Disappearing Go g e?

You may have seen that Google has a crop-circle theme today, with a hovering UFO. The "l" is missing (even from the name of the image-file). A while ago, an "o" was kidnapped by a very similar UFO. Do the artists at Google know something we don't...? What letter is next?

Oooo! Oooo! I figured this one out!

When they changed the picture over, their Twitter status was updated to the coordinates "51.327629, -0.5616088." If you pull up those coordinates on Google Maps, it is centered on the name Horsell. Woking is where the narrator lived in War of the Worlds, and Horsell Commons is where the first cylinder landed. KAPOW!!! No idea what significance it has to the date, though.

Oh, and the last one is believed to be a reference to Zero Wing, due to this Twitter status that translates (a=1, b=2) to "all your o are belong to us."

aHA! H.G. Wells was born September 21, 1866, and Zero Wing was released September 21, 1989! So, the next question is, why does Google have advance knowledge of an alien invasion next Monday?
Ha ha ha, I think I love you. :P
Kieth owes me $5.
Your comment in fact made me laugh loudly to myself... He owes you five?? I owe him twenty....
Er...should I be worried that ya'll are placing bets on who does or does not garner my affection?
Apparently I don't have to.
Neah, just demand 10%
HAHA
and I was RIGHT.
You WERE.
