COLUMBUS, Ind. — Bob Kasting, the retired chairman of the science department at Columbus East High School and the volunteer operator of the school's 60-seat planetarium, is presenting an astronomy-and-history show, "The Star of Bethlehem," opening at 7 and 8 p.m. Wednesday in the planetarium at the Columbus East High School, 230 S. Marr Road.
The presentation, which is not affiliated with the school, runs through Saturday and then Wednesday through Saturday each of the next two weeks. It highlights a mix of Scripture and science, according to Kasting.
It highlights possible explanations for a bright light over Bethlehem some 2,000 years ago at the time of the birth of Jesus of Nazareth in Scripture.
The show is accompanied by a variety of better-known carols, according to Kasting.
Tickets cost $5, available at the door.
