Did the moon get exploded?
‘On March 17, 2013, an object about the size of a small boulder hit the lunar surface,’ said Bill Cooke of NASA’s Meteoroid Environment Office, in a statement. ‘It exploded in a flash nearly 10 times as bright as anything we’ve ever seen before,” Cooke said.
Did Elon Musk rocket hit the moon?

When was the last time a meteor hit the moon?
On March 19, 2013, an impact occurred on the Moon that was visible from Earth, when a boulder-sized 30 cm meteoroid slammed into the lunar surface at 90,000 km/h (25 km/s; 56,000 mph) creating a 20-meter crater. NASA has actively monitored lunar impacts since 2005, tracking hundreds of candidate events.

What would it look like if the moon exploded?
If the moon exploded, the night sky would change. We would see more stars in the sky, but we would also see more meteors and experience more meteorites. The position of the Earth in space would change and temperatures and seasons would dramatically alter, and our ocean tides would be much weaker.
What if moon fell on Earth?
“If the Moon was even half the distance away, the tides would be eight times stronger than they are at present,” says Cook. “So if the Moon got really close to the Earth, you’d have massive tides to contend with. There would be a lot of coastal flooding.
