A multimedia video presentation, "Star of Bethlehem," will be shown three times during December at the Christenberry Planetarium in the Samford University Sciencenter.

Presentations will be at 7:15 p.m. on December 18 and 20, and at 3:30 p.m. on December 21. Groups can reserve special showings at additional times.

The 45-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. For information or to schedule a group showing, call planetarium director George Atchley at (205) 726-4139.
