AbstractWe report accelerated particles observed by Solar Wind Ion Detectors (SWIDs) on Chang'E-1 spacecraft close to terminator regions of the Moon. As the spacecraft crosses the terminator, a stream of ions with energy of similar to 200eV/q are detected. As the spacecraft moves to the anti-subsolar point of the Moon, the energy of these ions increase by 600 similar to 1500eV. This phenomenon occurs at north/south pole when IMF B(y) component is dominant and negative/positive. It is proposed these particles are scattered solar wind protons, accelerated by the convection electric field of the solar wind and E x B drift in the ambipolar electric field at the flank of the lunar wake. This mechanism allows a new portion of solar wind protons to enter the central lunar wake, and provides a possibility to study the property of proton scattering at the dayside of the Moon.
