    How about Joe Haldeman's The Coming?

    I think this could make a good movie ... aliens, porno stars, realistic astronomers, realistic university administrators ... and set in a real college town.

    Yes (affectionally known as Hogtown). Many familiar locations for those who know Gainesville. Its set in a mythical astrophysics department rather than in the astronomy or physics departments but I would swear that I recognize some of my colleagues.
