This is based on a weird dream I had last night.
I was returning from some kind of vacation, and got a ride home with some other folks that had been on the trip. On the last main road before entering my neighborhood, a meteor streaked by fairly low in the sky. Suddenly, I found myself on the sidewalk a block from my street. With all my stuff in tow I hurried toward home, not sure how big that meteor had been or how close it would hit. I kept my eyes on the ground as I ran, which is a bad habit of mine.
On an impulse I stopped and looked up, and was baffled to find that the sky in front of me was suddenly night, but lit up almost purple with a bazillion stars. Behind me, the sunset sky was still intact. The line between the two was directly above, and the stars were distorted at that edge. Something big had definitely happened.
Then time slowed and I got this weird weightless feeling as I kept struggling to run home. And then out of nowhere there was a news report that a huge crater had been blasted into the earth and Australia was gone?
Just wanted to try and draw that weird sky. :v
