Attorney Frederick Larson examined the biblical account in the Gospel of Matthew, chapter 2[59] and found the following nine qualities of Bethlehem's Star:[60][61] It signified birth, it signified kingship, it was related to the Jewish nation, and it rose "in the East";[62] King Herod had not been aware of it;[63] it appeared at an exact time;[64] it endured over time;[65] and, according to Matthew,[66] it was in front of the Magi when they traveled south from Jerusalem to Bethlehem, and then stopped over Bethlehem.[67]

Using the Starry Night astronomy software, and an article[68] written by astronomer Craig Chester[69] based on the work of archeologist and historian Ernest Martin,[70][71] Larson thinks all nine characteristics of the Star of Bethlehem are found in events that took place in the skies of 32 BC.[61][72] Highlights[73] include a triple conjunction of Jupiter, called the king planet, with the fixed star Regulus, called the king star, starting in September 3 BC.[74][75] Larson believes that may be the time of Jesus' conception.[72]

By June of 2 BC, nine months later, the human gestation period,[76] Jupiter had continued moving in its orbit around the sun and appeared in close conjunction with Venus[75] in June of 2 BC.[77] In Hebrew Jupiter is called "Sedeq", meaning "righteousness", a term also used for the Messiah, and suggested that because the planet Venus represents love and fertility, so Chester had suggested astrologers would have viewed the close conjunction of Jupiter and Venus as indicating a coming new king of Israel, and Herod would have taken them seriously.[70] Astronomer Dave Reneke independently found the June 2 BC planetary conjunction, and noted it would have appeared as a "bright beacon of light".[78] According to Chester, the disks of Jupiter and Venus would have appeared to touch[68] and there has not been as close a Venus-Jupiter conjunction since then.[70]

Jupiter next continued to move and then stopped in its apparent retrograde motion on December 25 of 2 BC over the town of Bethlehem.[75] Since planets in their orbits have a "stationary point",[68][70] a planet moves eastward through the stars but, "As it approaches the opposite point in the sky from the sun, it appears to slow, come to a full stop, and move backward (westward) through the sky for some weeks. Again it slows, stops, and resumes its eastward course," said Chester.[68] The date of December 25 that Jupiter appeared to stop while in retrograde took place in the season of Hanukkah,[68] and is the date later chosen to celebrate Christmas
