Irene Worthington Baron used over sixty NASA astronomy computer programs to search skies of 2,000-years ago for evidence and proof of the Christmas star. The author reports confirming each discovered birth announcement of Jesus Christ by using multiple astronomy computer programs.
The titles of the NASA computer programs used by the author are listed in the illustrated book, Unraveling the Christmas Star Mystery, at the URL: http://www.irenebaron.com, and at the end of this press release.
Ms. Baron stated, Just because a spectacular celestial event occurred in the dawn sky of 2,000- years ago did not mean it was part of Jesus Christs birth announcement. The event had to have the correct associated symbolism that was used by ancient priests, astronomers, astrologers, and cosmologists referring to the birth of the new and most powerful God to be born in the universe.
The author correlated interpretations of celestial symbols and symbolic events used by the star watchers of Christs time with the actual events as they occurred in the dawn sky. The difficulties she encountered during the research are included in the book.
Readers will find text references of the ancient symbolism in the book correlated with endnotes that are listed by chapter. References are listed in the newly published digital book, Unraveling the Christmas Star Mystery, at the URL:http://www.irenebaron.com, and at the end of this press release.
According to Ms. Baron, there were ten major, celestial events announcing the birth of Jesus Christ, the last being the position marker over Bethlehem. The events created what she considers to be the greatest birth announcement in the history of mankind.
Individuals using astronomy computer programs are invited by the author to verify the celestial events she discovered. In her book she identifies each event by day, hour, month, and year.
It has become common knowledge that the star watchers of 2000-years ago studied the sky at dawn. Participating individuals must therefore set the time of their searches to dawn in the time zone of Bethlehem.
It is common knowledge to current astronomers that ancient astronomers, astrologers, priests and cosmologists used symbols and symbolism to interpret star movements prior to the Babylonians of 4,000-years ago.
The movements of the stars and planets in the heavens are precise and mathematical. The author therefore concluded that the ancient star watchers, well versed in mathematics and astronomy, were able to make predictions of star movements years in advance. Ms. Baron stated it is logical to conclude that having advance knowledge is what enabled the entourages of wisemen/magi/astronomers/priests, and their support personnel, ample time to travel from their homelands to Bethlehem in Judea to pay homage to the new God and become, perhaps, the first gentiles to worship Him.
Ms. Baron learned the details concerning the ancient interpretations of symbols and star movements by using abstracts, books, papers, and periodicals concerning ancient history and archeology including studies of ancient writings, wall carvings, art, astronomy, and historical artifacts. As stated earlier, these references are included at the end of this press release. A few examples of the resources identifying the symbols and symbolism of the ancient astronomers, astrologers, and cosmologists and their interpretations include:
Archaeoastronomy and the Roots of Science by E. Krupp, AAAS Selected Symposium 71. Westview Press.
The Norton History of Astronomy & Cosmology by J. North, published by the W.W. Norton & Company.
Echoes of the Ancient Skies: The Astronomy of Lost Civilizations by E.C. Krupp, published by Harper & Row Publishers.
The Reports of The Magicians and Astrologers of Nineveh and Babylon with editor R.C. Thompson, published by Luzac & Company.
The author reports from her research that the spectacular birth announcement events began in July of that eventful year when the ancient wandering star gods Venus, Mars, and Jupiter were closely lined up in the dawn sky. At opposition, they had their full faces brilliantly illuminated like neon signs. Symbolically, astronomers were being asked to pay attention for what was to come. From that point on, significant and spectacular symbolic events happened rapidly.
The author found the ancient dawn sky gods moved in unique ways to help create the impressive Christmas star events. According to her research, each celestial event provided further symbolic evidence that the new God being born on Earth was destined to become the most powerful God of the Universe.
Ms. Baron stated, The ancient star watchers were probably shaking in the sandals when they interpreted the phenomenal and spectacular events. The predicted birth of the greatest God in the universe was probably, to them, the biggest event to ever happen on Earth.
According to her references, the ancient priests and astronomers assigned different attributes to each of the wandering stars, including Saturn. Their various symbolic beliefs concerning the Moon god of knowledge and their all powerful Sun god of creation are also discussed and referenced in the book.
Using references to verify her findings, Ms. Baron explains the specific celestial symbolic interpretations of ancient civilizations including the Akkadians, Asians, Assyrians, Babylonians, Chinese, Egyptians, Mespotamians, Persians, and Sumerians.
The digital book was written and illustrated by the author to enable persons ages twelve and older to understand the information presented. Astronomy knowledge needed to understand the birth announcement events is explained in an easy to comprehend format.
The digital book, Unraveling the Christmas Star Mystery, is available from major electronic book sellers such as the Amazon Kindle Store, Barnes & Noble eBooks, and the Sony Reader Store.
One reviewer reports:
Unraveling the Christmas Star Mystery is a thorough, accurate and spellbinding account of the Christmas star phenomenon based on numerous NASA computer programs, Biblical passages, historical records, illustrations on ancient monuments, coins, and legal seals dating back three thousand or more years. The scientific data with ancient observations and beliefs form a precise explanation of the birth of Jesus and the associated phenomenon of the Christmas star. This text is a good source of information for the scholar, teacher, and population in general. Recommended highly for Biblical Scholars.

The public domain, astronomy computer programs were sent to the author by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration education library. She used their computer programs to discover, verify, and report the astronomy events listed in the digital book: Unraveling the Christmas Star Mystery. The computer program titles include:
