Alfred Neate and his Cooke telescope

 Alfred Noel Neate from Carlisle on March 26th 1909 observed the Moon using his 4 inch Thomas Cooke and Son telescope on a power of 140. He observed a white spot to the west of the crater Picard. He observed the while spot from 7hr 15 min to 8h 20 min pm.

Mr Neate considered the spot to be about 10 to 11 miles in diameter. He also thought that the spot was brighter at its southern end, this and a central dark spot was seen.
