The Coming - Joe Haldeman

A university astronomer detects a signal from space that announces aliens will arrive for a New Year's party.

Trying to stop them = very bad, as them blowing a piece out of one of the moons of Mars, shows.

This diverts attention somewhat from the climate problems and the verging towards war state of Europe and the USA.

The story is told through a lot of vignettes from many, many different characters, as they wonder if it is real or not.
