The Pentagon has released video footage of the MOAB — “Mother of All Bombs” — as it was dropped by the U.S. military’s C-130 aircraft Thursday, targeting ISIS fortifications in Afghanistan.

It is the world’s largest non-nuclear bomb, and reports indicate at least 36 ISIS fighters were killed in the blast. So far, no civilian casualties have been reported.

The 20-second night-vision video shows the bomb’s detonation in real time.
