Christenberry Planetarium to Host Star of Bethlehem Shows

The Samford University Christenberry Planetarium will host its annual Star of Bethlehem show at select dates and times throughout December, beginning on Thursday, Dec. 3 at 8 p.m.

The show, which examines the iconic star from an astronomical, historical and biblical perspective, is meant to direct the viewer’s attention to the real reason for the season.

“The show is very much a prayerful meditation in preparation for Christmas,” Planetarium Director David Weigel said, “and it’ll be a good opportunity to sort of reorient your perspective so that you’re focused on the true meaning of Christmas.”

Scheduled to run through Dec. 20, each show is about an hour long.
