Re: A nuke just went off near Buffalo, NY...

So a nuke didn't really really go off? You might want to change the title so that you don't drive fear into members who have family living in that area. Not really a cool thing to joke about.

Yea I thought you were one step ahead of the news service, you might want to change that thread title :tsk:

EDIT That's cool, you had me worried with the first one :crackup:

It is a pretty cool picture you took with a phone and a red lens :gj:

FYI

There is no way in hell a nuke will ever go off here. A dirty bomb, maybe. Even then its highly unlikely.

You give these clowns to much credit.

Cool pic LeQuack!

Here's something similar I shot of our friendly local thermonuclear reaction in Destin Fl. a few years ago:

I got one also of the very same thermonuclear reaction only I was standing on top of Prairie Mt. when I snapped the
shutter.
I was approx 50 miles from the ocean and you really can not see it from here until the sun gets to the horizon and
then you can see a gold band on the earth, it's beautiful and you can only see it from right here !

At that (perceived) distance... yah, but at least you'll go quickly. Payload of course determines safe distances, but most of the destruction is from the shockwave and not the EMR blast (flash), though the IR is enough to fry you crispy if the Gamma burst doesn't make you a member of the walking dead club first.

There are distances where you can still see the blast/flash but be out of the gamma burst and IR toaster zones though...

While I love to see things with my own eyes... this is one of those cases where I think I'd rather just watch it on tv:p
