A transient lunar phenomenon (TLP), or lunar transient phenomenon (LTP), is a short-lived light, color, or change in appearance on the lunar
Just had a look at some of the TLP reasons and rather interesting to say the least,
It has been suggested that effects related to either electrostatic charging or discharging might be able to account for some of the transient lunar
phenomena. One possibility is that electrodynamic effects related to the fracturing of near-surface materials could charge any gases that might be
present, such as implanted solar wind or radiogenic daughter products.
Impact events are continually occurring on the lunar surface. The most common events are those associated with micrometeorites, as might be
encountered during meteor showers. Impact flashes from such events have been detected from multiple and simultaneous Earth-based observations.
Some TLPs may be caused by gas escaping from underground cavities. A number of these gaseous events are purported to display a distinctive reddish
hue, while others have appeared as white clouds or an indistinct haze.
Seems quite possible one of these may have been the reasons, anyone elese have a similar experience or got any pics of what they might look like?
