In 2001, Paul Withers performed careful calculations of what the result of Hartung's postulated impact would have been. He found that in the weeks following such an impact there would have been a tremendous blizzard of meteors on Earth, something that could not have gone unremarked in the annals of the various cultures of the time

The evidence suggests that all of these planets and moons experienced severe electrical discharges from close contact with neighboring moons and planets during their creation when the solar system’s orbital dynamics were different.
A revised electrical story could be told. The polar regions experienced cyclonic current events, similar to the polar aurora on Earth — though many orders of magnitude more energetic — from a dissimilarity charged body in proximity.
The cratering and swirls were the result of electrical discharge and cathodic erosion at one pole, etching away the surface. The opposite pole experienced electrical discharge with anodic accumulation of material, forming a dome, drawing in matter from the nearby planet, as well as sweeping in dust from the eroding pole.
As the current between bodies built at the poles, it coursed across the surface and through the interior, seeking conductive channels to short-circuit. Ionized dust created a thick plasma atmosphere, and flash-overs occurred, coursing across the mid-latitudes, scarring the face of the planet.
The same effect can be witnessed today on a far more subtle scale on Earth. The polar aurora illustrate solar currents streaming into the atmosphere, and the continuous belt of thunderstorms across the equatorial latitudes show charge differentials building and discharging as violent lightning. Climate, seismic and volcanic effects wax and wane with the solar current.

Natural electromagnetic forces in arcing current sheets differentiate charge potentials, eroding one hemisphere cathodically, while anodically depositing magnetized material on the other. It sorts material and preferentially deposits it in the kind of bewildering array that is actually seen correlating to these features.
These energetic currents built mountains, raised volcanic blisters and tornadic electrical winds; melted bedrock and left craters, lava flows, rilles and canyons — the scars of tremendous thunderbolts. Dust and debris that blanketed one hemisphere trapped gases that burst through the layers of dust, adding simple craters and cones to an already chaotic array of lightning scars and impacts from falling debris.
Nikola Tesla discovered that the Earth constitutes an enormous reservoir of free electrons, and one of his obsessions was to utilize this property for worldwide electrical transmission. In 1971 this finding was repeated for the Moon, when signals from the Apollo 15 command module were received at a time when the craft was behind the supposedly radio-opaque body. They had been carried around from the far side by electric currents in the Moon's surface layers.
