Asteria’s Myth here
In Greek mythology, Asteria or Asterie was the Titan goddess of nocturnal oracles and falling stars.
In the golden age of Olympia the land of earth was all one piece floating on unbroken water. Far above, where the gods and goddesses ruled from Olympus, Zeus, who thought of himself as a chick magnet, sat and ogled the ladies. Some ogled back which boosted his ego even further. Some played coy, but, hey, he was a god, a pretty good catch, so they didn’t resist. He was the man, er, the god.
Then, Leto’s sister, dropped by the palace and Zeus fell in lust, I mean, love with her also. “Asteria,” he said, “You are the brightest star in the heavens. Come, let our love shine even brighter.” (I know, he wasn’t the smoothest guy on a throne.) Asteria, predictably, was underwhelmed by his charm. “Uh, Zeus, bro-in-law, ain’t no way!” she replied. “Yes, way,” said Zeus. Well, you can see how this was going. She ran from him. He chased her. She was faster so he turned himself into an eagle and swooped after her. Asteria said I’d rather die than be with you and turned herself into a quail and dived into the sea.
Asteria was no fool. She knew being a quail wasn’t going to stop Zeus so she turned herself into land that rose and was encircled by water, the first island. It was named Asteria, ‘the island which had fallen from heaven like a star’. After that whenever a dying star plunged toward earth she guided it to the sea where it became another island
