The Story of the Star in the East

2011-12-adoration

Because it’s Christmas Eve and I like astronomy, I thought I’d share this article Hillsdale College’s newsletter Imprimis published back in December of 1996. The author, Craig Chester, discusses the astronomical events that could have led to the appearance of the Star of Bethlehem, drawing on accounts from the Bible as well as historical and scientific evidence of what was going on in the sky during that particular time period. The link to the original article is below. So come all ye science nerds. Read and geek out.

Cool, eh?

Christ is born! Glorify Him!
