Astronomers discover a comet that they believe will crash into Phoenix, Arizona. They attempt to warn officials, but no one believes them.
The TV station in the movie, KTAR-TV, is the real life NBC affiliate for Phoenix, now known as KPNX.

During the comet strike, the Hyatt Regency Hotel (with its distinctive Compass Room revolving restaurant on the roof) can be seen crumbling from the shock wave. As the credits begin, the smoldering cityscape is shown (something about the Phoenix will rise from the ashes)...with the hotel virtually unscathed.
In the movie's premiere telecast, the sequence showing the impact and results lasted 4 minutes. In subsequent airings, the sequence was shortened to 2 minutes.
