Exactly 1 year ago today a meteor struck the country of Mexico leaving a 100 foot (30 Meter) crater in the Ahuazotepec Municipality.
You did not hear about this on CNN or FOX News. It was all over the media in South America, but Western media avoided the whole topic.
The explosion was so massive that it broke out windows kilometers away and made building sway. There was another report that the impact either damaged or destroyed a bridge.
This is just the first of 4 major impacts on Earth within a year's time.
There has been loss of life, property damage, and massive craters left behind in the wake.
The most recent asteroid strike was in Allentown Pennsylvania (My Home Town) where it destroyed 5 houses, damaged over 40 homes, left 5 people dead, and caused a huge crater right in the middle of town. Like the San Bruno explosion, this too is being labeled as a natural gas explosion.
They are not lying to you when they say it was a natural gas explosion, as a matter of fact it was. What they are NOT telling you is "what" caused the gas explosion in the first place.
America has over 2.6 million miles of underground gas lines. Any meteor that strikes a populated area is going to rupture and ignite a gas line.
The most massive of them all was the asteroid that struck Colombia on September 5th, 2010 that left a hole in the ground as big as 3 football fields across (300 feet or 90 meters).

THE ASTEROID IMPACT IN COLOMBIA
Around 3:10PM Sunday afternoon residents of Colombia were awestruck when the clear sky was cracked open by a massive fireball that exploded upon impact leaving a 300 foot wide crater and a lot of rattled nerves.
THE ASTEROID IMPACT IN SAN BRUNO, CALIFORNIA
They say it was a ruptured GAS line that caused a massive explosion destroying a small neighborhood. What they don't know is what "Caused" the fuel line to explode. Maybe it had something to do with the giant fireball reported in the news?
Here are some stories about the blast.
Huge Crater can be seen at San Bruno Explosion Site. Notice how all the debris is scattered to one side of the crater.

The raw video below shows the 15-foot crater at 00:58. The video also shows the devastating destruction caused by the explosion and fire in that San Bruno neighborhood.

Also, another big clue is that right before the San Bruno explosion happened, a 1.1 Earthquake happened and it was 0 KM deep and in the same spot. A small impact event would register on as an Earthquake.
|Depth||0 km (~0 mile) (poorly constrained)|
|Region||SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA, CALIFORNIA|
|Location Uncertainty||horizontal +/- 0.3 km (0.2 miles); depth +/- 31.6 km (19.6 miles)|
|Parameters||Nph= 10, Dmin=3 km, Rmss=0.04 sec, Gp= 76°, |
M-type=duration magnitude (Md), Version=D
In this video the event happens at 5 seconds into the video and the fireball happens at 8 seconds. There is a 3 second delay from initial event to the fireball. You can see the shockwave coming out as the video starts and the fireball following at 3 seconds later.
THE ASTEROID IMPACT IN ALLENTOWN, PENNSYLVANIA
Allentown, PA is only about 15 miles from my home town in Pennsylvania where I was born. When I was in my early 20s I used to go "clubbing" just a few blocks from the blast zone.
Notice the huge crater. Gas explosions do not leave massive craters, especially that deep. A person could understand a crater that was a couple feet deep, but, not like the image shows below.
I talked with John Moore, who personally told me that he has witnessed the destruction left by a US made 500LB bomb hitting pavement. He told me that the destruction left behind by a 500LB bomb only leaves a crater about 5 feet deep.
I also talked with Dr. Bill Deagle who was on scene at 2 major gas explosions. He told me that the explosions were bigger than the ones in either San Bruno or Allentown and that they did not leave behind a crater.
The energy from a gas explosion blows upwards and out. As with any energy it will follow the path of least resistance, which in the case of a gas explosion is upward.
The buildings in Allentown, PA are all between 100 and 200 years old. These buildings were built strong and have a thick concrete foundation. The energy "should have" bounced off the ground and radiated upwards if it was just a gas explosion.
Also note that Earth "supposedly" had a near miss at the same time. The same was true for the San Bruno and the Colombia events.
Notes: LD means "Lunar Distance." 1 LD = 384,401 km, the distance between Earth and the Moon.
1 LD also equals 0.00256 AU. MAG is the visual magnitude of the asteroid on the date of closest approach.
