Missile tube test aboard USS Kamehameha (SSBN-642). Nice public affairs photos. They date back to August 1965 and were taken from the Vallejo side of the channel.
Can't tell you much about these tests, i.e. why the different colors; how did they pressurize the missile tube, what was the yard measuring, etc.

USN:

On 22 November, Santa Fe's task group sortied once again for attacks on Japanese positions in the Philippines, which began three days later. They remained in action off the Philippines until 1 December, when they departed for another period of rest and replenishment at Ulithi.

By mid-month, they had joined the forces supporting the landing on Mindoro. On 18 and 19 December, Typhoon Cobra struck the fleet, sinking destroyers USS Hull, the USS Monaghan, and the USS Spence - low on fuel and thus with less ballast than the rest of the ships, these three destroyers would be stormlost, along with 790 of their crew, after meteorological failures on the part of the US staff led to Admiral Halsey leading TF-38 right into the teeth of a Category 4 typhoon. Santa Fe and other vessels searched for survivors before returning to Ulithi on 24 December.
