No one would have believed in the last years of the 1800's, that someone was watching us. Surely, we on Earth did not know it. We did not even believe there was life on Mars. From far away, the Martians were watching us and making their plans. It was six years ago that the war came upon us. One night my friend Ogilvy and I noticed bright flame on Mars. Many others saw it, too. The next night there was another flame, and the next night another. Each night for ten nights we saw the same strange kind of flame. Nobody new what it was. We did not know terrible thing that was heading toward us through the darkness of space. It was already on its way, and it was getting nearer all the time. One night I went for a walk with my wife. As we looked at the sky, I pointed out Mars to her. Many people were watching it and wondering what the flames might be. But we felt safe and had no thought of war. Then came the night of the first falling flame. It was seen early in the morning, a line of green fire across the sky. I was writing near my window, yet I did not see this strange thing that came to Earth from space.
