Transient Lunar Phenomena

Also TLP.

A term used in reference to a short-lived anomalous change in the light or color on parts of the lunar surface.


Perhaps the first example of transient lunar phenomena was recorded by William Herschel the Astronomer who discovered Uranus. On the 18th of August 1787 Herschel looked through his telescope and saw a glow on the dark half of the crescent moon that resembled “Slowly burning charcoal thinly covered with ashes”. In the same year on the 12th of November two other astronomers noticed what they described as 'bolts of lightning' on the moon. About a year later on September 26th 1788 a German astronomer saw a white beam of light among the peaks of the lunar Alps (near to the crater Plato).

In July 1821, Franz Gruithuisen, the creator of the meteoric impact theory of Lunar cratering saw flashing points of light on the surface of the moon however when he revealed he had discovered a lunar city he was ridiculed by his colleagues and he burned his notes.
