  • A series of Christmas planetarium shows start in December entitled “Star of Wonder.” The 2018 schedule is as follows: Sat., Dec. 15, Fri., Dec. 21, and Sat., Dec. 22 from 7-8 p.m. and Sun., Dec. 23 and Mon., Dec. 24 from 2-3 p.m. in the SMSU Planetarium located in the Science and Technology building room 108.

    What was the Star of Bethlehem? Was the “star” a planet or maybe a supernova? Is there a scientific explanation for the “star?” In this program, the steps of the Magi are retraced in their 600-mile search for the Star of Bethlehem. Educational and entertaining, “Star of Wonder” uses scientific data, religious history, beautiful imagery, and traditional music to explore the mystery that has puzzled astronomers and theologians for centuries. This production offers several possible explanations for the famous star-like object that, according to historical records, led the wise men and shepherds to the place of Christ’s birth. Was the Star of Bethlehem a planet, a comet, a meteor, a supernova? Or was it simply an unexplainable phenomenon? This show also explores how astronomers use historical records and scientific calculations to determine the time of Christ’s birth, and shows how planets move and meet with stars and how calendars have changed through the ages.

    Tickets are $5 at the door. Show up early to ensure a ticket and good seat.
