The phrase "DROP de neutronen BOM" occupies the upper left quarter of the image. Next to the text, a blue and black mushroom cloud rises from smoking buildings. In the lower left quarter, a rocket takes off in front of high orange and yellow flames. The word "PROPHECY" is printed across the bottom of the image in lettering that is increasingly jagged as it moves from left to right.
