I am in Woodstock Ontario and I saw the largest shooting star in my life. It was brilliant white core. My father saw the same thing in Simcoe an hour south east of here. It looked to me that it hit somewhere north of here. For almost half an hour the northern horizon was bright almost the sun was just setting. Please tell me someone else saw this too.

Remember we are close to solstice and it was a very clear night so exceptionally long twilight.
I'm sure you saw what everyone else did a big fireball - they are pretty rare that size.
I've only seen one in that category that cruised the horizon dripping green fire.
The green is copper.
There is one on youtube - not the one you saw but may give a perspective on size
and another good - guy with the camera was good.
someone actually captured the one you saw ( poor footage ) the meteor last night - had to be very bright given the lights he was shooting near while in a vehicle

I once saw a "fireball" in my teens about this time of year. It wasn't even twilight yet and the sky was still quite bright. It almost looked like it fell into our neighbor's backyard. It actually looked like a fireball all flaming yellow orange and then it broke into several flaming pieces before it extinguished and I guess the remaining pieces hit the earth or just burned up completely.
