You bet! - 500mm from 5 miles away, near the Cape, but still disconcerting. The Parph was officially closed, but I came round the blindside from Sandwood, not expecting a war zone.

"The prime minister was confirmed saying that 'We have launched a pre-emptive strike on this small outcrop, as we have reliable information it is storing WMD, and as such we took the decision to strike war on terrorism".
You'd think they'd have better things to do than this, wouldn't you?
