    It wasn't a literal "star" it was most likely an Angel or rather a host of Angels.

    We still refer to meteorites as "shooting stars" it is the form we still speak in today how did they speak back then? This is to show how it was understood by the writer & the reader of that time.

    & we know the Angels came & rested over the place Jesus was born rejoicing:

    "Peace on Earth, good will towards men."

    I have to believe that it was a miracle because of this verse.

    Mat 2:9 When they had heard the king, they departed; and, lo, the star, which they saw in the east, went before them, till it came and stood over where the young child was.

    It's part of the astrological constellation Virgo, the whole story of the birth and death of Christ is based upon the sun and astrology.
