5blink is a small period-5 oscillator found by Scot Ellison in July 2011. It contains a blinker that is rephased over and over again.

Its stator includes a tub acting as a rock. This can be replaced with a boat, beehive, loaf, mango, small lake and most other still lifes with a similarly placed cell.

It give out a dot spark which can be useful for, e.g, the p50-based p90 glider shuttle.
