I'm seeing an obvious approach path of an object impact:



Approaching from left, traveling to the right at an angle of about 190 - 210 degrees. You can see the home that was first hit by either the object or the objects pressure wave has major (but minimal) damage [in comparison]. It's upper floor was damaged at an angle that closely matches the angle at which the 2nd home's lower floor walls are still standing to the left and settling lower as you move left to right. The 3rd home has been completely destroyed, but the angle is deeper towards the right. The 4th home has a slight impact crater close to the 5th home. Again the 4th home's foundation appears to have been dug down by the objects impact force at a degree again matching the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd home's. The 5th home has minor damage to the shingling and has been pulled off of it's foundation by the ensuing pressure wave after the object made impact in/near the 3rd home.



Again, this photo shows damage and from this angle you can better see the damage to the 5th home.

This was NOT:

Gas Main - Rare in single home occurrences, extremely rare in two homes at once.

Car Bomb - No damage or visible burn marks to street or driveway. Also, surrounding trees are undamaged, as they would have been burnt if it were a car bomb. Car bomb's are typically incendiary in purpose to cause as much damage as possible [this resembles much more percussion than incendiary.]

House Fire - Debris has been blown out BEFORE the fire (pressure wave) as it's not burnt, but the foundations are burn. This is probably due to the extremely high heat of entry.

Meth Lab? The uniformity between the homes and the lack of damage between them in the grass leads me to not believe this to be the case. Meth lab explosions are typically EXTREMELY caustic and incendiary by proxy.

Bomb and Meth Lab have been officially ruled out...

Well I don't want to start another conspiracy. But it does look indented like something hit there and slid just a tiny bit. There is an indent in your high res photo and you can see it goes into the ground. It's not level in the center of the "Explosion"

As for these pictures being taken after the fact. I say something has been altered while the cleanup was happening.

Just my opinion. No offense to anyone.

I totally agree with you. And the conspiracy will go on until someone higher up says "Indiana was hit by a meteor"


Check this out.



Really weird, If it were an explosion it wouldn't be heart shaped like this. The explosion would be in every direction.

If in fact something hit (Doesn't really look like it traveled much) it makes a lot of sense as to why it's symmetrical and why the debris and houses in BACK of these houses have the siding coming off.

The houses in front of these houses are really not affected and just have some debris on the roof. I mean you can even see vehicles out front across the street.

If a meteor did go down, I would say that with the pictures and such it would make sense. The charred ground would pretty much look the same.

Explosion would have a larger radius and not be heart shaped..

15 mile sonic boom, Shaking houses, sulfur smell.

If they haven't admitted to a gas leak yet, Then it's safe to say if it comes up then it's a cover up. They would of already admitted to a gas leak. And you wouldn't get a shake 15 miles away.
and like I said at the beginning of this thread, If I were to ever experience a meteor strike in my lifetime, my emotions and the feelings I had were as humanly instinctively possible that something very rare, or earth shattering had just happened.

Must be that my sniffer is peculiar or something, but I am in the combustion business, and I don't think that mercaptan smells like rotten eggs. I have smelled methane(fresh made), propane, butane and natural gas when venting lines. My opinion is that is like rotten cabbage and a skunky odor mixed. Hydrogen sulfide is the rotten egg smell and for me is quite different.

I think that there is a possibility that a gas leak was involved, but find it odd that the gas supplier has come out saying that they don't think that was the cause.

it looks like a bowling ball rolled across the houses the outlines are wavy on the side closest to the helicopter.

Regarding earlier questions about copper pipe being used for natural gas, it is not typically used for natural gas.


I've posted this link probably 5 times now but this keeps coming up.

CEG is the company that provides the gas to that area and they tell you flat out, if you're getting natural gas from them and have a leak, it will smell like ROTTEN EGGS


Eggs and Cabbages give off Hydrogen Sulphides when they rot as far as im aware, so your both right... natural gas in these situations smell like rotten cabbages or rotten eggs its like saying toe-may-toe or tom-mar-toe, given the smell is added to the gas afterwards they could damn well make natural gas smell of strawberry and vanilla if they wanted to... the bad smell is simply to alert you to something bad,

Cant believe people are arguing over things like that.

As an aside this thread has been a cracking example of how people can attach such ridiculous theories to something they are reading and see or find evidence for those theories in the stupidest of places... even a modicum of common sense and knowledge would help negate a huge number of these. I mean where still talking about a crater how many pages after it was brought up?.. really a crater in some of those pics, come on are people that stupid?

