2. From Space Weather News (http://spaceweather.com):
"The meteoroid entered the atmosphere just as asteroid 2012 DA14 was approaching Earth for a record-setting close approach later in the day.
"However, NASA says there is no connection between the two: the Russian meteor and 2012 DA14 have different trajectories. A cosmic coincidence? Visit http://spaceweather.com for more information and updates."
