Their neighbor, a local astronomer observes Mars periodic outbreaks and takes them for a volcanic eruption. In the morning near the town drops a giant meteorite. The astronomer goes to examine him and invites him to Amy. Later they can be connected to another group led by astronomer from London. The meteorite begins to rise into the air and apart, being around people ignite. Later, from under the meteorite appears a giant fighting machine-tripod. She goes to town destroying people and the spraying of poisonous black smoke.

Phenomena in artwork: UFO

Alien ships come to Earth from Mars. They look like huge spherical stones, which people initially take them for meteorites. Under the outer shell is hiding a perfectly smooth black surface, covered with the same black oily liquid. Some time after the fall of the sphere starts to take off, spinning around the vertical axis and dropping the outer coating. Rising above the trees, it begins to incinerate being around people, gradually spilling into small particles. After this process is complete, it remains only the ash-covered crater at the crash site of the "meteorite". Presumably, it is from these craters after some time appear a "tripod" – alien combat vehicles.

Phenomena in artwork: The Alien

The aliens look like giant three-legged spiders. All their limbs end in a cusp, i.e. do the aliens missing fingers, and it is unclear how they were able to create such high-tech devices or at least how they control them.

The aliens are moved to the huge fighting machines-"tripods". They are enormous in size and is equipped with both radiation (incinerating everything in its path "death rays"), and chemical (black smoke poisoned) weapons. Though tripod and sturdy enough to withstand shots from rifles, machine guns and even cannons, a volley of the naval artillery is able to destroy them.

Leaving his war machines, aliens behave like animals and not as highly developed beings that can overcome interplanetary space. So, they feed on the corpses of dead people directly from the ground without any treatment, and that is what leads to mass death: together with the nutrients they absorb pathogenic bacteria (in particular, the causative agent of typhoid fever), from which the Martians have no immunity.

The goal of the aliens is telefoniranje of the Earth, giving it the appearance of Mars. To do this they spray spores of the Martian plants, which displace the earth and make the soil infertile. Apparently, changing the atmosphere of the planet in the same way it affects people: they lose their ability to bear children. As it turns out by the end of the last episode, the Martian plants are also afraid of the earth's diseases (first of all human is the same of typhoid fever).
