Pretty close. When you consider directions and timing.
Did you notice the post earlier. The one listing 233 fireball events in the last month, mostly in the US alone?
They aren't as unusual as you seem to think. Yes the one in Russia was, but not the one seen in California. Not the one in the southeast.
The Russian event happened 16 hours before the close approach of DA14. The meteor came from the opposite side of Earth. Do you really think it was
associated with it? Orbiting it? At a distance of more than 400,000 km? No. Orbital mechanics say no, it could not maintain such an orbit while
orbiting the Sun between the Earth and Venus.
Traveling with it? How does that work when they approach from totally different directions?
