dc.description.abstract Surveyor 7 photographed a bright glow along the western lunar horizon one hour after local sunset. This horizon glow must result from the forward scattering of sunlight by a swarm of dust grains extending 3 to 30 centimeters above the local horizon with a column density of 5 grains/ cm2. The observable glow is evoked by grains approximately 6 microns in radius. An annual churning rate of 10-3 gr/cm2 is implied. A model is presented for dust cloud production in terms of electrostatic levitation of lunar surface fines. en
