RE: So it's bigger than other things of its size?

I'm guessing the reporter meant to say largest object of its kind.

If you are offended by the things I say, imagine the stuff I hold back.

* No chance of impact, scientists say

Is this the one that blew up over Russia?

No, it was not. I guess you could call this a 'Galactic Coiencidence' (sounds like the title of some Sci-fi book or movie).

dgallup…

The two biggies (the big boom over Russia and the close-but-not-to-worry flyby of 2012 DA14) were from different directions. The former was traveling east to west and the latter was traveling south to north. Orbital mechanics being what it is, these two object cannot be related. I haven't looked into the fireball over California, so I don't know if it was related to either of the biggies. Here's a simulation of the Russian event that also shows it in relation to 2012 DA14: http://blogs.agi.com/agi/2013/02/15/russian-meteor...
