Our panoramic picture shows one of the most famous images in world history, the notorious fireball and column of radioactive dust after the bombing of Hiroshima. We also see the Enola Gray which dropped the bomb, and one of the planes carrying scientific instruments to monitor the event. Our viewpoint is that of the observer in the third plane, the photography aircraft.
