Not more widespread, but we have cameras everywhere, so whatever is visible is often captured on video. Fireballs like on the NJ video happen many times every day somewhere on Earth.
The fireball in Sweden is very exciting. The current solution points to an object falling steeply (~70° slope) entering at about 17 km/s, penetrating deeply into the atmosphere. Still bright when it when under the horizon at 0.7° altitude more than 400 km away, at which point it was 17 km above ground. How low the luminous path really was can't be said, but for comparison Chelyabinsk was observed down to 13 km.
The meteor generated a powerful infrasound event which was clearly recorded in Norway 21 minutes later. Any seismic stations near the fall might also have recorded the blast as a seismic event. That remains to be investigated.
