Journey back 2000 years to Bethlehem and discover a scientific explanation for the star the wise men followed to find the baby Jesus. The Appold Planetarium’s newest holiday show. “The Mystery of the Christmas Star,” investigates possible dates for the birth of Christ and looks at recorded sightings of significant astronomical events during this timeframe.
During “The Mystery of the Christmas Star,” guests will see how signs in the sky could have been remarkable enough to cause the wise men to travel across the desert from Babylon to Bethlehem to see the newborn King. Shows are scheduled for Dec. 3, Dec. 10 and Dec. 17 at 7:30 p.m.
Admission is $5 for adults and $4 for children under 12 and for Lourdes students presenting their student ID. Shows at the Appold Planetarium are limited to 50 and often sell out.
