Evening of Astronomy: Star of Bethlehem

Caryl D. Philips Space Theater

Friday, December 21, 2018, 7:00pm - 7:30pm

For many centuries, the astronomical events that have been suggested as the inspiration for the Star of Bethlehem story have not been those that were flashy in the sky, but the ones with astrological significance.  Find out what astrology might have to do with the Star of Bethlehem and about the many proposed “stars” at December’s Evening of Astronomy!

Admission to this after-hours educational program is FREE to the public. Live observing will continue throughout the evening in the Apollo Observatory (weather permitting).
