„Those were dramatic seconds in sheer beauty. The cloud was a pheasant brown with white patches at fi rst. Then it began an amazing transformation in colors and shapes before our eyes. It seemed to steam and boil and churn at the bottom. [...] In less than two minutes it climbed higher than the altitude of our ship „The Voice“. The mushroom broke out suddenly at the top, and the cloud changed colors. It was a fascinating picture.“ (zit. nach: William S. Shurcliff, Operation Crossroads. The Official Pictorial Record, New York 1946, S. 146, Abb. S. 147)
