The idea of vast alien spacecraft floating over major cities comes from the 1953 novel by Arthur C. Clarke. In his introduction to the 1989 edition, he explains that it was inspired by the sun glinting off of a group of balloons over London during World War Two. The idea was later borrowed by other science fiction dramatizations, notably V - Die Besucher (2009) and Independence Day (1996).
Arthur C. Clarke is the only Sci-Fi writer to have been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize and is also known for his collaboration with Stanley Kubrick on 2001: Odyssee im Weltraum (1968).
