HUTCHINSON, Kan. — A holiday tradition at the Cosmosphere Planetarium continues starting Friday.

"It's called Mystery of the Christmas Star," said Cosmosphere Educator Chuck McClary. "It talks about the story of Christmas. In particular, the star that the three kings followed from Babylon. It goes through several different theories about what that star could have possibly been."

Such a lesson has been around in Hutchinson for decades.

"The very first show that Patty Carey ever did over at the Fairgrounds in 1962 was about the Christmas star," McClary said. "That was on December 2, 1962."
