Sometimes we, as amateur astronomers, find it difficult to see the Star of Bethlehem as merely a biblical phenomenon or a miracle. It was a celestial phenomenon and therefore we also want an astronomical explanation.
We all know it: The Christmas story. The three wise men from the East followed a star in the sky, which showed them the way to a new-born King. What they found was the little baby Jesus. For most of us this is a heartwarming story, especially at Christmas - whether we are religious or not.
But what does science have to say about this? Is there any evidence of this celestial phenomenon? We have put together 5 different theories for you in an infographic. So you can understand the subject quickly and easily.
Do you want to integrate the infographic into your website or to share it? Please do that!
And now off to light a candle and eat cookies :-)
