The History of the Christmas Star

The Star of Bethlehem is well known symbol of Christmas. Astronomers and scientists have attempted to identify the star that is written about in the Bible that led the Wise Men to Bethlehem. They have come up with several possibilities.

First, Haley's Comet is known to have been visible over Bethlehem in 11 B.C. Second, In 7 B.C. , it was a conjunction of Jupiter, Saturn, and possibly Mars, in the constellation Pisces (traditionally, Pisces was associated with Israel), so that the light from these planets may have seemed to come from a single source when viewed from Earth.

Third, the Star of Bethlehem may have been a supernova. A supernova is a star that suddenly becomes very brilliant and then after a relatively brief period of time, will fade into darkness. This theory is one of the more likely possibilities. If the Star of Bethlehem was a supernova, it may have shown brightly for a year or more and then faded out again. Such a nova may have appeared in the constellation Virgo.
