I think ghunchu'wI' has the right idea with 'blink'.  I just don't see any
convenient way to express it.  {wovtaHbe'bogh Hov} probably means "star that
isn't shining any more", and {wovqa'taHbogh Hov} probably means "star that
is in the process of shining again."

Maybe something like {wov 'ej wovqa'bogh Hov}.
