#020 Starbug

Fully-grown starbugs make up the majority of visible lights in the night sky with their planet-sized bodies, but baby starbugs hatch and spend most of their pre-celestial life on abandoned planets until they learn to fly well enough to pierce gravity wells.

They drift endlessly, often for centuries, until they find a planet with sufficient gravitational pull to draw them into its atmosphere. The meteoric impact is what cracks the shell and releases a newborn starbug.
