Journey back more than 2,000 years to Bethlehem as we seek to discover a scientific explanation for the star sighted by the wise men. We'll investigate possible dates for this occurrence and look at recorded sightings of significant astronomical events during this time frame. We'll see which of these signs in the sky could have been remarkable enough to cause the wise men to travel across the desert from Babylon to Bethlehem.
