Veezee: The Invasion

The world had waited for this day for most of one hundred years. Now, millions of people were camped along the highways in the California desert, hoping to see the visitors when they arrived. Millions more were in the mountains, curious but fearful of the newcomers.

Although many did not believe before, it had been obvious for the past two weeks that the visitors’ arrival was imminent because their retrorockets gleamed brighter than any stars in the nighttime sky. On the eve of arrival, spectators in the Americas saw a brilliant display of blue flames clustered in nine huge ovals spread across the sky from the east horizon to the west. The spectacle was so bright that it lit even clouded night skies.

The signals had first been received in October of 2011 at the radio astronomy station in Arecibo. The weak signals drew attention first because their wavelength was unusual for the dark portion of sky from which they had been received. Previously published charts of that part of the sky listed no radiation of any similar nature so the new signals excited astronomers. And then after several weeks, the large computers at Arecibo began to find repetitions of complex patterns in the signals. After reviewing the data, almost all scientists believed these signals to be the first communication from intelligent beings outside our own solar system.
