stars falling from sky

How do you think the stars will fall from heaven at the 2nd Coming? This is a supernatural event to clarify. Me I think either they will seem to fall on the horizon or it is referring to meteors.

Most likely a metaphor for a profound change that cannot be expressed any other way

Mat 24:29 NKJV, "Immediately after the tribulation of those days the sun will be darkened, and the moon will not give its light; the stars will fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens will be shaken."

Possibly, as the Kingdom of God is literally coming to earth and the older things are beginning to pass away. However Isaiah also mentions this event. Isaiah 34:4 NIV"All the stars in the sky will be dissolved and the heavens rolled up like a scroll; all the starry host will fall like withered leaves from the vine, like shriveled figs from the fig tree." http://biblehub.com/isaiah/34-4.htm for more translations.
The detail in how they will fall (or appear to fall) seems to indicate that it will be real, let's pray to God about it.
