Meteors of the Darkness

One night, a storm of meteors is detected headed for Earth-faster than any ever seen. They're far off, but they're going to hit, and at near the speed of light. Then the meteors land the very next night...

"Look at this!"

Those three words marked the beginning of the busiest night in the observatory's history. A swarm of meteors was showing up, more than had ever been seen. But that wasn't the most amazing thing. The most amazing thing was that they were travelling impossibly fast, near the speed of light. The scientists calculated that they would collide with the earth, but not for another year. They were too far off, despite their speed. The human race would have time to prepare and survive.

How wrong they were...

The End
