 Wald (Zurich, Switzerland) observed the 
     pinkish colour in Aristarchus was less marked tonight. The astronauts 
     were alerted and at 22:12 reported no activity but could see the crater 
     and Earthshine was strong near the terminator. Apollo 10 watch, 
     spacecraft far from the terminator. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1134 
     and the weight=2. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

2024-Jun-13 UT 03:47-00:00 Ill=40% Aristarchus observed by Delaye on 1969-7-20

     On 1969 Jul 20 at UT 19:55-20:10 Delaye, Thinon, Donas, and Jourdran 
     (Marseilles, France, 10" refractor, x60) saw between 19:55-20:04UT 
     Aristarchus to be bright and in it pulsations with 10 sec duration. At 
     20:05UT it's spot brightened, at 20:08:50-20:35:50UT brightening and 
     pulsations of variable duration. At 20:55:50UT just a feeble flash. 
     Cameron comments that this is probably not atmpsheric effects as the 
     period is too long - also it was during the Apollo 11 watch. The 
     Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1175 and th weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

2024-Jun-14 UT 01:13-01:47 Ill=48% 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.


2024-Jun-14 UT 01:13-01:18 Ill=48% Censorinus observed by Cook_AC on 1984-7-5

     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.

2024-Jun-14 UT 02:43-04:05 Ill=49% Mons_Piton observed by Smith_T on 2022-8-4

     Mons Piton 2022 Aug 04 UT 19:41-20:10 T. Smith (Codnor, UK, 
     16inch Newtonian, x247, Seeing IV) mountain was very bright 
     and red around its eastern slopes. An examination of the 
     bright and contrasty Proclus crater revealed that to be 
     relatively colour free compared to Piton. An examination of 
     other features, north and south along the terminator revealed 
     some tinge of coloiur but not as strong as on Mon Piton. Mons 
     Piton examined with a yellow filter at 19:50 and still showed 
     red along the eastern side, other features along the 
     terminator had no colour through the filter. Video images by. 
     A.Cook (Newtown, UK) made earlier at 1929 & 19:40 UT, (in the 
     SWIR (1.5-1.7 microns) did not reveal Mons Pico as especially 
     bright - but resolutioin was poor. A friend of Smith, phoned 
     up the next day to say that they saw a mountain on the limb 
     exhibiting red on the 14th August. Probably the redness was 
     due to atmospheric spectral dispersion as the Moon was low, 
     and it was especially visble on Mons Piton as this is an 
     exceedingly contrasty object on the terminator. ALPO/BAA 
     weight=1.

2024-Jun-14 UT 03:32-04:05 Ill=49% Promontorium_Agassiz observed by Green_J on 1991-5-21

     On 1991 May 21 at UT05:30-06:15 J. Green (Orangevale, CA, USA, 11" 
     reflector) photgrapphed a broad bright band stretching east and north 
     of Cassini crater in 3 exposures taken 10 minutes apart. This 
     photographic sequence shows a gradual widening towards Cassini and by 
     the 3rd exposure the band is touching (and then obscuring) Cassini. A 
     "fan" was visible in the north east and WSW directions, later this was 
     seen as rays and this was even seen in the view finder of the camera. 
     Cameron comments that this might be lens flare but suspects that it 
     would not have been seen in the view finder. The Cameron 2006 catalog 
     ID=427 and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     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 
     saw obsecuring mist or fog in Plato on many occasions. Cameron 1978

     College, Whittier, CA, USA, using a 10" f/8.2 Newtonian 
     reflector, x78 & x208, seeing 5-6, transparency 2-0) observed a 
     ridge obscured SSW of Ross D. No drawing was made, only a 
     written description. "Ridge not visible near crater; possible 
     white patch 1/3 Ross D diameter" The ridge is the wrinkle ridge 
     extending NNE from Ross D, a well established often visible 
     feature. Harris comments that this was not one of the better TLPs 
     seen near Ross D, and there were no independent observers, 
     neverless he was ceratin of this being a TLP, and it was 
     consistant with other activity seen near this crater between 1964

2024-Jun-16 UT 01:30-03:27 Ill=67% Tycho observed by Abel_P on 2009-5-3

     On 2009 May 03/10 UT23:20-00:11 P. Abel (Leicester, UK, 20cm reflector, 
     x312, seeing III-IV) observed that the north east wall was slightly 
     brighter than would have been expected, slightly blurred (not seeing 
     related blurring) and had a strong orange-brown colour. No spurious 
     colour seen elsewhere. A change in eyepieces showed the same effect. No 
     luck in alerting other observers. A drawing was made at 23:20UT and 
     finished at 00:12UT. At 23:12UT part of the inner NW floor had a dull 
     brown colour, whereas before it was grey.By 00:11UT the colour effect 
     was fading and by 00:18 seeing condirions were too bad to continue. M. 
     Cook (Mundesley, UK, 9cm Questar telescope, x80, x130, seeing III, 
     transparency moderate to good) had observed Tycho earlier in the 
     evening at 22:15UT, but had seen no signs of colour. W. Leatherbarrow 
     (Sheffield, UK, 8cm scope, high cloud interuptions and bad seeing) had 
     taken monochrome images at UT 20:07 and 20:10, but these showed nothing 
     unusual, and he checked the crater visually at 00:00-00:30, but 
     detected no colour, although the Moon's low altitude contibuted to poor 
     seeing conditions and some spurious colour was seen. CCD images from M. 
     Collins (Palmerston North, New Zealand) taken at 00:46UT showed 
     nocolour apart from spurious colour on contrasty edges, in no way 
     reflecting what was seen early by P. Abel. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2024-Jun-16 UT 02:08-06:02 Ill=68% Copernicus observed by Burt_G on 2006-6-5 *

     Observer made a drawing over a period of 30 minutes. Upon
     examining drawing, and comparing with photos made under
     similar illumination was struck by the abnormality of a
     a small white blob in the north east corner of the shadowed
     floor. There should be no raised topography between the wall
     and the central peaks that could give rise to this. The making
     of the sketch overlapped with an earlier drawing made by Rony
     de Laet (Belgium) which did not show this blob. Subsequent attempts
     to find sketches/images at very similar illumination angles have
     failed to show the blob in the north east corner of the chadowed

2024-Jun-27 UT 06:56-06:58 Ill=68% Plato observed by Mobberley_M on 1981-10-18

     On 1981 Oct 18 UT 22:14022:16 M.Mobberley (Bury St Edmunds, UK, 
     14" Cassegrain, seeing variable, transparency misty) found that 
     the central craterlet on the floor of Plato was not visible, 
     despite it being visible under similar colongitudes on other 
     nights. Might be due to observing conditions, but observer 
     suspicous. At 02:08 the observer comments that the central 
     craterlet was ellusive, and at 02:42, though it is uncertain 
     whether they regarded it as suspicous still at this stage?
