The star of Bethelem
Men have always looked up at the sky. Astronomy and also astrology have been part of the humankind knowledge since long years ago. Ancient cultures have studied and learned from the stars.
Many of the greatest landmarks of the ancient were oriented to a star or constellation. There were also observatories built to watch the sky. We still tend to relate important events to particular star conjunctions or other sky phenomena.
However, modern scientists don’t have yet a concluding answer to the question ‘which of all the known stars is the real star of Bethelem?’ They think it could have been not a star but the conjunction of more than one celestial body, such as a comet, a supernova or a very bright (and yet unknown) star.
What do you think? What would you like the Star of Bethelem to be?
