That just means you've caught it, so it's a good thing. ^_^

It's probably a critical capture like in the main series

It just happened to me with a magikarp and I thought that I meant it was shiny

I was wondering the same thing. It just started happening the past few days and I can't figure out what these stars shooting out mean and I've played since the beginning so I know what things should look like. It's not your standard ring that comes out with a regular capture. Ive looking online for other references to it but your comment was all I could find. If anyone knows what it is I would be very interested

Same here! When you capture and the stars don't just come out but spiral out of the ball? I think the dude is right, cause I only see the special stars when the capture went really fast

Yeah, I thought maybe it was for the first catch of the day but that theory got shot almost immediately. It's like a little flourish of shooting stars coming out the left side? I dunno.

I believe it's a critical capture. Instead of the ball shaking 3 times to catch a pokemon. It only shakes once

There are now “Critical Captures” in the game, where you will sometimes snag an instant Pokémon catch on a single shake, which is something pulled from the handheld game. What causes Critical Captures has not been exactly determined, but it could be the capture bonuses provided by medals.

Search "critical capture" and there are a few hits associated with Pokemon go.
