Just watched a Youtube of a TV show about "weird planets". They show early on a collision between two planets, proportioned about the same as the Earth and the Moon. The interesting thing is that they show part of the "Earth" being pulled up to meet the "Moon." Could this happen? Could it happen on an Earth-like planet in collision with an Moon-like body? Could the pull of the Moon's gravity "levitate" part of the Earth's crust. Could an old hack write that scene well enough for the reader to picture?
