What Time Do Shooting Stars Happen in ACNH?


During the nights in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, players can spot shooting stars in the sky and wish on them for Star Fragments. But when exactly can the shooting stars be seen?

What Time Do Shooting Stars Happen in ACNH?

Shooting stars, or meteor showers, will happen on clear nights around 7 p.m. in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.

A good sign of this is catching Celeste around your town.

Shooting stars will show up on the same nights that Celeste, a Stargazing Aficionado, shows up in your town. She will occasionally visit the player's island and provide special star-themed recipes to the player.

According to player reports, the shooting stars usually last until around 4 a.m., so that gives those interested in making wishes plenty of time to use the stars to their advantage.

Players can look up using Up on the D-Pad and, as long as they have no tools in hand, there's a good chance that they'll be able to wish on a shooting star that night.

While Celeste isn't always a guarantee, she's a good tell for if there's going to be shooting stars that night.

Another way to tell is by talking to your villagers during the day. If Isabelle or your villagers are talking about a meteor shower, it's guaranteed to happen that night.
