A photographer with the Weather Channel was all set to capture Monday's implosion of the Georgia Dome.

It only took 15 seconds for the former home of the Atlanta Falcons in the National Football League, is reduced to dust. The demolition took 4,800lbs of explosives, including about 4,500lbs of dynamite, according to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

If one college team is disappointed to see the Dome go, it has to be Alabama.

The Georgia Dome has been replaced in the last few months by the Mercredes Benz Stadium, which is located just next to the old site.

Several streets and parts of Atlantas transit system were closed, police said, to accommodate the blast and spectators. The decision to build a new stadium wasn't surprising, being the way of the sports world now, but the Georgia Dome was still a more than functional stadium that had been renovated fairly recently.

It also was the site of gymnastic events during the 1996 games, when Kerri Strug famously vaulted with two torn ligaments in her ankle to help the US beat Russian Federation for the gold medal in team gymnastics.
