Watch the Christmas Star of Bethlehem tonight...
Northern Cross upright in West now....

The star Deneb marks the top of the Northern Cross, and the star Albireo marks the bottom. Tonight you can find the Northern Cross shining fairly high in the west at nightfall, as seen from mid-northern latitudes. It sinks downward during the evening hours, and stands proudly over the west-northwest horizon mid-evening

The Northern Cross is what’s known as an asterism. In other words, it’s not a constellation but simply a noticeable pattern of stars. It’s part of the Constellation CYGNUS THE SWAN

The Black Hole X-1 Cygnus, the Star of Bethlehem, is located in a prominent star grouping named the Summer Triangle. Its three bright stars, Deneb (the Lord Comes), Altair (the Wounding), and Vega (He Shall Be Exalted) echo the message from Genesis 3:15 of a “Seed of Woman” who would be “Bruised in the heel” and “crush the head of the Serpent.”

X-1 Cygnus is located in the Constellation Cygnus (The Swan) which is also known as the Northern Cross. Interestingly, the Black Hole is located on the Northern Cross in a position corresponding to the spot where the “Bruised” heel would have been nailed to the cross.
To find the Star of Bethlehem’s location this December, look in the Western sky just after sunset.

The Northern Cross appears to be standing upright, and the three stars of the Summer Triangle are also viable. The location of X-1 Cygnus, the Star of Bethlehem, is about half way between the cross bar and the foot of the Cross.
So this year for Christmas, when you are telling the story of the Wise Men, you can go outside just after dark and point to the Star of Bethlehem they followed.
