Christmas star as planetary conjunction. Artwork of a possible Christmas Star in the night sky of the year 7 BC. Traces of the planetary conjunction of Jupiter and Saturn are seen in the night sky in the constellation Pisces. There were several conjunctions of Jupiter and Saturn in 7 BC within a period of 8 months. It is thought that Jesus was born at around this time, and that this planetary conjunction may account for the Christian biblical story of three wise men following a star to find the infant Christ.
