‘Mystery of the Christmas Star’ opens Tuesday

The holiday season officially opens Tuesday at the Center for Earth & Space Science Education at Tyler Junior College, with the premiere of "Mystery of the Christmas Star."

The show runs Tuesday, Nov. 22, through Saturday, Dec. 31, in the center's 40-foot, domed theater.

The 30-minute film takes the audience back more than 2000 years to Bethlehem, to discover which ancient star was the one the Magi followed to find the baby Jesus.

This modern retelling of the Christmas story also investigates possible dates for the birth of Christ and looks at recorded sightings of significant astronomical events during this most important time in history.

What signs in the sky could have been so intriguing as to cause the wise men to cross a desert in search of the newborn King?

"Mystery of the Christmas Star" seeks to answer those questions and many more.

The Center for Earth & Space Science at TJC is located at 1411 E. Lake St.
