2020-Aug-01 UT 07:43-07:45 Ill=94% Aristarchus observed by Homan_MP on 2014-12-4

     Aristarchus 2014 Dec 04 UT 03:14-03:15 M.P. Homan (Grand Rapids, 
     MI, USA, Nikon P520 x48) 11 digital images taken. These show 
     possible blue colour in the Aristarchus area e.g. on the ray 
     between Herodotus an Aristarchus. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2020-Aug-01 UT 08:24-09:17 Ill=94% Vallis_Schroteri observed by Clementine on 1994-4-23

     On 1994 Apr 23 at UT 03:30 the US Navy Clementine Spacecraft, in orbit 
     around the Moon, obtained images of the Cobra Head region of 
     Aristarchus crater that suggested a ~15x colour ratio increase (0.4 
     microns / 1.0 microns) in comparison with images obtained on 1994 Mar 
     03. This was presented as a poster paper 18.04 at AAS 31st DPS meeting. 
     However it was later suggested that this was due to incorrect 
     radimetric calibration procedures being followed. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=1.

     (Liverpool, UK 22cm Newtonian, x216, seeing II, transparency 
     good). Observer reports a bright spot, as bright as the 
     central peak in Aristarchus on the NW rim of Herodotus at 
     19:10 (still there at 19:15, but the curious thing was that it 
     was not visible earlier at 18:50? Now there is a bright 
     craterlet here, and the observer doubted if what he had seen 
     was unusual - though we have the rise in brightness o20 
     minutes to account for? The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     113km away)- there was no shadow. At UT 20:30 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK, 
     12"reflector, seeing excellent) found no colour, but the brightness was 
     changiong and he confirmed the bright patch on the crater's floor, 
     variable 22:15-22:25UT, "then expanded over rim". The Cameron 2006 
     catalog ID=277 and weight=5. the ALPO/BAA weight=4.

     In 1962 Dec 09 at UT 07:36 Wildey and Pohn (Mt Wilson, CA, USA, 60" 
     reflector) observed that Oceanus Procellarum was 1.13 magnitudes 
     brighter than normal. Observation at sunrise and is abnormal if area 
     measured was mare. If it were an east facing wall it would be normal. 
     The Cameron 1978 catalog weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2020-Aug-01 UT 14:03-15:59 Ill=95% Aristarchus observed by Wildey on 1962-12-9

     In 1962 Dec 09 at UT 07:42 Wildey and Pohn (Mt Wilson, CA, USA, 60" 
     reflector) observed that Aristarchus was 0.80 magnitudes (x2) fainter 
     than average for this age (photometric measurement) Vmag=3.80, average=
     3.0. The Cameron 1978 catalog weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     On 1992 Feb 16 at UT 01:05-01:35 P. Moore (Selsey, UK, 12.5" 
     reflector, seeing=III) found the north rim area to be both very 
     bright and misty - though he did not think it to be a TLP but 
     wanted it to be recorded, just in case. The Cameron 2006 catalog 
     ID=440 and the weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Aug-01 UT 14:17-15:02 Ill=95% Aristarchus observed by Gray_R on 2002-9-19

     On 2002 Sep 19 at UT 06:31-07:22 R. Gray (Winnemucca, NV, USA) found 
     that the bright areas of the crater floor, and the east facing part of 
     the west rim, were brighter noticeably in red (Wratten 25) or white 
     light, than in blue (Wratten 38A). The observer suspects that the 
     apparent TLP was more to do with the relative densities of the filters 
     and the contrast in Aristarchus than a real event. This was partly 
     confirmed after checks on other craters, though it did not work 
     everywhere. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Aug-01 UT 14:21-15:31 Ill=95% Aristarchus observed by Greenacre on 1963-10-30

     Aristarchus 1963 Oct 30 UT 01:50-02:15 Observed by Greenacre and 
     Barr (Flagstaff, AZ, USA, 24" Clark Refractor) observed 2 ruby 
     red spots - one just to the SW of the cobra's Head and the other 
     on a highland area east of Vallis Schroteri. A pink colour 
     formed coverting the SW rim of Aristarchus. Effects present with 
     or without Yellow Wratten 15 filer. Similar effects checked for 
     elsewhere on other craters but not seen. So presumed not to have 
     been due to chromatic aberation or astmospheric dispersion. 
     Effecta not seen in 12" refractor, but this may have been a 
     resolution issue. The NASA catalog ID No. is #778. The NASA 
     catalog weight is 5 (highly reliable). ALPO/BAA weight=4.


