Looking at how large an area a blast is, is there a way to accurately determine
how much TNT must've been needed to create it? If you see something that takes
out an area the size of the tri-state area of Michigan, Indiana and Ohio, how
big a blast would that be. How big a blast would it take to be seen from high
orbit of the planet Earth?
