I just got a flash is it possible the moon bounce signal where reflected on this "ionosphere" instead of the moon surface or both or is it 
the moon libration signal often reported by moon bouncer a kind of signal mix the one reflected over the surface and the one reflected by 
the ionosphere back to the moon surface working against each other?
