Actually the Star Fairy governs that section of the brain.
When the skull is impacted, the SF becomes disenfranchised from the main apparatus that can be loosely termed the "Star Throne", and as this occurs, some of the special star juice is ejected from her ample bosom. This fluid then travels along the optic nerve and onto the surface of the cornea, thereby allowing the punched to appreciate the wonderful bouquet of this cosmic "money shot".

So what causes this, is it anything to worry about?
Strange, I always thought my stars were red and white.
Edit: When I land on my head or get choked out, I generally like to lie there for a while until sensation has returned before getting up?

Mine were yellow : )
I don't know why they were distinctly star shaped though, and not just amporphous spots of light.

I think they're normally spots.

as long as the stars go away and you have no loss of vision ...
otherwise ... see a doctor ...

we call them bitch fairies at my school, and they are pretty normal to get from a good blow to the head. also learn to fall properly, you crazy bastard

I'll keep that in mind next time I get suplexed or body slammed.

Mine are actual yellow stars too, sometimes twinkling silver.
All the learning to fall right (not that I fall right) won't stop it from happening occassionally. If you do perfect ukemi and get your bell rung, you'll still see stars.
I dork harder than any of you can imagine.
Modesty forbids more.

Mine are yellow or sometimes silver, and they blink in and of existance in random patterns. But I´ll now try to remember Reese´s explanation whenever I see them.
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
