Morning news said it had nothing to do with the one passing us later on today. Or did I just misread your post?
That's what the news are saying and the scientists interviewed claim it's a collossal coincidence of astronomic proportions (I really have to make a video with footage of Bob Gunton playing Captain Benjamin Maxwell and then add his dialogue from "The Shawshank Redemption": "Lord, it's a miracle!").

Now, if meteroid blasts in our atmosphere like the one from today would be a common thing we'd hear about several times a year, I'd agree there is no connection.

However, given the close pass of Asteroid 2012 DA 14 tonight, I find myself unable not to see a connection which our current science is unable to explain.

Worse, the stupid movie "Armageddon" from 1998 claimed that the asteroid would be pushing meteroid debris ahead of it. I'm not aware whether Bruckheimer consulted with specialists prior to making this movie, but if he did, I'd like to hear what these specialists did say.
