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.
