Back by popular demand, our Star of Bethlehem planetarium presentation allows you to explore the question "What was the Star of Bethlehem?" Howard Hochhalter, one of South Florida Museum's staff astronomers, will 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.
