Expert Answer:

The path followed by moon will not any simple curve since ultimately it'll be acted upon by the gravitational force of sun and remaining planets, but the instantaneous movement due to earth's disappearance will be tangential path.

Again it'll take around 1 sec for the moon to feel the effect of earth's disppearance and then it'll move tangential to it's orbit.
