So here are my questions...is it because of more people reporting them?

That would be a logical explanation.
Tell me, have you personally seen a dramatic increase in meteors? I haven't.

Well, personally I haven't seen one.


That is why I find that the OP is one lucky person...
I wish I did.

I've seen a lot of meteors.

I've seen one very large fireball. But I'm just one set of eyes and I was in one location and I happened to be looking in the right direction (it was low on the horizon).

Not like they are looking for meteors that size anyway:

Russian Fireball Won't Be Last Surprise Asteroid Attack


The world will have to live with surprise asteroid attacks on the scale of Friday's Russian fireball, at least for a while.

The meteor that exploded over the Russian city of Chelyabinsk without warning Friday (Feb. 15), damaging hundreds of buildings and wounding more than 1,000 people, was caused by a space rock about 50 feet (15 meters) wide, researchers said.

Asteroids of this size are both difficult to detect and incredibly numerous, so it will take a long time for astronomers to find and map out the orbits of all the potentially dangerous ones. Besides, researchers have bigger fish to fry.

"Defending the Earth against tiny asteroids such as the one that passed over Siberia and impacted there is a challenging issue that is something that is not currently our goal,"

That's good for you Phage, I have seen a shooting star myself, but not one that goes fireball. For a person who is knowledgeable in this field, you have a high chance of seeing this than your average person, who gets surprised with not just one but two fireballs appearing minutes of each other?

Must be a normal thing for you I guess?

Peace

No higher chance than anyone who spends the same amount of time outside at night.

Not normal for me. No.
Like I said, I've seen one which I would consider a fireball.

It seems a lot of people in Florida saw it.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.

I've seen them pretty frequently here in Florida, maybe because the we are close to sea level and the equator, between large bodies of ocean, with little in the way of high altitude terrain to obscure the horizon. Over the years I've seen about a dozen or so in all sorts of colors:yellow, red, blue, green, and mostly white. Its most common to see them around the time that we are approaching a meteor shower.

As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

Is it official that we are approaching a meteor shower, any links?
The last I heard, we were expecting 1 flyby at this point?

Peace

I've seen one true, big-arse fireball in my years... by just looking up.

I give a hearty cheers to the ISS when it passes overhead on a clear night.

I wish there was some way to predict fireballs.

As for all these recent sightings... just a lot more people looking up... which is good.

I've seen 2 fireballs in my lifetime , one was watching a meteor shower and let me tell you , that one looked as if it was coming straight for meand like a 3d movie and like it was going to hit me,lol.
The second one was more of a side view while I was driving to work one night about 13 years ago , both were awesome to watch.

I try to watch every meteor shower that we have , love the night sky

It seems obvious that the bunkers and such have the utility of being available on a very short-term notice. This corresponds with the requirements for continuity of government, human life, etc, in case of asteroid impact....on short notice.

It would be almost irresponsible not to prepare a basic system to cope with this type of epic disaster.

Why would anyone prepare to cope with threads about meteors?

So do a lot of people. But it isn't.
377 in the US this year.

Interesting site. Going back to 2005, we have this progression in meteor sightings:

463 Events found in 2005
517 Events found in 2006
588 Events found in 2007
726 Events found in 2008
694 Events found in 2009
951 Events found in 2010
1628 Events found in 2011
2220 Events found in 2012

And 377 Events found in 2013, and 2865 by years end (we are 48 days into the year, with is 13.15% of the year. If this rate continues, it will reach about ~2865 meteors by the end of the year.)

Sorry to burst your bubble but those stats are suppose to mean what?

These are reported events are they not?

How many unreported events happened? Do you know?

I like the title of the video...
In french, Teton means nipple
(and I suppose I don't need to translate "Grand")
