    Thanks for the interesting links Bill.
    Now I want to go see the Turkenistan crater - who's in?

        Check out the lit methane seeping out of a city street in the 2018 Hawaii volcanic eruption. Seems that lava buries plants and shrubs and produces the methane:

          A couple of other naturally occurring methane sources - a hillside in Azerbain and the extraction of ocean floor nodules by the Japanese:

            Phil Plait for syfy.com Dec 1 2020 - Huge methane lakes on Saturn's moon Titan

            The Cassini mission orbited Saturn for 13 years sending back incredible images. No list of Cassini's top scientific discoveries would be complete without talking about the discovery of lakes of liquid methane on Titan, one of Saturn's many moons. Titan is a world-sized moon, bigger than Mercury, with a nitrogen atmosphere so dense the pressure at the surface is 50% more than Earth's.

            Huge lakes, some the size of the Great Lakes in North America, had been predicted to exist complete with tributaries feeding them coming off the surrounding hills. And Kraken Mare, the largest, is 5 times larger than Lake Superior by area. Methane, which is a gas on Earth, can be either gaseous, liquid, or solid and behaves on Titan like the water cycle on Earth.
