NO I am not talking about Utah

Before this week, military officials confirmed that the Air Force had been developing a large conventional bomb but offered few details. On Tuesday, however, the Pentagon revealed that the first live test of MOAB occurred at 1 p.m. at Eglin Air Force Base.
"It looked like a white mushroom cloud, almost like cotton or smoke you'd see from a fire, kind of billowy," said base spokeswoman Karen Roganov, who watched from a rooftop 30 miles away.
But MOAB might not be the largest conventional weapon in the arsenal for long. A 30,000-pound weapon called Big BLU (Bomb Live Unit) is being developed and might be available for use in Iraq.