2020-Aug-01 UT 14:31-16:06 Ill=95% Herodotus observed by Bartlett on 1950-7-27

     Herodotus 1950 Jul 27 UT 03:56 Observed by Bartlett 
     (Baltimore, MD, USA) described in the NASA catalog as: "Pseudo 
     c.p. in Herod. Drawings. (Similar to NASA catalog event #523)" 
     5" reflector used at x100, NASA catalog weight=4. ALPO/BAA 
     weight=3.


2020-Aug-01 UT 14:37-16:06 Ill=95% Aristarchus observed by MacKenzie on 1970-4-18

     Aristarchus-Herodotus 1970 Apr 18 UT 20:14 Observed by MacKenzie 
     (UK,2.5" refractor x45, seeing Antoniadi I) "Fairly strong blink 
     in a spot 1/2 way between the 2 craters. Drawing (Apollo 13 
     watch). NASA catalog weight=2. NASA catalog ID #1257. ALPO/BAA 
     weight=2.


2020-Aug-01 UT 15:22-16:06 Ill=95% Prinz observed by Gray_R on 2002-9-19

     On 2002 Sep 19 at UT07:36-08:06 R. Gray (Winnemucca, NV, USA) found 
     that Prinz was more difficlut to see through a blue Wratten 38A filter 
     than through a red Wratten 25 filter. However he suspects that it might 
     have something to do with the unequal (to his eyes) transmission 
     density differences between either filter. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Aug-01 UT 15:41-16:06 Ill=95% Torricelli_B observed by North_G on 2002-10-18

     Torricelli B 2002 Oct 18 UTC 20:56-21:59 Observer: G.North (UK, 8" 
     reflector, x134, Seeing Antoniadi IV, Transparency good) - thought that 
     Torricelli B was perhaps a little brighter than expected, especially 
     when compared to Moltke and Censorinus based upon past recollection of 
     relative brightnesses at this colongitude). Slight bluish tint seen as 
     well. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Aug-02 UT 08:15-08:39 Ill=98% Grimaldi observed by Gruithuisen_F on 1839-6-24

     On 1983 Oct 19 at UT 21:09-23:40 G. North (Bexhill on Sea, UK, seeing 
     III) found Aristarchus crater to be slightly blue in colour, and very 
     bright, despite the fact that no colour was seen elsewhere on the Moon. 
     At 22:08UT Foley (Kent, UK, 12"reflector, seeing II) obtained an 
     extremely high CED brightness measurement and also picked up a "blue-
     violet" cast, especially inside the west rim, furthermore he saw noe 
     detail in it. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=230 and the weight=5. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2020-Aug-02 UT 08:15-08:34 Ill=98% Aristarchus observed by Shaw_B on 2015-3-3

     Aristarchus 2015 Mar 03 UT 23:58 Brendan Shaw (UK) saw a flash 
     on the NW rim of Aristarchus on his computer screen - the camera 
     was working in the near IR. Seeing was not very good at the 
     time. Unfortunately this flash occurred in between imaging 
     sessions. No other flashes seen, despite looking. The observer 
     considerd the possibility that it might have been a cosmic ray 
     detection, but cannot say for sure. The ALPO/BAA TLP weight=1.

     In 1959 Nov (Day unknown) at UT 21:15-22:15 Bradford (South Shields, 
     UK, 15" reflector, x480) observed in Plato: "Cocealed by a dusky cloud. 
     Appeared to be stream or smoke. No change in 1h. Following week no 
     trace. (SR Nov 5, SS Nov 18. Says he obs. at time of unmanned landing, 
     but there were none in Nov.) Similar to #722". The Cameron 1978 catalog 
     ID=726 and weight=2. The ALPOS/BAA weight=2.

     refractor) sketched a nebulous spot near to Herodotus crater that at 
     06:49 (when he tried some filters out) was visile through red, blue and 
     yellow filters, though it was slightly fainter through the red filter. 
     The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=366 and the weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

2020-Aug-03 UT 13:15-14:46 Ill=100% Vallis_Schroteri observed by Pickering_WH on 1891-9-17

     On 1891 Sep 17 at UT 18:00? Pickering, based at Arequipa, Peru, and 
     using a 12" reflector, saw in Schroter's Valley and the vicinity 
     "Varitions in vapor column. Crater D covered. (there are rays here -- 
     high sun effect on them?) Drawings. Time estimated from given 
     colongitude)." Cameron 1978 catalog ID=270 and weight=1. ALPO/BAA 
     weight=1.


