Searching for the Star of Bethlehem

O star of wonder, star of light,
Star with royal beauty bright,
Westward leading, still proceeding,
Guide us to thy perfect light.

Today on Far Future Horizons we go in search of the Star of Bethlehem.

Astronomers, theologians, sceptics and believers have pondered the story of Christ’s birth and the star of Bethlehem. 

Over two thousand years ago, a bright star showed three Magi the path to the newborn Jesus. What was that star? Was it a star or was it something else?

In the deepest sense it scarcely matters, for what is most significant about the Star of Bethlehem is not whether it existed or what it was, but what it symbolizes. For those of us who grew up in the Christian tradition it represents a message of hope and the dawning of a new ethical philosophy by which we choose to conduct our lives.

For me personally the story of Jesus' birth and the Adoration of the Magi symbolises hope.

On behalf of all of us here on Far Future Horizons I would like to wish our readers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Prosperous  New Year.

May We All Find Peace and Prosperity here on our planetary home - The Good Earth.

Searching for the Star of Bethlehem

Journey back in time to see the night sky 2000 years ago. What was it that brought the Magi from the East to a little town in palestine? Who were the wise men? Were there just three? Did they come from Persia, Babylon or Ethiopia? Did they follow a visible star to Jerusalem? Was Jesus born 2005 years ago? Is December 25th his real birthday?
Star of Bethlehem takes you to the time of mystery, in a planetarium show produced by the Houston Museum of Natural Science that answers these questions and more, as audiences search for a celestial object that could have led the wise men to the Christ child. A planet was called a "wandering star." A meteor was a "shooting star." And a comet was a "hairy star" because its tail looked like a beard. These are all candidates in our search. See the new research of a triple conjunction that may have been the sign in the East of the new Messiah.

Exclusively shown in the Burke Baker Planetarium at the Houston Museum of Natural Science. This is a "warped" fish-eye version of the movie. Viewed inside of the Planetarium the experience surrounds you in an amazing immersive way!
