Random stoner thoughts
Can a star “blink” or cease to emit visible light for a period of 24 hours or more? Does anyone have any evidence for or against the possibility. Looking for a scientific rather than religious discussion. Thanks

Some stars are rotating, that's why it looks like they are blinking.

Stars don't blink

It was probably a UFO parked in front of it

Sorry, blink was a horrible word choice. Just wondering if any scientific phenomena exists where a star would, turn off the lights, for a period of time. Maybe a celestial restructuring or something, or that star, that happens every 10,000 years.

Can the light of a star in close orbit around a black hole ever escape its pull and continue to be emitted into the known universe?

Not completely, hence I question.
I know technically it is impossible. Was just wondering if there existed any phenomena of stars “disappearing” and reappearing. Outside the realm of an eclipse by another body.
Surely some weirdness exists in the universe.

Then I think you answered your own question. I'm not aware of any phenomena that results in a star to "go out" or "go dark" other than when they die. Even then, they are still emitting far more than is visible by the human eye.

And as you mentioned, outside of an eclipse from another object, there is no reason a star should go out or blink.
