  1. The water displacement is what is most amazing to me. They estimated two million tons of water in this blast. The dark spot at the bottom right of the water funnel many thought to be the upended Battleship Arkansas.

  2. I upgraded the photo to a higher resolution. If you look closely at the water column it could be a battle ship indeed!
