The Falling Star rarely spawns on the surface of Terra during the day. Despite its close resemblance to the Glowing Star, it is actually considered a mob. It has the ability to jump around and actively flees from the player, which is opposed to most critters who wander around aimlessly. The Falling Star is based on the mob of the same name from the original Junk Jack and retains its ability to jump up to 9 blocks high. This renders the mob extremely hard to kill. Like most mobs, however, liquids cause it to greatly slow down making it much easier to kill. This mob has a higher chance to spawn during sun sets.
