Meteor wave -- asteroid activity is increasing dramatically



The Earth has been experiencing a notable period of meteorite events,
in the final weeks of 2012.

UPDATE: Meteor explodes over Russia -- 15 Feb 2013 0800 GMT.
UPDATE: At least 1000 injured by Russian meteor (BBC, Reuters)
UPDATE: There was also a separate unconfirmed
incident in Canada around the same period. meteor More details
below.
UPDATE: A few hours later, a meteor fireball was observed over
California, and there was also a similar incident over Cuba within the
same window of a few hours.

It seems there have been more significant asteroid incidents lately.
Fireballs in the sky, as well as Near Earth Objects observed by NASA.
It's as though we're entering a meteor shower or some sort of hot
spot.

If we plot a graph of the most spectacular fireball incidents over time,
the graph rises sharply starting October 2012 and is still rising steeply
upwards. How long before this meteor wave peaks? And is the biggest
space rock of the 2012 meteor wave yet to come? Asteroid 2012 DA14
will skim Earth on 15 February 2013 with a low risk of impact, and there
are plenty more like it still undiscovered.

Examples of major fireballs in the sky: Punjab in India on 17 Dec,
Calgary USA on 16 Dec, Maryland and Virginia in USA on 13 Dec, two
incidents over Ontario in Canada on 12 Dec, Black Sea in Turkey 11
Dec, Texas in USA on 7 Dec, Malta on 4 Dec, over Missouri and Illinois
in USA on 4 Dec, Rhode Island on 3 Dec, Poland on 29 Nov, Georgia
USA on 29 Nov, North-east US on 28 Nov, Queensland in Australia 26
Nov, California and Nevada in USA 24 Nov, Georgia and Tennessee on
19 Nov, Vancouver in Canada on 15 Nov, Bay Area of San Francisco in
USA on 17 October, etc! In the recent meteor wave, spectacular
fireballs in the sky are have often been accompanied by other
phenomena such as loud noises, seismic vibrations, and in Texas
reports of "northern lights" type effects in the sky during the event and
power lines in 5 separate counties burst into flames the previous day.
(Interestingly, it's theoretically possible that the swarm of power line
fires were caused by dust from disintegrating meteorites or shooting
stars -- often rich in iron and sometimes solid metal: "One power
company technician told a News 10 reporter near McGregor that the
fires likely were caused by a build up of dust on transformers that
shorted out due to low-lying fog.")

2013 will be an historic year for comets, with two spectacular near
passes scheduled, one of which is billed as the brightest comet to be
seen in the sky in the history of our species -- it's expected to be
visible even in day time and to outshine a full moon.

So far none of these meteors has been big enough to cause significant
damage, however if the planet is passing into a meteorite hot spot
there might be a bigger one coming soon.
