          you can create a movieclip with a star on frame 1 that fades to zero _alpha and shrinks in to 1 width/height on frame 10 and an empty keyframe on 11 that contains a stop.

          give this movieclip a linkage id and you can use an onMouseMove() handler to attach this movieclip to the current _xmouse, _ymouse position.
