What do an asteroid and a meteor have in common?

Maybe something.. This snippet of information comes from the UK GUARDIAN:

Professor Ian Crawford of Birkbeck University was just interviewed about the meteorites on Sky News.

He said it was too early to tell if this incident was connected to the asteroid passing by the earth tonight.

The interviewed expert ends by stating the two space objects are ‘probably not’ connected..

I think the jury is out.
Just hope no more meteorites will shower the planet the rest of the day… And in fact I’m sure Russia hopes the same, too..
