There was a freak meteor shower over Southern California tonight and I missed it :goth:
So far, I've only seen a post on facebook by a local TV station, NBC LA, about it.
Some checking on the web suggests it might have been a minor shower, the Taurids, having an unusually strong shower.

meanwhile, interesting results from studies of the chelyabinks event have been released, and they're interesting

one of the more intriguing things they've discovered is that meteors are capable of a lot more destruction than previously thought ... originally rocks below a certain size were ignored, but now that's probably going to have to be changed
Confirmation the meteor was from the Taurids. The meteor is estimated at baseball size.
