I knew I was special!

My Dad pointed out this article to me today. Here are the salient points;

Researchers tracked the appearance of the ‘Christmas star’, which the Bible states three wise men followed to find Jesus.
Australian stargazer Dave Reneke used complex computer software to chart the exact positions of all celestial bodies and map the night sky as it would have appeared over the Holy Land more than 2,000 years ago.
He discovered that a bright star really did appear over Bethlehem 2,000 years ago – but pinpointed the date of Christ’s birth as June 17, and not December 25.

Just in case you were wondering why this makes me special (and in case you hadn’t worked it out) this means that Jesus and I apparently share a birthday!

Well, fancy!
