1. Has anyone linked the Russian meteorite to the approach of this asteroid?

Perhaps it was a leading fragment? They both have tracks pretty much right over the Urals.

3. They say the unexpected one came from the north, but the other is coming in from the south

A scientist was quoted as saying that somewhere here in GD or LBN.

4. Neil deGrasse Tyson talked about this on his interview this morning...

...and said the time lag between last night's meteorite and DA14 was too great and made it very unlikely that the meteorite was a leading fragment.

5. Thanks!

The thought just occurred to me - Dr Tyson is the exact authority I'd want to ask.
