I have a 2MB pic that I can't seem to upload
open it up in Paint(or whatever you use to display on screen) and then do a screen capture [prtscn]... then paste it into a new Paint _.. save as jpg... then it won't be 2 mb.edit on 9.26.2013 by Zarniwoop because: (no reason given)

I truly think it's more people looking up, with reporting boosted by the Internet.
... which is very cool.

Agreed after the Russian meteor people seem to be looking up to the sky more.
Living out in the desert my wife and I see a decent amount of meteors all the time.
Here is a couple of good sites to bookmark
G7IZU Radio Reflection Detection
Shows meteors as they enter the atmosphere, I am not sure however what the different Hz (28 - 144) sizes mean in relation to size of the object. You can choose the location at the top for US, UK, Transatlantic, Africa All, and Far East and Oceania.
Shows meteors as they enter the atmosphere by size only, not sure how far the detection is able to reach.
NASA's All Sky Fireball Network
Actual captures of fireballs from various cameras from different locations in the USA
Maybe someone with more knowledge in this area could shed some light in interpretation of both tools?
American Meteor Society

Is a Meteor Storm Brewing for May 2014??
On May 24, 2014, Earth will plow through a dense stream of dust particles shed by Comet 209P/LINEAR. Dynamicists think the crossing could result in an intense meteor shower - maybe even a "storm" - and North Americans will have front-row seats.
The old-time Perseus meteor shower is associated with the comet Swift-Tuttle, and radiate from the Perseus constellation. They have been observed for around two thousand years, from mid-July to mid-August.
However, the new-comer September Epsilon Perseids meteor shower was only discovered a few years ago. It is unknown what body they originate from, other than they come from somewhere within the Oort cloud.
In September 2013, European sky watchers are reporting seeing meteors from the September Epsilon Perseids.

More reports does not equal more meteors.
Phys.org It is interesting to note that the September Perseids produced a similar outburst in 2008. This might indicate that the parent comet is now approaching the inner solar system. If so, these outbursts provide advance warning of bodies that intersect the orbit of the Earth and can potentially hit it with little or no warning. Observations of this mid-September meteor shower in the coming years, combined with direct telescopic searches for the parent comet, will help determine if this is the case.
