This sounds like the testing of the Tallboy bombs in WWII. These were used on various raids. They cynically put the camera right in the middle of the bullseye in one test. The camera was vapourized. Sometimes they do get it right.The weather Bureau here is having a field day, saying the (long range) forecast for the next five days. They are predicting that a cyclone will pass just north of Perth (capital city of Western Australia) on Monday and going by their predictions where I live will get a direct hit by what will be a rain deppression .
Point to consider. When was the last time the weather bureau got a prediction correct?
Guesses for this and the last two centuries only please!
