This video is amazing. The size of that explosion to me looks MASSIVE. I dont like it when people draw comparisons from explosion to how many tons of tnt represent that explosion. To be honest I have no clue what a ton of tnt exploding looks like..

To me it doesn't look like 4 tons is really that powerful to be seen that bright from space but I dont have much experience understanding explosions. I know the human eye can see a lighter up to 8 miles away in pitch dark. Here is an example of 500 tons of TNT being exploded to simulate an atomic bomb. so 4 tons? hmmm
