Peter Birch, from Astronomy West, estimates the meteor was about the size of a basketball.
Every year, thousands of cosmic bodies bombard the Earth's atmosphere, with a few hundred surviving the journey to impact land or sea. Meteorites the size of a basketball strike Earth about once a month, with nearly 75 percent landing in water.

Did anybody locate where the meteorite crashed? It must have left a giant crater. Hopefully it did not land on nobody's head, ouch that would hurt.
On a side note if you plan eating off it, make sure it's not a Boeing bomb. (Joe Dirt reference)
