     Herodotus 2022 Sep 27 UT 23:25-23:50 A. Anunziato (Parna, 
     Argentina - 105mm Meade EX 105, x154) near the shadow of the E 
     wall a slightly bright dot was seen, with a slight shadow. 
     Observer notes that this maybe as a result of observational 
     bias as they were looking for a couple of white dots on the 
     floor following a BAA/ALPO lunar schedule request and also the
     feature seen (if real?) was at the resolution linits of their 
     telescope. They also saw craterlet Herodotus N shining quite 
     brightly on the NW rim, but this is normal.We shall therefore 
     assign an ALPO/BAA weight of 1.

     area on the north west(east?) wall of Eudoxus crater. An 
     English Moon Blink device showed it dark in blue and opaque in 
     red. Reddening remained unchanged while comparing it to 
     adjacent region and Aristotles. Colour index was toward dirty 
     orange. Colour most apparent in the good moments of seeing and 
     disappeared in the poorer moments of seeing, Cameron says that 
     this is opposite to what was expected if the effect was 
     atmospheric in origin and no colour was seen in Aristotles.

2024-May-18 UT 00:04-01:00 Ill=73% Plato observed by Brook_C on 2009-4-4

     On 2009 Apr 04 at UT 20:30-20:45 C. Brook (Plymouth, UK) observed a 
     slight pinkish mottling on the floor of Plato. The effect was no longer 
     visible after 20:45UT. A telephone alert was put out to M. Cook and G. 
     North. The former saw no colour, but this was after the event finished. 
     The latter observer reported cloudy conditions. A.Cook was probably 
     observing at the same time as C. Brook, via a couple of remotely 
     controlled telescopes in Aberystwyth. The results (time lapse imagery 
     through narrow band filters) will be examined at a later date.


2024-May-18 UT 00:21-01:00 Ill=73% Plato observed by Burton_M on 1972-3-24

     Plato 1972 Mar 24/25 UT 20:38-00:00 Observed by M.Burton (UK, 
     13.5" reflector, seeing IV-V, Transparency Fair, x180) UT20:38-
     20:45 floor was darker in a red filter than in a blue. UT20:47-
     20:56 JS Burgess (seeing 2/5, x200, with and without filters) 
     found everything normal (with and without filters). UT20:00-
     20:07 and 21:30-21:35 A.J. Beddoes found everything normal (with 
     and without filters). However at 23:10 L.Fitton suspected that 
     the E (IAU?) floor of Plato had a red-brown cast, but could not 
     be quite sure. UT23:54-00:00 M.Burton, detected the floor was 
     darker in red than in blue light. Burton did not detect any 
     colour without the use of filters on either of the two occasions 
     that he detecetd a blink. In view of the fact that two observers 
     did not detect anything, albeit not concurrently with the TLP 
     reports, this TLP is being given an ALPO/BAA weight of 1.


2024-May-18 UT 20:20-22:05 Ill=80% Plato observed by Foley_PW on 1983-7-20

     On 1983 Jul 20 at UT 18:50-22:40 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK, 12"reflector, 
     seeing II-III) noted that the south wall of Plato at the 11 o'clock 
     position, at the location of a cleft, was fuzzy on either side of the 
     cleft. There was also a deep red colour along the cleft and the outside 
     wall. The colour had gone by 22:40 though. All other parts of the rim 
     of Plato were clear and distinct. M. Cook (Frimley, UK, seeing III) 
     sketched some obscurations at 22:03UT. At 22:08UT the red colour 
     reduced to a red line and vanished by 22:37. The south wall obscuration 
     varied in size and there was a possible obscuration at the 7 o'clock 
     position. J. Cook (Frimley, UK, seeing II-III) confirmed Foley's and 
     M.Cook's observations. Detail inside the crater was sharp, but colour 
     oppoiste to what is usual. Price (Camberley, UK, seeing IV-V) a few km 
     away had atmospheric ripples affecting his observations. At 21:36UT G. 
     North described the south wall as odd in appearance and the terrain 
     south of this was lacking in detail - this was odd because elsewhere 
     Plato was nice and sharp. At 21:45UT though the north section of the 
     crater was a hazy red. The cameron 206 catalog ID=224 and the weight=5. 
     The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2024-May-18 UT 21:35-22:35 Ill=80% Campanus observed by Bush_S on 2014-1-11

