Sedan Plowshare Crater - July 1962

Storax Sedan (yield 104 kt) - the explosion created a crater 98 meters (320 feet) deep and 390 meters (1,280 feet) wide by displacing 12 million tons of soil. (Look to the size of the roads in the bottom-right of the picture, and the observation deck at the lower-right edge of the crater, for a sense of scale)
