The moon was enveloped in a huge cloud
Astrologers have found a huge accumulation of dust hovering at an altitude of a few 10 s km above the surface of the moon. It was surrounded by "morning" regions artificial Earth satellite.

The LADEE probe has found a huge accumulation of dust on the moon. "The opening of this constantly existing clouds of dust particles around the moon, it was a good farewell gift to our probe. We check to see whether there are similar patterns and other moons and airless bodies in the Solar system," said research head of mission LADEE Mihai Koranyi Institute of Colorado in boulder.

As the data demonstrate LADEE, Earth satellite frames rather thick shroud of dust particles orbiting the moon at an altitude of 20 to 100 km, and this clouds the irregular shape and it is noticeably thicker in the part of the moon, which at this point begins the morning and looks in the Sun. Most likely, it was formed as a result of the impact of comet dust that every day runs into the lunar soil at high speed, throwing into open space many particles of soil.

For the first time about the presence of clouds of dust in the space above the surface of the moon, scientists began to think in the late 60's of last century, when they saw images obtained by unmanned landing modules during the lunar "sunsets". These photos, also the stories of the astronauts "Apollo", at sunrise and sunset on the moon near the horizon emerges a mysterious glow.

How to convince scientists in an article published in the journal Nature, the existence of this unusual cloud of dust over the surface of the "morning" of regions of the moon may partly explain why the astronauts "Apollo" saw the mysterious lights on the horizon" during the lunar sunsets and sunrises.
