THE STAR OF BETHLEHEM

Friday 8 December at 7:30 pm
No admission fee. For ages fourteen and older.
Fifteenth and final year!

What exactly occurred in the Middle East 2000 years ago? Can modern scientific calculations shed light on the puzzle? LSU physics professor Brad Schaefer will use current theory to take the audience step-by-step toward the solution to the mystery. If you’ve never experienced this lecture before, don’t miss out. This is Professor Schaefer’s fifteenth consecutive year bringing this incredible presentation to HRPO patrons. During his career he has published in Sky & Telescope magazine, discovered a long-lost ancient atlas, appeared on a National Geographic program and earned an invitation to the Nobel Physics Prize ceremony.

Professor Schaefer is leaving Baton Rouge after a storied and successful career. Please join us for his last Bethlehem talk at HRPO.
