If it must be the same MC, you'll have to insert it in different places on
the timeline (using a new layer for each instance, since any encountered
keyframe will reset all MC's that exist in that layer).

Alternately, add a blank keyframe at the start of the MC. Give it the
action to Go To frame #N. At the end of the MC, place the action Go To and
Play frame #2. Now make copies of this MC, one for each star. Edit each
copy so that the number represented by N is different. Each MC will now
start by jumping to a different frame, although its loop time will be the
same. Now you can place all these MC's in the same frame in your movie.
The timeline can even be stopped and the stars will all twinkle.