2020-Aug-03 UT 13:17-17:08 Ill=100% Torricelli_B observed by Foley_PW on 1985-9-28 *

     On 1985 Sep 28 UTC 20:54-23:52 P.W. Foley (Suffolk, UK) found (actually 
     before 20:54 UT) brightness variance in Torricelli B. J.D. Cook 
     (Frimley, UK) observed a brief blue coloured patch somewhere in the 
     Torricelli B region, but could not pin it down precisely. At 22:50UT 
     M.C. Cook (Frimley, UK, 30cm reflector, seeing III - occasionally V, 
     transparency moderate to good) Found the crater to have an elongated 
     appearance (in SSW-NNE direction) in white light, similar to the 
     previous night. A bright elongated spot was seen on the NNE floor, 
     close to where the wall should be. Not able to define the rim. There 
     was a very dark surrounding area to the crater, similar to what it was 
     on the previous night (roughly 1/4 brightness of Censorinus). 23:04UT 
     brighter in yellow, then red, then blue. At 23:10 it was seen that blue 
     filter dulled the crater - this was odd because both Censorinus and 
     Proclus were brighter in blue, which is what he would normally expect. 
     At23:15 UT Censorinus was brighter in blue, then yellow then red 
     filters and some orange spurious colour seen to the south of 
     Censorinus. At 23:23UT no spurious colour seen on Proclus or 
     Censorinus. 23:46UT Torricelli B elongated as before, but a very faint 
     ray might have been seen to the south west of the rim. This report is 
     not in the 2006 Cameron catalog. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.


2020-Aug-03 UT 13:38-14:30 Ill=100% Promontorium_Agarum observed by Louderback_D on 1990-5-9

     On 1990 May 09 at UT08:24-08:28 D. Louderback (South Bend, WA, USA, 3" 
     reflector, x150, Clears sky) noticeed in Promontorium Agarum (Cape 
     Agarum), that at 08:24UT the west point (C) dimmed to a brightness of 
     6.5 before ragaining its normal brightness at 7. Cameron comments that 
     these are wedge measurements equivalent to 0.5 steps in Elger's 
     brightness scale. No other effects noticed elsewhere. The Cameron 2006 
     catalog ID=404 and the weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     On 1977 Jan 04 at 16:25-17:30 Kozyrev (Pulkovo Observatory, Crimea, 
     Ukraine, Soview Union) "Observed unusual processes on moon. Activity in 
     progress at beginning of obs. Still vis. at 1710, gone at 1730h.

     On 1938 Jan 16 at UT 00:00 Barker (Chestnut, England, UK, 12.5" 
     reflector) noticed that Plato crater had a brownish-gold veined 
     surface, colour irregular - laid on a smooth floor. The Cameron 
     1978 catalog ID=430 and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2020-Aug-03 UT 14:34-15:29 Ill=100% Aristarchus observed by LeCroy on 1976-2-14

     On 1976 Feb 14 at UT23:35-0053 LeCroy (Springfield, VA, USA, 4.5" 
     reflector, x75, S=6 and T=4.5). A blue haze was seen on the east side 
     of Aristarchus and red haze on the west side. At 00:00UT details were 
     more clear and at 00:24UT Aristarchus and Herodotus, were seperated. At 
     00:34UT colours were gone. At 00:35UT blue was on Aristarchus and the 
     area was bright, but was black in a red filter. At 00:53UT the features 
     were clear and the colour gone and the brightness had decreased to 9. 
     Cameron comments that the colour was not due to temp. inversion because 
     of being dark in the red filter, implying a medium). The Cameron 1978 
     catalog TLP ID is 1428 and the weight=1. This is an ALPO report. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Aug-03 UT 14:58-15:45 Ill=100% Mons_Pico observed by Moore_P on 1996-12-24

