Default Any natural spontaneous explosions in FTB?

So, sometime between the last time I was one (about a week and a half ago) and last night, something big exploded on my plot, not too far from my base. It even breached one of my stairwells down to a branch mine.

The dirt is missing from a fairly large area, most of the redwood tree in the blast site is gone (one of the Biome o' Plenty redwoods, not a Natura one). And a 10 block wide hole was punched through solid rock down about 20-30 blocks.

Any ideas what could have caused this? Are charged creepers that big of an explosions, or did I get hit with a nuke? (Note, there is no evidence of radiation). Did one my my Mooshooms go critical?

Aveege took a look last night and was also confused as to what might have caused it, but I was wondering if there was some FTB addon that maybe triggered a reaction of some sort. If it had been just a little bit closer to my underground base, it would have hit my main storage, and that would have been a disaster.

There isn't signs of anyone actually spending any time in my area since the trees I last planted hadn't grown any, so I don't really think that anyone was involved, either.

Very weird.

Some sort of machine or energy storage that exploded due to overload perhaps? But from what I've seen they usually don't do that much damage to the environment.

Maybe someone has tested a TNT cannon without noticing how far the charge went?

This has happened to me twice as well; the explosion was not in a predictable pattern as expected from a creeper, TNT, nuke or other explosive device.

Can it be a ghast that has gotten through a nether portal? Or perhaps only a stray ghast charge going through and exploding on the other side?

it could be, also could be a charged creeper as mentioned, although Dewey's ones are not usually "random" we all know his love of tnt and nukes lol

Just how big of a hole can a charged creeper make? I've only ever seen one, and didn't go anywhere near it.

Middle of my house blew up overnight. Damage wasn't too bad but a good opportunity to remodel.
