The 500-ton TNT explosive charge for Shot "Charlie", second of a series of three test explosions, ready for detonation on the southwestern tip of Kahoolawe Island, Hawaii, April 1965.
USS Atlanta (IX-304) is moored in the background, with her bow facing left. A large SPS-37/SPS-43A type radar antenna is mounted on a pedestal on her foredeck, immediately in front of an ASROC launcher. An SPS-30 type radar antenna is on the pedestal at her extreme bow. Both of these antennas were relocated after the February 1965 Shot "Bravo".
