A multimedia video presentation, "Star of Messiah," will be shown on five evenings during December at the Christenberry Planetarium in the Samford University Sciencenter.

Presentations will be at 7 p.m. on Dec. 15, 17, 19, 20 and 22. The 60-minute show addresses questions that historians and scientists have long pondered about the star that appeared in the east, as cited in the gospel of Matthew. It is appropriate for all ages.

Admission is free. Groups can reserve special showings at additional times. For information, call planetarium director George Atchley at (205) 726- 4139.

This year's show is new and different from presentations of the past few holiday seasons, notes Atchley.
