     (even without blocking out the sunlit side of the Moon), being the most 
     easily seen crater on the Moon, and this was despite the sky not yet 
     being dark. The crater had faded by 19:20UT and at 19:47UT Earthshine 
     was no longer visible. CED brightness measurements were made and were 
     less than usual and the inside of the crater may have had a blue/gray

     blood red disk was seen as bright as a 6th magnitude star. The colour 
     did not vary but the brightness changed from 4 to 8 over a 1.5-3min 
     period, on the south west wall. Foley (Kent, UK, 12" reflector)observed 
     Aristarchus at 22:10 and noted that it had the same rose-violet colour 
     as had been seen by him a day earlier. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=220 
     and the weight=0. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

     UK, 5" Coude, Antoniadi II seeing, x150) "Floor blinks indicating 
     colour - used a Moon blink device". 2 areas of the floor were affected, 
     The first one was on the far west of Mare Crisium, next to Proclus 
     crater. The second area was in the NNW, but outside the edge of the

     12.5" Newtonian x342) "I was using a 12.5 f5 Newtonian reflector with a 
     9mm eyepiece and 2x Barlow with no filters. I had been observing other 
     features on the Moon when I had panned to the area where the sunrise 
     was taking place on Mount Piton. The mountain peak looked like a 
     shimmering block of ice with a phosphorescence luminescence cloud 
     around the peak. What was really interesting was the shaft of light 
     streaming across the Lunar Maria that appeared like a cone and it came 
     to a point near Mount Piton. The Mountain had the appearance of mother 
     of pearl and the luster or glow that surround the peak only lasted 
     about 20 minutes." The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=296 and gthe weight=4.

2023-Nov-21 UT 10:12-11:09 Ill=61% Sulpicius_Gallus_M observed by Taccogna_F on 2022-12-31

     Sulpicius Gallus M 2022 Dec 31 UT 17:00-18:00 F Taccogna 
     (UAI - Italy) imaged this area and recorded this crater as 
     extremely and unusually bright (compared to other features).
     A. Amorin (Brazil) observing a few hours later commented that 
     the crater was brighter than it was in the Hatfield Atlas 
     plates. However analysis of past imagery of this area under 
     similar  illumination (albeit with the crater on the edge of 
     the image or at lower resolution) also shows a similar 
     brilliance. One more image confirming this will be enought to 
     remove it from a ALPO/BAA weight of 1.


2023-Nov-22 UT 07:16-08:57 Ill=71% Vitello observed by Unknown_Observer on 1960-8-1

     On 1960 Aug? 01 at UT 22:00? an unknown observer detected that Vitello 
     was illuminated -it should have been in shadow? Cameron says that if 
     several days before sunrise then the date could have been July through 
     to December, with August 1st most likely, and ancilary data is 
     therefore given for this date. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=729 and

2023-Nov-23 UT 07:18-07:28 Ill=81% Plato observed by Moore_P on 1981-6-12

     P. Moore at 21:10 found the southern wall (and ontothe southern floor)
     of the crater to be indistinct. Elsewhere in the crater everything was
     sharp. The effect was still seen at 21:42UT, but less strong. A check
     was made for colour with aq Moonblink device, but none was seen. There
     was still a trace of this effect at 21:44UT, although detail was now
     becoming visible. By 21:48UT vertical streaks were seen crossing
     the floor from the obscuration area and these were more visible in the 
     red filter and not in the blue. Cameron comments that undefined patches
     on the floor of Plato are not normal. By 21:55UT some craterlets on the
     floor started to become visible and the TLP for Moore ended by UT22:23.
     P.Foley was alerted by Moore and saw a "amssive dense obsecuration
     on the south wall, south floor and south outer glacis to the Mare".
     Foley noted that by 21:50UT the effect was fading and finished by 
     22:03UT. Foley reported an orange translucent haze covering half of the 
     floor, but floor craterlets could be seen on and off - however his 
     atmospheric seeing conditions were IV. At 22:00 UT Foley reported the 
     floor close to the north wall to be "milky or misty". No detail was 
     visible at 21:15UT and variability in the floor continued until 
     23:10UT. Hedly-Robinson was aleted at 21:35UT and found no difference 
     between red and blue views of the area, however he did find that the 
     south rim was indistinct although this effect had lessened by 22:00 UT 
     and was normal by 22:17UT. M. Mobberly saw a white spot on the floor at 
     21:20 UT, whereas he normally would have expected to see craterlets. 
     Mobberly was alerted at 21:40 UT and took some colour photos. He also 
     made sketches that showed variability in the floor and dark lines and 
     patches in the north west corner. However the altitude of the Moon was 
     low. Cameron mentions that two of the photos show loss of detail at the 
     south wall and beyond.and also a change in the floor markings.The north 
     wall at 21:50UT was strangely reddish (didn't think this was spurious 
     colour). The rest of the wall was sharp at 22:20UT through a yellow 
     filter. Large bright patch in the centre and rest of the floor was 
     apparently of the same shading as Mare Imbrium. The above notes are 
     based upon the Cameron 2006 catalog extension TLP ID 145 and weight=4.
     ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2023-Nov-23 UT 07:59-09:46 Ill=81% Plato observed by Brook_C on 2006-2-8

