Gary sent in the link https://scitechdaily.com/moons-mystery-moisture-electrons-from-earth-may-be-forming-lunar-water/ … high energy electrons in earth’s plasma sheet, or sheaf, are conributing to weathering processes on the surface of the moon. The electrons may have led to the formation of water. The new finding may also explain the presence of water ice in crevices, clefts, depressions and shady locations on the moon.

At https://scitechdaily.com/eclipsing-theories-parker-soars-through-powerful-coronal-mass-ejection-vacuuming-up-interplanetary-dust/ … we have another process where dust, and presumably material dispersed by meteor streams, can be dissipated. NASAs Parker Solar Probe recently passed through a powerful CME event. The plasma appears to have interacted with planetary dust in the vicinity of the Sun, a lot of which may have been left behind by disintegrating comets, as they rounded the Sun and broke apart. The solar wind appears to have pushed the dust away from the Sun.
