If you can find a meteorite it's worth thousands of dollars to collectors. $$$
And yes meteorites can come in at any trajectory.
Green, blue, yellow, white, etc. These are all very common colors for meteorites depending on the composition.
I have seen a green-blue colored meteorite explode, it made a loud pop sound and several crackles afterwards like fireworks. And it brightened up the
sky so much that you could see the smoke trail it left, the spot where it exploded in the sky(where the super bright light emanated from which covered
the whole sky), and all of the little tiny smoke trails that forked off the explosion point.
There are meteorites visible falling every night of the year. It's extremely common.
