TLP Repeat Illumination/Libration and Earthshine predictions for: Russia - Vladivostock



Ill is percentage illumination of the Moon
*Indicates a repeat illumination and libration event to within +/- 1 deg for both
A non-* indicates just repeat illumination to within +/-0.5 deg


2024-Jun-01 UT 18:48-18:53 Ill=27% Limb observed by Dunn_S on 1762-6-16

     Closest parts of the Moon at Saturn appearing from
     occultation were dull and hazy. Was this an effect of
     the lunar atmosphere or a high haze and halo around the Moon?
     Cameron's 2006 catalog extension gives this an ID No. of 3
     and a weight of 1. The ALPO/BAA catalog weight is also 1.


2024-Jun-01 UT 18:48-19:02 Ill=27% Earthshine: sporadic meteors

2024-Jun-03 UT 19:37-19:39 Ill=9% S_Pole observed by Hill_H on 1984-7-25

     Southern cusp obseved by H.Hill (UK) on 1984 Jul 25. Solar 
     Selenographic colongitude=232.6. Observer noted a dusky ill-
     defined strip in Earthshine extending beyond the southern cusp 
     that appeared "atmospheric". Note that this is almost certianly 
     not a TLP but is worth checking out if the libration and solar 
     colongitude is similar, just to verify that this is what the Moon 
     normally looks like. ALPO/BAA weight=1.

2024-Jun-09 UT 11:16-11:33 Ill=10% Gassendi observed by Spain_D on 1991-4-17

     On 1991 Apr 17 at UT 01:22-02:37 D. Spain (Fairdale, KY, USA, 3.5" 
     refractor, x30-x111, S=5/10, T=5.5) observed (UT01:22-02:25) an orange 
     flare and some brighenings in the crater Gassendi. With the naked eye 
     he saw a glowing spot on the Earthshine side of the Moon. When he 
     turned his telescope onto this he found out that this was Gassendi 
     crater. By comparison, Aristarchus was just a small point. Herzog 
     (Racine, WI, USA, 2.5" refractor, x28, S=G and T=6-7) confirmed Spain's 
     observation UT 01:51-02:37?. Darling (Sun Praire, WI, USA, 3" 
     refractor, x56, S=7/10, T=5) did not see anything unusual UT 02:15-
     02:32?. Cameron speculates that the orange colour might be from the 
     Moon's low altitude. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=421 and the weight=1. 
     The ALPO/BAA weight=1.

     Plato 1919 Mar 05 UT 17:19:17:34 Observed by Selivanov, Tartakov 
     (Russia, 4" refractor? x150) "Crater seemed to be an intense green in 
     the background of Ashen light. Slightly to the left (east?) of it's 
     centre a bright spot that sparkled with a phosphor. light, lighting up 
     the whole crater so that its W. edge could be seen. Light did not 
     change for the whole time." NASA catalog weight=4 (good). NASA catalog 
     ID #371.


2024-Jun-10 UT 10:46-12:03 Ill=16% W_Limb observed by Johnson_LT on 1949-5-31

     In 1949 May 31 UT02:37 LT Johnson observed a flash near the W 
     limb of the Moon at the same latitude as Riccioli. No colour 
     seen, the magnitude was 9-10, and duration < 0.5 sec.  If there 
     was any motion then it must have been < 24 km. He wasn't looking 
     at it when it happened, so the motion aspect is uncertain. 
     Indeed he was not absolutely certain if it was on the limb, or 
     just inside or outside? The BAA/ALPO weight=1.


2024-Jun-10 UT 10:46-11:05 Ill=16% Aristarchus observed by Cross on 1969-5-20

     Harris (CA, USA) observed brightenings, pulsations, scintillations in 
     Aristarchus crater. Cameron says independent confirmation seen by 4 
     observers, 1-2 magnitude increases, ranged between 1-30sec. Most active 
     period was 03:18-03:20UT, 04:17-04:27UT (Las Cruces). Calkins (West

     in the north east (IAU?) quadrant of the floor there was a very bright 
     pin-point blue-white flash of magntude 2 for approximately 0.5seconds. 
     After this the bright glowing of the crater diminished over about 15-
     20 sec befofre returning to normal. The Cameron 1978 catalog ID=1366

2024-Jun-10 UT 11:25-12:12 Ill=17% Aristarchus observed by Watkins_E on 1972-3-18

     On 1972 Mar 18 at UT2015 E. Watkins, P. Hooks, D. Harris and R. Pieper 
     (Conditions bad: a lot of mist and haze in the sky, 10" (x80 and x160) 
     and 4.5" reflectors (x45, x150 and x225), observers were located in the 
     UK) Aristarchus seen on the night side of the Moon - P. Hooke saw a red 
     orange outburst from the ctater. When E. Watkins had a look, it just 
     resembled a misty white area i.e. normal. Eyepieces were changed but it 
     stayed misty white. Hooke was an inexperienced TLP observer at the 
     time. Watkins did however notice some variation in brightness but put 
     this down to atmospheric conditions. This is a BAA observation.

     90mm Questar reflector, x130, seeing II-III, transparency poor 
     to moderate). The crater had it's north-east to west wall 
     illuminated and a central feature on the floor, faintly seen - 
     both of these are normal. The crater itself though was much 
     brighter in a red filter, bright in a wellow filter, but dull 
     in a blue filter. Possible variation seen whilst using the red

     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.

     On 1980 Oct 17 at UT18:40-19:10 G. Blair (Weir, Renfrewshire, 
     Scotland, UK, 22cm reflector, seeing II, transparency excellent, 
     no spurious colour) noticed at 18:40UT that the bright central 
     peak of Alphonsus was elongated. At 18:41UT, at higher power, 
     the central peak separated from a bright point of light, 
     intensity about that of a 6th magnitude star. at 18:43UT a 
     filter check was made of the suspect point and surrounding 
     regions - slightly nrighter in red. At 18:50UT intensity of 
     bright point reduced to equivalent of 4th magnitude star. Noted 
     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

2024-Jun-16 UT 10:54-12:51 Ill=71% 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.


2024-Jun-16 UT 11:20-13:14 Ill=71% 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.


2024-Jun-16 UT 11:33-13:29 Ill=71% 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.

2024-Jun-16 UT 12:04-14:00 Ill=71% 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.

     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.
