The fact that the moon does indeed have an atmosphere has never been in question...

Estimated Composition (particles per cubic cm):
Helium 4 (4He) - 40,000 ;
Neon 20 (20Ne) - 40,000 ;
Hydrogen (H2) - 35,000
Argon 40 (40Ar) - 30,000 ;
Neon 22 (22Ne) - 5,000 ;
Argon 36 (36Ar) - 2,000
Methane - 1000 ;
Ammonia - 1000 ;
Carbon Dioxide (CO2) - 1000
Trace Oxygen (O+), Aluminum (Al+), Silicon (Si+)
Possible Phosphorus (P+), Sodium (Na+), Magnesium (Mg+)

Composition of the tenuous lunar atmosphere is poorly known and variable, these are estimates of the upper limits of the nighttime ambient atmosphere composition.

Moon's Extended Sodium Atmosphere

A new wide-angle coronagraphic-type imaging system used for the lunar eclipse of 16 July 2000 resulted in detections of the lunar sodium exosphere out to 20 lunar radii, approximately twice the size recorded with narrower fields of view during previous eclipses.
I for one would respectfully ask Henry Deacon how he knows for certain that the figures for atmosphere on the moon are correct

We also have clouds on the moon...

Endymion Crater and Region

Few days later...

There are also sunset and sunrise rays on the Moon... and these can only be caused by dust in the air...

Surveyor was the first to spot them... but scientists did not want to admit they were seeing what they saw.... so they kept quiet about it...

But the Apollo Astronauts saw them... and drew sketches... Why did they not photograph these wondrous sights? Maybe they did... in those 'missing' film rolls

There is a LOT more atmosphere than they are telling us...

This is what we are talking about for sunset rays...

And NO I am not making this up....

Moon Fountains
March 30, 2005

In the early 1960s before Apollo 11, several early Surveyor spacecraft that soft-landed on the Moon returned photographs showing an unmistakable twilight glow low over the lunar horizon persisting after the sun had set. Moreover, the distant horizon between land and sky did not look razor-sharp, as would have been expected in a vacuum where there was no atmospheric haze.

But most amazing of all, Apollo 17 astronauts orbiting the Moon in 1972 repeatedly saw and sketched what they variously called "bands," "streamers" or "twilight rays" for about 10 seconds before lunar sunrise or lunar sunset. Such rays were also reported by astronauts aboard Apollo 8, 10, and 15.
Moon Fountains

December 7, 2005: Every lunar morning, when the sun first peeks over the dusty soil of the moon after two weeks of frigid lunar night, a strange storm stirs the surface.

The next time you see the moon, trace your finger along the terminator, the dividing line between lunar night and day. That's where the storm is. It's a long and skinny dust storm, stretching all the way from the north pole to the south pole, swirling across the surface, following the terminator as sunrise ceaselessly sweeps around the moon.

Never heard of it? Few have. But scientists are increasingly confident that the storm is real.
