While I agree that the title of the article was an exaggeration, there are a few notable points about this event:

1. The telescope recorded the impact on the very first night of observations. This suggests that meteors may hit the moon more often than we think, especially in between meteor showers, when no one is looking.

2. People are actually starting to worry about this. The fact that there is a dedicated telescope set up to watch the moon for meteor impacts suggests someone out there takes this problem seriously (without getting into the argument if it's a real problem or not).
