In the book, the first alien to come down hits the earth like a meteor and then sits in the ground for at least a day (Wells, 1898). However, in the movie, the first alien to come down hits the earth by coming down in its capsule through lightening.

Fitzgerald described what happens when Nick was going on a trip with Gatsby in his car, “-only half, for as we twisted among the pillars of the elevated I heard the familiar “jug-jug-spat!” of a motor cycle, and a frantic policeman rode alongside. “All right, old sport,” called Gatsby.
Reading every line of the novel literally, the narrator learned that the aliens’ eyes can move around the room, even shifting from person to person. They can remove other body parts, divide themselves into two parts to be in two places at once, and function without brains.

Bump! Our plane has now landed, and my Maranatha mission team begins a stunning exploration that will change our lives forever.
