2020-Jul-01 UT 02:01-02:39 Ill=80% Sinus_Iridum observed by Manske_R on 1987-10-3

     On 1987 Oct 03 at UT 01:0?0-02:00 R. Manske (Brooklyn, WI, USA, 8" 
     reflector, x226) observed sunlight glinting of the walls in spectacular 
     display of colours. White (even gold) was seen at the centre, and blue 
     on the top most part of the rim. The white (or gold) band was thin in 
     comparison to other bands. The observer suspects that this effect was 
     terrestrial atmosphere related. Cameron 2006 catalog ID=307 and weight=
     0. ALPO/BAA weight=1. 


2020-Jul-01 UT 02:43-03:11 Ill=80% Plato observed by Beaumont_S on 1998-3-8

     Plato 1998 Mar 08 UT 19:30-20:10 S. Beaumont (Windermere, UK, 
     30cm reflector, Meade 23A and 38A filters, seeing III, 
     transparency fairly good, some haze) observed a whitish misty 
     effect seen bordering the shadows of the SE rim. It appeared 
     intermittently and was not seen in the violet or red filters. 
     Observers wonders if it could have been an effect associated 
     with the Earth's atmosphere, which was unsteady with some haze. 
     However, other craters appeared normal. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Jul-02 UT 01:48-02:03 Ill=88% Gassendi observed by Madej_P on 1985-5-30

     On 1985 May 30 P.Madej (Huddersfield, UK, 77mm refractor, x111 
     and x250, seeing II-III, transparency good) whole spectrum of 
     colours seen on the central peak area, visible in both 
     eyepieces, and was more prominent at the higher magnification. 
     Not aware if the observer checked for this effects on other 
     terminator peaks? xALPO/BAA weight =1.


2020-Jul-02 UT 01:48-02:30 Ill=88% Aristarchus observed by Darling_D on 1991-1-26

     On 1991 Jan 26 at UT 23:38-23:50 D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, 
     USA, 12.5" reflector, x159 and 3" refractor x90, seeing 5/10, 
     transparency 3/6) found that Aristarchus was brighter through 
     a red filter than through a blue filter on its western wall. 
     He checked Aristarchus in two telecopes and obtained the same 
     result. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=419 and the weight=4. The 
     ALPO/BAA weight=3. 


2020-Jul-02 UT 02:39-04:33 Ill=89% Aristarchus observed by Zeller_P on 2013-4-22

     On 2013 Apr 22 UT 01:39-02:37 P. Zeller (Indianapollis, USA, 
     10" f/4 reflector, x200, seeing 6, Transparency 3 - scattered 
     cirrus) observed visually (depicted in sketch) the two closely 
     spaced NW wall dark bands) to have a rusty-red hue. The colour 
     of these bands did not change over the period of the observing 
     session. Images were taken, but resolution and image S/N is 
     not sufficient to resolve separate bands here, or to detect 
     colour. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.


2020-Jul-02 UT 02:57-03:17 Ill=89% Aristarchus observed by Foley_PW on 1975-12-14

     Aristarchus 1975 Dec 14/15 UT 17:05-00:30 Observed by Foley 
     (Dartford, England, 12" reflector, S=II) and Moore (Sussex, 
     UK, 15" reflector x250 S=IV) and Argent and Brumder (Sussex, 
     UK). In early sunrise conditions, W. wall was less brilliant 
     than usual -- matched only by Sharp, Bianchini, & Marian. 
     Extraordinary detail could be seen on this wall. Also noted 
     intense & distinctly blue color entire length of W. wall. 3 
     others corroborated detail, but not color. Moore found things 
     normal & saw Aris. brightest at 2030-2125h tho Argent & 
     Brumder made it < Proclus" NASA catalog weight=4. NASA catlog 
     ID #1422. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Jul-02 UT 03:45-05:36 Ill=89% Plato observed by North_G on 1981-8-11

     On 1981 Aug 11 at UT21:05-21:36 G. North (England, seeing=poor) 
     detected, in green light, a darkening on the floor of Plato. This 
     effect was not seen elsewhere. J-H Robinson (Teighmouth, Devon, UK) 
     detected on the SSE rim (inner and beyond) a triangle that appeared 
     hazy in a wide range of filters at 21:05UT. However at 21:36UT it was 
     only hazy in green and blue light. No similar effect was seen 
     elsewhere. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=150 and weight=5. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=3.


