An Owomoyela. God in the Sky. (Asimovs, March 2011).

A short but effective/affecting story.

A huge light appears in the sky – and the science shows that it is impossibly distant for something so large and bright. We follow a grandfather and his adult grandchild as they work out their own paths through this event – he reviewing his decision to leave his religion behind. Through their conversations we learn about them, the generation between them, and how humanity is adjusting to something unknowable.
