The first aerial bombs fell on Pearl Harbor at 07:48 a.m. Hawaii time, December 7th, 1941.

But there was an earlier sortie by midget 2-man submarine, and the timing of those is a little murky. The midgets were launched from their mother subs about 01:00 a.m. Hawaii time. At 03:42 a.m. the minesweeper USS Condor sighted a periscope in her wake as she entered the harbor and alerted USS Ward, the destroyer on picket. USS Ward shelled and sank a midget at 06:37 a.m. Some scholars consider that USS Ward's sinking of the midget at 06:37 a.m. constituted the first shot of the war for the United States.
7:55 a.M.
