Enterprise and other ships of her screen in action during the Battle of Santa Cruz, 26 October 1942. One bomb is exploding off her stern, while two Japanese dive bombers are visible directly above the carrier and towards the centre of the image. A flash from the battleship South Dakota's (BB-57) anti-aircraft guns can be seen in the distance.


The book Guadalcanal: The Definitive Account of the Landmark Battle by Richard B. Frank (1990, Penguin Group), between pages 306 and 307, gives the source of the photo as the "National Archives and Records Administration" which means the image is from the US government. Original works of the US Government are public domain documents.