     On 1996 Dec 24/25 at 18:12-00:02UT P. Moore (Selsey, UK, using a 15" 
     reflector x250-360, and seeing III) saw a strong orange colour on the 
     south wall and floor of Aristarchus. He suspected it to be spurious 
     colour but could not detect colours on any other craters. The colour
     remained but at 18:12 UT he suspected a trace on colour on Mons Pico 
     but was not sure. However he reported it to the TLP coordinator of the 
     BAA Lunar Section. The orange in Aristarchus gradually faded and had 
     almost vanished by 00:20UT when seeing was too bad to continue 
     observing. At 02:30UT he was able to re-observe again and there was 
     still a very very slight hint of orange in Aristarchus - but he 
     comments that if he had not been looking for it he might not have 
     noticed. ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     Plato 1966 Aug 01 UT 06:14 Observed by Kelsey (Riverside, CA, 
     USA, 8" reflector x300) The wall from the S to the NNE wouldn't 
     focus well though at least 4 craterlets on the floor were 
     clearly seen (Ricker uncertain if real TLP. Cameron thinks it 
     probably was -- similar to Bartlett's experience on Aris. NASA 
     catalog weight=2. NASA catalog ID #961. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Aug-04 UT 09:53-11:24 Ill=99% Plato observed by Mount_AW on 1944-9-3

     Plato 1944 Sep 03 UTC 03:40 - A.W. Mount (Fort Worth, TX, USA, 
     Conditions good, seeing 6/10) saw a small white bright point of 
     light appear suddenly close to the W. wall of Plato glowed 
     briefly as by far the most conspicuous object in the lunar field 
     of view and vanished quickly after approximately 2 sec. It was 
     star-like in appearance and was stationary on the Moon's surface 
     - about magnitude 6? Angular diameter of the flash was <= 1". 
     Observing conditions good enough to see the central craterlet in 
     Plato. 20cm reflector used. Ref. DJALPO Vol 45, p28 Spring 2003.

2020-Aug-04 UT 12:03-14:00 Ill=99% Plato observed by Moore_P on 1980-9-24

     On 1980 Sep 24 at UT 21:13-23:50 P.Moore (Selsey, UK) at 22:45 saw loss 
     of detail in the north west wall, especially in red light, but also 
     slightly in blue light too. By 22:48 there was activity on the crater 
     floor i.e. the four bright spots were visible in white light but not in 
     red. In blue the central spot was seen and there were dark radial 
     streaks to the south wall and south east. At 22:50 there was a loss of 
     detail. Other craters were normal. At 23:08 the floor was dark in red, 
     but some details were visible in blue. the effect had finished by 
     23:35. At21:34 J-H Robinson found Plato to be normal and no blinks, 
     though floor clearer in red than in blue, however the floor detail had 
     gone by 21:57. Blair suspected a dusty patch in north of Plato, 
     especially in red light. at 21:57 and it started spreading at 21:13, 
     then east at 21:15 and then north. Though it faded at 21:25 but was 
     back again at 21:35, and Moon blink colour filters still gave a 
     reaction at 21:50 - the TLP remained strong until 23:50UT. The Cameron 
     2006 catalog ID=110 and weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=4.

     and noted a slight chestnut brown colouration in the dark area on the 
     crater floor to the north of the central mountain leading to Gassendi 
     A. It lasted for about two minutes during 22-30 hrs UT to about 22-35 
     hrs UT (observer unable be more precise). Used 60mm OG x120. Seeing 
     quite steady trans good. Checked Gassendi again at 23hrs UT to 23-05. 
     No sign of colour. Also area mentioned earlier seemed lighter now. No 
     colour on Aristarchus. Plato floor dark -no sign of craterlets. Seeing 
     good with just slight tremor. Trans good 60mm OG x120 used. The

