A black-and-white photograph of a large explostion off the coast of Kaho'olawe Island. The explosion is in the distance towards the right of the frame and there is a US battleship in the water to the left that is dwarfed by the size of the fireball.

Operation Sailor Heat, in 1965, included three 500-ton TNT explosions off the coast of Kaho’olawe Island. This image is the test shot, otherwise known as “Bravo,” from February 6, 1965. [Wikimedia Commons]
