All within 24 hours of the 2012 DA14 flyby. One heck of a coincidence.

From the description it sounds like space junk falling.

We're just NOTICING more of these of late.

If you go to the AMS Fireball reporting site, there are zillions of these over the US all the time.

3 weeks ago, nobody would have called the police about this and it wouldn't have been mentioned in the LA media at all.

Our galaxy, The Milky Way is a fairly big one as these things go. It's light years long tendrils of gas and dust radiate out from the center like spokes in a wheel. On really dark nights, when there is no moon and depending on where you live with little or no light pollution you can see wisps of it. I believe we live in what would be suburbia, outward from the center in an area called the "Virgo Super cluster''. Trouble is though our galaxy and our sister galaxy Andromeda are heading towards each other at about 400'000 miles and hour. But at 3 million, 200'000 light years apart it'll be a while before it gets here.
