I guess it must have been impressive... if you were there for real.

I guess 2 miles or 3 km afar, counting from vision to sound, like we measure distance of lightning. But even that is not comforting.

Interesting, the difference from the "flash" and the "thunder" was 10s.

Speed of light: 300,000,000 m/s
Speed of sound: 343 m/s

d.istance = v.elocity * t.ime;

So, the distance should be calculated by using the time it took to hear the blast - time it took to see the blast . Luckyly for us the speed of light is so fast for small distance that we can calculate only using the speed of sound. Thus d = 343 * 10.

d = 3,430m

The observers were that far away.

#3 is that the speed of light in a vacuum?

#9 Yes - but the other worms that launched the attack are probably very pleased with themselves!

#15 , yup, actually it is an aproximation, actual speed by wikipedia is said to be around 299,792,458 m/s.

In air (again aproximating because air means a load of things) the speed only varies by the second decimal, and only by one unit so it's about 2,98... * 10^8 m/s. Taking in consideration I dind't even use it, the change is meaningless

There blowing up the chemical weapons bunkers in the Umitilla Pendleton area, as the U.S. government has just finished disposing of the last of the weapons that were stored there. Its in washington, oregon boarder. Good riddance, didnt look very pretty when viewed from the Highway anyhow, lol.

By the looks of those white smoke trails I think some "Willie Pete" was being used to get the temp up high enough to destroy the chemicals.
Cool video.

All you have to do is watch the explosion and the amount of seconds it takes to hear the explosion = miles of how far it is..... just like thunder, in this case.... 9/10 miles =)

Nuclear explosion? If so they're way too close.
Beautiful explosion though!
