The moon does have an atmosphere, but the pressure is ridiculously low, and it is of mostly scientific interest and not much else. Keep in mind that
space itself is not quite a vacuum; even in interstellar space, there is some gas. However, the amount is so tiny that the atmospheric conditions on
the moon make a far better vacuum than what is technologically possible here on Earth. Thus, for all practical purposes, the moon does not have an
atmosphere. As NGC2736 pointed out, most outgassings escape into space.
