I’m catching a flight early tomorrow a.m., Detroit to San Diego. All this is making me a little more nervous and uneasy than usual.

You don’t have much to worry about; these (meaning the West Coast Fireball, not the Russian one) are fairly routine. However they are going to get much more media attention and are much more likely to be posted on FR from now on, which inevitably will lead to the impression that there are suddenly a lot more of them.

The American Meteor Society has a site where the public can post their reports (which can then be used to estimate the orbit of the meteor).

Last night’s event (32 reports):

However just in 2013 so far, there have been 7 other events with more reports just over the US alone:

And there were 25 such events in 2012:
