2020-Jul-01 UT 18:54-19:43 Ill=86% Gassendi observed by Sartory on 1966-5-30 *

     Gassendi 1966 May 30 UT 20:32-20:59 Observed by Sartory (England, 8.5"

2020-Jul-01 UT 19:04-19:56 Ill=86% SW_Limb observed by Logue_DA on 1955-1-5

     On 1955 Jan 05 at 01:00-01:30 UT D.A. Logue (Larchment, PA, 
     USA, 15cm reflector at x340, seeing Good) saw a strange blue 
     light above the surface of the Moon where the night and the 
     day meet. He observed this light for more than 30 min and it 
     did not appear to move. It appeared like a star in that the 
     rays of light came from it. The observer adds that he first 
     thought thst the objects was a star, but later decided that it 
     had to be on the Moon itself. A drawing shows the blue spot 
     near the rugged south west (IAU?) limb of the Moon. The editor 
     of the Strolling Astronomer (Vol 8, No. 11-12, Nov-Dec 1954, 
     p146) was unable to identify the craters drawn. The editor 
     speculates that the observer saw a high mountain peak with its 
     summit in sunlight and detached from the illuminated regions - 
     however this would not explain the blue colour. Note this is 
     an ALPO observation and does not apear in the Cameron 
     catalogs. ALPO/BAA weight=2.

2020-Jul-12 UT 02:34-02:36 Ill=58% 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.

     Crisium. There was one on the north and the other two in the south west 
     to south. They lasted approximately 30 minutes and then promptly 
     vanished. Cameron says that it cannot be this date because the Moon was

     on the west wall (exterior?). By 21:30UT Fitton found Plato to be 
     normal and so was Proclus, though he did find Epigenes (bright 
     cresecent of east wall only) slightly blue to the N.W and red 
     to the S.E. Mare Crisium was normal. Prominent spurious colour 
     seen on Venus, but it was low in the sky, with blue to the north 
     and red to the south. However J.H. Reading, managed to see the 
     north east floor blurred and slightly blue from 22:45-23:00UT. 
     These reports are BAA observation. The ALPO/BAA weight=2.

     Plato 1966 Jun 27 UT 21:40-21:55  Observed by Robinson (Teignmouth, 
     England, 10.5" reflector) and Sartory (England, 8.5" reflector + Moon 
     blink) "Color (red?) on SE wall detected by Eng. moon blink sys. 
     (confirm)." NASA catalog weight=5 (very high). NASA catalog ID 949.

2020-Jul-31 UT 18:43-21:53 Ill=91% Plato observed by Foley_PW on 1983-7-21 *

     On 1983 Jul 21 at UT 21:02-23:18 P.W. Foley (Kent, UK, 12" reflector, 
     seeing=III) found the region around the cleft on the souther rim to be 
     out of focus - however atmospheric conditions were turbulent until 
     23:18UT. An unsual dark triangular region (long base against rim) was 
     seen to extend from the inner rim at 12 o'clock onto the floor for 13-
     16km. The crater had lots of detail elsewhere. M. Cook (Frimley, UK) 
     found the south east to soth west to be obscured again, but not as 
     badly as she had seen on the 20th July. J. Cook (Frimley, UK) found the 
     dark region had 2 white bands on the side and the south west wall was 
     blurred like it was on the 20th July - this time tough colour was not 
     present. There were also two light patches on the floor. Mosely 
     (Coventry, UK) observed the south wall at x120 and found the wall out 
     of focus at the 11 o'clock location. Through a yellow filter he saw a 
     "white mistiness: on the top of the southern rim and only the south 
     east cleft could be seen (no colour). By 22:40-23:00 the effect had 
     cleared up. No dark triangular patch was seen. When Marshall (Surrey, 
     UK) observed (22:30-03:00) nothing unsual was seen, though a sketch 
     provided shows a light patch on the floor located at 11 o'clock. All 
     observations, made by all observers had some atmospheric turbulence, 
     however trsnparency was good. The Cameron 2006 catalog ID=225 and the 
     weight=5. The ALPO/BAA weight=3.

2020-Jul-31 UT 22:23-23:05 Ill=92% Herodotus observed by Bartlett on 1966-6-30 *

     Herodotus 1966 Jun 30 UTC 03:10-03:35 Observed by Bartlett (Baltimore, 
     MD, USA) described in the NASA catalog as: "Bright pseudo-peak again 
     vis. within floor shadow. Peak est. 5 bright. Had seen it at successive 
     lunations in '66" 4" x280 refractor used. NASA catalog weight=4 (high). 
     NASA catalog TLP ID No. #950. ALPO/BAA weight=3.
