It Seems to Me that the Number of Meteor Reports in the Media Has Been Unusually High


The Washington Post just reported 2/22/2013: Apparent meteor streaks across evening sky in D.C. area http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/2013/03/22/d1c92d54-9357-11e2-a31e-14700e2724e4_story.html?wpisrc=nl_headlines


However, I am not certain that the actual number of meteors sighted on earth has increased this year because the media may simply be reporting more of them after the spectacular Russian one, which NASA reported as the largest in 100 years here

Here is a list of 2013 meteors here

Has anyone seen any comparative analysis?

Are we getting more or are they simply being reported more often in the press?
