What if the K-T asteroid had a hit the moon?

And on the side facing the earth. Would that have been something cool to watch? Hot enought to have turned large parts of the moon’s surface molten? Strong enough to have caused some of the debris to put on a great fireworks display as it burned up coming thru the Earth’s atmosphere?

Any ideas??? How might the moon have fared against such an intruder?

The question is partly answered here.

As far as the effect on the Moon, the crater would be the same size as the one produced on Earth at Chixulub, that is about 210 miles in diameter. It would be easily visible to the naked eye if it were on the Earth-facing side.
