Is it just me or does Russia seem to have a knack for attracting meteors?

Hi; Dash cams seem very popular in russia...which would account for extra film footage of meteors..

I saw more bright green meteors the last two months then ever before. Earth must be going through some trail of asteroid debris.

Dash cams are not just popular but are required by insurance companies. A good reason many celestial events are caught by cameras.

Yes, and I guess it also helps that Russia is the biggest country on Earth, and the bigger a country is the more likely it is that a random meteor coming towards Earth will come to that country.

More likely nickel:

The dominant composition of a meteoroid can play an important part in the observed colors of a fireball, with certain elements displaying signature colors when vaporized. For example, sodium produces a bright yellow color, nickel shows as green, and magnesium as blue-white.

Thx didn't know that nickel was burning green too, like copper. It's why I use ''?'' because normally you don't have a lot of copper in it... was thinking that nickel was burning silver-white because it does in flame test...
