All on the same day when the asteroid passed within 17,200 miles from Earth, another one explodes over populated areas in Russia. Quite a coincidence. Astronomers say these two events are not related. Still, amazing coincidence as it is rare that a meteor causes injury and damage. Usually they blow up unnoticed over the ocean (I'd guess) as most of the earth's surface is ocean. Some meteors do appear over land, but rare that they come close enough to human habitation to cause damage. All on the day of close approach for another asteroid.
Are the "forces" out there dropping hints?
Pay attention, we are living on a planet, but that planet is in space. In a way, we are living in space.
