I read somewhere recently that the Earth atmosphere has been collecting more electrons than protons over the past 4 billion years, should we assume Earth has a large negative charge?

If so is it possible Earth could use the Moon to balance the charge kinda like clouds during a rainstorm?
Giant ligntning bolt from the Earth to the moon.

I was just thinking, is that possible or am I asking a very dumb question?

Hi Earth,

What a very interesting question. I don't know much about protons and electrons so I can't answer if what you said is possible, but it sure is something I would like to see!

There are lightning bolts that do go outward/up into the sky, however they don't make it past the outer atmosphere. The moon is really far away!

The average centre-to-centre distance from the Earth to the Moon is 384,403 km which is about thirty times the diameter of the Earth.

via Wikipedia

I have to say I doubt a lightning bolt is traversing that distance.
