Their planet is dying or something and they all go in different directions, and he crash lands on earth on a farm I think. His ship is about the size of a bowling ball to us and he's the size of an insect. He's exploring the area when a human picks him up, and he uses his laser on the human but the human just thinks its a bug bite and squashes him. I can't remember the title and I thought it was Asimov but now I'm not sure and it's driving me crazy!

  • I think it was like he was writing in a captains log sort of thing. It was a paperback, I can't remember if it was the first story of the collection but I think it was more in the middle of the book, and I thought they were all the same author but now I'm not sure. I really thought it was Asimov but I can't find it anywhere – Kyla Aug 14 '16 at 17:26

I figured it out!! It was "Meteor" by John Wyndham, in the short story collection The Seeds of Time. Yay!!