     Campanus 2014 Jan 11 UT 22:00-22:30 S.Bush (UK, 6" SCT, x180, 
     seeing average) made a sketch of the Campanus and Mercator 
     craters. He found that the central peak of Campanus difficult 
     to resolve and the floors of both craters were devoid of 
     detail. Mercator was the lighter shade of the two floors. 
     Earlier at 19:47 UT M.Brown (Huntingdon, UK) imaged this 
     region and using Registax resolved details on the floors of 
     both craters, though Mercator clearly was slightly lighter in 
     floor shade and had less detail on its floor than Campanus. 
     The most likely explanation was that it was just seeing 
     effects blocking the visibility of detail - this of course is 
     less of a problem for a Registax usid on the CCD image. 
     However just to be sure this observation is being given an 
     ALPO/BAA TLP weight of 1, to encourage visual observers to 
     attempt this observation under similar illumination and 
     seeing.


2024-May-18 UT 21:45-23:17 Ill=80% Mons_Piton observed by Louderback_D on 1983-8-19

     On 1983 Aug 19 at UT 07:15-07:30 D. Louderback (South Bend, WA, USA, 
     3" refractor, x150) found that the direct sunlit side of Mons Piton 
     mountain (E) was brighter than (his designated) points C and D and this 
     happened at the same time as some "blurring"at 07:15UT. The darker 
     side, between C, A and B were not so dark through a red filter as 
     through a blue filter (this was the opposite of what had been seen 
     before at a high sun angle). Louderback suspects that there had been a 
     colour change since he last observed. He also noted that in red light 
     the whole lunar disk appeared fuzzy and out of focus. Louderback noted 
     a 1 sec brightness on the east slope and the whole mountain sharp in 
     blue light. The Moon's altitude was low though. Brightness measurements 
     were 4 in blue light and >= 4.6 in red light and "so illdefined almost 
     blended into plain". Cameon commnets that a telescope colour/focussing 
     issue may have been at work here! The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=226 and 
     weight=4. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     102mm diameter Vixen refractor 80-160x, sky conditions: clear, no wind) 
     "A blue/violet streak, lasting ~10 minutes was seen on the floor of
     Sinus Iridum between crater Bianchini and Promontorium Heraclides. The 
     suspect TLP mybe an effect of instrumental achromatic aberration, but
     there is the small possibility that the effect was real." A UAI

     USA, 12.5" reflector, x64, S=7/10, T=4) found that after 
     sketching Gassendi, that at 02:14 the central peak was very 
     bright in red light, and barely detectable in blue light. By 
     02:26UT a strong blink was noticed on the NW rim, being very 
     bright in the red filter. Effect still present at 02:32UT. The

2024-May-19 UT 19:41-00:00 Ill=87% Herodotus observed by Fabian on 1989-5-17

     On 1989 May 17 at UT Fabian (Chicago, IL, USA, 4" reflector, x35-x50 
     and 8" reflector) noted a pale blue colouration in the ridges situated 
     west of Aristarchus and north of Herodotus craters, in the vicinity of 
     the terminator (and on the night side). Aristarchus itself did not have 
     any colour. t was only area with such color though there were numerous 
     others of similar elevation and relation to term. The colour was seen 
     in a 4" Cassegrain telescope, but when an 8" reflector was used at 
     02:30UT, even with the same eyepieces. Cameron comments that maybe the 
     larger telescope spread the colour out? The sketch that Fabian 
     suplied, suggested to Cameron that the TLP was located at Herodotus, 
     and the ridge was part of Schroter's valley - Cobra Head. The Cameron 
     2006 catalog ID=364 and the weight=2. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     On 1975 Feb 22 at 19:00-22:50 Fitton (Lancashire, UK, 8" reflector, 
     seeing=II-III-I) saw Aristarchus (at 19:00UT) blue, with no obscuration 
     visible in white, red or blue filters. This was not a telescopic 
     effect. "Obs. 4.5h. Says it & next 5 nites obs. were due to high

     wall of Aristarchus at 0.682 and 0.397, but it may have been due 
     to poor seeing. No events seen at Kepler (Apollo 10 watch). The

