'Star of Wonder' in the East

A spectacular image of Comet Lovejoy, which recently survived a close encounter with the Sun, was captured by International Space Station Commander Dan Burbank as the object appeared over Earth's eastern horizon. Burbank described the view as "the most amazing thing I have ever seen in space." Robin Scagell of the Society for Popular Astronomy suggested the Star of Bethlehem could have been a comet like Lovejoy. More at The Telegraph.
