Posted on Wednesday, 26 December, 2007 |

It's long been a puzzle for Christian astronomers, and now a professor from the University of Notre Dame thinks he has it figured out - almost, anyway.

The star was explained by astronomers as the current Northern star of that age. Now its Prxima Centauri or something. Back then it was a different star. A bright star.

back in 1994 or 1995, my 3 cousins and myself were outside on Christmas Eve around 2-3am, Central time, and had seen this enormous bright star...or what we believed to be a star. In fact, we were convinced that is exactly what it was. It had four prominent points...with smaller ones surrounding. We tried to get our parents outside to check it out but they thought we were being silly and they were busy playing poker. I do wish an adult confirmed this site, but to this day, my cousins still remember that night, as do I. Just wondering what anyone thinks of that.

That Star is Sirius is it not? The Stars of Orion's belt lines up with Sirius during the winter solstice. They point towards the point in the horizon where the Sun rises and days start to get longer. Alot of ancient religions personify this astrological event... the current being Christianity.
