Nothing to do with any atmosphere.
Its just that the moon has been bombarded with rocks for all of its life, and some of those impacts are sp large that it can knock rocks off into
space. Recall that the gravity of the moon is much less than earth.
After that, the rocks may float about in roughly the same orbit as earth, still circling the sun, and doing this for a random amount of time.
Perhaps even a few million years.
Occasionally, one of those rocks may hit earth. Its quite random, not anything to do with accuracy.
is one random page on the topic.
