I think that the star, like Jonah 's fish, was a creation for the moment.

I think the star was a special placement of Jupiter and Saturn this year. The magi knew about some prophesies in the old testament, that must be the reaso0n why they set off. When these two stars were together for a while, they stopped moving west in the night and instead moved back for a while, because of the rotation of the earth. And that is likely to have happened over Betlehem.
