Meteor Showers cause more Shooting Stars to appear at a time. You may see multiple Shooting Stars at once during a Meteor Shower.
Additionally, on the day of a Meteor Shower, Tom Nook or Isabelle will announce the start of the day.
The Meteor Show might not be announced if there is another event such as tourneys or resident birthdays. However, the residents can tell you about it so always talk to your neighbors!
Shooting Stars also appear even when there are no Meteor Showers. Although its probability is low, it will not be announced and you will have to check it yourself.
On the day of a Meteor Shower, Shooting Stars will still appear even if it is cloudy. You will still be able to see them so keep an eye out!
|Shooting Star Appearance Time||7PM to 4AM|
Shooting Stars will fall sometime at night, from 7 PM to 4 AM since the day changes at 5 AM.
The moment a Shooting Star passes through the sky, it will create a twinkling sound. Even if the camera is facing down or you are doing something else, it will still make this sound. We recommend setting your volume on high so you will not miss it.
When you press the A Button while a Shooting Star is falling, you can make a Wish. Making a Wish will allow you to find rare DIY Materials like Star Fragments and Large Star Fragments on the beach the next day. In particular, if you're hoping to find a Large Star Fragment, be sure to find multiple Shooting Stars and Wish on each one to maximize your chances of finding one.
You can also make a wish on a Shooting Star on your friend's island. By doing so, you can find Star Fragments on your beach the next day, so you might want to cooperate with a friend to get them!

If Celeste is on your island that night, does that guarantee the appearance of shooting stars? :( I've been playing for a month and I still haven't seen much
