The Mackie Planetarium on the NOC-Enid campus will present two showings of the Star of Bethlehem on December 5, at 6:30 pm and 8 pm. The show is titled: “The Heavens Declare the Glory of God: Psalm 19:1.”
Our visitors will see what the sky over Babylon looked like to the Wise Men 2,000 years ago. We will show how planetary orbits and some complex mathematics combined with the alignments of the stars alerted the Persians in Babylon to events that had been prophesized by Daniel 500 years before. The planetarium will show how events in the night sky guided the Wise Men to Bethlehem. We will show how the sky and the Star appeared over Bethlehem as seen from Jerusalem on that first Christmas morning.
There is no admission charge but we will accept donations of food for Our Daily Bread. Additional shows may be scheduled for groups by calling Fritz Osell at 580.548.2314.
