For early history of moon, it’s orbit was very tight, and distance from earth, very close. Close enough for moon to be in radiation belts? Might one consider then the ancient moon as a conductor, generating a current, electric and magnetic fields? Might any lunar rocks current magnetism be an imprint of such ancient moon’s residence in earth’s radiation belts? And the latter consistent with an early dynamo for earth? Would this be more plausible than alternative explanations of such magnetism?
