Celeste specializes in astronomical concepts and provides players with a satisfactory dose of her knowledge whenever they find and approach her. While the common knowledge about Celeste is that she provides players with useful recipes, she also spares some of her time to educate players on zodiac fragments, if approached in a different way. This article will elaborate on the process of approaching the adorable owl in a mysterious way!

Celeste in Animal Crossing: New Horizons can talk more about zodiac fragments

As many wouldn’t know, approaching Celeste in a different way can get her to share interesting lore about zodiac fragments in the game. All players need are zodiac fragments in their pockets. Celeste appears between 7 pm and 4 am in Animal Crossing: New Horizons and only on clear nights when there’s a possibility of a meteor shower!

With different zodiac fragments in their pockets, players can approach Celeste whenever she shows up on the island. They can alternatively talk to her to get more information about the fragments. There are 12 zodiac fragments available on the island, each carrying a lore behind its origin. However, regular star fragments are not eligible for this mechanic.

With that being said, Celeste will give the player a recipe when approached for the first time. After concluding the talk with her about the recipe, the player can approach her again and interact with her.

Two different options will pop up when a player approaches Celeste for the second time. One option is ‘Take a look at this‘ and the other is ‘Let’s chat‘. If the player chooses the first option, Celeste will let him/her choose a fragment to know the lore behind it.
