Trinity in color

Photo by Jack Aeby; courtesy Los Alamos Historical Society.
The only color photograph of the Trinity test. It’s been used numerous places, including the cover of Richard Rhodes’ famous The Making of the Atomic Bomb. Often it’s inexplicably flipped left-to-right; I am pretty sure the above orientation is correct.

Prints of this photo are for sale from the Historical Society.