     C. Brook of Plymouth UK, using a 4" refractor x216, noticed at UT 20:10
     dark patches coming and going (in terms of visibility) on the floor of 
     Plato. Occasional views of the central cratelet (seen as a white spot) 
     were glimpsed. The dark patches seen lasted about 1-2 seconds before
     fading out during each visibility cycle. Teneriff Mountains were 
     checked but no sign of seeing effects that might explain the dark floor
     patches. By 20:26UT the dark patch effect was fading and by 20:31UT 
     floor detail was visible. Observations ceased at UT 20:34. Seeing 
     conditions were II and the Moon was at a high altitude. Other observers 
     were alerted but came on-line after the effect had finished. ALPO/BAA 
     weight=2.


2023-Nov-23 UT 09:10-10:44 Ill=81% Censorinus observed by North_G on 2007-10-21

     At approximately 18:43UT observer noticed that Censorinus, and 
     its bright apron, appeared particularly brighter than normal. 
     There was some spurious colour present - but just a redness 
     along the southernmost extent of the apron visible; could not
     detect any blue along the northern edge however, he did do not
     suspect the colour to be anomalous. A re-examination at 18:51UT 
     revealed that the crater had faded and was seen to fade visibly 
     in real time to normal levels (over about a minute) by 18:53UT. 
     Other features remained constant and so too did the apparent 
     spurious colour.

     Gassendi 1976 Oct 04 UT 20:55-20:58 Observed by Robinson (Devon, 
     England) - observer noted that the east outside wall was bright in red 
     and normal in blue. Note that the Moon was 30 deg above the horizon at 
     the time of the observation. The crater returned to normal at 20:58. 
     Also seen by Moore (Selsey, UK) and Foley (Kent, UK). At 21:25-21:50 D. 
     Sims (Dawlish, UK, 25cm reflector, x300, seeing IV and some cloud at 
     times) noticed a possible obscuration over the southern part of 
     Gassendi. He had been observing earlier at 18:40-19:30 but had not 
     detected a TLP in Gassendi then. 22:11UT Robinson notices that the spot 
     outside the east wall is again bright in red., though by 22:25 it had 
     faded  and was gone by 22:28UT. The Cameron 1978 catalog further 
     quotes: "Vivid red spots & general red color seen around rim by 2 obs.

2023-Nov-24 UT 07:19-07:23 Ill=89% Aristarchus observed by Armitage_J on 2006-2-9

     Observer noted a bright spot on the interior west wall that seemed
     brighter than what they would have expected. unfortunately the precise
     time of this observation was not recorded so the moon-rise and 
     midnight UT values are used to place a limit on the time of 
     observation. Images by Shaw taken at UT 1754, 18:45 and 23:13
     do not exhibit the effect.