2020-Jul-02 UT 04:35-06:29 Ill=89% Gassendi observed by Cook_AC on 1977-10-23

     Surrey, UK, 6" reflector, x144, 6mm Ortho eyepiece, seeing IV, red and 
     blue filters used) saw at 22:10 a secctor on thwe western floor to be 
     mainly bright in the red. The surface was bumpy here. The observer at 
     the time commented that this was probably not a TLP, but no precise 
     explanation given. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2020-Jul-02 UT 05:34-06:29 Ill=89% Herodotus observed by Martini_A on 2017-2-8

     On 2017 Feb 08 UT 01:45 A.Martini Jr (10" Schmidt-Cassegrain 
     with ASI 120 MC camera +IR filter, Gain 40, Gamma 36, 
     exposure 0.003 sec) saw on a computer monitor screen a flash 
     to far to the west of Herodotus and Aristarchus at the 
     location 54.53W, 23.5N. It had a duration of 0.5 sec and on a 
     brightness scale of 0 = night side of the Moon to 10 = 
     Aristarchus, ranked 7. Unfortunately they were not recording 
     at the time. As there was no confirmation observation and it 
     could be a cosmic ray air shower detection, the ALPO/BAA 
     weight=1


2020-Jul-03 UT 01:48-04:21 Ill=95% Philolaus observed by Baum_R on 1948-5-20 *

     NE of Philolaus 1948 May 20 UT 22:00-22:15 Observed by Baum

     catalog ID=48 and the weight=4. The ALPO/BAA weight=2. 


2020-Jul-03 UT 02:06-02:45 Ill=95% Piazzi_Smyth observed by Price_M on 1982-12-27

     On 1982 Dec 27 at UT 23:00 M. Price (Camberley, Surrey, UK, Seeing=III 
     and transparency=good) observed that Piazzi-Smyth was brighter than Mon 
     Piton at 23:00. Photographic atlas was checked to verify that this was 
     abnormal. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=193 and weight=4. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=2.


2020-Jul-03 UT 02:20-03:47 Ill=95% Mare_Serenitatis observed by van_Son_M on 2004-5-2

     On 2004 May 02 at UT03:24 M. and L. van Son (Bremerton, WA, May 1st 
     7:24PM PST) saw a naked eye flash on the Moon. The observers were 
     glancing up at the Moon in daylight when they saw a bright white flash 
     (observer and his wife together) in the upper/mid Mare Serenitatis 
     region, west of the crater Posidonius. "Larger than how Venus appears".
     "It was a quick flash  like white, intense lightning. I'm not sure how 
     to report degrees of arc but if the face we see is 900, and we start 
     from the east then the flash occurred about 225 arc seconds to the 
     west. This was observed by the naked eye, with clear skies between us 
     and the moon." The observers checked for signs of aircraft vapour 
     trails but could not see any. There is a possibility that it could have 
     been sun glint from an Iridium satellite, but this needs to be checked 
     out and usually these last longer than the observed effect. It would be 
     useful to obtain whole Moon images under the same illunination and 
     libration so that we can judge this observation properly. The ALPO/BAA 
     weight=4. 


2020-Jul-03 UT 03:18-05:09 Ill=95% Herodotus observed by Porta on 1965-6-11

2020-Jul-05 UT 04:27-04:30 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-Jul-05 UT 07:39-08:37 Ill=100% NE_Limb observed by Unknown_Observer on 1963-12-30

     On 1963 Dec 30 at UT11:00 many observers reported seeing a red glow on 
     the North East (IAU?) limb of the Moon. This was also captured on a 
     photograph. Cameron suggests eclipse geometry as an explanation. Thye

2020-Jul-05 UT 08:30-08:37 Ill=100% Mare_Fecunditatis observed by Emersen_G on 2000-1-21

