A projection of the impactor's estimated orbit has been released:

Its elliptical orbit extended well past the orbit of Mars, suggesting it may have originated in the Main Asteroid Belt. Further proof that it had nothing to do with the asteroid 2012 DA14, which is a Near-Earth Object that orbits between Venus and Earth.
There you go, letting the facts get in the way of a good story.
