I dont think its becoming anymore frequent, to be honest you need to watch the sky more.
If youve ever watched a meteor shower or just have seen many of them in different instances, they fall all different directions, ive seen ones that
looked like they were going "up" just because of the angle I was on and their trajectory.
Just a few weeks ago I witnessed my first "green" meteor and it fell for quite sometime it was beautiful (and rather close) so I could see the
different colours, there was green flames / tail covering 75% of it and the rest was orange and yellow. Beautiful.
When I was younger I used to watch the sky all night, mostly when I was hanging out with certain friends wed just lay on the beach and stare up on
clear nights, wed see about 5 - 6 meteors per night.
hell even now I still see them when it happens to be a clear night and im having a cigarette, to see one within a 5 minute period just happen to be
looking up, id say they are frequent right now and always have been, people are just surrounded by light polution and are too ignorant to look up.
people should look up more, when you see a big shooting star, its awe inspiring. The best one ive ever seen lasted about 2-3 seconds, it broke into 3
peices which traveled for another 2 seconds, it was amazing. the green meteor rivals this because it was close and ive never seen a green one before.
must have been alot of copper in it, thats my guess.
