The Star of the Magi was the stellar event when that "Star of Bethlehem" was a supernova or hypernova occurring in the nearby Andromedia Galaxy, explained an Oregon State University astronomer here at Bray’s Point Tuesday night; while looking for the Geminid meteor shower that is also scheduled to fill the heaven’s Dec. 14. This story of the Magi’s star -- “at its rising” when Jesus was born -- is also part of the history of “our solar system,” adds the astronomer who proposes there’s “UFO entity evidence” that accompanied the Three Kings story when they were drawn to the Star of Bethlehem. Moreover, in 1614, German astronomer Johannes Kepler determined that “a series of three conjunctions of the planets Jupiter and Saturn occurred in the year 7 BC,” while Kepler also argued that a “planetary conjunction” could create a Nova, which he linked to the Star of Bethlehem, or the “Star of the Magi.”
Geminids allow Earthlings to view meteor shower and possible UFOs
According to local astronomers group from nearby Oregon State University, the Geminid meteor shower will peak this evening, Dec. 14.
“The Geminids are simply a debris stream from an asteroid called Phaethon 3200,” explained a local astronomer, while a Washington Post report noted how the Geminids will “radiate near the constellation Gemini.”
“The Geminid meteor shower, one of the year’s top night light shows, peaks tonight. But due to a nearly-full moon, the meteors will be somewhat more difficult to see. Nevertheless, NASA expects a decent showing between 10 p.m. local time and sunrise (on December 14),” reported the Washington Post Dec. 14.
“Observers with clear skies could see as many as 40 Geminids per hour,” predicts the NASA Meteoroid Environment Office.
Fireballs in the sky remind “watchers” of local UFOs
Moreover, Space.com states how the “Geminids can produce stunning fireballs,” that local Oregon UFO “watchers” here at Bray’s Point say “could confuse people who think they’re seeing UFOs.”
In turn, this “watchers” group notes how “the return of the Geminids always seems to accompany a rash of UFO sightings out West and throughout the world in the same way as it was back during the time of Christ’s birth.”
“On a clear night, skywatchers have reported seeing up to 120 meteors per hour during the peak of the Geminids in previous years,” states Space.com.
At the same time, Oregon UFO “watchers” here at Bray’s Point told Huliq that the “best way to catch either the Geminids meteor shower or UFOs (that are on the rise at this time of the year) is to be in a place that’s away from city lights with an open view of the heavens.
Star of the Magi also viewed as an “astronomical object”
To view ancient star charts, the night sky as it appeared looking south from Jerusalem on Nov. 12, 7 BC, between 6 and 9:30 p.m. – according to modern translations – featured the star “at its rising, that astronomers believe was a “great astronomical event, heliacal rising.” In turn, the translation of this phrase was “in the East.”
Meanwhile, other theories from ancient astrology suggest the “Star of the Magi” was a comet since Halley’s Comet was visible in 12 BC and another object, possibly a comet, nova or even Geminids, was reported to be seen in both ancient Chinese and Korean records from 5 BC. Likewise, ancient writers – in records found in Egypt – stated how comets or even UFOs were “hanging over” Bethlehem at the time of Jesus birth.
At the same time, a special UFO report -- that first appeared in the December 1978 edition of OMNI magazine by famed ufologist Mark R. Chartrand III – suggests three front-running theories for the Star of the Magi – that announced the Christian Era – was:
-- A grouping of planets
-- A nova, or exploding star
-- A miracle
Moreover, Chartrand writes that “no major personage of ancient history was born without some celestial spectacle being claimed to announce the event.”
“The more time-honored explanation of the Star of the Magi is that the star was a triple conjunction of the planets Jupiter and Saturn, to which grouping Mars later approached, in the constellation Pisces,” writes Chartrand, while explaining that “a conjunction is a close passage of one celestial object near another. Such events – such as the Geminids meteor shower – among the five planets visible to the naked eye are not uncommon.”
So what was the Star of the Magi?
“Many people think the Star of the Magi was a nova. Others say it was a miracle – an answer that is not an explanation, and thus outside scientific consideration,” writes Chartrand. “Like UFO sightings, the evidence is insufficient for us to know for certain.”
