Posted:I was really bored and decided to do a search for poi on ebay, as you do, and i found this, the poi arent special but the picture is - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=1039&item=5519120734&rd=1

Posted:I agree that it is probably just someone tracing out the star. You can see a more intense flame at each of the points, which leads me to believe it was time with a slow shutter speed and held just a tad at each point.

Posted:well... the laws of physics kind of point against it... but don't say that it's totally impossible, if one were to have one's poi burning very brightly, and very big, and one were to almost whip them from corner to corner with fair accuracy one might be able to pull off a move as such... but to get it so blazingly accurate it'd be damn near impossible...
