What exactly was the star of Bethlehem?

I mean was it a Angel in a geostationary orbit?

Was it a planet defying physics?

Was it just a bright ball of fire God stuck up in the sky?

Was it a interstellar space ship from another galaxy?

What was it, not what you think it represented!

    2:1 After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem

    2 and asked, "Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star in the east and have come to worship him."

    3 When King Herod heard this he was disturbed, and all Jerusalem with him.

    4 When he had called together all the people's chief priests and teachers of the law, he asked them where the Christ was to be born.

    5 "In Bethlehem in Judea," they replied, "for this is what the prophet has written:

    6 "'But you, Bethlehem, in the land of Judah, are by no means least among the rulers of Judah; for out of you will come a ruler who will be the shepherd of my people Israel.'"

    7 Then Herod called the Magi secretly and found out from them the exact time the star had appeared.

    8 He sent them to Bethlehem and said, "Go and make a careful search for the child. As soon as you find him, report to me, so that I too may go and worship him."

    9 After they had heard the king, they went on their way, and the star they had seen in the east went ahead of them until it stopped over the place where the child was.

    10 When they saw the star, they were overjoyed.

    It was a star. The stars move in the sky. God controls the sky. I am told there are billions of stars. Its not hard for God to make one brighter and direct its path for these men.