2024-May-19 UT 21:36-23:33 Ill=87% Bullialdus observed by Cook_AC on 1980-12-18

     On 1980 Dec 18 at UT20:46-23:58 A.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, 12" reflector, 
     40-250x, S=IV and transparency good) found the north west wall to be 
     brighter in red than in blue light, however the effect faded during 
     21:29-21:41UT and was gone by 22:40UT. There was however spurious 
     colour on the north west wall. M. Cook (Frimley, UK) found the central 
     peak to be both bright and diffuse, and brighter in red than in blue 
     light during 20:52-20:57UT, however at "22:53-23:58 c.p. very bright & 
     previous area decreased in size. No detail in white or red, just 
     visible in blue. Sketch (J. Cook) Orange out on NW rim & on NW side of 
     c.p. Similar effects seen on  other craters. (madej) c.p. & W. rim wall 
     very sharp. c.p. disappears in yellow but still seen in purple. 
     (pedler) c.p. > red than blue but no obstruction. W wall interior 
     dusky, darker in blue." A.C. Cook's photo depicts the central peak as 
     very bright. Cameron 2006 catalog TLP ID=120 and weight=5. ALPO/BAA

2024-May-19 UT 21:42-23:36 Ill=87% Plato observed by North_G on 1992-5-13

     On 1992 May 13 at UT 20:16-21:29 several observers reported a TLP in 
     Plato mostly concerning the visibility of floor craterlets, however 
     observer seeing varied from III-V. North (UK, 18.25" reflector) 
     reported "Colouration and floor craterlets very prominent. Seeing 
     Antoniadi V, Transparancy Poor.". Foley (Kent, UK, 12" reflector 
     seeing=III-IV) found the floor to be bright and in the better moment of 
     seeing detected floor craterlets. The WNW spot was misty some of the 
     time. Moore (Selsey, UK, 15" reflector, seeing V) had very poor seing 
     conditions. J.D. Cook and M.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, 3.6" reflector, 
     seeing II-III) used a CCD camera at 22:11 UT. The Cameron 2006 catalog 
     ID=445 and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

2024-May-19 UT 22:33-00:18 Ill=88% Plato observed by Foley_PW on 1983-7-21

     On 1983 Jul 21 at UT 21:02-23:18 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK, 12" reflector, 
     seeing=III) found the region around the cleft on the souther rim to be 
     out of focus - however atmospheric conditions were turbulent until 
     23:18UT. An unsual dark triangular region (long base against rim) was 
     seen to extend from the inner rim at 12 o'clock onto the floor for 13-
     16km. The crater had lots of detail elsewhere. M. Cook (Frimley, UK) 
     found the south east to soth west to be obscured again, but not as 
     badly as she had seen on the 20th July. J. Cook (Frimley, UK) found the 
     dark region had 2 white bands on the side and the south west wall was 
     blurred like it was on the 20th July - this time tough colour was not 
     present. There were also two light patches on the floor. Mosely 
     (Coventry, UK) observed the south wall at x120 and found the wall out 
     of focus at the 11 o'clock location. Through a yellow filter he saw a 
     "white mistiness: on the top of the southern rim and only the south 
     east cleft could be seen (no colour). By 22:40-23:00 the effect had 
     cleared up. No dark triangular patch was seen. When Marshall (Surrey, 
     UK) observed (22:30-03:00) nothing unsual was seen, though a sketch 
     provided shows a light patch on the floor located at 11 o'clock. All 
     observations, made by all observers had some atmospheric turbulence, 
     however trsnparency was good. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=225 and the 
     weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     On 1963 Nov 28 at UT 00:30-01:45 Barr, Greenacre, Hall and 
     Dungan (Flagstaff, AZ, USA, 24" refractor, and 69" reflector) 
     observed pink on the outer SW rim and a red spot towards the S of 
     this. A red spot was seen on the eastern side of Vallis Schroteri
     but only by Barr and Dungan. Other features checked for 
     atmospheric spectral dispersion and chromatic aberation - but the 
     colours in Aristarchus were not due to these. Smaller 12" scope 
     checked but no effects seen - presumably due to resolution and 
     image contrast issues? Pink on the SW rim may have been seen in a 
     69" scope by Boyce and Ford. ALPO/BAA weight=4.

