And the bizarre part is it is still unexplained!

I mean seriously, check this out- there have been investigations done by TV stations into the most probable causes, and all come up empty, leaving the most likely cause a fireball explosion, like what happened in Russia.

I have two links on this:
www.ksla.com...-lbg.reddit


SHREVEPORT, LA (KSLA) - The National Weather Service in Shreveport says they picked up a debris field on radar Monday afternoon at the same time many people around the ArkLaTex reported hearing a loud boom.

According to Senior Forecaster Marty Mayeaux, the radar image appears similar to the debris field that was seen as a result of the explosion at Camp Minden in October 2012. Only this time, it appeared to originate in an area south of Wallace Lake in extreme northern DeSoto Parish, east of I-49.

Mayeaux says it showed debris was indicated rising 1,000 to 1,500 feet into the air, and that it drifted eastward toward Bienville Parish.

There was no precipitation in the area at the time, as the storms that moved through Monday were well into eastern Louisiana by 4:30 in the afternoon.


More at link- and-

www.inquisitr.com...


At about 4:27 P.M. local time on Monday, residents of the area colloquially known as ArkLaTex (that is, the region that includes Northwest Louisiana, Southwest Arkansas, and Northeast Texas) were jolted by a loud boom, that according to some reports shook the ground, according to WLOX (Biloxi). One area resident said the boom was so loud, she thought her house might collapse.

“My couch came up off the floor a little bit, my back wall felt like it was going to cave in, it was so loud!”


Now a sonic boom usually won't do damage to quite that extent, and besides, sonic booms don't leave debris fields to 1,500 feet. That debris field was on radar. Read the links.

Not a quake, they checked. Not a military issue, not an explosion on the ground from anywhere. Weird!

All these fireball events have really got me thinking about a thread I posted a month or two ago, that ended up in the hoax bin about how we are supposed to get a massive increase in fireballs, meteors, and even asteroids coming our way in the next five to ten years. This keeps up and they may have to promptly UNHOAX that sukka!


Now if that was indeed a fireball that caused that havoc, then something is off. Cause we are only supposed to get those that size like once every 100 years or so- and the Russia one happened, so... Why is this one happening so soon? I think we need to pay attention to the sky folks. Things might be getting serious up there- we could be in for a bombardment.

Dear fireball Gods, could you please have one each strike down all the bad people? Thanks.

Signed,
We The Abused.

I have not heard about this, but now I am as curious as you. I (naturally being a CT) generally feel like answers are known many times, but are not released to the general public for whatever reason. You would think if it was a fireball that size (comparable to the one in Russia) that somebody would have seen it and reported it, but stranger things have happened.

Hopefully some of the ATS sleuths can throw around some ideas. But you aren't alone in having heard that activity was supposed to pick up. I heard the same thing, though I can't recall exactly where I read/heard it. I don't know if it's based in fact or not, but I did hear it. One would think that it would pick up on occasion just out of numbers, but again... I am no rocket burger flipper.



I will stay tuned for more educated folks to discuss.

Interesting. Wouldn't the radar pick up a fireball though? NASA tracks fireballs too, I wonder if there would be evidence there of a fireball? S&F

I read an article a while back from a retired NASA scientist who said that the solar system would be passing through some small debris on it's trek around the solar system. The stuff was not supposed to be much bigger than a basketball at most though.

yes, here is from that thread I was talking about:

ASTEROIDS could rain down on the earth for 100 years, shocked experts have just warned.

A previously unknown asteroid belt has been located in deep space and is now hurtling towards our part of the solar system.

It means a 'global killer' could collide with Earth as soon as 2020, wiping out life as we know it and changing the climate for millennia.

The terrifying predictions came as NASA revealed disturbing new data showing 400 impacts are expected between 2017 and 2113, based on new observational data of objects seen in space over the past 60 days.

Most will have a maximum diameter of around 100 metres - the size of seven double decker buses - and the potential to cause significant damage.

But concerned scientists warned a colossal "monster" is also heading our way, with one 'mega' asteroid threatening earth in just SIX years.p

I was hoaxered, and on top of that got a letter from a mod that... oh nvmd. I hate it when I post hoaxes (unknowingly, of course- has happened a few times over my ten years here.)

Would be nice to be vindicated

They leave out little hints but I think they are covering things up. Something is out there and they don;t want massive civil unrest. Sure there will be damage, but that doesn't mean that chaos has to take over the world.

