Starfish Prime was a high-altitude nuclear test conducted by the United States on 9 July 1962 as part of Operation Fishbowl over Johnston Atoll. It was successfully detonated at an altitude of 400 km (250 mi) at 09:00:09 Honolulu time.

Starfish Prime’s electromagnetic pulse was much larger than originally expected and drove much of the instrumentation off scale, as well as causing electrical damage in Hawaii, which was about 1,445 km (898 mi) away from the detonation point. It knocked out about 300 streetlights, set off numerous burglar alarms and damaged a telephone company microwave link.
