Default when is that satellite going to slam into the moon?

The one that's supposed to throw up debris that will be visible from
Earth? I read that it would impact between April and August 2009.

Oct. 9


AFAICS, Oct 9 is not between April and August 2009.

2009-06-10 Wed - Selene/Kaguya, JAXA, impacted Moon.
