- During March and April of 1787, Britain’s Sir Frederick William Herschel, pioneer of the reflecting telescope and discoverer of Uranus, claimed to have sighted three “bright spots,” four “volcanoes,” and lights moving “above the moon.” - In July 1821, a German astronomer reported sighting “brilliant flashing light spots.” His was one of numerous reports of flashing or blinking lights seen on the moon. - In February 1877, a line or streak of light was seen stretching across the crater Eudoxus. This light was observed for about an hour, ruling out the possibility that it was merely a meteorite striking the lunar surface with a flash. - Two steaks of medium intensity light were recorded on June 14, 1940, in the crater Plato, a location where reports of lights have numbered in the thousands. - A “black cloud surrounded by violet color” was seen in the Sea of Tranquility by Canadian astronomers on September 11, 1967.
