What's So Special About The Celestial Body That Shone Over Bethlehem?

There have been many attempts to explain the star of bethlehem said to have guided the three wise men to the birthplace of "JESUS" as a natural celestial phenomenon.It has been suggested that it might have been a comet or even a supernova, an exploding star.

             Many researchers believe the most likely possibility to be the meeting of two or more bright planets - a celestial event known as a conjunction- and there are a number of candidates in the relevant period of time.Among the possibilities are the rare triple conjunction of jupiter and saturn in 7 BC or the  conjunctions of venus & jupiter in 3 BC and again in 2 BC. However none of these hypotheses has so far been proven and none may ever be.