     reflector, x240) observed Promitorium Laplace to have 
     visually a brown colour - though no Moon Blink (red and blue 
     filters) effect was detected. Cameron comments that this is 
     probably a subjective effect - also others have reported 
     something similar at times. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=30

     reflector) took some photos (albeit out of focus) that showed a bright 
     spot on the west rim. Cameron comments that this spot was sharp 
     compared to the rest of the photograph, so was probably a photographic 
     artifact. The effect was not seen in the finder scope. The Cameron 2006

     reflector, x159, S=7/10) observed similar light conditions to 1989 Jul 
     15. At 02:00 he observed pink on the south west wall of Aristarchus 
     crater. At 01:24UT the Aristarchus ray was yellowish, however the 
     entire Moon had a grey-yellow tinge of colour. Chromatic aberation was 
     observed at 01:56UT. By comparison Gassendi was checked and had no 
     colour. At 02:10 the crater wall of Aristarchus was unusual and was 
     quite different in appearance to rims of other craters. The cameron 
     2006 catalog ID=375 and the weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1. 


2023-Nov-24 UT 12:03-13:04 Ill=90% Mersenius_C observed by Ward_G on 2005-11-13

     G. Ward (a lunar observer for 15 years) observed an area just south 
     west of Mersenius C to be blurred and in a greenish cloud. The green 
     colour was more like that of dead grass than one gets from a neon bulb.
     The effect was seen from 04:50-04:57UT, but could have been going on 
     before it was first noted at 04:50-UT. Seeing was 6-7/10 4" Refractor 
     (2 element). refractor had been used hundreds of hours before (over a 
     10 year period) with no similar colour was seen. The observer checked 
     other areas but did not see any similar effects. They also rotated and 
     changed eyepieces, but this made no difference to the TLP. The TLP site 
     seen was picked up on an image taken earlier at 04:47UT by W. Bailley,
     from Sewell, NJ, USA. Unfortunately the area concerned, a mountain on 
     the image, was saturated and so we cannot tell if a colour was present 
     there and the seeing was poor.

     "Extraordinary display of lights. Says not effect of sunlight" 
     However an article by Nigel Logshaw in the Feb 2014 LSC suggests

2023-Nov-25 UT 07:20-07:44 Ill=95% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1984-1-15

     Foley (Kent, UK) saw the west wall dull and stongly coloured. Moore 
     (Sussex, UK) saw the wall as normal. However Cameron points out that 
     Foley (Kent, UK) is a lot more Blue/UV sensitive than Moore. Mosely 
     (Covington, UK) at 22:10 UT noticed a brightening on the East wall and 
     at 01:10-01:25 UT suspected that the interior had a weak yellow-green 
     cast to it. Cook (Frimley, UK) states that orange colour was within the
     interior crater, but green beyond the east rim at the 9 O'Clock and
     the south east corner to floor blue/mauvre beyond the northern rim 
     NW/WSW. Foley sstates that orange and blue/mauvre might be spurious 
     colour, but green one cannot get this way. Cameon suggests chromatic 
     aberatons as a possibility but thinks that the observers concerned were 
     experienced enough to recognize this if it were the cause. Cameron 2006 
     catalog extension ID=239 and weight=0. Moore used a 15?" refletor and 
     Foley used a 12" refletor. Mosely experienced II seeing and good

     seeing III) North East quadrant of Plato the crater was blurred 
     and ill-defined. Also no craterlets visible anywhere on the 
     floor of Plato until the central craterlet was just glimpsed 
     later at 23:00-23:45, though seeing now III-IV (cirrus at times 
     in the sky). At this later time the NE rim was less blurred than 
     before. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     On 2016 Jul 17 UT 03:49 P.Zeller (ALPO, Indianapolis, IN, USA) 
     imaged a pseudo-peak with shadow on the floor of Herodotus, 
     however the image scale and quality of this colour image were 
     not great and the observer suspects that it might be an 
     imaging artefact. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2023-Nov-25 UT 09:14-10:51 Ill=95% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1978-5-19

