Shooting Stars happen from 7:00 PM–4:00 AM. They can appear randomly in the sky on nights with clear skies
Shooting stars are fragments of meteor showers that fall down and show up on your island when you make a wish during the weather phenomena. You can use them to craft Shooting Star or Zodiac related DIY Recipes.
Although shooting stars can appear anytime when night sky is clear, more shooting stars will appear during a Meteor Shower.
Meteor Showers are a weather phenomena where you can watch a heavy shower of shooting stars fill the night sky!
Just like shooting stars, Meteor Showers are random and can be pretty difficult to predict. Keep an eye out for these to find out when a Meteor Shower is coming to your island!
Take note that meteor shower dates do not change on your island so it’s best to time travel to when you last remembered a meteor shower to get more star fragments!
Tom Nook or Isabelle will announce meteor showers during the island-wide broadcast, so pay close attention to it!
However, an announcement will not be made if another event is happening, such as a villager's birthday or a villager moving in to or out of the island.
On the day of the meteor shower, your island residents will also talk to you about meteor showers!
|1||Tilt Camera upwards|
|2||Press the A Button to make a wish!|
When you hear the twinkle of a star in the sky, tilt the Camera upwards with the Right Control Stick!
Press the A Button while a Shooting Star is falling, and your character will make a wish! You'll know that you made a wish when the star twinkles yellow.
On the day after wishing on shooting stars, Star Fragments will appear all across the shore! These star fragments will glow in the dark, which make them the perfect nighttime island decorations!
You can also use them craft Celeste's DIY Recipes.
