Meteor Crash, This Time In Cuba

Two meteor crashes (one in Cuba now) and a flyby asteroid all within a few hours seems unlikely to be a coincidence.

Chelyabinsk: What, Exactly, Just Happened?

The jury should still be out on whether this was related to the other asteroid.

Given that there is a close flyby of another object today, missing the Earth by only a whisker in astronomical terms (just a few earth radii away, and inside the orbit of our communications satellites), it seems like a strange coincidence in terms of timing. When I heard the news of the Russian strike this morning, my most immediate thought was that it was a fellow traveler.
