The east coast meteor of 2013 was still much smaller than the Russian meteor/meteorite that hit on February 15th of this year.
I was able to witness the Nov. 8th 1982 east coast meteor event. As a teenager I was walking through a parking lot at Wheaton Plaza with friends that night when we noticed a "fireball" streaking green/red/blue colors across the sky. The resultant meteorite landed in Connecticut - hitting a house and causing minor damage. No word (yet) where or if a meteorite will be found from this 1 meter (3ft.) wide object from space.
