Shooting Star

Estrella fugaz

A star that is shooting through the night sky. A shooting star, however, isn't really a star. A shooting star is a space rock (meteoroid) burning up in the Earth's atmosphere. A star is a sun or planet that is really far away. Sometimes a planet can look like a star when the light from a star (sun) reflects off the surface of the planet.

Editorial Comment

The star is obviously shooting. This icon was moved from the keyboard in iOS 5 and the old icon became "Night with Stars" while this icon remains "Shooting Star".. Or perhaps is it the other way around and I was confused to begin with? Either way this is a completely different emoji. I rest my case.