2020-Aug-06 UT 13:14-16:16 Ill=91% Aristarchus observed by Curtis on 1987-6-14 *

     Aristarchus 1987 June 14 UT 04:43-08:00 Observed by Curtis, Jacobs, and 
     Manske (Yanna Research Station, Carl A. Fosmark Jr. Memorial 
     Observatory, Madison Astronomical Society, WI, USA, 17" f4.5 Dobsonian 
     and the 8" f10 SCT Celestron) "On the night 13/14  June  11:42 P.M. to 
     3:00 A.M. local time or 14 June 04:43 to 8:00 UT. Three people 
     witnessed this event and all three of them observed with three 
     different telescopes to rule out instrumental aberration. These three 
     pople were members of the Madison Astronomical. The three observers 
     involved are Keith Curtis, Tom Jacobs and Robert Manske. Keith Curtis 
     took detailed notes of the event as he observed it. The observations 
     were made at the Yanna Research Station, Carl A. Fosmark Jr.
     Memorial Observatory of the Madison Astronomical Society following the 
     annual picnic. This is MAS dark sky site and is located near Brooklyn, 
     Wisconsin. As they were observing the night sky they saw the Moon 
     rising and noted a strong orange color due to atmospheric effects. 
     Approximately 1/2 hour after the Moon rise they decided to turn one of 
     the telescopes on it. It was at 04:43 UT, it was noted by Keith Curtis 
     that as the Moon rose it began to loose the horizon color effect and 
     return to its normal color, but he found that the red color was not 
     leaving the crater Aristarchus. At first they all thought this was an 
     atmospheric effect but decided it was a real event since they detected  
     a second crater (Euler) showing red color on its rim. Keith Curtis
     said that the red color was very strong on the Western rim of 
     Aristarchus with a strong blue/green or aqua green on the Eastern rim. 
     Keith also reported that the glow opaque enough to prevent viewing of 
     the interior of crater Aristarchus. He said they observed until 3:00 
     A.M. daylight saving time or 8:00 UT. and the red glow was still 
     visible when they ended  their observing session. Robert Manske 
     description of the event was that he saw two craters glowing a strong 
     red and blue giving it a rainbow effect. He said that the red glow was 
     so strong he was unable to see the craters underneath during the entire 
     observing session. Concerning the orientation of the red and blue was 
     on the crater he stated that  he did not remember since he failed to 
     take any notes. Concerning whether there was any difference in 
     appearance when they observed it with the 17" f4.5 Dobsonian and the 
     8" f10 SCT Celestron. He said that he could not detect any difference 
     to the lunar formation or the color on it regardless of which telescope 
     he used. He did mention that as the Moon was rising it had the 
     appearance of one large Maria in the center of the disk. This illusion 
     disappeared as the Moon rose higher into the sky. When talking to Tom 
     Jacobs he said that he remembered that he did not see anything on the 
     Moon until 1/2 hour after Moon rise. He said that he remembered that 
     the entire Aristarchus region had a strong reddish or pinkish color. 
     All three witness all reported variations in the type of color they 
     were seeing. This would indicate that individuals color perception is a 
     major factor during a color event. Keith Curtis saw a very strong 
     coloration around the rim of the craters, where Robert Manske saw the 
     entire region covered by this red and blue coloration and he could not 
     see the interior of the craters underneath. Tom Jacobs reported that 
     the glow covered the entire crater but he could see the crater 
     underneath it. The Moon never achieved a height greater than 21 degrees 
     so it could be that what the observers saw was caused by the Earths 
     atmosphere. Further details can be found on the following web site:

2020-Aug-09 UT 13:11-13:47 Ill=69% Plato observed by Darling_D on 1989-4-26

     On 1989 Apr 26 at UT 10:22-10:44 D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 3" 
     refractor, x36-x140) found that the eastern half of Plato crater was 
     dark - and he checked this using several eyepieces. moderate 
     magnification resolved the dark region into bands, but too high a 
     magnification (x140) made the bands dissappear. The Cameron 2006

     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?

2020-Aug-10 UT 13:51-15:33 Ill=60% Archimedes observed by Darling_D on 1981-9-20

     On 1981 Sep 20 at UT 08:00-09:40 D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 
     12.5" reflector, x342, seeing=excellent) detected the small crater on 
     its western rim But not on the eastern floor. This was odd because both 
     are equal in size, furthermore smaller craters could be seen and the 
     Moon was at a high altitude above the horizon, so seeing not a problem.

2020-Aug-10 UT 14:43-16:09 Ill=60% Aristarchus observed by Sage_VA on 1978-10-23

     Aristarchus 1978 Oct 23 UT 06:30-06:34 V.A. Sage (Bristol, UK, 
     10.25" reflector, x250, Wratten 44a and 25, seeing II) noted 
     that Aristarchus was surrounded by a dark area in the blue 
     filter. They did not regard this as a TLP at the time. However 
     because Aristarchus is surrounded by blue material in real life, 
     this should have been brighter? For this reason, despite the 
     observer regarding this as a negative TLP, an ALPO/BAA weight=1 
     has been applied.

     (Parnaiba, PI, Brazil, 9.5" reflector, x90, seeing=good) 
     observed during a lunar eclipse that the Straight Wall 
     surroundings were darker than an observation from two days 
     earlier. At 07:09UT tonality became clearer. As dawn was in 
     progress and atmospheric turbulence, not sure if it was a TLP?

