    LAST CHANCE TO SEE STAR OF WONDER!
    Take a journey back in time this holiday season to rediscover the story behind the Star of Bethlehem in the Adler Planetarium's Star of Wonder, the museum's longest-running sky show and one of Chicago's favorite holiday offerings.
    Star of Wonder examines the theories behind the celestial event that prompted the Magi (Three Kings) to travel to Bethlehem. Was this heavenly light an exploding star, a brilliant comet or an unusual grouping of planets? This holiday sky show presents a surprising and dramatic conclusion based on careful exploration of both ancient astronomical records and modern computer calculations.
    Relive your memories of this classic story one last time before the show is retired in the Adler's historic Sky Theater.

    Please see: Adler Planetarium, Chicago, IL
