This painting was commissioned for the book COMET by Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan. A dinosaur contemplates a spectacular shower of comets in the evening sky 65 million years ago, unaware that a comet was about to strike the Earth and wipe out most of the species alive, including the dinosaurs. The individual depicted had something like hands and a larger brain size for its body weight than most of its contemporaries. If the dinosaurs had not been rendered extinct, perhaps the dominant form of intelligent life on Earth today would have descended from such a creature.
