Personally, I like "appears". It may seem mystical and magical, but with
some of the projects I have worked on, mystery and magic was involved in
getting those little buggers to appear.

Some smarmy alternatives:

* manifests

* becomes readily apparent

* coagulates

* announces itself in a display of light and motion

* makes its presence known

* shoves its red, swollen ass in the air in hopes of attracting a mate (for
those who like the intransitive use of displays)
