Thank you for posting that video.
I have been watching countless explosions of various types and trying to match what's on the video with anything close. I have yet to find anything
remotely similar. I decided to break down the events and see what kind of figures we get -
From the video you see the first explosion begin at 10:30:33 which doesn't end until 10:33:37 = 4 seconds duration.
The blast wave begins stirring debris at the camera site at 10:33:43 - a full ten seconds after the first flash.
You measured the distance from the camera to the Camp Minden site as being 3 miles.
5,280 x 3 gives us 15,840 feet divided by 10 gives us a speed of 1,584 feet per second for the speed of the shock wave - 1 and 1/2 times the speed of
In the first explosion you can see the light for about 4 seconds, with variations in the intensity of the light.
There is a 6 second window of inactivity before the next event.
In the second explosion we see the same but lasting slightly longer - about 5 seconds.
I mention this because with most single explosions the flash only lasts about 1 or 2 seconds.
Given the variation in the intensity of the light as well as the very long duration I think it's safe to assume we had not only 2 primary explosions
but secondary and possibly tertiary explosions as well.
Make what you will of the above but to me it denotes that there were possibly at least 4 separate explosions, perhaps more which makes the official
explanation of a single munitions bunker exploding extremely unlikely.
