The US Navy has released a jaw-dropping video that shows the moment a bomb exploded in the middle of the ocean, triggering an earthquake 100 miles away.

The footage shows the 40,000lb bomb exploding in "full ship shock trials" where they are testing the effects such a device has on Navy ships.

The explosion caused a 3.9 magnitude earthquake roughly 100 miles away in Daytona Beach, Florida, a phenomenon that is not unusual during such trials. The experimental explosion that happened on Friday isn't unusual either.

The explosion was conducted underwater, with a Navy ship being above water. The trials will show how durable the ship is to bombs and how effective they will be in battle.
