The Star of Bethlehem was Supernova SN 2009nw. Find out why!
iPTF14hls is an unusual supernova that exploded at least twice in the last 60 years alone. And three years after its second explosion, iPTF14hls fluctuated between bright and dim at least five separate times more.
[link to en.wikipedia.org (secure)]

The first thing that came to my mind when I read this article was the Star of Bethlehem. The gospel of Matthew talked about a mysterious star that appeared, disappeared, and then reappeared again a second time within a span of two years or less.

Thus, a supernova similar in nature with iPTF14hls, and capable of exploding multiple times over a period of several years can explain the Star of Bethlehem in the same manner the gospel of Matthew described it.

The only question in my mind was how to identify which supernova among a list of over ten thousand observed supernovae was the Star of Bethlehem. And to correctly identify the supernova which was also the Star of Bethlehem at the time of Christ’s birth, it is important to know first when exactly Christ was born.

In my previous video titled, “When was Christ born and when was he baptised? The Year, Month, and Day. Revealed at last!”, I concluded that according to the Julian calendar, Christ was born after sundown on Friday, January 9, 1 BC and before sunrise on Saturday, January 10, 1 BC.

Using the Gregorian calendar instead, Christ’s birth is dated after sundown on Friday, January 7, 1 BC and before sunrise on Saturday, January 8, 1 BC. And as I mentioned in my previous video, Orthodox Christians in central and eastern Europe and other parts of the world do celebrate the old Christmas day, or Christ’s birth, on January 7.
[link to www.whychristmas.com (secure)]

Now knowing the year, month, and day of Christ’s birth is still not enough to uniquely identify the star of Bethlehem, or the supernova associated with it. One has to know the exact time during the day, when Christ was born. And fortunately for us, a total lunar eclipse visible in Israel occurred on the very night Christ was born on January 10, 1 BC, according to the Julian calendar. And I believe Christ was born at precisely the exact moment when this total lunar eclipse was at its greatest eclipse.
[link to eclipse.gsfc.nasa.gov (secure)]

Since according to Matthew, the star of Bethlehem “stopped over the place” where the Magi first saw the baby Jesus, astronomically speaking, this means the star of Bethlehem was at the zenith of the sky, or directly overhead, where baby Jesus was seen. And thus, the constellation where the supernova, or the Star of Bethlehem belongs to, must have also been at the zenith of the sky at that time as well.

If we now use the Stellarium software we can see that at the time of greatest eclipse, which was also the moment when the Moon’s elongation was at its maximum on January 10, 1 BC, the constellation Leo was at the zenith of the sky in the Soreq cave, where I believe Christ was born. And knowing this immensely helped me to narrow down my search for the Star of Bethlehem to one of the supernovae specifically and only in the Leo constellation.

Locating the Star of Bethlehem in the Leo constellation should not be a surprise. Afterall, the town of Bethlehem where Christ was born belonged to the tribe of Judah, and this tribe is without a shadow of a doubt, represented by the constellation Leo. And this is based on how Jacob described Judah as a lion, and also on how the Book of Revelation described Christ as the lion of the tribe of Judah as well.

And this is how I discovered that the supernova SN 2009nw, located at the Leo constellation, was in fact the Star of Bethlehem.

The Star of Bethlehem identified, and its mystery finally solved. It will surprise you!

January temperatures in Bethlehem would have been too cold for shepherds to be active outdoors overnight.

Christ' birth most likely September 12th, 3-BC.
Wise men visit December 25th, 2-BC
Herod kills all infants under 2 years old in January of 1-BC.
Herod dies March of 1-BC.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 77201407

While it is true that January is the month in Israel that has the coldest average temperature, it is also the month that has the highest average rainfall throughout the year. Also, 3 months prior to January, that is, the period from October to December, was when rainfall starts to increase in Israel after having 5 months of lowest average rainfall starting from May until September.
[link to www.holiday-weather.com (secure)]

And this means that by January, the hills already become clothed with grass, and the shepherds, knowing this, take their sheep further to the fields and away from their towns.

Now when these grassy fields are particularly far from their towns, instead of leading the sheep to and from the fields and the towns, shepherds would rather enfold their flock in nearby caves in the field and watch over their flock throughout the night. And this was especially true whenever the temperature was relatively warmer than the average temperature for January.

In my previous video titled “The Star of Bethlehem & the true location of Christ's nativity at Avshalom or Soreq cave”, I mentioned that the Soreq cave, where I believe Christ was born, keeps the temperature and the humidity inside it constant year round. Thus, enfolding sheep inside caves in Israel during winter time actually poses no problem at all.

Also, note that the coolest temperature during January in Israel is usually 39°F. And for precipitation to begin falling as snow from the clouds, the air temperature at the ground should be cooler than 32°F. Thus, only in very rare occasions when the lowest temperature during January is lower than normal, does it ever snow in Israel.

No,it wasn't.

Supernovas don't transit and then become stationary.

The Magi weren't looking for exploding stars, they were observing the King Star Jupiter.

And neither is your King star Jupiter stationary either. Duh!

However, if a star or planet is seen in the zenith of the sky, it is at that moment in time when the star is neither rising nor setting, since its altitude is 90 degrees. And thus the star is observed to be temporarily stopping at that moment.

The Bible never said the star stopped forever in the sky where Jesus was seen by the Magi. Otherwise the Star of Bethlehem would still be seen unmoving in that part of the sky until now.

