Meteor shower

From Equestripedia, the Archives of Equestria!
The Centennial Celebration at Observatory Hill

A meteor shower was a celestial event in which several meteors are observed to radiate and "fall" (or shower) from the sky.

In Equestria, Meteor showers tended to lend themselves to picnics in which several ponies and other creatures would huddle around an area to observe the sky and hang out with their friends and family.
