Passage

The entire area was suddenly brighter than the brightest daylight and the bomb was like a ball of fire. Then, came the tremendous roar and the heavy pressure wave, which knocked down two men outside the control Centre and then came the cloud-the mushroom cloud, all the colours of the rainbow, ironically beautiful, surging up to our 40000 feet over 10000 feet higher than the Everest.
