    Yes, scientists watch the mechanics of lunar tornadoes all the time.  Scientific America had a big article on it a couple of years ago.

    Of course not.  There isn't any air.

    No, tornadoes do NOT form on the Moon. Other than electrostatic moon dust fog at sunrise from the solar wind raising moon dust above the surface for 15 to 30 minutes and occasional out-gasing events which have been observed for over 500 years and meteorite impacts, the Moon has no atmosphere and no wind. 

    Someone needs to cite the EXACT Scientific American article. I dare you.

    You'd need an atmosphere for a tornado to form in - and, the moon doesn't have one. (Or, at least, not one thick enough...)

    No there's no tornadoes on the moon because there is no air on the moon if you don't have are you don't have wind
