Answer:

All flash, no boom.

Explanation:

You would see the exploded material that's hot enough to glow visibly. It would spread out symmetrically in all directions through space.

But you would hear nothing, because sound can not travel through space. Also the familiar mushroom cloud is not there; like the sound that requires an atmosphere.
