These features were monitored by the "Haas group" and their results recorded in the paper by Haas "Does anything ever happen on the Moon" 1942 - This paper provides the best descriptions of individual features and their relevant "colours". Many in the list may be referred to in the "historical" literature, but references have not yet been checked.
