Back by popular demand, “Star of Bethlehem” explores the question “What was the Star of Bethlehem?” Staff astronomers lead you on this journey to Jerusalem some 2,000 years ago using The Planetarium’s ability to travel through time and space. Take a look at the skies and see what the magi saw. Was the star a comet, a supernova or something else entirely? Join us to explore the possibilities.
