The Chernobyl disaster happened in April of 1986. The people who lived in that region of the Ukraine believed that the apocalypse was happening because of a number of coincidences with the Book of Revelations. When the reactor blew it launched a fireball into the reservoir. In the Book of Revelations, a star falls into the waters and  and poisons them. The name of the star was Wormwood. The photo doesn’t capture it, but the dome on the building and its reflection in the water are  depicted in gold leaf.
