Meteor Storm is a 2010 American disaster television film. It aired on Sci-Fi Channel on January 30, 2010.[2] The film was directed by Tibor Takács, produced by Tracey Jeffrey and Written by Peter Mohan. It stars Michael Trucco and Kari Matchett. The plot describes the attempts to save San Francisco from a barrage of meteor strikes; how devastating if those meteors touch the earth's crust or ground and burning almost completely everything to ashes.

Plot[edit]

San Francisco becomes a target for waves of destructive meteors after a rogue comet swings past the earth. For astro-physicist, Dr. Michelle Young (Kari Matchett), what was meant to be a once-in-a-lifetime celestial event, turns into a nightmare as thousands of meteors transit through the atmosphere, destroying San Francisco.

The military contacts Young to ask her to help investigate this extinction-level event and to determine what is causing the seemingly targeted strikes. Meanwhile, Colonel Tom (Michael Trucco) is responsible for the evacuation of the Bay area.

Michelle discovers that Element 120, designated Unbinilium, is the main cause of meteors targeting the San Francisco area. Millions of years ago a Unbinilium asteroid hit the Earth and created the entire bay. Dr. Young immediately reports her findings to Colonel Jack Clancey (Viv Leacock) about Unbinilium. Unfortunately, they discover that a gigantic asteroid, named Apophis, is on a collision course with Earth. Their numbers show that the rock will hit the San Francisco bay within four hours.

With each passing storm, everything deteriorates. Michelle and Colonel Clancey informs Gen. Brock (Kevin McNulty) that they need assistance from the Russians as US satellites won't be in position to guide the launched ICBMs, but the Russian satellites will be. They plan to use ICBMs to clear a path through the smaller meteor field, allowing for an experimental nuclear asteroid interceptor system to reach Apophis and divert it.

They speak with the president and he tries to negotiate with the Russian president. As time runs out the president orders the ICBMs be launched, despite Russias hesitancy to assist. The ICBMs destroy the debris field while the interceptor nuclear missiles successfully divert Apophis and save the planet.

The information in the film is astronomically incorrect. As the location of the impact of the meteors is leaded only by the rotation of the earth, it doesn't go to east, but to west.