Sometimes a cigar is just a cigar... and this is pretty much what they said it was. Guess people have to sex it up in their reality for some reason.I mean really? missile strikes, Meteors (come on if a meteor hit those houses and did enough to do that, given we have examples of meteors hitting houses that DONT explode as if struck by a ww2 bomb, it would have been big enough to have done a ton more damage that whats shown in those photos and left one hell of a hole? and that sure as hell isn't the blast pattern from a air burst explosion).

Just my 2 cents..
From looking a the photos from the point of impact, and following what locals (even the OP) have been feeling from the get-go..
I think it could be;
Drone Strike,
Small Meteor,
Falling Space Junk, Satellite, etc..
Small Plane,
Those are all just theory though. The media has been very hush hush from the get go and made it all very interesting.

That's been said numerous times now here. Although no link has been posted to prove it.

If it is being said than it may just be a matter of time until it's found it's way into a linkable story.

Until then....

(and I'm not saying this was or wasn't the result of gas, just that it can't be ruled out either way -yet)

I don't think it was a plane or meteor, considering there is no crater, and the explosion seems to have originated from one house, with blast going in all 3 directions (debris is not scattered as much on sides because the 2 houses immediately on either side were completely destroyed, taking the impact of the explosion). Must have been a huge blast though, 3 and a half homes entirely rubble.

And it is on the news, just search "Indiana" on Google News...

www.newstimes.com...


Deputy Fire Chief Kenny Bacon told reporters Sunday investigators haven't ruled out any possible causes of the late-night blast that was heard miles away. But a congressman who represents the Indianapolis neighborhood says investigators have ruled out a bomb or a meth lab.


A bit contradictory... Have they ruled anything out, or not? If its not a bomb, or methlab, and not an aeroplane, its probably gas.

EDIT: What time was this, only 2 people dead, when three buildings are completely rubble. At least one person was luckily out of his/her home, but usually many people live in one house... Or they were warned?

You are right in that natural gas has no native smell. The reason why I kept posting my link was to alert people to the fact that whatever CEG puts in their natural gas makes it smell like rotten eggs.

Not rotten cabbage (does that smell the same as rotten eggs???), not rotten deer meat, not burnt toast, not a post burrito binge fart. *rotten eggs

So people can stop speculating about this smell or that smell. It's right there on their website.

With regards to craters, I agree. I don't see any evidence of that at all... I think the houses that blew apart piled up on either side of the houses adjacent to them causing the scene to appear to have a "dent in the middle"

For those who missed it - back on page 19 - ATS member baddmove showed us that the bomb and meth lab ideas were ruled out. www.abovetopsecret.com...

He gave this link www.chicagotribune.com... which tells us:


.S. Rep. Andre Carson, D-Ind., who represents the area, said he went to the church where the new donation headquarters is and area Homeland Security officials told him a bomb and a meth lab have been ruled out as causes.


There is also this link news.msn.com... which says the same thing briefly:


But a congressman who represents the Indianapolis neighborhood says investigators have ruled out a bomb or a meth lab.


and adds a new number of up to 31 homes destroyed or damaged so badly they may have to be demolished.

The pics are insane!

I just don't think a car bomb would have blown the siding off of houses at such a distance and I don't think a gas leak would have been heard and felt so far away.

Drones strike? That's just absurd. .

Meteorite? Maybe...

As someone living in Indy, let me assure you the local news stations are covering this....they're eating it up. It's been nonstop since this morning.

The speculation of a terrorist attack, or car bomb (as someone stated earlier) is laughable. To anyone familiar with the area, it's not particularly high profile.

Things I thought were odd from this:

1) Nobody smelled any gas. A guy from Citizens (local gas company) came on and stated that there is no odorless gas used in Marion county, somebody would have noticed the smell.

2) The interview with the Fire Chief was odd this morning. He was very apprehensive toward answering any questions about a cause (may be SOP, not sure). I think he did state that ATF would be brought in to further investigate.

3) The Red Cross here asked people to stop dropping off food and supplies, stating they just wanted money to be donated online (again, not sure if this is SOP).

4) The ENTIRE subdivision has been vacated. The police seemed especially pleased with the fact that the subdivision only has one route in and out. They have stated multiple times how this has eased efforts of security.

Yep, 31 they say on that one website. 31 homes where people will most likely have to bulldoze the remains, rather than just patch stuff.

Not MY figures. I've seen the pics all day. Their figures.
