I just got zapped changing a lightbulb, and as is often the case, the current jostled some stuff loose in my head. One is something that I think is a quote:

"Look to the sky. Look up... and dread."

Is that familiar to anyone else? Mr Google didn't recognize it.

It sounds like part of Holsteinen's ode, which goes in part:
"...halfway down...though brave we are....angels ne'er tread..."

On second thought, maybe not.

It sounds similar to the final line from The Thing From Another World (1951):

"Watch the skies, everywhere! Keep looking. Keep watching the skies!"


Bwahahahahahahahahaha!!!!!!!!

Yeah, but enough of us are science fiction fans. Dangit, I can't get it out of my head and I can't find it. Maybe it's original?
