"Infernal Beauty"

There are not many objects culminating in mass destruction that could be referred to as beautiful, but this, for me, is one of them.

Of course to admire the beauty you have to be both protected and some considerable distance away to see skyward ballooning effect of a nuclear blast.

The best ones, in my preference, are those which are detonated above the ground where the fireball can be clearly discerned not-incorporating the dust and earth thrown up by the ground detonations.
