This falling (or fallen) star is an angel, not an actual star (angels are often referred to as stars in Scripture). His name, Abaddon (Greek equivalent to Apollyon--both meaning "destroyer," Revelation 9:11), would indicate that he is either Satan or one of the principals in the Satanic hierarchy. Satan had fallen from heaven to the earth long ago (Isaiah 14:12; Luke 10:18), though he still has some access to the heavenly councils as "the accuser of our brethren" (Revelation 12:10; see also Job 1:6-11; Luke 22:31).
