    I have been reading an interesting theory that it was actually a conjunction between Jupiter and Regulus in the constellation of Leo which occurred in about 2-3 BC. Quite an impressive astronomical event by the sounds, the likes of which have never been seen again. I was skeptical at first but after some doing some reading I am ... curious. It certainly appears to fit the facts much better than the most of the other theories. I would like to get hold of more articles which can confirm/disprove this theory. Here are a couple of articles worth reading though, if you are interested:

    Some people claim it was a commit, others claim it was the planet Mars passing in front of a star. No one actually has a solid answer to this question.

    Which ever particular star sign that the Magi interpreted as revealing that the King Is Born.

    Source(s): The Magi were astrologers.

    I saw a couple of documentaries on the star and they both said it was 2 planets.

    Venus and Jupiter lined up with the sun. I guess it shone both night and day.

    Comet, super nova, myth, etc... By the way it's described most likely a comet.
