No, the Moon is now almost entirely dormant.
Take a look at this image of the Copernicus Crater which famously has extensive 'rays' connected to it which span a large part of the Moon's globe. Does it look as if it were formed by a meteorite?
Take a closer look.
See how the inner parts of its walls consist of a series of collapsed terraces?
See also the central mountain peaks on the crater floor? How were these formed?
See also how flat and level the crater floor is. Why is the floor not curved and bowl shaped at the bottom?
Still convinced it was formed by a meteorite?
In my opinion the terracing is evidence of a domed feature collapsing and this explains the central mountain peaks which 'Bounced back' against the collapse.
