     On 1966 Sep 20 at UT 03:22 Three Astronet observers (Phoenix, AZ, and 
     Los Angeles, CA, USA) (independently?) reported flashes in Grimaldi 
     crater. One observer was in Phoenix AZ, and another in Losa Angeles, 
     CA, so probably not due to the atmosphere. Cameron comments that the 
     astronaut Schmidt on Apollo 17 saw a flash in it while orbiting the 
     Moon. the Cameron 1978 catalog ID=977 and the weight=5. The ALPO/BAA

2020-Jul-25 UT 14:14-00:00 Ill=28% 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.

     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

2020-Jul-26 UT 14:12-14:21 Ill=39% 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.

     On 1984 Jul 05 at UT 00:00-01:25 Marshall (Medelin, Columbia) found 
     Proclus to be much brighter than Censorinus (which of the two was 
     abnormal is a question) - though he thought that Censorinus looked 
     dull. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=247 and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=1.


2020-Jul-26 UT 14:21-00:00 Ill=39% Langrenus observed by Dollfus_A on 1992-12-30

     On 1992 Dec 30 at UT 17:36 A. Dollfus (Meudon, France, 1m aperture 
     telescope used) detected evidence for a dust cloud using CCD 
     polarimetry. The ALPO/BAA weight=5.


2020-Jul-27 UT 14:11-14:18 Ill=51% Theophilus observed by Fox_WE on 1969-7-21

     Theophilus 1969 Jul 21 UT 19:30-21:45 and 21:00-22:00 Observed by Fox 
     (Newark, England, 6.5" reflector,) and Baum (Chester, England, 4.5" 
     refractor) (S=6, T=4) "At wall, adjacent to Cyrillus was a redish glow,
     then obscur. (Fox). Baum  saw intermittant white-blue shimmering as if 
     glowing thru dust glowing & upsurge in brightness on c.p. Gradually 
     faded to normal at 21:20. 1st time ever seen by him tho. obs. since 
     1947. Image sharp, no haziness. (indep. confirm. of activity, but

2020-Jul-27 UT 14:11-14:18 Ill=51% 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.
