Shooting Star Event Overview
What Is The Shooting Star Event?
A Star That Flies Across The Night Sky
The Shooting Star is an event that occurs on your island between the hours of 7pm and 4am. During this event, you can look up to the star and make a wish.
Get Star Fragments or Zodiac Fragments
When you take part in this event, you'll be able to get some rare DIY materials the following day, including Star Fragments and other Zodiac Fragments (like an Aries Fragment, etc). Large and Zodiac Fragments are extremely rare and getting them is entirely random!
When Do You See Shooting Stars?
Meteor Showers are entirely random. However, you'll be told a Meteor Shower is coming during the daily morning announcements, so make sure to check every day. As mentioned previously, the star itself comes between 7pm and 4am.

Ask About The Zodiac?
"If you show me something Zodiac-related, I'll tell you everything I happen to know about it!"
If you bring something to do with star signs and the Zodiac to Celeste, she'll talk to you about it. We currently don't have any zodiac-related items in our possession, so we were unable to confirm this. As soon as we can, expect an update!
Star Wand Is A Possible Reward
Although the DIY recipe you get is random, one item you can get is the Star Wand. After getting this, you'll need to collect materials to make it. To do this, you'll have to wish upon a star!Check Out All Other Wands You Can Get Here
Use Star Fragments For Other DIY Item
The Star Fragments are used to make other space-related items. Since star fragments are so hard to get, think carefully about how you use them.
How To Make A Wish
Look Up To The Sky
In order to get the materials for a Star Wand, use the R stick to gaze up at the sky and press A to make a wish when you see a shooting star. When you do this successfully, you will get the materials needed to make a Star Wand.
Shooting Stars Come One After Another
When you find a shooting star and are unable to make a wish, don't worry! More and more stars will come afterwards, giving you plenty of time to get ready.
