The Mystery of the Christmas Star

What did the wise men see in the sky that was remarkable enough to undertake a journey across the desert from Babylon to Bethlehem? What sign made them expect the birth of a king?

Take a journey back 2000 years to Bethlehem and discover a scientific explanation for the star the wise men followed to find the baby Jesus. The Appold Planetarium’s holiday show The Mystery of the Christmas Star investigates possible dates for the birth of Christ and looks at recorded sightings of significant astronomical events during the time-frame. This modern telling of the Christmas story is sure to charm and captivate audiences of all ages.
