    With Ted's indulgence, since this isn't very SeeSatish, this post on is, IMO, worth consideration:
    Once an orbit for the meteor is determined the likelihood of a relation to 2012 
    DA14 will be clearer.
    A statement from NASA 
    "According to NASA scientists, the trajectory of the Russian meteorite was 
    significantly different than the trajectory of the asteroid 2012 DA14, making it 
    a completely unrelated object. Information is still being collected about the 
    Russian meteorite and analysis is preliminary at this point. In videos of the 
    meteor, it is seen to pass from left to right in front of the rising sun, which 
    means it was traveling from north to south. Asteroid DA14's trajectory is in the 
    opposite direction, from south to north."
