If you're trying to collect Star Fragments in Animal Crossing: New Horizons, then you're going to need to wish on a hell of a lot of falling stars. To do so, however, you'll have to wait til you're in the thick of a meteor shower. Not wanting to leave it up to chance? Here's what we know about the regular Animal Crossing New Horizons meteor shower time

Animal Crossing New Horizons Meteor Shower Time

You may already know that you get different visitors to your island based on seasonal events, like the Bunny Day festivities that are currently on (and if you need more information about that, check out this guide that we've relinked here for your convenience). However, there are also activities that crop up based on the time of day. Which, yes, includes visits from Celeste. You'll know her as Blathers' sister, and she shows up randomly on your island at night to tell you about wishing on stars and to give you DIY recipes related to items that use Star Fragments. 

However, to wish on stars, you can only do so during meteor shows. As such, it's important to know what the Animal Crossing New Horizons meteor shower time period is. While meteor showers are not guaranteed to appear every night, when they do appear they do so between the hours of 7 PM and 4 AM. If you're curious about whether you'll experience a meteor shower, the morning announcements in your island will usually give you a heads up so it'll just be about waiting out the appropriate amount of time. 

Now that you have a better idea of the Animal Crossing New Horizons meteor shower time, you should know when to be gallivanting around the island square so that you can catch Celeste and anything else that you might be looking for on a dark night. With Celeste, the recipes that she can provide are random as she wanders from island to island, so we hope that you catch her at the right time and in the right mood if you want something more than a Magic Wand.
