The Shooting Star Event - Time Guide

A Star That Flies Across The Night Sky

shooting star

The Shooting Star is an event that occurs on your island between the hours of 7pm & 4am. During this event, you can look up to the star & make a wish.

When Do You See Shooting Stars? (Hours)

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 the hours of 7pm & 4am.

How Often Do Shooting Stars Come?

While advancing time for various experiments, we observed that Celeste usually appears at least once a month. However, your milage may vary, as it is indeed random.

How To Wish On A Star

Look Up To The Sky


In order to wish upon a shooting star, 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 star fragment on the next day on the beach.

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.

When you take part in this event, you'll be able to get some rare DIY materials the following day, including Star Fragments & other Zodiac Fragments (like an Aries Fragment, etc). Large & Zodiac Fragments are extremely rare & getting them is entirely random!

For time travelers I am in northern hemisphere and on Jan 30th 2023 I ran across a meteor shower, I’ve gone back several times to visit the same day and it continues to reoccur. Just putting that out there for any time travelers. :)

Anonymous 26

3 of my Villagers told me there was going to be a Meteor Shower tonight. I was finally ready ahead of time, thanks to them. The only time I got an announcement from Isabelle was in my first or second week of playing the game.

Ember 25

I have been playing since the very first week of release and I have never, not ever had a meteor shower on my island! I’m not ver happy about it

Mee 24

Nope. I did not meet Celeste once. I play AC for about a week but a slow pace. I manage to catch my first meteor show at 11.20 pm on June 2nd

Anonymous 23

Actual meteor showers have tons of shooting stars and are announced. There are times you can get shooting stars without having a meteor shower but there's usually only a couple at a time.
