Shooting Stars appear randomly in the sky between on clear to slightly cloudy nights.
|Shooting Star Times||7PM to 4 AM|
On nights that you island does see Shooting Stars, they will only appear anytime from 7 PM to 4 AM.
If Celeste is on your island, you can guarantee that Shooting Stars will appear that night. You'll also receive a DIY recipe from her, too!
Shooting Stars are natural occurances, so you cannot spawn them yourself. However, villagers can clue you in on when it might happen.
Meteor Showers are nights when Shooting Stars will appear more frequently that regular nights. You may see multiple Shooting Stars at once during a Meteor Shower!
Tom Nook or Isabelle will mention this on the day of the Meteor Shower during the daily island-wide broadcast.
Your island residents will mention meteor showers though, so it's always a good idea to talk to your villagers every day!
On the day of a Meteor Shower, Shooting Stars will still appear even if there are a few clouds. Always keep an eye out!
Shooting Stars create a very noticeable twinkling sound when it passes through the sky.
If your camera is facing down or you are doing something else, we suggest setting your volume on high so you don't miss a shooting star!
If you hear a twinkling sound, or see something move in the sky, immediately tilt the camera up using the Right Control Stick.
Press the A button while a Shooting Star is falling, and your character will make a wish. You can confirm this if the star twinkles when you press A.
You can wish multiple times to get up to 20 Star Fragments the next day.
You can also make a wish on a Shooting Star on your friend's island. By doing so, both of you can find Star Fragments on your beach the next day, so you might want to cooperate with a friend to get them!

Star Framents will appear along the beast the day after you make wishes on Shooting Stars. These are the most common and will appear more frequently than large Star Fragments and Zodiac Fragments.
The day after you make a wish on a Shooting Star, you will have a small chance of obtaining a Large Star Fragment. These are rare, so you'll need to try multiple times to obtain more than one Large Star Fragment.

There is a slim chance you can get Zodiac Fragments the day after you make a wish on a Shooting Star. The type of Zodiac Fragment depends on the month, and these are extremely rare.
|Aquarius Fragment||Pisces Fragment||Aries Fragment||Taurus Fragment||Gemini Fragment||Cancer Fragment|

When you talk to Celeste, who appears to watch the Shooting Star, she'll give you one of the above recipes which use Star Fragments. However, the Recipe which you will receive is randomly selected.
When you complete her recipes, she will give you a Zodiac fragment of that season instead.
Each month, you can also get a recipe from the Zodiac series.

meteors aren't random at all. they are a set formula. if you can discover your island seed you can easily see when they are scheduled. use a site like meteonook to find out your pattern, once you do, you'll know down to the second when meteors are falling.. https://wuffs.org/acnh/weather/