     On 2000 Jan 21 UT04:40 G. Emersen (Golden, CO, USA, 30cm focal length 
     lens with Wratten 25 ref filter) took 43 CCD images of the eclipse of 
     the Moon and on one of them at 04:40UT (exposure 0.3 sec) a relatively 
     bright spot appeared in the southern part of Mare Fecunditatis. The 
     spot looks sharper than the rest of the Moon and so might be a cosmic 
     ray? CCD images taken from Washington D.C. by A.C. Cook at this time, 
     do not show this spot, however exposures were at intervals of 0.25 sec 
     and so might have missed this spot if it happened during image readout. 
     The ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Jul-06 UT 06:15-06:35 Ill=99% Plato observed by Chernov on 1921-11-15

2020-Jul-08 UT 06:18-06:38 Ill=90% Messier_A observed by Moore_P on 1951-8-20

     Messier A 1951 Aug 20 UT 01:48-03:00 Observed by P.Moore 
     (England, 8.5" reflector, x350). Bright cloud like circular 
     patch seen on S wall of Messier A. It was the brightest object 
     in the vicinity. Observations ceased due to the Moon setting 
     behind a tree. W.Haas thinks that this effect is not unusual at 
     similar colongitudes. Moore checked again under similar 
     illumination and still considers the Aug 20 appearance abnormal.

     reflector, x75 and photography used, seeing 4/10 and the Moon's 
     altitude was 45deg) photographed Romer crater and recorded two adjacent 
     bright cigar shaped objects - these were the same size as an 
     observation made in 1987. Darling believes that these are ridges. 
     Cameron comments that in LO-IV 192-3,2 a ridge is revealed on the 
     inside wall that matches the description. Cameron 2006 catalog ID=66 
     and weight=2. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2020-Jul-12 UT 09:20-10:18 Ill=56% Vallis_Schroteri observed by Unknown_Observer on 1994-4-3

     On 1995 Apr 03 at UT 03:30 Unknown Observer (Transparency good) saw a 
     darkening in the Cobra Head, Schroter's valley area of Aristarchus - 
     the best example that he had ever seen. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=474 
     and the weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=. Reference - BAA Lunar Section 
     circular 1995 Oct, p125 and personal communication from David Darling 
     to the BAA on 6/6/1995. Note it is uncertain whether this refers to the 
     Clementine mission or to somebody who observed during the Clementine 
     mission, or somebody with that surname. Anyway if it is the Clementine 
     mission then the date is wrong - possibly the year should have been 
     1994? The Cameron catalogue does actually mention a TIFF on Clementine 
     mission? The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=474 and the weight=3. I am 
     assuming that the year should be 1994 and not 1995? The ALPO/BAA 
     catalog weight=1 until we can find out what the correct date is?

     On 1944 Aug 12 at UT 04:00 H.P. Wilkins (Kent, UK, 8.52" 
     reflector) observed that central craterlet in Plato was 
     unusually bright and shows up as a bright white spot on his 
     sketch - though this might have been artistic license in his 
     sketch. His written notes refer to the unusual lack of a rim 
     (especially the northern part) to this craterlet.

2020-Jul-15 UT 09:03-10:29 Ill=28% Moon observed by Darling_D on 1979-9-16

     On 1979 Sep 16 at UT 08:00-09:00 D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 
     12.5" reflector, x62-x97, clear, but Moon at low altitude) detected 
     four new features that he had not seen before in Earthsine in 
     comparison with what he saw on 16 Jul 1979, this time in the southern 
     part of the Moon. pin-point flashes were seen within these bluish 
     areas. Each time a flash occurred the gas clouds brightened (sometimes 
     by 6x) for a few seconds. Cameron thinks that these are related to 
     moving clouds on the Earth's limb e.g. mackeral sky. Cameron 2006 
     catalog ID=69 and weight=1. ALPO/BAA weight=1.


