Storyline

Astronomer Neil Gant fails to predict a comet hitting Ireland with disastrous consequences. However fear for a repeat gets his sky-watch program more NASA-resources. This time an approaching series of comets is detected in time, but only to calculate they're too large and fast to be eliminated. The target area, around Pennsylvania, is determined and hastily evacuated in a race against apocalyptic time. Written by KGF Vissers

Did You Know?

Goofs

Comet's tail is incorrectly directed. It is caused by solar wind, not friction, because the latter doesn't exist in vacuum. Therefore the tail should be directed away from the Sun, rather then left straight behind the comet. See more »

Entertaining Educational Production
1 July 2008 | by (Dallas, TX) – See all my reviews

Geographic goofs aside, this film is fairly good. It is essentially an educational piece platformed on a drama with multi-dimensional characters moving the action along as they provide enlightening information about such a likelihood. It addresses some of the public notions of what would happen and why and makes the distinction between what we've seen in Hollywood portrayals and what scientists know to be likely, especially with regard to prediction and intervention. The science is pretty accurate and the mood is one of the inevitable. It's not a matter of IF but WHEN a NEO strikes Earth.

The production is British but they put the object strike at Pittsburgh, my hometown. I was a bit amused. Why Pittsburgh?
