     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

     (Port Tobacoo, MD, USA) described in the NASA catalog as: "Color patch 
     detected by Trident; MB device. Color was pink. Astronauts on Gemini 5

2020-Aug-13 UT 01:49-02:04 Ill=37% Aristarchus observed by Moseley_R on 1983-8-3

     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.

     On 1940 Dec 25 at UT 10:00? Haas (New Mexico, USA, 12" reflector?) 
     observed the southern horn to be elongated by about 10'. The Cameron

     In 1950 Aug 25 at UT 10:55 T.Saheki (Osaka, Japan) observed a 
     stationary yellow-white flash on the Moon of duration 0.2 sec 
     and mag 6.5. Cameron suggests that this was a meteor. The 
     Cameron 1978 catalog ID=536 and weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     On 1980 Jan 01 at UT 00:10-00:21 A.C.Cook (Frimley, UK, 12" reflector, 
     Wratten 29 and 44A filters, Seeing II-III and transparency poor-
     moderate) suspected that the floor was slightly brighter in blue light 
     than in red. No such effect was seen earlier at 23:54-23:57. Cameron 
     2006 catalog ID=81 and weight=3. ALPO/BAA weight=1.