2020-Jul-15 UT 10:14-10:47 Ill=27% Briggs_A observed by Butler_FC on 1980-2-11

     Briggs A 1980 Feb 11 UT 06:30-07:00 Observed bt Butler_FC 
     (Brixton, UK, 22cm Newtonian reflector, x64, x104, seeing IV). 
     Found Briggs A to be brownish in colour at x64, however the 
     colour vanished at 06:55 when x104 was used. Switching back to 
     x64 the colour was still there but fainter. The colour fade may 
     have been due to day light glare encroaching? Could not see this 
     effect anywhere else on the Moon but did detect what he regarded 
     as a permanent coloured spot (yellow) between Cruger and 
     Grimaldi. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2020-Jul-17 UT 10:16-10:36 Ill=12% Dawes observed by Hewick_G on 1997-10-28

     On 1987 Oct 28 at UT 05:05 G. Hewick (UK) observed a 1 sec duration 
     flash on the lunar surface (night side) whilst waiting to observe a 
     lunar occultation of X17959. The colour was yellow and the brightness 
     was approximately magnitude 1 - there was no movement. The location of 
     the flare was between Daws and Vitruvius (17N, 29E).


2020-Jul-17 UT 10:36-11:16 Ill=11% Plato observed by Short_J on 1751-4-22

     James Short, Dr Harris and Mr Stephens saw initially a streak of 
     light on the shadowed floor of Plato. They were not expecting to see
     any light to reach the floor. Shortly afterwards they saw a second
     streak of light parallel to the first and this shortly divided
     into two. Gaps in the mountains were found for both streaks,
     but they were unable to understand why one of the streaks divided
     into two. Cameron's 1978 assigns this TLP an ID of 20 and a weight
     of 5. The ALPO/BAA catalog assigns a weight of 1.

     On 1969 Apr 20 at UT 20:00? Allen (Cambridge, UK, 8" refractor x50), 
     seeing=good) saw an intense star-like point of 9th magnitude, with no 
     angular diameter, 4-5x brighter than the surroundings in Earthshine. 
     The observer did not think that it was a TLP, but Cameron considers the 
     report is similar to many other TLP descriptions of Aristarchus in 
     Earthshine. Marks (England, UK) who was observing at 20:20UT did not 
     note anything unusual in Aristarchus. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1121 
     and weight=3. The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2020-Jul-26 UT 02:23-03:14 Ill=34% Daniell observed by Price_M on 1979-12-24

     M. Price of Camberley, UK noticed that an area in relation
     to the central area of the floor could not be resolved. Averted
     vision was used, but this did not help to resolve detail. The crater
     was close to the terminator and was in general sharply in focus
     apart from the suspect area. No spurious colour seen. Sketch
     supplied.P. Foley wonders if the effect was due to the resolution
     limit of Price's scope? Cameron 2006 extension catalog ID=78

2020-Jul-28 UT 02:59-04:05 Ill=57% Proclus observed by Foley_PW on 1988-7-22

     On 1988 Jul 22 at UT 02:15-04:00 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK, 11" 
     reflector) made a sketch of a dark area of the (East) floor of 
     Proclus that revealed a large anomalous dark region - there 
     should be no shade here when the sun is at an altitude of above 
     50 deg!. BAA lunar section archives reveal similar dark shadings 
     - however on this night it was a different shaped dark area. The 
     appearance was confirmed by several observers. Foley reported 
     that the region affected stretched from Proclus to Theophilus. 
     The TLP was seen in the USA too by D, Darling as early as 
     01:31UT and by others on his TLP network - brightness 
     measurements of the "c.p." were 3.5 and the remainder of the 
     floor was 5.5. However the observers did not all agree on the

2020-Jul-30 UT 02:06-02:55 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.

     splodge" although it was quite difficult to see when imaged with video. 
     Foley and Cameron comment on IR sensitivity of the CCD camera used. The 
     Cameron 2006 catalog ID=285 and the weight=1. The ALPO/BAA weight=1. 


2020-Jul-30 UT 03:26-05:01 Ill=78% Proclus observed by Darling_D on 1988-7-24

     On 1988 Jul 24 D. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 12" reflector, 
     x150, S=7/10, T=3) observed the following in Proclus: "At 0213 
     the previously observed gray area was 1/3 of July 22 and V 
     shaped and fanned out across the floor. Could see hint of knot 
     seen before. Craters named in 7/23/88 (#319) were all normal 
     this time too". Is it possible that this report refers to the 
     crater "Gray" rather than "Proclus" as the column field suggests 
     in the Cameron catalog? The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=333 and 
     weight=5. The ALPO/BAA catalog weight=2.
