No one could understand it.  Why would Dr. Piper commit suicide in such a horrible way?  And at the very moment of his professional triumph!  The new comet was going to be named for him!

No one could understand, that was, until they started to clean up the charred remains of his office and found a page of his notes that had escaped the fire, singed at the edges but still legible:

“It has eyes.  It looked back at me.  It knows we’re here now.  And it’s coming.”
