Brighter than Thirty two Suns

Below I called the missing 377 tons of RDX and HMX small potatoes. Then I did a calculation.
RDX and HMX are 1.7 times as powerful as TNT so 377 is equivalent to 640.9 tons of TNT. The Hiroshima bomb was 20 kilotons so the missing explosives would make a blast brighter than 32 suns.