     Adams D On 2019 Sep 06 UT 21:44-22:20 T. Smith (near Great 
     Yarmouth, UK, 90 mm Maksutov, x80, Seeing IV) saw a very 
     bright spot on the SW. rim of Adams D - at first sight looked 
     perhaps raised above the lunar background, but this was just 
     due to its brightness. It was by far the brightest object on 
     the NW quadrant of the Moon. In terms of brightness it was 
     almost but not quite bright as Proclus, but only half the sie 
     of Proclus. No colour was seen to the spot. The spot was not 
     emitting any false colour, there was no change in appearance,

2020-Aug-26 UT 09:07-10:52 Ill=57% Torricelli_B observed by Gray_R on 2002-10-14

     Torricelli B 2002 Oct 14 UT 02:58-03:43 Observed by Gray (Winnemucca, 
     NV, USA, 152mm refractor x114, x305, seeing Antoniadi III, transparency 
     good) "I was out this morning (2:58-3:43 UT, October 14, 2002) 
     observing Torricelli B. At 3:17 UT the west sunlit wall of the crater 
     brightened from an intensity (Elger Scale) of 5.0 to 9.0. In actual 
     terms it went from slightly less bright than the walls of Picard to as 
     bright as the sunlit west wall of Dionysius. This was observed at 114x 
     in white light, where all three craters were in the field of view 
     simultaneously. This event lasted less than a minute and no comparable
     brightening in Dionysius or Picard was seen. The wall of Torricelli B 
     returned to 5.0 in brightness. I continued to observe Torricelli B in 
     white light until 3:43 UT, but the brightness remained at 5.0. Before 
     the brightening I tried blinking Torricelli with the following 
     combinations of filters: Wratten Red 25 and Blue 38A, Red 25 and Blue 
     80, and Red 25 and Schott BG38 (Blue Green). Nothing showed up more 
     prominently in any combination except the Red 25-Blue 38A combination, 
     where Torricelli B became invisible in the Blue, probably because of 
     the filter density. Both the Blue 80 and Schott BG 38 seemed closer in
     density to the Red 25 than the Blue 38A is. I could not see any details 
     inside Torricelli B during this session, including the bright spot on 
     the NE rim." The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     Edmund Optics filters (rose No. 47 and blue No. 80), 
     transparency poor due to thick haze. seeing was excellent) 
     observed that that the rays that crossed Mare Cisrium from
     Proclus were brighter in red light than in blue. A similar 
     effect was also observed, to a lesser extent south of the
     Mare. Non-mare Crisium rays from Proclus did not have this effect.

     that Earthshine was the brightest that he had ever seen it. At 
     19:03 UT losing the Moon behind a chimney. UT 19:10 brief 
     appearance, bright point still seen at 4th magnitude. 19:27UT 
     the Moon disappears again. 20:15UT reappearance of the Moon and 
     Alphonsus appeared normal. The ALPO/BAA weight=2. This is a BAA 
     Lunar section observation.


2020-Aug-27 UT 08:44-10:41 Ill=68% Alphonsus observed by Knott_J on 1993-3-31

     On 1993 Mar 31 at UT19:35-21:15 J. Knott (England, UK, 8.5" reflector, 
     x180 and x216, seeing=II and Transparency=good) the central peak of 
     Alphonsus appeared to be bright but the observer was not confident 
     enough to initiate a TLP alert. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=458b and 
     weights=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=0.


2020-Aug-27 UT 10:26-11:49 Ill=68% Plato observed by Moore_P on 1952-4-3

     Plato 1952 Apr 03 UT 20:45-21:30 Observed by Wilkins and Moore 
     (Meudon, France, 33" x460) whilst checking up on a 1923 28" 
     refractor sketch by W.H. Stevenson's, thry failed to detect a 
     prominent floor craterlet (featured in the 1923 sketch) just 
     inside the W wall. They suspected an obscuration. 
     Interestingly the whole floor was was reported to be lacking 
     in detail many hours later as observed by Cragg in the USA.

2020-Aug-27 UT 11:22-13:05 Ill=68% Torricelli_B observed by North_G on 1989-6-12

     On 1989 Jun 12 at UT 21:18-22:25 G. North (Herstmonceaux, UK, 
     Coude, seeing=V) noted at 21:18UT that Torricelli B was 
     "barely visible"- possibly this was seeing related. M. Cook 
     (Frimley, UK, 8" reflector, seeing=IV) found Toricelli B to be 
     Űxtremely dull - impossible to judge shadows on floor in 
     contrast to Cens." Holmes (Rockdale, England, UK, 8" 
     reflector, seeing=II-III) at UT21:30 also found Toricelli B 
     difficult to find at magnifications less than 200x. Cameron 
     comments that "Dulling is common on it at high Sun but 
     illumination doesn't seem to be the cause or related". The 
     Cameron 2006 catalog ID=365 and weight=5. 
     The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

2020-Aug-28 UT 07:42-10:37 Ill=77% 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.

