The Associated Press is reporting that a huge explosion occurred on Friday that rattled Tehran and lit up the horizon. The site of the blast was a region where many nuclear experts believe Iran conducted high-explosive tests relating to its nuclear program.
The explosion happened in the Alborz mountains, just east of the city. Satellite photos show the massive extent of the blast.

Satellite photos of the area, some 20 kilometers (12.5 miles) east of downtown Tehran, showed hundreds of meters (yards) of charred scrubland not seen in images of the area taken in the weeks ahead of the incident. The building near the char marks resembled the facility seen in the state TV footage.
The gas storage area sits near what analysts describe as Iran’s Khojir missile facility. The explosion appears to have struck a facility for the Shahid Bakeri Industrial Group, which makes solid-propellant rockets, said Fabian Hinz, a researcher at the James Martin Center for Nonproliferation Studies at the Middlebury Institute of International Studies in Monterey, California.
The footage on Iranian TV shows charred gas canisters and not much else.

FOX NEWS REPORTS:
The project to actively pursue production of nuclear warheads is conducted in Khojir by the Hemmat Missile Industries Group, the report notes. Due to the extreme sensitivity of manufacturing nuclear warheads, Nouri Industry has its own security and military police; individuals who have clearance to other parts of Khojir site are not allowed to go to this section.
Intelligence findings also reveal that scores of large underground tunnels have been constructed in this military complex, this providing the possibility and flexibility of covering up the activities of the warhead project, or transferring it to a different location in the complex. Furthermore, the Iranian Resistance states that North Korean experts cooperate with the regimes experts in the project, and have been particularly helpful in designing the aerodynamics aspects, the shape of the warhead, and have also provided the design for the Hemmat site, its tunnels, and underground centers.
Just another tragic natural gas leak.
Let me guess: Mossad had a hand in its destruction.
Achmed fall down go boom!...............
‘I thought it was your turn to check the pressure cooker.
Now, what are we gonna do for lunch?”
Mossad denies knowledge of the explosion that happened today and the explosion that will happen next week. Furthermore, they said they are not aware of any country called Iran.
Oh, mother, dont be so sentimental. Things explode every day.
Or was it a successful test?
Rods from God aka kinetic weapon?
Everything but the timer.