Re: The Star of Bethlehem was Supernova SN 2009nw. Find out why!
Now when was the first time the Magi saw the Star of Bethlehem explode and brighten up, approximately 2 years before the birth of Christ according to the gospel of Matthew? The supernova explosion of a star is an unpredictable event, and it was unlikely that the Magi were observing the sky with the hope of seeing one by chance. So what very important astronomical event instead were the Magi actually observing that time?
[link to www.universetoday.com (secure)] Venus and Jupiter’s Upcoming Conjunction, by Fraser Cain

A conjunction very much like the one occurring on the 5th [of November, 2004] occurred in August 12 of the year 3 B.C. That year Venus and Jupiter were only 10 arc-minutes or 0.16 degrees apart in the constellation of Leo the Lion. With such a narrow separation, light reflected from the two would seem to merge into one as seen with the unaided eye.

Some scholars have speculated that this close conjunction may have been interpreted as a sign by a group known as the Magi. The Magi, or wise men, were priests of an ancient religion known as Zoroastrianism. Could this close conjunction have been what sent the wise men traveling to a far off city known as Bethlehem?
 Quoting: universe today

The Magi from the East were observing this very rare Venus - Jupiter conjunction when all of a sudden and quite unexpectedly, supernova SN 2009nw, which I believe to be the Star of Bethlehem, exploded and brightened many times in magnitude right before their eyes. And since both the Venus - Jupiter conjunction and supernova SN 2009nw were located in the same constellation Leo, these astronomical events were observed by the Magi simultaneously. But wait, there is more.

The very rare Venus - Jupiter conjunction on August 12, 3 BC also coincided with the annual heliacal rising of Regulus, the brightest object in the constellation of Leo and one of the brightest stars in the night sky. The traditional name Regulus is Latin for 'prince' or 'little king', and the heliacal rising of Regulus on this day coinciding with the close Venus - Jupiter conjunction and the surprise supernova explosion of the Star of Bethlehem, were probably the reasons why the Magi from the East interpreted these astronomical events as the birth of a future king.

OP, I'll give you another hint: the Nativity wasn't in January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, or November. And it wasn't in any year except 6 BC. And it wasn't on any other night except the 17th through 18th at the Jupiter/Luna stationary conjunction.

Hope that helps. Keep searching.

Re: The Star of Bethlehem was Supernova SN 2009nw. Find out why!
Allow me to explain this conclusion a little further:

Matthew Robinson, in page 7 of his work titled “Ardua et Astra: On the Calculation of the Dates of the Rising and Setting of Stars” and which was published by The University of Chicago Press, dated the annual Apparent Morning Rising (abbreviated AMR) of Regulus every August 12 starting from 100 BC until sometime before 401 AD when this annual date changed to August 14 due to precession of the equinoxes.

Robinson defined Apparent Morning Rising, also known as heliacal rising or ‘first visibility’ as when:
The star crosses the eastern horizon shortly before the sun, and is thus briefly visible (for the first time). With every morning that follows, the interval between the star’s rising and sunrise increases: the star is visible earlier, and for longer. This [heliacal rising] is the first of many visible risings.
 Quoting: Robinson, Ardua et Astra page 3

Thus, the heliacal rising of a star, being the first of many visible risings after a period of invisibility due to its close proximity with the Sun, which outshines the star with its surpassing brightness, can be considered as the annual reappearance or rebirth of a star.

Now while the heliacal rising of a star is the first of many visible risings of the star, the Apparent Evening Rising (abbreviated as AER), also known as the visible acronychal rising, is according to Matthew Robinson, the last of these many visible risings of the star:
The star crosses the eastern horizon just after sunset. On previous days the star had crossed the horizon some time after sunset, and so its rising was easily visible. On subsequent days the interval between sunset and the star’s rising diminishes, and the sky is too bright for the star’s rising to be seen, and by the time the sky is dark the star is already some distance above the eastern horizon. Thus the apparent evening rising is the last visible rising of the star after sunset.
 Quoting: Robinson, Ardua et Astra page 3

And according to Matthew Robinson’s calculations, this annual acronychal rising of Regulus was every January 9 of the year starting from 100 BC until sometime before 401 AD when this annual date changed to January 12 due to precession of the equinoxes. (Ardua et Astra page 7)

Now remember, in my previous video titled “When was Christ born and when was he baptised? The Year, Month, and Day. Revealed at last!” I concluded that Christ was born after sundown on Friday, January 9, 1 BC and before sunrise on Saturday, January 10, 1 BC.

Thus, the first time the Magi from the East saw the Star of Bethlehem, was on the day of the year 3 BC of Regulus’ annual first visible rising, namely August 12, and the second time the Magi from the East saw the Star of Bethlehem, was on the day of the year 1 BC of Regulus’ annual last visible rising, namely January 9. Thus, the two times the Magi from the East saw the Star of Bethlehem in a period of more than a year but under 2 years, coincided with the first as well as the last visible rising of the star Regulus.

OP, I had the craziest idea. What if Mary held the king child Jesus like the Moon holds Jupiter when they are in stationary conjunction in Aries? And I thought, No way, yo! And I was like, Woah, man!

Hey, OP, you know what else is groovy kewl?

To the Magi, Myrrh was the incense of the Moon, and Frankincense was the incense of Jupiter. And Gold was the metal of the Sun.

Isn't that like totally wack, dude?

And like...it was December 17th, the first day of the Saturnalia when the Sun enters Solstice week.

So, I was like, DOOD, that's like the Moon and Jupiter and the Sun or something, dood! LOL

Hey, magi star hunter bro doods...I found another groovy kewl fun fact.

In Iraq, the principal lambing season of Awassi ewes is in November, and in Lebanon, the Syrian Arab Republic and Israel in December-January.



There's like literally one month (from mid-December to mid-January) when the shepherds would have been watching the ewes at night.

Isn't that way kewl?

And that's from the Israeli Department of Agriculture, doods. Merry Christmas, doods :-)
