A strange series of solar flares proves fatal for inhabitants of the Earth, except for the fortunate few who are somehow immune from the effects. Animals go insane and human beings turn to white powder, leaving behind only empty clothing. A handful of survivors attempt to rebuild their lives on the de-populated Earth. Written by

Yup, I was a kid when I saw this, just like nearly all the others. Oddly, I recall it was similar to the Star Trek episode "Omega Glory" as well, what with the white powder left spilling out of people's clothes. I always wondered, since I recall that the main characters' camping companion was feverish and in seeming pain for half the day after being exposed to the solar flare before he tuned to white powder, why so many of the empty clothes with powder spilling out they happened across were in positions that indicated that the occupants had disintegrated immediately without undergoing a period of suffering (e.g. on a playground carousel, behind the wheel of a car, etc.). Oh well, I overanalyze. I remember being likewise bothered by a recent movie where an airline pilot captain had to deal with nearly half his passengers vanishing, leaving empty clothes behind (minus white powder). brr...getting' the shivers.
