IT\'S AN ASTRONOMICAL MYSTERY. A strange star is claimed to have appeared at the birth of Jesus of Nazareth. This site is an investigation of the story found in the Biblical Gospel of Matthew, a story often called the \'Star of Bethlehem.\' It brings the words of Roman and Jewish historians alongside the visions of ancient prophets. It mixes \"modern\" mathematicians with murderous turmoil in the Roman imperial court. It combines all these with astronomical facts which no one disputes. And it concludes that the star was a real event. Come solve this age-old mystery for yourself...
\"About 99.9% of the Star of Bethlehem stuff is nutty, but this isn\'t that. It\'s well-researched and reasonable.\"
