Nicole R Murphy's "Fate Of Rulers" (flash fiction, free)

It appears to be a take of James Blish's "Surface Tension".

A couple of guys are mystified by strange moving lights above, & wondering if they're aliens-bearing spaceships - till one of these strange things drops down & picks them up...

Great ending (but relatively ordinary main part).
