This season of festivals will be the brightest owing to the lucky stars.
If you look up to the sky on the night of 21st December, you can witness the Star of Bethlehem returning. This was the bright guiding light for the 3 Wise Men who journeyed to seek baby Jesus.
This rare astrological episode last took place during the Middle Ages, 800 years ago. During this event, the planetary bodies of Jupiter and Saturn align themselves in such a manner that they appear to be conjoined but remain closely situated. This creates a dazzling spectacle.
Experts have suggested the possibility of this being the same star which was followed by kings Balthazar, Caspar, and Melchior almost 2,000 years back.
This tale is written in Matthew’s Gospel that states the occurrence when these 3 wise men came to Jerusalem. They asked King Herod about where the king of the Jews born was. They also said that they followed the rising star to pay homage to that child.
