There is also the theory that the Star of Bethlehem was a re-
appearance of the shekinah glory from the OT (the cloud and pillar of
fire that led Israel through the wilderness). I first heard this
suggestion from a Gordon College astronomy professor at an ASA
meeting many years ago. After reviewing all of the many theories, he
made his case for this one. This suggestion has biblical precedent,
and explains how the star could lead the magi and then stop over the
correct house.
