A question



In films of nuclear tests, you typically see these cloud formations that appear a split second after the bomb explodes. What's causing this? My initial hunch is something about a sudden increase in temperature in the air above and around the bomb. In some videos you see these long stringy ribbon like clouds from the air (it can't be debris because the mushroom cloud is not even completely formed). Thanks!
