Wish upon a star…

If the weather is clear between 10am and 11am, the town’s signboard will have a note saying that a meteor shower will occur in the evening. This will be from 7pm and 4am the next morning.

Meteor showers occur at four times during the year:

  • 1st April to 10th April
  • 16th June to 5th July
  • 10th December
  • 24th December to 30th December
    You can wish upon a star by pressing A when you see a falling star. Press Up on the D pad to look at the sky and then wait for a falling star.

If you did it correctly, the star will sparkle and make a noise. The next morning Wishy will send you a letter with a piece of rare furniture.