2024-May-20 UT 20:12-21:14 Ill=93% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1975-2-23

     On 1975 Feb 23 at UT 18:00-00:24 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK, 12 inch 
     reflector, seeing Good), noticed that Aristarchus was a slate-grey 
     tinged with blue, and abnormally bright, fading at UT 18:47, and 
     decreased activity at UT20:45 after a cloudy period. Blue was seen on 
     the northern wall at UT19:00, but at 19:10 no colour, but instead an 
     obscuration. All normal from UT 21:04-21:46 according to Foley. At 
     UT19:00 G. Amery (Reading, UK, 10 inch reflector) noted shadowy grey 
     near the shadow under the south wall, indistinct small area, no colour. 
     At UT 20:00 activity increased. Colour negative fr. 150-300x till 21:10 
     (Hunt, Cambridge, UK, 2.5" refractor, seeing Poor-Very good). Negative 
     fr. 20:20-21:00 in bad seeing, and very good seeing at 200x all 
     negative (colour blink filters). From 23:45-00:20UT (Fitton, 
     Lancashire, UK, 8" reflector). Turner of Sussex, UK with an 8"

2024-May-20 UT 20:44-21:54 Ill=93% Plato observed by Hobdell on 1981-10-11

     On 1981 Oct 11 at UT 00:05-02:00 B.Hobdell (St Petersberg, FL, USA, 4" 
     refractor, S=3 and T=5) observed a brightening on the floor of Plato. 4 
     bright spots appeared and vanished and there was a fith one in the 
     centre that was very bright at times. At UT 00:14 the central spot 
     became bright then was "followed by a haze permeating entire floor, 
     heaviest in the northern quadrant. Came from 2 S peaks or white spots, 
     shaped like a boomerang extending to presumed c.p. (c.c ?). White 
     flashed at 0052 from it cloud changed shape - spread N. At 0136 
     brightening from c.c. area 0419 dissipated. All white spots seen at 
     0200. Its outer flanks seen clearly the whole time". The above is 
     quoted from the Cameron 2006 catalog ID=155 and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=3. 


2024-May-20 UT 20:55-22:17 Ill=93% 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.

     On 1983 Aug 22 at UT 05:44-06:33 D. Louderback (South Bend, WA, USA, 
     3"refractor, x150) found the brightness of Aristarchus (diffuse white 
     patch) to be 7 to 7.5 but apparently it is normally 8-8.5, so fainter 
     than normal. Another brightness reading found "brightening then nearly 
     extinction at S. wall similar to changes seen on Eimmart before. 
     Watched fluctuation compared to Cobra Head, they were similar but more 
     pronounced at Aristarchus" especially in blue light compared to red 
     (although there was a little brightness in red). Timings of these 
     fluctuations were 7sec, 7sec, 9-10sec and 9-10sec. The latter two might 
     have been seeing related as the crater enlarged up at these times. The 
     observer felt that the Cobra Head appeared fainter than the previous 
     year and had faded during the second set of brightness measurements.

     against dark backgrounds. Lunar rotational axis and optical normal 
     related such that the normal runs NW-SE (IAU?) through these features. 
     Observer deduced that the coliur was obviously spurious and no blink 
     was seen in any feature. The blue disappeared as the lunar altitude

     Galvani B: On 2019 Sep 13 UT 23:26 K. Kilburn (Manchester, UK, 
     BAA - ED80 refractor, x2 Barlow, Canon 550 DSLR) took a 
     sequence of images from 23:25-23:27 UT. On one of the images, 
     taken at 23:26UT there is a blue/green spot on Galvani B. 
     There is a hint of a possible fade of the spot in the other 
     images but this is not conclussive. Te spot might just be a 
     cosmic ray event or a bright part of the crater rim coming 
     into view under brief exceptional seeing for one frame only. 
     We need simlar illumination, and if possible topocentric 
     libtation images, under different atmospheric conditions to 
     confirm this. It would be great if the images were in colour 
     too. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.
