The First Bomb at Bikini
Charles Bittinger
Accession Number: 95-129-C
Original work: Painting, Oil on Canvas
Original size: 26 by 32 inches

Captured at the peak of formation, this painting illustrates the classic mushroom cloud shape. The pink color of the cloud is due to the oxidation of nitrogen caused by high heat and radiation from the explosion. The rapidly cooling fireball is the cause of the red glow seen deep within the cloud. The blast wave created the massive waves and steam that engulfed the target fleet at the bottom.
