CHRONOLOGICAL LISTING OF LUNAR EVENTSb Y B. M. Middlehurst and J. M. Burley

INTRODUCTION The catalogue of lunar events which follows contains all information available to the authors up to April 15, 1966. Column 1 gives a running number, column 2 the date of occurrence, column 3 the site and duration of the event, column 4 a short description of the phenomenon, column 5 the name(s) of the observer o r observers, and column 6 the number of the reference. The references are listed following the catalogue. A lunar event may be defined here a s a temporary change in the appearance of a lunar feature, involving a limited area (in most cases, of dimensions of a few kilometers) of the lunar surface. For the sake of easy reference, however, reports of so-called luminescence, marked with a double asterisk, have been included in the catalogue, although in two cases these involve rather larger areas of the moon (Catalogue Nos. 195 and 200). The list of lunar events is as complete as we have been able to make it. Final revisions will involve checking of the remaining primary references, a few of which we still have to find. We have not used reports of events which, for one reason o r another

(e. g., through special lighting effects, multiple reflections, and changes ofappearance caused by libration), were considered to be spurious. No reports of apparently permanent changes a r e included. Many have been reported for sites such as Messier, Lime/, and Bartlett, but in most cases, the evidence for real change is not conclusive.

We wish to record with gratitude help given by M i s s B. Welther and Dr. G. Fielder in locating many old papers unavailable in Tucson, and the contribution of data by Drs. J. Larink, J. O'Keefe, and P. Treanor, S. J., M r s . W. Cameron and especially by P. Moore. E. Whitaker has kindly checked the evaluation of doubtful cases.
