Earth Impactors - Meteors and their parent bodies

Parent bodies of the most of major meteor showers have been identified as comets or dormant comets. On the other, it is still a matter of finding parent bodies of meteorites. Here, I will present asteroid related fireballs, and an artificial fireball (HAYABUSA asteroid explored spacecraft and its capsule) directly reentered from the interplanetary orbit. HAYABUSA and HAYABUSA2 will be also introduced.