2020-Aug-28 UT 08:16-10:13 Ill=77% 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.


2020-Aug-28 UT 08:56-10:50 Ill=77% Eudoxus observed by Unknown_Observer on 1882-2-27

     On 1882 Feb 27 at UT 18:30-19:30 an unknown observer reported an 
     unusual shadow in Eudoxus. Apparently the shadow was seen to be normal 
     on 1882 Feb 25 at UT 20:30-20:45. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=228 and 
     weight=3. Reference: Sirius Vol 15, 167, 1882. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2020-Aug-28 UT 09:14-11:10 Ill=77% Eimmart observed by Pickering_WH on 1913-6-14

     Eimmart 1913 Apr 14 UT 01:00 Observed by Pickering (Mandeville, 
     Jamaica, 6.5" reflector) "By this date crater was clear  & at an albedo 
     ~5?. Drawings compare Jan. 16 & Aug.9, 1913." NASA catalog weight=3 
     (average). NASA catalog ID #344.


2020-Aug-28 UT 09:26-11:23 Ill=77% Plato observed by Cook_MC on 2009-4-4

     On 2009 Apr 04 at UT 21:40 M.C Cook (Mundesley, UK) after receiving a 
     telephone alert call, examined Plato crater. Although she did not 
     report C. Brook's slight mottled pink on the floor of Plato, she did 
     report through that the floor patches looked darker than normal, 
     especially in blue light and in red they were not visible at all. In 
     white light they were darker than normal. A.C. Cook was probably 
     observing at the same time 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.
     Note that this observation was made after C. Brook said that he could
     no longer see his TLP. Therefore this constitutes a different TLP
     as there had been a gap of 1 hour since the last TLP report.


2020-Aug-28 UT 10:25-12:13 Ill=78% Pytheas observed by Robotham on 1982-8-29

     On 1982 Aug 29 at UT 02:13-02:30 Robotham (Springfield, ON, 
     Canada, x97 and x160) found that the west rim of Pytheas crater 
     was very bright, especially at lower magnifications, being one of 
     the brightest spots on the Moon. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=182 
     and weight=3. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Aug-28 UT 11:11-13:07 Ill=78% Agrippa observed by Bartlett on 1966-8-26

2020-Aug-28 UT 12:17-12:42 Ill=78% Agrippa observed by Bartlett on 1962-9-9

     In 1962 Sep 09 at UT 01:42-02:00 Bartlett (Baltimore, MD, USA, 
     5" reflector, x180, S=5-4, T=3) observed in Agrippa the shadow 
     of the central peak to be grayish, not much darker than the 
     floor, estimated at 3deg bright, whereas on 1962 Jul 12, at col 
     28deg, in the 5" telescope the dhadow was anormal black and 
     sharply defined against the floor which was 3 deg bright. The 
     Cameron 1978 catalog ID=768 and the weight=4. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=2.

2020-Aug-28 UT 12:49-14:01 Ill=78% Plato observed by Albert_J on 2009-4-5

     On 2009 Apr 05 at UT 01:03-01:31, 01:44 and 02:30 J. Albert 
     (FL, USA, 11"  reflector, x224 and x311, transparency 4-3 
     and seeing 5-6/10) noted a tiny point on the south east
     rim of Plato, adjacent to the east wall shadow. It was
     first seen at x311 without filters, then in both Wratten
     25 (red) and Wratten 38A (blue) - it was faintest in the
     latter. The spot was probably a high point on the south east
     rim. By 01:28UT the spot was no longer visible in the blue
     filter, but could still be seen well in red and white light.
     No change was seen during rechecks at 01:44 or 02:30. The
     observer considers that this was not a TLP as it was on the
     limits of detectability and anyway observing conditions were
     poor. The ALPO/BAA weight=1. 


