This is a really rough sketch of what I remember the Martian looking like. There wasn’t a lot of light and I didn’t get a great look but this is what I saw.

There are a few blurry photos of the invaders floating around, but none of them prepared me for the reality of them. They are so much larger than you would think. Their eyes are tiny unblinking beads set into a large, crinkly sort of shiny oval depression. On its back (?) I saw a bunch of flabby folded stuff, kind of like a brain.
