At Christmas, the TRUE story of the Star of Bethlehem might be of interest.
The star was Venus, the one Jesus identified with Himself, the Bright Morning Star (Revelation 22:16). I am a biblical scholar and retired engineer. I have published several articles on my obscure site, but have never gained notice, possibility because Venus is too obvious.
Venus, also called the day star and the dayspring, could do what it did because it was the brightest star. It could rise with the sun (a heliacal rising once every 1.6 years), then be visible throughout the day as the daystar and set in the west before or after the sun.
