List of Contents
After seeing and wishing upon shooting stars in ACNH, you will be able to find Star Fragments on the beach the very next day.
Sometimes on clear nights, 5 stars will fall quickly after each other but then nothing will happen for a long time. We recommend finding real meteor showers, where shooting stars will fall constantly throughout the night for the best source of these rare crafting items!
To wish on shooting stars and get lots of Star Fragments, you need to look up at the sky with the R-stick and press A when you see a shooting star. Make 20 wishes and invite guests if possible to maximize the number of fragments you can get!
Once you've gotten all the Star DIY recipes from Celeste, she may give you 5 Star Fragments if you talk to her again. She can also give you Large Star Fragments and the Zodiac Star fragments, so keep an eye out on this nightowl even after you get all DIYs!
Each type of Star Fragment has a specific drop rate percentage.
|Star Fragment Drop Rates|
|Large Star Fragment||5%|
|Wishes Made by||Max Star Fragments||Min. Wishes Needed|
|You + Visitors||40||20 (you)
+ 100 (visitors)
The max amount of Star Fragments that can appear on the beach at the same time is 10. However, if you made more than 10 wishes, the rest of your fragments will appear as time passes.
You get one Star Fragment for each wish you make, and you can get a maximum of 20 Star Fragments. Since the max is 20, don't waste your time making more than 20 wishes during meteor showers.
|Personal Wishes||Star Fragments|
You get one Star Fragment for every 5 wishes your visitors make. A separate 20-fragment limit applies to visitors' wishes.
Therefore, you can get a maximum 20 additional Star Fragments for 100 wishes your visitors make. The 100 wishes can be made by one or several visitors, it doesn't have to be 20 wishes per person!
Once everyone has their 20 personal wishes and you've reached 100 visitor wishes, you can call it a day.
|Visitor Wishes||Star Fragments|
If you make 20 wishes and your visitors make 100 wishes total, you can get a maximum grand total of 40 Star Fragments.
By far, the best way to farm Star Fragments is making 20 wishes at meteor showers.
Up to 10 Star Fragments can appear on the beach at the same time, so collecting the remaining 10 might take a while.
If you make sure to pick up all shells on your beach before ending your game on the day of the meteor shower, you can guarantee that the first 10 Star Fragments appear immediately, making it a lot easier to collect them. The amount of Star Fragments you gain won't change, but you can decrease the wait time for all Star Fragments to appear.
Once you find a date with a meteor shower, it is possible to repeatedly change the date back and forth to farm Star Fragments. No matter how far in time you travel, that day will always have a meteor shower you can come back to. One way to know that there will be a meteor shower is through Isabelle's announcements.
Make 20 wishes at a meteor shower.
|2||Change the Date:
Find 10 Star Fragments next day.
|3||Change the Time:
Progress 1 hour, collect Star Fragments.
Save and end.
|5||Change the Date:
Go to a day before the meteor shower and save.
|6||Go to the day of the meteor shower and repeat from step 1.|
Note: If you didn't find 10 Fragments, pick up shells to allow more to appear.
Keep in mind that the Zodiac/Horiscope Fragments are limited to a set period, so you can only farm the Fragment that is available in the time period your meteor shower occurs.
If you don't want to time travel, the best way to find meteor showers in ACNH is to look online for other players that are inviting guests for their meteor shower. Some might charge a fee, so look for either free access or a price you can live with!

>>12 "20 Max Star Fragments from Visitors' Wishes. You get 1 Star Fragment for every 5 wishes your visitors make." If one visitor makes 100 wishes, you would still get 20 fragments from visitors (there's not a limit of 4 per visitor)
