Explosion in West caused by missile?

the evidence on this one is pretty damn compelling...

I've seen all those videos and actually saw them almost immediately after they were uploaded.

The woman that said it was a plane was driving around with her husband for 15 min trying to get close to the scene and the only thing they 'thought' it could be was a plane. Of course they were wrong.

The one with the audio sounding like a missile has been altered/enhanced to sound that way. the original does not.

And while I didnt see it on this page, there is a video that suggests that the light flare from the left of the camera is actually a missile coming in. This is flawed!

The videos were all shot with low rez camera phones with slow shutters (1/30sec). The light flare from the right is due to the explosion happening between frames. In fact, as I have pointed out to another blogger, the flare can not only be seen 'coming from the left' i the distance (near the factory) but also the orange flare seems to be in front of the metal garbage can right near the camera.

Why? Because the white flare that completely overloads the camera's sensor happens inbetween frames at 1/30 sec. As a result it only colorizes that portion of the sensor before the very next frame (the next 1/30th sec) is completely white out.
Really not all that mysterious considering what the video was shot with.

I like a good 'spiracy as much as the next guy, but this one has gotten way too much coverage for something so easily explained and sprinkled with edited video/audio to try and sell it.

Definitely not TEXMEX. For sure Southern California Mexican. No knives and guns involved.
