Shoot it down...
Because the best way to minimize damage from a falling object is to make lots and lots of falling objects!
I especially like the low yield nuke comment. Radioactive falling objects! Yay!
The ignorance in these comments is astounding.
"The Moon is tidally locked to Earth, the same side is always pointing to Earth. Where you land if its day, it'll stay day, no 14 day nights..."
Go outside every few days, and look at the moon. Keep in mind your always seeing the same side. You might notice something - its not always a full moon.
