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. When they saw the star, they rejoiced with exceeding great joy.
So, this star stood over where the child was!
Don't take my word for it. Go outside tonight, go some distance from your house and find a star that's over your house but not over any other.
In fact, make it easier... find a star that's over your town and not over any other...
I wonder how the 'wise men' managed it.
Still. I can't see anyone getting away with a silly tale like this nowadays.
