Newly Released Map Data Shows Frequency of Small Asteroid Impacts, Provides Clues on Larger Asteroid Population
Linda Billings & NASA/JPL Near-Earth Object Program Office
November 14, 2014
  It happens all the time: small asteroids impact Earth's atmosphere
Small asteroids near Earth, with sizes of only about a meter, hit the atmosphere and disintegrate with surprising frequency - around every other week, new data show.
  Data gathered by U.S. government sensors and released to NASA for use by the science community reveal that these small impact events are frequent and random. A map of these small impact events - known as fireballs or bolides - recently released by NASA shows the frequency and approximate energy released by bolide events detected from 1994 through 2013. It dwarfs a data-base of small impacts based on infra-sound detections released last fall, but it does not contain all fireballs - objects less than a meter in size - that impacted the Earth during this period. ... more- http://neo.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news186.html

Updated Charts for Asteroid 2004 BL86 Earth Flyby on Jan 26, 2015
Paul Chodas & Jon Giorgini- NASA/JPL Near-Earth Object Program Office January 22, 2015
This diagram shows the close passage of 2004 BL86 on January 26, 2015. The view is nearly edge-on to the Earth's orbit; the Moon's nearly circular orbit is highly foreshortened from this viewpoint. The asteroid moves from the south to the north, from below the Earth's orbit to above. The indicated times are Universal Time. Closest approach occurs at about 16:19 UTC, or about 11:19 EST. The roughly 500-meter (1500-foot) asteroid approaches to within 1.2 million kilometers (750,000 miles) of Earth, or about 3.1 times the distance of the Moon. ...

Gullies on Vesta Suggest Past Water-Mobilized Flows
Jet Propulsion Laboratory- January 21, 2015
Protoplanet Vesta, visited by NASA's Dawn spacecraft from 2011 to 2013, was once thought to be completely dry, incapable of retaining water because of the low temperatures and pressures at its surface. However, a new study shows evidence that Vesta may have had short-lived flows of water-mobilized material on its surface, based on data from Dawn. ...

NASA's Close-Approach tables indicate a high number of recent asteroid discoveries. As such, we may be in for a busy period of meteor and/or meteorite sightings...throughout January and into February 2015. Keep your eyes to the skies (but be safe if driving, running, walking etc). Priority, obviously, to what's in front of you - rather than what's in the skies!

Asteroids / Comets: Seems Like We Are in a Very Busy Neighborhood
Posted to YouTube by nemesis maturity 1,256 views
Published on Jan 15, 2015
  NASA's Near-Earth Object Wide-field Survey Explorer (NEOWISE) spacecraft discovered and characterized 40 near-Earth objects (NEOs) in the first year after the mission was re-started in December 2013. Eight of the discoveries have been classified as potentially hazardous asteroids (PHAs), based on their size and how close their orbits could come to Earth's orbit.
  The mission has further observed and characterized 245 previously known near-Earth objects.
  From December 2013 to December 2014, NEOWISE discovered three new comets and observed 32 others. One of the others has turned into the brightest comet in Earth's night sky in early 2015, comet C/2014 Q2 (Lovejoy).

NEOs Asteroids Close Approaches January 2015
ALERT- Several MORE Large Meteors PENDING!
January 2015 Meteors
c2015 Dirk Ross
  There are currently 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 known NEO Asteroids discovered that will pass within approximately 10LD or less, LD stands for "Lunar Distance", in the month of January; expect that 10 or more NEOs will be discovered before month end. Be ready for some bolide, fireball, and meteor activity!
 Unfortunately we will be Moonblind for ground-based detection from 02DEC2014 until about the 11JAN2015  and from 28JAN-12FEB2015 so I expect several asteroids that will go undetected.
 There are four small mountan-sized asteroids that will safely pass this month.
