I would be interested to read more of the mechanics of this; with such a low gravity I am surprised that the fragments fell back with sufficient velocity to create a crater. In fact I wouldn’t have thought they would fall back at all. So how come the extra craters? It would have helped if the article had included a little more explanation.

Are you thinking what I'm thinking? Some creatures popped their heads up to see what the hell was going on after their home was attacked by aliens?
