Stars at night


In-game Mechanic Sprite


At night

First Appearance

Update 0.7.3

Stars were a feature added in Update 0.7.3, along with the Sun and the Moon. Together with the moon, the night sky also consists of stars. In current versions, the stars appear as bright points, and the starfield rotates as the night progresses.


They are meant to represent the stars one would normally see at night in real life.


  • Night time lasts 7 minutes, plus 1.5 minutes each of sunrising and sunsetting.
  • Stars in Minecraft are actually square pixels.
  • If the Player falls into the Void during night, the Player will see the stars below their feet.
  • The Stars do not actually emit light in Minecraft.
