Astronomers at www.space.com have a periodic astronomy article. This link brings you to an article about the North Star/The Star of Bethlehem and discusses various ideas of what it might have been. Also discussed are adaptions to conventional thinking as to when Jesus was born.... Pretty interesting.

And so it was, little k. Two or three planets converging to create the illusion of one bright star. Fascinating stuff. But I still don't get it as to why the early Christians felt that fixing the date in late December protected them.
