I thought it was a myth, but I actually saw stars!
Is this normal, should I be worried!
I was working techniques last night with a Judoka green belt that had not been active for some time. We were working on moving and throwing Seoi-nage (shoulder throw, a variation of ippon-seoi-nage). And she, yes she…stop giggling, planted me on my head and shoulders. When I got up, I was a little dizzy and saw little yellow stars, rotating around in my peripheral vision.
So what causes this, is it anything to worry about?

do you mean cartoon style rotating-ring-of-stars, or the usual white bloodcells sparking across your vision?

Yeah, normal ~ probably a mild concussion.

At the gym we call it "greeting the fairy". Dunno why.That civilisation may not sink,
Its great battle lost,
Quiet the dog, tether the pony
To a distant post;
Our master Caesar is in the tent
Where the maps are spread,
His eyes fixed upon nothing,
A hand under his head.
- W.B. Yeats

You stood up too fast/soon after the impact.
When I take a solid shot to the head or face I remember all kinds of crazy stuff that I never would have remembered otherwise. Just unimportant details of totally insignificant events.

Your optic nerves are connected to the occipital lobe, which is responsible for visual processing. Bang this part of your brain, you see stars. Simple!
