Thank you Eddie!  Great Catch!!!!

Huge fireball seen from Puerto Rico
A brilliant fireball was seen yesterday from Puerto Rico and was observed from all the Caribbean Island. "It was so bright that the intense light saturated our sky cameras", reports Eddie Irizarry from Sociedad de Astronomia del Caribe. Irizarry says the huge meteor can be seen illuminating his backyard and personal observatory at the end of a video. Images also show a smoke trail left behind by the small space rock, which lasted several seconds to dissipate.

Worldwide Meteor Alert Issued -Second Time for JAN2014

Worldwide Meteor Alert  Issued-
  Large Meteor Outburst Possible Near CERTAIN! 14JAN2014 -  31JAN204
Alert issued 12JAN2014 - 0154 Japan Standard Time by LunarMeteoriteHunter, Tokyo
reposted 19JAN2014
"Large enough" 1.2 km - 2.6 km equals 0.75 mile - 1.62 mile diameter known asteroid, 251346 (2007 SJ) , passing Earth's neighborhood on 21JAN2014 at 18.9 LD during this period of days.
Currently we are nearly "moon-blind" for discovery of approaching, yet undiscovered, NEOs by ground-based telescopes.  I suspect that we will have a few large meteor events during the period of 14JAN2014 -  31JAN204 as we will have one "large enough" 1.2 km - 2.6 km  equals  0.75 mile - 1.62 miles, diameter known asteroid, 251346 (2007 SJ) , passing Earth's  neighborhood  at 18.9 LD during this period of days. One Lunar Distance, LD, equals ~384,000 kilometers or about 238,607 miles. 18.9 LD is not extremely close, but debris that may be accompanying it may be much closer and enter our atmosphere prior to any detection.

Currently 3 NEOs now discovered with an LD of less than 10 or about.

Currently known NEOs with an LD of less than 10- This is certainly incomplete!

Observers do have your  security cameras or allsky cameras ready 24/7 please.  If possible get out and observe and you might just be lucky enough to witness a spectacular meteor, fireball, or bolide! Who knows we may get lucky and even have some new meteorites! Please get the word out via Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, ATS, GLP,  SOTT, or your favorite forums and kindly mention this website; thank you-
