Observing the Moon
The advent of spaceflight, culminating in the landings on the Moon, has generated a feeling that Earthbound observation of our satellite is now useless. This is not really true. What is true, however, is that the type of observations carried out with Earthbound telescopes has changed dramatically during the past years. Time was when drawing details of lunar formations as seen at the telescope was of prime importance. Today it remains one of the best ways to learn about the Moon, and at the same time to get to know many of the details intimately, so that you can spot any apparent change or unusual feature immediately. Transient Lunar Phenomena Surveys of the surface have been completed for the major part of the lunar surface, but there remains at least one field of study wide open to the amateur observer or the professional who may be so inclined. This is the observation of Transient Lunar Phenomena, or TLPs. In this connection it is recommended that the observer first gets to know some of the formations intimately by close inspection, backed up by drawing under many angles of illumination during the lunation. Once this has been achieved, one can start patrolling for TLPs. As the name implies, these are temporary phenomena, and they tend to occur in or near craters on the margins of the maria.
