It's very likely you've already heard about the spectacular Russian meteor fly-by event and (several meteorites) impact/s by now. It has only been reported by one thousand media outlets (give or take) at this writing. Estimates of injuries due to the meteor shower impacts is around 250, 500 or even one thousand - it seems like the number could grow. We suppose the number of gadgets that could have been used to capture the event are numerous. Most of them would include dashcams, satellites, telescopes and even a smartphone app.
NPR has reported that the reason so many dashcams caught the Russian meteor event is that there is a real need for them. The need is relatively "astronomical" - NPR reports they are needed for the astronomical number of vehicle crashes over there! For a compilation of some of the videos you might care to see the post by The Daily Grail. And then again there is the AP video posted with this article from Grab Media. Spacecams, such as the SEVIRI on the Meteosat, also captured space images of such events. This image was found posted on Twitter.
Except for the dashcam and other videos, there seem to be surprisingly few photos of this year's Russian meteor event. Even NASA mentions it only in passing and that is in relation to today's 2012 Asteroid DA14 fly-by event. If you use the previous link (and the embedded links) you may be able to remotely observe the second space object event of the day! All the world (or just about) has been planning the second space interaction of the day. The first event, not so much, even though NASA has its own Near Earth Object Program.
Even though extreme close-up meteor events like this are exceedingly rare, they do happen from time to time. It's much more surprising when it's so close to our home planet. You can keep track of future meteor events - yes there is an app for that. The app is called Meteor Counter and you may use it for the purpose of citizen science and transmit your meteor reports to NASA. The app is available from Apple and Google Play. The Google Play app (as expected) has some complaints but doesn't appear to be a "malicious app". The Meteor Counter app may be very helpful if you happen to observe the next Russian meteor event.
