Solar Radiation analysis on Lunar DEM

I would like to do a solar radiation analysis on the lunar DEM I
have, but I am not sure if ArcMap's analysis will be true to the moon, especially
since the tool accounts for atmospheric effect, and the moon has no atmosphere.
I am concerned it will give me solar radiation data for the Earth.
However, the projection system and datum is specific to the moon...

Anyone have any idea? I would am trying to perform a site suitability analysis on the moon, and this is an important part of the model.