Werner Von Braun stated that the meteor threat would arise after the terrorist threat had been and gone......

They can say whatever they want about whats out there in space (i.e. debris fields or meteor clouds), we (the average person) cannot see it to verify.

they could have satellites throwing stones at the earth for all we know and saying they are meteors.

A "Debris Field" is not consistent with an airburst bolide, but certainly would be if it struck the ground.
Seeing that there is no hole, it is a mystery indeed.

Mayeaux says it showed debris was indicated rising 1,000 to 1,500 feet into the air, and that it drifted eastward toward Bienville Parish.

How would an exploding meteorite look like 'debris rising 1k to 1.5K feet into the air' and then drifting?

Could it have been mostly ice and the incoming stresses turned it into a cloud after it blew up?

While this video is inaccurate in many respects, it is still pretty neat and the music is wonderful; we're going through new space all the time, so every second of every minute of every hour, day, year is brand new space for us to be passing through; it's a wonder we don't run into some very large debris out there more often:

That really would justify recent announcements from multiple nations about preparing a militarized space force to deal with threats just like this one.

I think they are on the increase said so two year ago
My skycam been up and running for two year now
I have a 500 Gb hard drive full of meteor vid
So by what i have seen they on the increase and bigger on the average
Here my last Fire Ball

Would this be anywhere close to where an earthquake swarm happend some time ago?

Could it have been a huge bubble of methane gas which exploded? Are there any lakes in that area which could have produced such a bubble?

The salt caverns of Lousiana are supposed to be capable of containing gas and used for gas and oil storage and on the Bayou Corne sinkhole thread there are reports of methane seeping up from underground and under people's houses.

I live in south Shreveport and heard it. Pretty sure it was a sonic boom from something. There was nothing in the sky to lead me to believe it was a meteorite, but that would have been cool. I'm sure one of the fighters (or something else) from the local air force base accidentally broke the barrier and they just haven't fessed up to it yet.

Lol, well get em to fess up to leaving a debris field 1,500 feet in the air, too! That's the problem with why this was not likely a sonic boom. Have you checked out the articles linked in the OP?

Okay this must be a first...

Brand new 'UFO' ( a meteor can be a UFO ) thread, and after 24 hours there's only 1 page...

I take this as one of two signs.

1. Nobody has any idea what it was and we're waiting for an explanation.
2. Nobody has any idea what it was and we're waiting for a cover-up...

The lack of information on this, after 24 hours, is particularly unsettling.

I don't know all of the acronyms I'm looking for or where to go examine their data - but I wonder what the folks that monitor inbound objects detected at this time... Anyone?

I can really see this as being one of a few things:

- Let's do the fun stuff first
1. Aliens inbound from space
2. Aliens coming out of the ground, I.E. War of the Worlds ( Lel )
- That was fun right?
3. Inbound meteor/'fireball[?]'
4. Fracking gas buildup detonation? Mother Terra just farted.
5. Aaaaaaaliens.
6. Man-made craft breaking up on re-entry.

So like really 4 options, as far as I see.

Any takers on any of those? The fracking theory has me pretty riveted right now...

I have some qualms with the theory of an inbound meteor - as the [dopler?] image in the article does not appear to have any natural formation to it. Granted; pieces of something that big inbound at high speed would split into some pretty random chunks; but I also feel like even if that's the case, it would maintain a little closer grouping.

I have some qualms with my own fracking theory, on account of the fact that this sort of an explosion would generate a very natural circle around the site.

I have qualms with my aaaaaliens theory, like... the lack of proof, but that doesn't necessarily negate the potential that this was some sort of spacecraft - man-made even - breaking up on reentry. This might explain the wide spread of this... debris... and the lack of a natural pattern.

I'm really curious what kind of 'debris' we're talking about here - for them to pick it up, it must have been significant. I'll be excited if anyone in that area starts finding this stuff wherever it landed.

Is there any way we can see the data that the national weather service was actually getting? What was the largest object? What was the progression of the breakup?

Hope we hear some more about this in the coming days... Or hours....

Cool stuff. S&F&

Has there been any follow-up or clarification on this story? Or has anyone involved on the ground been slapped with a "National Security directive"?

Okay TA, you got my curiosity sparked.

Anymore news on this? I did a little search and didn't come up with anything. Anyone know how close the debris field is to the military installation? I would think, that if there is a history similar to this, that would be the most likely cause. A test gone bad? Experimental plane crash? Something that will NOT be in the news.