2020-Aug-28 UT 14:00-14:01 Ill=79% 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. 
     Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1390 and weight=1. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Aug-29 UT 07:33-08:42 Ill=85% Parry observed by Porter on 1974-4-3

     Parry 1974 April 03 UT 01:10-01:45 Observed by Porter (Narragansett, 
     Rhode Island, USA, 6" reflector, S=F, T=2) "Darkening of floor &

2020-Aug-29 UT 07:33-08:02 Ill=85% 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.


2020-Aug-29 UT 07:33-07:36 Ill=85% 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.

2020-Aug-29 UT 09:10-11:07 Ill=86% Gassendi observed by Darling_D on 1991-4-25

     On 1991 Apr 25 at UT 02:14-02:37 UT D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, 
     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 
     effect was not seen earlier at 01:57UT. The Cameron 2006 catalog

     abnormally high for Alphonsus black spot, but not as pronounced as the 
     other area was high compared with 23 other areas" NASA catalog weight=5 
     (very good). NASA catalog ID #899.


2020-Aug-31 UT 12:29-14:25 Ill=97% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1976-1-14

     Aristarchus 1976 Jan 14 UT 20:00-23:00 Observed by P.W. Foley 
     (Wilmington, Kent, UK) - Deep Violet/Blue spot interior N/WW 
     corner. No colour seen elsewhere. It was only a blue spot on the 
     Jan 13. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Aug-31 UT 13:19-15:14 Ill=97% Plato observed by Robinson_JH on 1976-1-14

     Plato 1976 Jan 14 UT 20:50 Observed by J.H-Robinson (Teignmouth, 
     UK, 26cm Newtonian, Wratten 25 and 44a filters, x200, seeing 
     fair to poor). The Plato floor patches were clearer in red than 
     in blue light. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Aug-31 UT 13:45-16:59 Ill=97% Aristarchus observed by no on 1967-9-17 *

     Aristarchus 1967 Sep 17 UTC 02:05-02:21 Observers: Delano (Fall River, 
     MA, USA) and Corralitos Observatory (Organ Pass, NM, USA). The former 
     used a 12.5" reflector at 400x and the latter a 24" reflector. The NASA 
     catalog states the following: "A rimtop cratelet on SW rim appeared 
     almost as bright as c.p. thru a Wratten 25 filter (red) but no brighter 
     than a lower central wall & rim thru a Wratten 48 (blue) filter. Inner 
     W. slope of craterlet displayed a bright red color which became less & 
     less noticeable until 0212h It was no longer brighter than other parts. 
     At 0217 it flared again brighter red for 1m. (indep. confirm. of 
     Seeliger for activity in Aris. ?) Corralitos MB did not confirm. NASA 
     catalog weight=4. NASA catalog TLP ID No. #1045. 
     ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2020-Aug-31 UT 14:32-16:29 Ill=97% Briggs observed by Grego_P on 2010-4-27

     On 2010 Apr 27 at UT 00:10-00:30 and 01:45-02:00 P. Grego (St 
     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, or on very recent LROC 
     images of the area. Possibly these are very low relief features 
     that show only under very shallow illumination conditions. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=1 until we get confirmation at repeat 
     illumination.


2020-Aug-31 UT 14:41-15:39 Ill=97% Schickard observed by Wilkins_HP on 1944-8-31

     Schickard 1944 Aug 31 UTC 21:00? Observed by Wilkins (Kent, England) 
     described in the NASA catalog as: "Saw a mist in it which was gone next 
     nite. interor was dotted with white spots, contrasting sharply with 
     dark areas. All very clear on Aug 15 at sunset". 8.5" reflector. NASA 
     catalog weight=4 {high). NASA catalog TLP ID No. #492. ALPO/BAA 
     weight=3.


2020-Aug-31 UT 15:37-16:47 Ill=97% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1975-3-25

     On 1975 Mar 25 at UT18:50-20:50 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK) observed 
     blue/grey in Aristarchus. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Aug-31 UT 16:11-16:47 Ill=97% Aristarchus observed by Louderback_D on 1983-9-20

     On 1983 Sep 20 at UT 05:08-06:13 Louderback (South Bend, WA, USA, 
     3" refractor, x150, seeing poor and chromatic aberation on the limb) 
     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. ¤t 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=
     229 and the weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2020-Aug-31 UT 16:46-16:47 Ill=97% Plato observed by Foley_PW on 1975-3-25

     On 1975 Mar 25 at UT19:59-20:02 P.W. Foley (Wilmington, Dartford, Kent, 
     UK, 30cm Newtownian) observed blueness along the inner southern wall of 
     Plato. This is a BAA report. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.
