The Star of Bethlehem
Friday 20th December 2019
Start time : 20:00

Speaker : Prof. David Hughes

What was the star of Bethlehem? Did it really exist? What does it tell us about the birth of Jesus?...
If it did exist, then it is one of the most amazing phenomena ever witnessed by man...

This talk will look into the astronomical, biblical, historical, religious and astrological evidence about the star. It asks a whole series of questions and works out the answers as far as possible...

David W. Hughes was a professor of astronomy at the University of Sheffield, where he worked since 1965. Hughes has published over 200 research papers on asteroids, comets, meteorites and meteoroids. He has also written on the history of astronomy, the origin of the Solar System and the impact threat to planet Earth
