From Halopedia, the Halo wiki

Eirene was a human colony world glassed by the Covenant during the Human-Covenant War some time before 2537.[Note 1] It was the homeworld of the SPARTAN-III supersoldier Jonah-B283, whose entire family was killed in the glassing, making him one of the hundreds of war orphans conscripted into the program.[1] At some point during the Covenant's assault on the world, SPARTAN-II Kelly-087 triggered a reactor breach that led to a 50 megaton blast towards a Covenant forward operating base, as part of Operation: PALE SHADOW. The destruction of the base allowed the city of New Kona to temporarily survive the battle.[2]
