The Clark Planetarium to show “Star of Bethlehem”


December 7, 2015


Clark Planetarium will hold its annual “Star of Bethlehem” show at 7 pm on Tuesdays and Thursdays from Dec. 8-22.

The Shawnee State University Clark Planetarium will be holding its annual “Star of Bethlehem” show at 7 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays starting Dec. 8 through Dec. 22 in the Advanced Technology Center.

“Star of Bethlehem” answers questions such as who were the wise men, were there just three, did they come from Persia, Babylon or Ethiopia and many more by searching for a celestial object that could have lead the wise men to the Christ child. Discover what this event might have been like by looking at planets, shooting stars or possibly comets as possible guides that led the wise men to Jerusalem and on to Bethlehem.

The show is free to the public and no reservations are required. The “Star of Bethlehem” will replace the usual Monday/Thursday Planetarium show schedule. The normal public shows will resume in January.

For more information, please contact the SSU Clark Planetarium at (740) 351-3147 or at planetarium@shawnee.edu.