     P. Foley of Kent, UK, using a 12" reflector, seeing=III-II, noticed
     that initially that the crater was pretty dull and that the floor
     was a slate blue-gray in colour at 22:45UT. A noticeable green spot
     inside the crater on the south east appeared at 22:25UT and vanished
     at 00:50UT. Cameron notes that one doesn't get green with spurious 
     colour. Crater Extinction brightness measurements were made at 22:00 UT
     (reading=2.8) and at 23:45UT (reading=3.7). The crater dropped in 
     brightness from 3.7 to 2.8 at 23:50UT and remained lower until 3.0 at 
     23:50-03:15 UT. A graph was produced and showed Proclus and Censorinus 
     at similar brightnesses, but Aristarchus variable. The Earthshine was

2023-Nov-27 UT 12:17-13:48 Ill=100% Aristarchus observed by Darling_D on 1990-12-2

     F. Graham took some photos of the Cobras Head and found a blue cloud 
     about 50 km in diameter and scattering light - Cameron says that 
     this indicates high density. Darling found the Cobra's Head obscure and 
     variable "clear and bright to diffused". Cameron was alerted observed 
     (02:40UT) variations with periods of approximately 30 seconds, and 
     thought that she could see a red tinge on the east rim of Aristarchus - 
     checks elsewhere found no other colours. Darling found that a blue 
     filter enhanced the effect and a red filter made it disappear. There 
     was a blink at 02:55UT but no blink in the Cobra's Head, which looked 
     fuzzy and lacking in detail. The effect was confirmed by Weier, who 
     also saw two dark spots in the Cobra Head in blue but not in red light. 
     The brightness of the Cobras Head was 6.0, Herodotus floor 5.5, NW wall 
     7.5, South wall, 7.0, Aristarchus south wall 9.0, west wall 9.0, south 
     wall 7.0, East wall 8.0, and the central peak 10.0. Observer details 
     were as follows: Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 12.5" reflector, x159,

2023-Nov-28 UT 13:27-14:05 Ill=98% Torricelli_B observed by Mobberley_M on 1985-12-27

     Mobberley noticed that Torricelli B was bright and had an even brighter 
     spot on the inner north wall. The observation was made from UT19:45-
     21:40 using visual and video techniques. There was also a bright region 
     NNE of Toricelli B, that was noticed. Foley examined the video and 
     found that the crater faded in brightness over time and also the bright 
     area to the NNE was not as bright on video as had been seen visually. 
     Foley speculates that because the CCD camera was sesnitive to the near 
     IR that maybe the spot was blue?. Foley observed from 21:12-21:21UT and 
     also saw the bright spot on the inner north wall - but saw a blue halo 
     around the crater. Response in blue filter, darkening over whole 
     region. Brightness measures with a crater extinction device (CED) 
     indicated that the crater was 80-85% the brightness of Censorinus. 
     There was a bright area NNE of the region. M. Cook observed 22:10-
     22:16UT (15cm reflector and seeing III-IV) and also saw that the crater 
     was very bright indeed with a spot NNE of the region (same position as 
     28/28 1985 observation) - suspected that the crater might have been 
     brighter than Censorinus, but judgement effected by seeing. In a blue 
     filter the crater dulled leaving the bright spot prominent (but only 
     during a good moment of seeing) - therefore had some suspicion of 
     seeing effects. At 01:00-01:04UT M. Cook used a 12" reflector on the 
     area, but the seeing was even worse - but did manage a check of the 
     brightness of Torricelli B to Censorinus and now made it one quarter of 
     that of Censorinus and no sign of the crater dimming in the blue as had 
     been seen earlier in the 6" refletor. A. Cook (Frimley, seeing V) at 
     21:15UT (Dec 27) thought that Torricelli B looked normal and saw no 
     colour. At Dec 28 at UT 00:02-00:25 A. Cook obtained some CCD images 
     through red+IR (Wratten 25) and IR (Wratten 87) but found no colour 
     differences, though there was a very slight hint that a brightness fade 
     may have occurred between those two observing times. Note that this
     report does not have an entry in the Cameron 2006 Extension Catalog.
     The ALPO/BAA weight=4.

     on the south east wall and southern "horn" of the crater. He could not 
     detect colour elsewhere, but felt that the effect might have been 
     spurious colour. With the increasing altitude of the Moon the light 
     effect decreased. Moore detected red the next night as well (May 25th)
