How a Strong Solar Coronal Mass Ejection can Eject Dust from the Moon's Surface to the Earth's Atmosphere

Abstract : A solar coronal mass ejection (CME) is a massive ejection of plasma from the Sun to the space. In this article it is shown how a strong solar coronal mass ejection can eject dust from the Moon's Surface to the space. If this ejection occurs when the Moon is in specific regions of its trajectory around the Earth, then this lunar dust can be gravitationally attracted to the Earth, forming a dust shell at the Earth's atmosphere, which can block the sunlight for some days.
