High resolution spectroscopy of the Moon's atmosphere allows to analyze the closest layers to the lunar surface giving the possibility to get information on the source and the evolution of the atmospheric atoms and their distribution with respect to the latitude. The sodium emission, that is one of the main components of the atmosphere, is easier to study thanks to the good efficiency of the solar resonant scattering. A long term program of observations of the Moon's sodium atmosphere has… CONTINUE READING
