The book of Matthew describes a “star that rose in the East” as leading “magi” to the birthplace of Jesus. Could this star, depicted in artwork for nearly two thousand years, have been an astronomical event? A supernova? A comet? A planetary conjunction with great significance? Come speculate and learn about the heavens and wonder as astronomer Chip Kobulnicky presents celestial possibilities that may underlie this storied event.
